LAFAYETTE AREA WATER

All domestic water supplies in the Lafayette area start out as well water. This is obtained from an underground aquifer that extends to the Great Lakes. This water is typically about 20 grains of hardness (very hard). Hardness is composed of calcium and magnesium dissolved in the water. Locally the water picks up varying amounts of iron and possibly sulfur.

CITY WATER

When the cities pump the water out of the ground the add chlorine as a disinfectant, fluoride, and a sequestering agent to keep the iron in suspension. Chlorine is a poison gas and is carcinogenic when consumed over long periods of time. We recommend chlorine removal as the water enters the home. Chlorine combines with other elements in the water to form chloramines. Chlorine is also absorbed into the body through bathing, not just consumption. Fluoride is also a poison and can only be removed with a reverse osmosis drinking water system. You want to install a water softener to remove the hardness, iron, and sediment which are picked up in the distribution system.

PRIVATE WELL WATER

When you pump your own water you receive whatever is in your area. You donít add chemicals so typically hardness, iron, sulfur and possibly sand are what is to be removed with a water softener, and possibly an iron filter.
