Can Water Treatment Make My Water Not Smell Like Rotten Eggs?

You turn on your faucet and suddenly—ugh! That rotten egg smell! You may have hydrogen sulfide in your water. Hydrogen sulfide is a compound that occurs naturally in wells with inadequate wellhead protection but can also enter water supplies in runoff from sewage treatment and other manmade processes. The jury’s out on what the long-term health effects are at low concentrations, but we do know that hydrogen sulfide corrodes your plumbing, tarnishes your silverware, stains your laundry and fixtures, and keeps your water softener from working right. Luckily, there are many options for getting rid of it. Call Angel Water today, and we’ll help you get rid of that gross swampy smell!

Will a Chlorine Injection System Remove Iron Bacteria?

Iron bacteria may be forming deposits in your well—did you know this slimy rust-colored buildup is made up of not just living bacteria but also dead bacteria and their secretions, sheathes, stalks, and other waste? Gross! These bacteria make your water smell and taste musty and swampy, and stain your fixtures and clothes brown or yellow. The slime deposits also corrode plumbing equipment and clog screens and pipes, wasting your hard-earned money. Don’t let this happen to you: have Angel Water test your drinking water, and get rid of that bacteria with a chlorine injection system!

What Is Reverse Osmosis and How Can It Help Me?

How does a reverse osmosis (RO) system work? First you need to understand diffusion and osmosis. Diffusion is the quality water has where it always tries to spread out evenly in all directions. Osmosis is when it’s kept from being able to do that by solutes, such as minerals or other dissolved materials, whose charges pull water together on the more concentrated side of a semipermeable membrane. Reverse osmosis, then, is forcing the water back through the membrane, leaving behind solutes that include contaminants like lead, mercury, volatile organic compounds, and more. You don’t want to be drinking those—which is what makes an RO system so valuable for purifying your water.

Why Annual Service Visits Costs Less Than Bottled Water Delivery

If you buy bottled water, then you’re paying too much for your drinking water. The average American family spends $615 per year on bottled water at the store, and getting bottled water delivered only reduces this to about $250 per year. Water delivery for a workplace can be more than twice that amount. In contrast, when you have a certified drinking water system from Angel Water, an annual service visit for routine maintenance only costs $139. That’s hundreds of dollars saved over the years—so not only will your water be cleaner, but Angel Water will save you money in the long run, too.

Cost of Maintenance vs New Equipment

It’s easy to take your appliances for granted and forget they’re even there, let alone that they need maintenance. This especially applies for drinking water systems that are hidden in your basement or under your sink. However, “out of sight, out of mind” is a dangerous path. If you neglect to perform maintenance now, you’ll be paying big money on repairs once the system finally fails. Think of it like a car: oil changes are cheaper than engine repairs. So, before you let your system reach that breaking point, call Angel Water and schedule your annual inspection and maintenance visit today!
