Common Water Problems

hardwater

Hard Water

Hard water has high mineral content. Your water may be hard if your faucets are stained with a white residue or soap scum that seems impossible to scrub off. Hard water can cause mineral build-up in your home's pipes and water-using appliances, which can cause problems like low water pressure and frequent replacement of water heaters. Many people with hard water have dry skin, itchy scalp, and unhealthy/dull hair. Our top-of-the-line Water Softeners can take care of your hard water.

iron

Iron

If your water tastes metallic or leaves behind reddish staining, iron may be present. Iron is the result of water flowing over iron-bearing rocks. You may notice iron stains at your shower head, kitchen sink, or bathroom faucets. Iron may collect in pipes, or faucets, resulting in clogging. When various attempts to take care of iron don't work, the problem can leave home owners very frustrated. Don't despair! Our highly trained team can offer quality solutions to take care of your iron problem. 

chlorine

Chlorine

Chlorine, a well known chemical, is found in municipal water supplies. It is used to disinfect water supplies and carries a harsh smell and taste. Unfortunately, chlorine can lead to problems such as skin irritation and fading colors in your laundry. Many people don't like the taste of chlorinated water, causing them to purchase packaged drinking water. Additionally, too much chlorine has been shown to be harmful to your health. We have a variety of treatment options that can remove chlorine from your water.

shells-sulfur

Sulfur

Sulfur (caused by hydrogen sulfide) smells like rotten eggs and is a relatively common problem around the Lehigh Valley. This foul-smelling gas is created by oil deposits and decaying vegetation beneath the earth’s surface. If you think your water supply contains sulfur, we recommend scheduling a free in-home water consultation so that we can properly diagnose and treat your unique sulfur problem.

rural-home-water

Nitrates

The presence of nitrates in water is typically caused by fertilizers. Well water is exposed to nitrates when fertilizers aren't fully absorbed by soil or crops. Contamination occurs more frequently in homes next to extensive farmlands. When ingested, nitrates can cause organ failure, delayed childhood development, and reproductive system issues. Nitrates are odorless and tasteless, but can be detected through water testing

bacteria-water

Bacteria

While many people assume their water is bacteria-free, the reality is that it's easy for bacteria to infiltrate well water. Bacteria comes from many sources, including animal waste and septic tank seepage. If left untreated, it can cause intestinal issues when consumed. The DEPEPA, and Penn State advise homeowners to test their well water annually for bacteria. Ask us about how to complete your test, which is sent to a State Certified Lab.

We had an unusual issue in our 2y old home - an iron-forming bacteria in the water - luckily it posed no health risk, but really stained the tubs, grout, etc. Another group tried to fix the issue, and after 2y of various missteps finally said they were not able (long story). We spoke to Long's and in about a week the problem was solved (!) - and they had a long-term plan for maintenance and follow up. They were responsive, professional and had a clear understanding of this issue and how to fix it, and keep it fixed. Jim came out initially to evaluate the issue and system in place, spoke with us at length, and within a few days formulated a solution. He was clearly invested in the project from start to finish, and made multiple contacts and trips out. My wife and I were truly impressed, and appreciative. Very highly recommended for any issue relating to water treatment.
