What causes blue-green stains on my fixtures?Answer-Solution
Acidic water will cause corrosion of metallic plumbing fixtures and piping. A common symptom of acidic water is blue/green staining of fixtures & laundry with copper plumbing systems.
What is hard water?Answer-Solution
When water is referred to as 'hard' this simply means, that it contains more minerals than ordinary water.  These are especially the minerals calcium and magnesium. The degree of hardness of the water increases, when more calcium and magnesium dissolves. 
How can I tell if my water is hard?
You may have hard water if your soaps and laundry detergent don't lather very well, or if glasses and dishes are left with spots, or colored clothing looks dull. Tubs and bathroom fixtures may be covered with an unsightly film.  You can request to have your water tested by one of Davis Water Treatment's trained service technicians by using our online water analysis request form or call us at 330 666-4926.
What is water softening?
When water contains a significant amount of calcium and magnesium, it is called hard water. Hard water is known to clog pipes and to complicate soap and detergent dissolving in water.  Water softening is a technique that serves the removal of the ions that cause the water to be hard, in most cases calcium and magnesium ions. Iron ions may also be removed during softening.  The best way to soften water is to use a water softener unit and connect it directly to the water supply.
What is a Reverse Osmosis (RO) Unit?
Reverse osmosis (RO) is a filtration process where water molecules are forced through a semi-permeable membrane under intense pressure. The semi-permeable membrane only allows water molecules to pass through, treating the water by reducing specified contaminants3 such as arsenic V, barium, chromium and radium 226/228 and microorganisms, such as cryptosporidium and giardia.  Let Davis Water Treatment install a Point of Use RO Drinking Water System for you!
