Water from both private and public sources most often has dissolved minerals from the ground such as calcium, creating what is commonly known as hard water, which causes mineral deposits, stains, dry skin, harm to appliances/water heaters, etc.  Aquanology offers water softeners and related equipment service to eliminate the hard water issues you are experiencing.

Impurities such as sediment, clay, iron, etc, create cloudy or dirty water, making it unappealing for even basic usage. From a basic replaceable water filter to more complex backwashing water filtration systems, Aquanology has a system to meet your needs. Water from natural wells can contain offensive odors, such as sulfur. Water from public supplies most often contains chlorine, which come fid to be unpleasant to taste or smell. Aquanology provides quality water conditioning systems to produce refreshing water that pleases.

Water Purification Systems

Water from wells, aquifers, and especially surface water lakes may contain harmful pathogenic bacteria, such as total coliform and E. coli. Some water sources are contaminated with lead, nitrates, or other health impacting substances. Water with high mineral concentrations most often has an unpleasant flavor and can lead to other negative health impacts. But there’s no need to panic and resort to purchasing bottled water. We have various water purification systems ranging from basic drinking water purification to whole home water systems to meet your needs and budget. We employ UV disinfection or chlorination to help keep your water safe from bacteria.

Canandaigua, NY City Water

If you are using public water supplies in the town or city of Canandaigua, your water most likely come from a very local and prominent source, Canandaigua Lake itself.

The city of Canandaigua and the town of Canandaigua obtain the public water supplies from the City of Canandaigua water treatment plant 3772 West Lake Road, Canandaigua, NY

The public water from these sources has water hardness levels ranging from 7 to 9 grains per gallon, coming into the moderately hard to hard water range, according to US Geographical survey. While this is not as hard as surrounding well water, a water softener still provides noticeable benefits. A water softener replaces the hardness minerals which cause staining and scaling on fixtures and appliances. A water softener can extend the life and maintenance intervals of appliances and water heaters. Issues like dry skin problems and excessive soap usage caused by hard water will be reduced by a water softener.

Basically, all of today’s public water is treated with chlorine for disinfection purposes. For this reason, if you are on public water in the Canandaigua area, there is usually little concern for bacteria contamination in your water. However, chlorine has an unpleasant taste and odor, and is best removed with a water filtration system after it enters your home. Contact us to learn more about a carbon water filtration system for your home.

Public water supplies usually have some levels of trihalomethanes or other disinfection by-products thought to be potentially carcinogenic or cause other negative health effects. Old plumbing and water lines may contain levels of lead. Most public water treatment processors also add fluoride, which is a controversial substance. If interested in producing high quality drinking water for your home in Canandaigua, ask about our drinking water reverse osmosis systems, which are designed to reduce such common contaminants. 

But how does one know what contaminants may be in a water supply, since some of them are tasteless and odorless? Others, like lead, can be picked up from plumbing or fixtures in a home. Excellent question, that’s why we advise to test, not guess. Aquanology provides various water testing options. Learn more about our water testing here.

Canandaigua, NY Well Water

Well water is still highly in use in rural areas surrounding Canandaigua. Local water quality analyses usually reveal moderate to very hard water from wells dotting the Canandaigua countryside. A water softener is recommended as a water treatment method to remove water hardness. Benefits of a water softener include longer appliance and water heater life, as well as less soap usage and less staining. 

In well water supplies in Canandaigua and surrounding areas, some common metals found in varying levels are iron and manganese. In elevated levels, these metals can produce a noticeable metallic taste in the water. Iron is notorious for leaving behind hard-to-remove orange and brown stains, while manganese typically leaves black stains. A common solution for iron or manganese is a water softener or a specialty water filtration system.

Well water in Canandaigua can be contaminated by bacteria. This depends largely on the depth of the well, or if there are nearby factors that could introduce bacteria such as a sewer system, or if surface water is apt to enter the well somehow. A common, cost-effective water treatment method for bacteria is a UV disinfection system.

In the beautiful hills south of Canandaigua, many homeowners struggle with the infamous well water contaminant hydrogen sulfide, more commonly called sulfur. The worst problem with sulfur is its significant “rotten egg” smell, but it also causes black stains, black sediment, and corrosion of plumbing and fixtures. Common methods used to remove sulfur include aeration or injection of peroxide or chlorine, along with some method of filtration.

Total dissolved solids levels (TDS) levels often follow hardness level, because they are based on the total mineral content of the water. As the TDS levels in water get higher, usually the taste and palatability of the water decreases. Some areas just to the east of Canandaigua can have such high levels of TDS in the well water, that the water is corrosive. A drinking water reverse osmosis system is usually recommended to reduce the TDS by up to 95% and produce drinking water that is clear and refreshing. A drinking water RO system is also recommended to remove nitrates, which is found in water, usually as a result of fertilizer run-off from agricultural operations.
