Water Systems

Water quality can affect your home, your appliances and your health. Your water pipes bring iron, manganese and other hard elements into your home which can affect the efficiency of appliances. Your health can be affected by natural elements such as radon, uranium and arsenic that may be found in your water.

Maine Radon Solutions can test and treat your water by creating a water treatment solution. Below are the most common issues we treat. If you are experiencing an issue that is not listed below, please contact us.

Hard Water

Hard water is the result of dissolved calcium and magnesium. They become less soluble at high temperatures and form a white solid. This characteristic is what causes most of the problems with hard water. The most recognizable symptoms of hard water are soap scum in the shower or tub and hard water spots. Hard water can leave mineral deposits in hot water heaters and tankless coils, reduce the efficiency of these units and completely block passages in and out of the heaters.

Water softener:This is the only treatment for hard water in a residential situation. It can be often used in conjunction with another system if multiple elements are being treated.
