Water Treatment Systems
What is Water Treatment?
Access to clean water is important. Untreated or insufficiently treated water can contain harmful waste, chemicals, and bacteria. Water treatment is the process of removing these harmful contaminants from the water both to improve its quality and make it safe to drink and bathe in. While our water is regulated through public water systems to become safe to use in our homes, sometimes the “clean” water that comes through contains chlorine and other chemicals that you may not want. Fortunately, Hiller provides additional water treatment services that will help remove those potentially dangerous chemicals from your water.
What is Hard Water?
Most local water supplies in the country provide ‘hard’ water with dissolved minerals like calcium and magnesium. Hard water can cause a number of problems such as:
- Clogged pipes due to limescale, which reduces water flow and pressure
- Corrosion inside appliances like washing machines, water heaters, and dishwashers
- Damage to skin and hair
- An increase in soap and detergent usage, as hard water requires more to keep your dishes and laundry clean
Our water quality solutions can help prevent all of the problems caused by hard water.
Types of Water Treatment
There are many different types of water treatment processes that help clean out any harmful chemicals from your water. From sand filtration to distillation to reverse osmosis, all of these methods are great ways to make your water cleaner and safer to use. At Hiller, we focus on two types: water filtration and water softening. Water filtration is a process when water is passed through a filter to remove all of the contaminants. Water softening occurs when calcium and magnesium found in hard water are removed. Both of these processes help make your water taste better, smell better and work better for you and your appliances.
