Did you know about 25% of people in Connecticut rely on residential wells for their daily water?

Well Water Treatment Matters
Homeowners possess many option for proper well water treatment. However, according to the CDC no single treatment protects against all potential problems. As a result, various treatments are required for different reasons, such as:
- Removing specific contaminants.
- Taking extra precautions because a family member suffers from a weak immune system.
- Improving the taste of drinking water.
Additionally, standard well water treatment systems come in two main categories.
Point of Use Well Water Treatment Systems
Point of use (POU) systems treat drinking water at the location where it is used the most. For example, SolvIt Water’s point-of-use systems use state-of-the-art reverse osmosis technology, which delivers a continuous supply of bottled-water quality water. Additionally, RO drinking water systems provide high-quality water for worry-free drinking or cooking right in your kitchen.
Point of Entry Well Water Treatment Systems
Point of Entry systems treat water throughout an entire residence. Generally, homeowners install these systems after the water meter. Point of entry systems treat water as it enters the home at every faucet.
As the CDC notes contact a qualified well water specialist to determine the best treatment option.
Well Water Treatment in Connecticut
In Connecticut, the Department of Public Health (DPH) offers guidance on selecting the most qualified water treatment specialist. In fact, the DPH does not maintain a list of well water treatment specialists or approved products. As a result, state officials recommend proper due diligence.
“When shopping for water treatment equipment, be a good consumer and do your research. The State of Connecticut does not license home water treatment devices and sometimes treatment installers may not have the appropriate license for the work they are performing. The Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection (CT DCP) licenses plumbers, the following CT DCP plumbing license types include work related to water conditioning (treatment): P1 & P2 – all plumbing and piping work J1 & J2 – limited to domestic water pumps and water conditioning.”
Finally, the state recommends searching via online sources or word mouth. Also, Connecticut residents should feel confident contacting the local health department for recommendations or the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection Occupational & Professional Licensing Division at (860) 713-6135 for more information on professional licenses.
