Following is a guideline for the most common contaminants that we deal with, and the systems used. Web sites serve to provide detailed information about the systems and how they work.
Iron, hardness, sulfur, taste and odor, acid water - we custom design your system depending upon the combination of these contaminants. The general system consists of a backwash filter with a multiple media.
Bacteria (coliform and e.coli and iron/sulfur bacteria) - we use ultraviolet sterilizers and chlorinating systems.
Arsenic - a semi-metal element in the periodic table. It is colorless, odorless and tasteless. It enters drinking water supplies from natural deposits in the earth or from agricultural and industrial practices.
- Adedge Technologies - this company has developed a proprietary ferric oxide, which works on the principal of absorption.
- npXtra by SolmeteX - this company uses a resin in an one-time recyclable exchangeable cylinder.
- Resintech - a manufacturer of resins. We use one of their strong base anion or hybrid resins for reducing arsenic.
Nitrates - we use an anion resin which is salt regenerated, similar to a water softener. This is for whole house use. The other method is reverse osmosis, usually for point of use (drinking water).
Salt water - the only method to remove salt (sodium chloride) from water is reverse osmosis.
Sand - the types of filters used for sand are bag filter, screen or mesh, or a separator.
Sediment - we use a basic backwash filter or a bag filter or a pleated cartridge filter.If you live in Lane County, a filtration system from McKenzie Valley Pump can give you peace of mind that your water is free from a number of contaminants.

These are commonly used for low producing wells, allowing for a greater flow rate than the well produces. Tanks can be above or below ground. Common material for above ground tanks are polyethylene (Norwesco). Common material for below ground tanks are concrete (Willamette Graystone). All tanks have a capacity of 500 to 3000 gallons or more.
Water testing is always recommended when buying real estate or determining the need for and type of treatment system. Testing for coliform should be done on a periodic basis.
Certified 4 Hour Pump Flow Test - this test is generally required by the buyer, in a real estate transaction. This tests the capacity of the well, limited to the pump in the well. The well is pumped for a 4 hour period, checking the flow rate, and sometimes the draw down, every 15 minutes.
Quality or Purity Testing - there is a variety of water testing packages you can chose from. The basic three tests required for real estate transaction in Oregon are bacteria (e. coli, and coliform bacteria), nitrate and arsenic.
