Delafield Water Softener

Delafield first developed in the 1840s as a settlement of the southwest edge of Lake Nagawicka. Today the residential area is home to about 7,500 residents and draws even more people as a popular resort area. Water supply is sourced to the residents through groundwater and public water utilities for the city. It’s important to remove excess contaminants or minerals from water to make it suitable for consumption as well as other household needs like cleaning, washing, and bathing. Guthrie & Frey provides Delafield water softeners to ensure homes have clean and safe water.

This is why so many residents turn to water softeners to filter out contaminants and get a continuous supply of clean water to rely on. The two main contaminants found in Delafield’s water include arsenic and radium. There are also a few other detected contaminants that can put homeowners’ safety at risk. What exactly do these contaminants mean? Take a look at the chart below to learn more about risks associated with each one.

What are the most common water contaminants in Delafield?


Aluminum, Arsenic, Barium, and cadmium are all common contaminants that occur naturally in water. However, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) set standards for more than 80 different contaminants that may occur in water.


Are water softeners for Delafield worth the money?


Water softeners are necessary to remove contaminants from water and ensure you aren’t putting yourself or your family at risk for health problems. Soft water is also known to help the longevity and performance of other household appliances by preventing scale build-up in pipes or faucets.


What happens when water softeners go bad?


Water softeners are no different then other appliances around your home. While water softeners can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years, eventually components can break, or electrical problems may occur which will cause it to stop working. By keeping your water softener properly maintained, you can avoid these issues.
