Common water contaminants in Grand Strand

Hardness Minerals
What it is – hard water contains calcium and magnesium minerals which bond with everything they touch leaving “limescale” in their wake.Treatment – Our guaranteed water softener provides the best option for soft water on the market. It improves the water throughout your entire home while protecting your appliances and fixtures.
Iron
What it is – Iron can come in a couple different forms including dissolved and non-dissolved. Both of which can leave red/orange stains on your sinks, tubs, and toilets and can be extremely hard to remove. Iron can also cause bacteria to grow and let off an unpleasant smell.Treatment – The EcoWater ECR 3502 is rated to remove up to 15 ppm of clear water iron. In most cases, our equipment can remove triple the iron compared to competitive brands. Should your water run red out of the faucet, an ETF AII9 Air Injection filter ahead of your water softener will usually fix the problem. In severe cases, a separate iron filter may be needed.
Chlorine
What it is – Chlorine is a chemical used by municipal & local water treatment plants to reduce harmful bacteria in the water supply. While this sounds good, chlorine and chloramines can cause a bacteria of their own to grow called trihalomethanes (TTHM) which is quite unsafe to drink or bathe in.Treatment – The most efficient Chlorine reduction filter is Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) or Catalytic Carbon. Due to the high level of chlorine added to water by cities, you will really appreciate your water with chlorine reduction. See our Whole House Filtration page for more information.
Chromium 6

A new study by the Environmental Working Group reports that Grand Strand drinking water contains hexavalent chromium, a toxic metal that has been linked to cancer. While the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency does not require the testing for the metal, the survey found that levels in our area’s water were pushing the amounts proposed as a safety limit by authorities. This contaminant has been proven to cause cancer. You can search your zip code to see the amount in your municipal water supply here: https://www.ewg.org/interactive-maps/2016-chromium6-lower-48.php#.WXYljtPyu-l 

Dirt & Sediment
What it is – dirt & sediment is just as it sounds. This is typically most common in well water or surface water that hasn’t gone through a treatment facility.Treatment – Dirt and sediment are found in almost all water supplies and will decrease the efficiency and lifespan of your appliances. For example, sediment in a water heater can prevent the heat from transferring to the water in the tank once sediment has built up in the bottom. Our whole house filtration system can help with this problem.
Other Contaminants
What they are – common contaminants in our area can include nitrates, lead, arsenic, pharmaceuticals, and more. These are not included in the free water test, however, we do offer full laboratory testing at an affordable price.Treatment – Protecting the water in your home is important, however ensuring the purity of the water you are putting in your body is even more crucial. Our Reverse Osmosis drinking water system will give you a peace of mind that your drinking water is healthy, and you are going to fall in love with this drinking water system that can provide up to 50 gallons per day of delicious water.

We had a reverse osmosis system installed today and the whole process was pleasant, from hearing about all options of service, i.e. ownership vs rental, pricing, installation and service. The technicians were very good, told us all about using the system (we opted for rental) and we look forward to good water to drink and cook with.

We've used Southatlantic for years installing and maintaining our water filtration system. They are prompt and helpful. The only reason for the 4 stars is that on their most recent filter change they forgot to turn the valve back on which promoted another call and visit. I'm sure this was a one-time issue and I have no reservations recommending them.

Had a water filtration system and softener installed a year ago. The purchase, installation and maintenance service have all been fantastic. Very good customer service and patient with new customer questions. We love our system and it has worked well with no issues over the year we've had it.

Very happy with the installation of our water system. And with reverse osmosis for drinking, we will save money on bottles water for drinking and cooking. No longer have to be concerned with local water quality issues.

I am thoroughly pleased with This company and their product. After 13 years of usage, I had to have the resin replaced. Their employee Michael came and did the work in a couple of hours. He did a great job, replaced the resin and cleaned the unit. He was very professional, knowledgeable,and courteous. He did a great job. I have and will continue to recommend this to everyone I know. I am very happy with their service.

I have used Southlantic to service my water system for 15 years. I have found them to give timely service reminders and polite service. My system needed a seal and the tech had the part on his truck.

Southatlantic (ECO) water systems is an outstanding company. We have had our home system for 2 years now with 0 problems. System works perfectly. Some people told us they put in cheaper systems and had lots of trouble costing in the end more than this one. Go for the better one and you can't beat this company. Ask for technician MIKE. He is the best of the best.
