Did you know that each home’s water is different depending on a number of factors?
- If you have a private well or public water supply

The first step to finding out exactly what’s in your water is to get a professional home water test.
North Brothers Plumbing offers basic water testing with fast, accurate results in most local areas. Contact us to schedule!

Step 2: On-Site Water Testing & Plumbing Inspection
On the scheduled day, our experienced water treatment specialists will arrive at your home for the water test and plumbing inspection.

“Vlad did an amazing job installing both water softening system and RO in our home. We had bought the machines in advance so he quoted the labor which was very reasonable compared to other quotes we’d received. He’s extremely reliable, responsive and knowledgeable. Him and his guys came, got the work done quickly and efficiently. They left the place clean and like it was before. We’re so glad we found Vlad! We highly recommend this company for all your water / plumbing needs!“ – Kaylee Yang, A 5-Star Google Review
GenX is a form of the “forever chemical” PFAS.
- Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a large family of man-made chemicals that contain carbon, fluorine, and other elements.
- These chemicals have been in use since the 1940s and are found in a variety of products including firefighting foams, household products such as non-stick cookware, food packaging, and stain and water repellants.
- The two most widely studied PFAS chemicals are perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS); these chemicals were voluntarily phased out of production in the United States. However, as many as 3,000 other PFAS chemicals still are used in a wide variety of applications.
- These chemicals are persistent and resist degradation, meaning they accumulate in the environment and in your body over time. Read more from the WQA, here: https://wqa.org/learn-about-water/water-q-a/pfas
A Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System from North Brothers Plumbing can help reduce this contaminant significantly – in many cases to a level that is safe to drink.
According to the New York Times: “The Environmental Protection Agency says streams tapped by water utilities serving a third of the population are not yet covered by clean-water laws that limit levels of toxic pollutants.”
Furthermore, lead is rarely treated by municipalities and is picked up in water during its journey to your home’s tap. Lead can easily be removed by a Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System from North Brothers Plumbing.
A new study by the Environmental Working Group reports that some areas across the country have drinking water containing hexavalent chromium, a toxic metal that has been linked to cancer. A reverse osmosis drinking water system can help bring contaminants like Chromium 6 to a safe level.
What it is – hard water contains calcium and magnesium minerals which bond with everything they touch leaving “limescale” in their wake.
Treatment – Our guaranteed water softener provides the best option for soft water on the market. It improves the water throughout your entire home while protecting your appliances and fixtures.
What it is – Iron can come in a couple different forms including dissolved and non-dissolved. Both of which can leave red/orange stains on your sinks, tubs, and toilets and can be extremely hard to remove. Iron can also cause bacteria to grow and let off an unpleasant smell.
Treatment – The EcoWater ECR 3502 is rated to remove up to 15 ppm of clear water iron. In most cases, our equipment can remove triple the iron compared to competitive brands. Should your water run red out of the faucet, an ETF AII9 Air Injection filter ahead of your water softener will usually fix the problem. In severe cases, a separate iron filter may be needed.
What it is – Chlorine is a chemical used by municipal & local water treatment plants to reduce harmful bacteria in the water supply. While this sounds good, chlorine and chloramines can cause a bacteria of their own to grow called trihalomethanes (TTHM) which is quite unsafe to drink or bathe in.
Treatment – The most efficient Chlorine reduction filter is Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) or Catalytic Carbon. Due to the high level of chlorine added to water by cities, you will really appreciate your water with chlorine reduction. See our Whole House Filtration page for more information.
Dirt & Sediment
What it is – dirt & sediment is just as it sounds. This is typically most common in well water or surface water that hasn’t gone through a treatment facility.
Treatment – Dirt and sediment are found in almost all water supplies and will decrease the efficiency and lifespan of your appliances. For example, sediment in a water heater can prevent the heat from transferring to the water in the tank once sediment has built up in the bottom. Our whole house filtration system can help with this problem.
