Sand, iron flakes, and even occasional insects can transform a refreshing glass of water into an unpleasant gritty experience.
The presence of sediment in your plumbing not only contaminates your drinking water but also leads to clogged faucet aerators, reduced water flow, and a shorter lifespan for your household appliances and water heater.
When your faucets in Maryland start dispensing tiny particles of sand, soil, and rocks along with water, it’s time to consider a filtration solution. Our team of experts at Mid-Atlantic Water Services is ready to assist.
Apart from our expertise in maintaining, repairing, and installing sediment filtration systems, we provide support for various water-related needs, including drinking water treatment, landscaping irrigation, and leak detection devices.
With over three decades of experience in the water treatment industry, we are your dependable professionals for reverse osmosis, filtration, ultraviolet (UV) light systems, and water softeners in Annapolis and the surrounding areas.
Installation of a Sediment Filtration System
Although sediment is often noticeable in tap water, testing can also reveal the presence of other contaminants in your water. Our qualified professionals will test your water and send samples to a third-party laboratory. The results will guide us in determining the most suitable water treatment system for your home.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends annual testing of well water for total coliform bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids, and pH levels. The CDC also advises testing if there is a change in the taste, color, or odor of your water.
At Mid-Atlantic Water Services, we take a comprehensive approach to eliminate sediment from your Annapolis, MD water supply. We install the appropriate sediment filters at the point of entry into your home, preventing particles from entering your water heater and faucets.
Our water treatment experts are well-versed in determining the appropriate filter size for trapping sediment from your well or pipes. Filter ratings correspond to the particle size they can filter out. For instance, we offer Viqua cartridge-style filters with a 5-micron rating, which effectively screens out particles as small as 5 microns.
Typically, a cartridge-style filter lasts for a few months. The Viqua cartridge filters we provide can last between six to twelve months before needing replacement.
Our advanced technology filter option is the Hellenbrand self-cleaning filter system, designed for high flow rates. It effectively removes suspended solids using a blend of filter media.
Repairing a Sediment Filtration System
If you encounter any issues with your sediment filtration system or find that it is not performing as expected, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at Mid-Atlantic Water Services for a thorough evaluation.
You might benefit from the installation of a secondary filter at your kitchen faucet or near other water treatment systems, such as a water softener or reverse osmosis device.
Maintenance of a Sediment Filtration System
Proper maintenance is essential to ensure your filter operates efficiently. A clogged filter can lead to reduced water pressure and a diminished capacity to remove sediment.
We recommend checking your sediment filter for an accumulation of rocks, silt, and other particles every few weeks. The lifespan of the filter depends on factors such as your water usage and the amount of sediment present in your system.
If you prefer, Mid-Atlantic Water Services can take care of maintenance on your behalf.
