Do I need a treatment system for my water supply?
There are different treatment systems that are available for your water supply. For example, water softener is for hardness removal, charcoal filtration is for taste/odor control, and reverse osmosis is used to remove contaminants; arsenic, beryllium, fluoride, radium/uranium, sodium/chloride, pesticides, herbicides and some metals. To determine if you need a water treatment device, the Lake County Health Department recommends that you either contact a reputable water treatment company or a licensed water well driller who also sells and services water treatment equipment.
