Water Quality

Frequently Asked Questions

If your home appliances are wearing out more quickly than expected, it could be due to hard water. Hard water contains high levels of minerals such as calcium and magnesium, which can accumulate and cause scale buildup inside appliances. This buildup can lead to inefficiencies, increased energy usage, and ultimately, a shorter lifespan for appliances like dishwashers, washing machines, water heaters, and even your coffee maker.

Mainstream offers comprehensive solutions to protect your appliances from the detrimental effects of hard water. Our water softening systems remove the minerals responsible for scale buildup, ensuring your appliances operate more efficiently and last longer. By treating your water, you can reduce wear and tear on your appliances, saving money on energy costs and avoiding premature replacements.

Don’t let hard water shorten the life of your valuable home appliances. Mainstream’s team of experts can assess your water quality and recommend the best water softening solution for your home, providing peace of mind and extending the longevity of your appliances.

Unpleasant changes in your skin and hair after showering can often be attributed to the chlorine content in your home’s water. Chlorine is known to strip away natural oils from your skin and hair, leading to dryness and irritation. Additionally, the hardness of your water plays a significant role in how your skin and hair feel post-shower. Hard water contains high levels of minerals like calcium and magnesium, which can leave residue and affect the health of your skin and hair.

While some buildings and localities naturally have soft water or are equipped with filtering systems, it’s essential to understand the water quality in your own home. An easy initial step is to look up water hardness by your zip code, which can give you a general idea. For more accuracy, water hardness testing strips are available and can provide a precise measurement of your home’s water hardness levels.

To combat the effects of chlorine and hard water, Mainstream recommends considering a whole-house water filtration or softening system. These systems ensure that all water in your home is filtered, including showers and sinks to toilets. This significantly improves water quality for your skin and hair. While investing in a whole-house water filter or softener is an investment, with costs ranging from $1,000 to $5,000, the benefits are substantial. These systems can filter up to 1 million gallons of water, offering a long-term solution to your water quality issues.

Mainstream is dedicated to providing solutions that enhance the quality of life in your home.
Our expert team can help you choose and install the perfect water filtration or softening system to suit your needs, ensuring that every drop of water in your home contributes to your well-being.

If your tap water has an odd taste or smell, resembling rotten eggs or sulfur, it’s likely due to the presence of hydrogen sulfide and certain bacteria in your water system. These issues can arise in various places, including drains, water heaters, wells, and inside pipes, where bacteria find a conducive environment to grow.

Mainstream offers comprehensive solutions to address and resolve these water quality issues, ensuring you have access to clean, fresh-tasting, and odor-free water. Our team of experts can install advanced water filtration and purification systems tailored to your specific needs. Options include activated carbon filters, reverse osmosis systems, and UV water purification systems, all designed to remove contaminants responsible for odd tastes and smells effectively.

Additionally, we provide pH neutralizers to balance your water’s pH level, enhancing taste and making the water more pleasant to drink. For bacterial contamination, Mainstream offers professional services like shock chlorination to eliminate bacteria at the source, ensuring a long-term solution beyond mere filtration.

Trust Mainstream for reliable, trustworthy service that addresses all your water quality concerns, bringing peace of mind and improved health to your home. Our experienced team is committed to providing the correct solutions, ensuring you and your family enjoy the best possible water quality.
