Common well water contaminants in Central Minnesota & South Metro Area

Hardness Minerals
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.

Nitrates

Nitrate (NO3) is a naturally occurring form of nitrogen (N) which is very mobile in water.  It is essential for plant growth and is often added to soil to improve productivity.  Water moving down through soil after rainfall or irrigation carries dissolved nitrate with it to groundwater.  In this way, nitrate enters the water supplies of many homeowners who use wells or springs.  Drinking water high in nitrate is potentially harmful to human and animal health.

EcoWater’s advanced ERO375 Reverse Osmosis System will provide you with outstanding drinking water that removes nitrates up to 99%.

Iron
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.

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.

Bacteria

Different types of organic matter can cause your water to taste bad, often fishy or earthy.  Bacteria in water takes many forms and the best way to know the type of bacteria present is to have your water professionally tested.  A common symptom of bacteria in water is slime build up in the toilet tank.

After we determine what form of bacterial contamination is affecting your water supply, the EPS 1000 microbiological drinking water purification system is often the solution of choice.  Certified to meet or exceed the EPA requirement for the removal of bacteria, viruses and cysts such as giardia and cryptosporidia, the EcoWater EPS 1000 can be installed on both municipal and well water supplies.

Sulphur & Methane Gases

Dissolved gases can cause cloudiness and bad odors in water.  It can also cause pipes to hammer and spitting of gas and water when a faucet is opened.  Methane gas is odorless and occurs naturally in some underground water wells.  Hydrogen sulfide gas smells like rotten eggs and is occasionally present in underground aquifers.  Dissolved gases in water can be aggressive to piping systems and cause wear on valves, seats and washers.

If you have a rotten egg odor in your water you may not need any equipment at all. Should the odor be noticed only when using hot water, the problem may be simply fixed by servicing the water heater. If your cold and hot water, however, is found to have a trace of hydrogen sulfide gas, our Sanitizer Series may be the solution for you. In severe cases of hydrogen sulfide and methane gas, or multiple water problems, we also offer the Sentry Open-Air, a system that is like your own private water treatment plant, offering pristine, crystal clear water without leaving unwanted chlorine or other trace chemicals that may be found in municipal water systems.  

Chromium 6

A new study by the Environmental Working Group reports that Ohio 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 Ohio water in some areas were pushing the levels proposed as a safety limit by authorities. This contaminant has been proven to cause cancer. You can search your zip code to see the amount in your municipal water supply here: https://www.ewg.org/interactive-maps/2016-chromium6-lower-48.php#.WXYljtPyu-l 

Other Contaminants

What they are – common contaminants in our area can include 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.

I can’t say enough about the quality experience I’ve had... with Tri County Water Conditioning. Chris has done some maintenance work on my water softener and more recently Nick and Andy worked on plumbing repairs. They all “attacked” the work with enthusiasm, educated me about what they did and what to look for in the future, and left me with the confidence of knowing who to call the next time the need arises. These guys are awesome!read more

Nick WillmsonWe recently purchased a Tri County Water... system (softener, RO, alkaline) through Costco. The master plumber Nick Willmson who came to do the install was fabulous! He was kind, knowledgeable and very professional. He took the time to make sure everything was done perfectly, explained how it all worked and answered all our questions. The water tastes great and love the soft water for showers, laundry and such. I highly recommend Nick Willmson and Tri County Water Conditioning if you are in need of soft water etc....read more

I was in need of a bathroom counter/ sink installation. My... neighbor recommended I check with Tri County Water Conditioning. They were at her home and agreed to stop over after they were done at her home. Within an hour they had an acceptable bid, to include picking up and delivering my sink and materials, plumbing it and disposal of the used materials. They offered to be out during the next couple of days, too! They came on time as promised and completed the job expertly. When shutting off the water in my lower level, Nick noticed that my water heater was leaking. I had been told to watch it previously by another service rep from another company. I looked and saw the damage and then asked for a quote and then when it could be scheduled. Nick coordinated the immediate delivery of a water heater by Bill. Nick and Andy installed it within a couple of hours and left with the old materials and no mess!! Outstanding service!! I would recommend them without hesitation!!read more

Can't speak highly enough of this group. They are... fantastic. Finally, a plumber who truly cares about its customers. We recently bought a home with EcoWater and AO Smith water systems in it. Several other larger plumbing companies in town have looked this stuff with nothing but question marks, and then just pushed us HARD to buy brand new equipment. The TriCounty team is different. They communicate super well, quickly, and they seem to actually care about diagnosing things before jumping to "just replace it". I sure hope they keep this up.read more

I connected with Tri County Water Conditioning through... Costco as they were the EcoWater dealer in my area. I ended up getting a ERO 385 system that's installed downstairs in my utility room. They ran a water line to my refrigerator water dispenser and to my kitchen sink with a nicely matched EcoWater faucet next to my kitchen faucet (both brushed nickel). I love that we didn't need to install it below our kitchen sink with the filters and water tank taking all that space. The sales rep, Melissa, was great to work with. Not only was she able identify if our setup would work, but also pointed out some plumbing improvements we could do. We ended up adding plumbing work in addition with the RO system. The master plumber, Nick, added a cool looking dual hot/cold frost proof water faucet outside our house so we can fill up kiddie pools with nice warm water. Overall, the install of the new faucets and RO system was clean and I'm very happy with the result. Thank you!read more

When the stay at home order due to COVID-19 pandemic placed... our entire family at home 24/7, we know our 1 gallon jug refills of water from our local grocery store weren't going to cut it any longer. We have high levels of arsenic in our well water and don't drink or cook with it. Tanya at Tri County Water was thorough in giving me our options and we decided to rent a water cooler from them. The water tastes great, the bi-weekly delivery is perfect and reliable, and we're very happy with our decision to use Tri County Water. Highly recommend them for your water/water treatment needs.read more
