Drinking water systems in Lakeville have been growing in popularity and the professionals at Haferman Water Conditioning have received many questions about them.

Water pouring in glass isolated on whiteQ: How do I know if my drinking water could benefit from a drinking water system?

A: The first thing you should do is call us for a free water analysis and estimate. This test will check your water for total hardness, chlorine iron, dissolved solids and pH level. Our free estimate can help you decide which drinking water systems to choose from and help determine your budget.

Q: Are there any special circumstances that should make me consider drinking water systems?

A: If you are expecting a new baby, if there are any unexplained illnesses or if anyone is pregnant or nursing in your home, this may be a great time to look into having a water analysis.

Q: How do I know if I need a water softener?

A: When a house has hard water, that is, water that contains a high amount of certain types of minerals, we will generally recommend a water softener. While hard water isn’t dangerous to consume, it can shorten the lifespan of your water-using appliances, increase your electric bill and put ugly white spots all over your dishes and glassware.

Q: What is reverse osmosis?

A: Reverse osmosis drinking water systems use a semi-permeable membrane filter to clean your drinking water. This membrane filter traps impurities using a semi permeable material that only water can pass through to produce the finest quality water. Odors and impurities are filtered out and all that’s left is great tasting water!

Q: What is your most popular drinking water system?

A: Only one drinking water system is so advanced that it can eliminate nearly everything from your home’s drinking water that isn’t water. And that’s the Kinetico K5 Drinking Water Station. It is certified in removing more impurities than any other system and can be customized to meet your home’s specific needs.

Q: Do you have a more basic drinking water system?

A: If you’re looking for a basic, more budget-friendly reverse osmosis system, then Kinetico’s AquaKinetic A200 is an excellent choice. It provides good, clean drinking water, just like the Kinetico K5, but without the advanced options.

These are just a handful of our most popular questions about drinking water systems. For more information on drinking water systems in Lakeville, call Haferman Water Conditioning at 952-894-4040 or contact us for a Free Water Analysis & Estimate.
