CONTAMINANTS IN YOUR WATER
Most families in our area of Western Missouri notice these issues too.
“I have got to admit this whole covid thing has put a damper on things but we had Monica come out and tell us everything about EcoWater and as a Family of 6 with 4 children we did not realize how nasty our water was! But thankfully they had an amazing person come to us and it has made our lives so much better! We also got the Air purifier too and the air feels so much lighter when we walk in the house. And another great thing our service Technician that came out Tyler he was so cool, explained everything, and gave us his personal number if we had any questions! If I could give more than 5 stars I would! AMAZING people! Thank you Monica and Tyler!!!!” – Brandy Barnum – A 5-Star Google Review

“All I can say is wow. Our experience with eco water has been nothing less than excellent. Monica and her demonstration were wonderful. She made it so much fun and our son adored her. The night actually ended up being quite fun but also so informative. We got our system installed today and Matt was phenomenal. You can definitely tell he is a professional.

“We received the installation back in April 2020, it’s been amazing having the water softener and Reverse Osmosis. We spent a ton of money on bottled water gallon jugs. Not anymore. We actually fill our water bottles at home. The Air Purifier system is great, it’s so quiet don’t forget to clean it. The service since the installation has been great. Ashley at the office was extremely helpful!” – Kevin Peterson – A 5-Star Google Review
Hardwater Buildup & Water Stains
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.
Rust & Iron Stains
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.
Water That Smells/Tastes Like 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.
Bad Tasting or Contaminated Water
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.
Water Smells Like Rotten Eggs
There are typically two water contaminants that can cause your water to smell like sulfur or rotten eggs, one is Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) and the other is iron or sulfates. Occasionally, a rotten-egg smell in your water could also be caused by a water heater or by sewage pollution in your water. If you’re on city water, the most likely explanation is your water heater.
Treatment –Depending on the root cause of the issue there are affordable options available through EcoWater of Kansas City. We offer free water testing to determine the source of the smell. There’s no obligation to purchase equipment from us as our goal is to provide valuable information to help you make the best decision for your home and family.
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.
According to the New York Times: “The Environmental Protection Agency says streams tapped by water utilities serving a third of the population are not yet covered by clean-water laws that limit levels of toxic pollutants.”
Furthermore, lead is rarely treated by municipalities and is picked up in water during its journey to your home’s tap. Lead can easily be removed by a Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System from EcoWater of Kansas City.
A new study by the Environmental Working Group reports that MO 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 local area water in certain areas were pushing the levels proposed as a safety limit by authorities. This contaminant has been proven to cause cancer. A reverse osmosis drinking water system can help bring contaminants like Chromium 6 to a safe level.
GenX & Other PFAS
Western Missouri has been heavily impacted by the discharge of the chemical GenX (a man-made compound) and other PFAS. While normal chlorine filters will not reduce these kinds of contaminants, a Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System from EcoWater of Kansas City can reduce them significantly – in many cases to a level that is safe to drink.
