Water Softeners 

When it comes to hard water, the removal of certain minerals is what makes your water soft. Although, it takes efficient water softeners to make that happen. When you are in need of services in water softeners, trust the experts at Griffis Drilling Specialists. 

Depending on who you ask, it may mean different things. Putting it in simple terms, “soft” water has been processed so that excess levels of dissolved minerals are removed.

Water treatment Gainesville, FL Specifically, it is “hard” water (containing calcium, magnesium, bicarbonates, and sulfates) that has been put through water softeners.

Iron in Water

Dissolved iron is a common well water problem. Iron in water can either appear clear or leave reddish-brown rust particles. High levels of oxygen in water mixed with iron and manganese can cause the water, as well as the food cooked with it, to have a metallic flavor. Iron deposits can sometimes build up in pipelines and tanks, reducing the water pressure supply.

Sulfur in Water

Sulfur in your water supply is easily recognized by its offensive odor.  Hydrogen sulfide gas causes the "rotten-egg" or sulfur water smell.  Hydrogen sulfide in water causes no known health effects; however, high concentrations do change the taste of the water.  Hydrogen sulfide dissolved in water corrodes metals such as iron, steel, copper and brass. The corrosion of iron and steel from sulfur forms ferrous sulfide or "black water."

Hydrogen sulfide in water can blacken silverware and discolor copper and brass utensils. Sulfur water makes cleaning clothes very difficult because using chlorine bleach in sulfur water reduces the cleaning power of detergent.

Hydrogen sulfide in water also corrodes exposed metal parts in washing machines. Iron and manganese, often present with hydrogen sulfide, turn the water black and greasy-feeling.

If untreated, the water stains laundry, washing machines, sinks and kitchenware. When used in the laundry, chlorine bleach reacts with iron and manganese forming dark rusty or brownish stains on clothes.
