Common water contaminants in Colorado Springs & Surrounding Areas

Hardness Minerals

What it is – hard water contains calcium and magnesium minerals which bond with everything they touch leaving “limescale” in their wake.

Treatment – Our guaranteed water softener provides the best option for soft water on the market. It improves the water throughout your entire home while protecting your appliances and fixtures.

Iron

What it is – Iron can come in a couple different forms including dissolved and non-dissolved. Both of which can leave red/orange stains on your sinks, tubs, and toilets and can be extremely hard to remove. Iron can also cause bacteria to grow and let off an unpleasant smell.

Treatment – The EcoWater ECR 3502 is rated to remove up to 15 ppm of clear water iron. In most cases, our equipment can remove triple the iron compared to competitive brands. Should your water run red out of the faucet, an ETF AII9 Air Injection filter ahead of your water softener will usually fix the problem. In severe cases, a separate iron filter may be needed.

Chlorine

What it is – Chlorine is a chemical used by municipal & local water treatment plants to reduce harmful bacteria in the water supply. While this sounds good, chlorine and chloramines can cause a bacteria of their own to grow called trihalomethanes (TTHM) which is quite unsafe to drink or bathe in.

Treatment – The most efficient Chlorine reduction filter is Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) or Catalytic Carbon. Due to the high level of chlorine added to water by cities, you will really appreciate your water with chlorine reduction. See our Whole House Filtration page for more information.

Chromium 6

A new study by the Environmental Working Group reports that [servicesarea] drinking water contains hexavalent chromium, a toxic metal that has been linked to cancer. While the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency does not require the testing for the metal, the survey found that levels in the Colorado Springs & Surrounding Areasarea water in some areas were pushing the levels proposed as a safety limit by authorities. This contaminant has been proven to cause cancer. You can search your zip code to see the amount in your municipal water supply here: https://www.ewg.org/tapwater/?SOURCE=BOOMTRAIN

Dirt & Sediment

What it is – dirt & sediment is just as it sounds. This is typically most common in well water or surface water that hasn’t gone through a treatment facility.

Treatment – Dirt and sediment are found in almost all water supplies and will decrease the efficiency and lifespan of your appliances. For example, sediment in a water heater can prevent the heat from transferring to the water in the tank once sediment has built up in the bottom. Our whole house filtration system can help with this problem.

Other Contaminants

What they are – common contaminants in our area can include nitrates, lead, arsenic, pharmaceuticals, and more. These are not included in the free water test, however, we do offer full laboratory testing at an affordable price.

Treatment – Protecting the water in your home is important, however ensuring the purity of the water you are putting in your body is even more crucial. Our Reverse Osmosis drinking water system will give you a peace of mind that your drinking water is healthy, and you are going to fall in love with this drinking water system that can provide up to 50 gallons per day of delicious water.

We have had our system a year. We like the system. We had... Universal Water come do a system check because we have Cherokee Metro really hard water. $257 changed the filter and rest the sink filters and checked the system downstairs. Tech told my wife wait 24 hours and the light will turn green. Light never turned green the whole weekend. I called the following week and told to reset the system again, I did and waited the 24 hours. Still the annoying amber light that is suppose to be green is still amber. I called later in the week the front desk person said she would talk with the service manager and call back. Still waiting on that call 7 days later. Piss poor customer service, and I would like my light to be green again. Please.Edit:Universal Water came out to correct the problem. Our system operating as it should now.read more

We are loving our new water system. Immediately the house... is cleaner. No more hard water/iron staining on everything! - Imagine what it could do to the pipes we just replaced. Candice has been very helpful throughout the process and Sean installed everything great. He even came back out to do a French drain that was needed for the system. This system is worth it. Thanks for everything you guys do!read more

I had Damian, Rainer, Lesley, and a few others come out and... install my system. These guys were awesome. They did a really good job making sure I wasn’t uncomfortable having a few guys I didn’t know in my home. They made sure that any little mess they made was cleaned up. It was like they were never even here. Definitely recommend the system just so y'all can meet them.read more

On time and cleaned up well after themselves. Only issue is... they forgot to turn the valve back on to the refrigerator water supply so we ran out of ice and had a bit of an issue finding the problem. Otherwise, all good and so far would recommend them to others.read more

We have had the water treament systems installed and used... for almost 60 days now. The difference it has made, is beyond expectations for us. The water no longer smells like a massive amount of chlorine every time you turn on a shower. The dishes no longer have a hard water deposit when thye run through the dishwasher either. Our laundry smells cleaner and the taste of the water is 100X better than it was before we had the system installed. We no longer have to purchase bottled water to make bottles for the baby, or to drink daily. The installers were fantastic. They were in and out quickly and had everything set up and running within an hour or so. We did get the RO system installed as well and that has been a life changer for our kids drinking water. We highly recommend this to all our friends and family.read more
