What’s in the water in Oconomowoc?
|Contaminant||About the Contaminant||Signs of the Contaminant|
|Hard Water||Although not harmful to your health in small amounts, it can have severely negative effects on appliances causing them to have a short lifespan.||White chalky buildup on fixtures and appliances. Water leaves spots on glasses and dishes.|
|Iron||Although small amounts do not have a negative effect on your health, Iron is a contaminant that contains bacteria that feed off it. However, large amounts of iron can be hazardous to your health. Iron does not blend well with soap, leaving residue on your bathtub, appliances, and skin (causing clogged pores).||Metallic taste which carries into your food and beverages|
Leaves orange/red stains on anything water touches
Iron residue build up can cause pipes to clog, thus decreasing water pressure in your home.
|Lead||Lead typically found in old plumbing that used lead pipes. Over time, these pipes break down and cause lead to be present in drinking water. There are short-term and long-term solutions to help remove lead from your water.||There is no way to see, smell, or taste lead. A home water test is required.|

The service was outstanding! Within less than a week they had someone look at our old water softener and then replaced it. Both employees who came were courteous. The price on the new softener was very reasonable and they offered different payment options. I would highly recommend Guthrie and Frey!
