During this project, TPW and Black Dog Plumbing replaced non working equipment with a new water softener, Ph neutralizer and sediment filter. The low ph water was creating pinhole leaks in the copper plumbing pipes and caused leaks in the well water expansion tank which was also replaced. The homeowner was thrilled as we were able to solve all the water related problems in a timely fashion. All old equipment was recycled at E.L.Harvey in Westboro, MA
Here is a project just completed on December 24 for a homeowner just west of Boston. There were a number of problematic issues with this well water. High levels of hardness, manganese, iron, 2 different bacteria types as well as cloudy water conditions required a backwashable sediment filter. A 5 and 1 micron sediment filter was also needed to be 100% sure clear water enters the UV Sterilizer. The homeowner did not want to chlorine shock the well for health reasons. A ph neutralizer and a 2 cube softener were also needed to neutralize the low Ph and soften the 10 grain hardness raw water.
Here is a whole house water purification system with a clear housing on the sediment filter for visual monitoring. This is an older home south of Boston. The 12 grain hardness and high chlorine was becoming a real problem for the young expecting couple. They wanted to be sure their newborn would not be exposed to disinfectant chemicals. This install has utilized the solderless ProPressSystem. Our modern softener system controls, minimize salt usage as gallons used are measured and microprocessors control backwash cycles. This photo was taken as we packed up so its pretty clear we put in a full day at the jobsite.
This west of Boston project required cleaning up the municipal water for this health conscious family. The triple housing, wall mounted system, brings the whole house water up NSF Standard 42. This homeowner also choose to remove the added fluoride as well. For the F removal, we added a 2 cube bone char tank as tests have shown this natural product has proven very effective for this purpose. Its always wise to follow a char tank with another sediment filter as shown here to prevent any filter media from ever entering the home.
This system was installed for a family with young children who just moved into a home west of Boston. This municipal water is sourced from a combined group of wells and was very hard @ 12 grains. Sediment, chlorine and other disinfectant related chemicals are removed with the triple housing. A 2 cube softener was used to be sure of effective softening. The family was totally satisfied with the results.
A Comprehensive Health Scan of water sampled from this west of Boston home revealed, unknown to the homeowner, radon in water @ 124,500 pc/l. This amount is 12.5 x the safe level. All wells should be tested for radon in water. Along with new conditioning, softening equipment and a quality built radon removal machine, the radon in water was reduced by 99.4% as shown by post install testing. Activated carbon was used to virtually eliminate the remaining radon. High levels of radon in water can be extremely dangerous to ones health. This photo was taken before the electrician installed the code required 4 gang GFi protected & designated outlet. The family was greatful for TPW,s rapid response, testing turnaround, system engineering and pro installation.

Here is what a 5 Micron Sediment Filter can capture after one year. This is from municipal water west of Boston. This unusual substance was actually oily/greasy and difficult to clean off whatever it touched. None of this unknown substance got past the filter system. The cartridge was snow white when first installed. Probably not safe to drink this water without filtration and this is only what is actually visible.
