Water softener suggestions needed
We are in NC and will be moving into our new construction house next week. Our well is 525 ft deep and the flow rate is approximately 2 gallons per minute. Ten days ago we received the microbiology test report stating both total coliform and E. coli are absent. Today we received the Inorganic chemistry report and, of course, we have hard water. I would appreciate suggestions on how we should treat the water. There are only two of us in the house, there are three bathrooms and we have no jacuzzi or hot tub.
Since we haven't moved in yet, we haven't been drinking the water, so we don't know how it tastes. And, even though the water is hard, my husband says it suds up just fine.
Here are the test results:
Arsenic Barium Cadmium Calcium 66 mg/L
Chloride 6.50 mg/L
Chromium Copper Fluoride Iron 0.19 mg/L
Lead Magnesium 8 mg/L
Manganese Mercury Nitrate Nitrite PH 7.9
Selenium Silver Sodium 13.00 mg/L
Sulfate Total Alkalinity 196 mg/L
Total Hardness 200 mg/L
Zinc Thanks for your assistance.
