Well Water Testing and Treatment:
Residents of Helotes and surrounding areas are aware of the inherent hardness in the local water. We have tested some wells that were over 175 grains of hardness (any over 3 is hard – over 10 is extremely hard). In addition to hardness, some wells have Iron, Manganese, Hydrogen Sulfide and most wells have some types of microbial life. This makes treating Helotes wells challenging.
We have done the testing, research and engineering and are very happy to let our neighbors know that we have the best solutions for all Helotes’ well water problems. These solutions are substantially less expensive than any of the “competition’s” prices, better products and longer warranty.
Municipal Water: Please read the attached Water Quality Report(s)
It begins with being transparent about what are the problems with our water. Once that problems are determined, then an engineered solution can be provided. We have this solution. This includes the best water softeners, catalytic carbon tanks and Reverse Osmosis for Helotes Municipal waters.
Important Health Information:
Our drinking water contains low levels of arsenic. Arsenic is a mineral known to cause cancer in humans at high concentrations and is linked to other health effects such as skin damage and circulatory problems. Is any level of Arsenic in your drinking water acceptable?
Presence of Cryptosporidium and Giardia in our local drinking water. These are cysts and parasites that have mutated to become Chlorine resistant. Their current slippage rate is 5-10% in local testing. They love warm temperatures which makes our local water a great place to live.
Infants, some elderly, or immuno-compromised persons such as those undergoing chemotherapy for cancer; those who have undergone organ transplants; those who are undergoing treatment with steroids; and people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, can be particularly at risk from infections.
Other Contaminants that are present in our local water include:
- Microbial Contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife runoff into our water.
- Inorganic Contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally occurring or result from storm water runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
- Pesticides and Herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban storm water runoff, and residential uses.
- Organic Chemical Contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum
production, and can also come from gas stations, urban storm water runoff, and septic systems.
- Radioactive Contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
- Chlorine and Chlorine/Ammonia Disinfection byproducts. With hotter temperatures and longer pipelines Chlorine is not lasting to disinfect water from the plant to home. Ammonia is being added, with this chemical mixture additional known carcinogens are in our water. These can be found by looking for Total Tri-Halomethane (TTHMS) and Halo Acetic Acids (HAAs) in water quality reports.
Some subdivisions have local water companies treating a large well. These companies use excess Chlorine as they are not cost effective to switch to Chlorine/Ammonia. This means that most water entering your house is like pool water or devoid of disinfection. Testing is the only way to know.
Helotes Municipal Water needs a water softener, Catalytic Carbon and Reverse Osmosis for pure drinking/cooking water.
