ARE YOU ON CITY WATER OR WELL WATER?
Most of us are on municipally treated city water systems, which is the most common type of water found in America. This highly regulated water is city tap water from your utility. If you are on well water, will need a complete and independent water test to determine what your real needs might be.
DOES YOUR CITY USE CHLORINE OR CHLORAMINE?
About 22% of people have tap water treated with chloramine (a corrosive combination of chlorine and ammonia). Chloramine requires more contact time than chlorine, as well as a specialized and unique carbon filtration media to effectively remove it from your bathing and drinking water.
DO YOU HAVE HARD WATER?
Some of us have harder water than others, and EWS generally considers 6 grains (102 ppm or mg/l) of hardness to be on the lower end of hard water.
If you notice excessive spotting or mineral build--up and water heaters that fail prematurely, select HARD WATER. If you do not perceive that you have any water hardness issues, select SOFT WATER.
CHOOSE THE SITUATION THAT BEST DESCRIBES YOUR HOME.
It is very important not to undersize a chloramine removal appliance, since chloramine requires sufficient contact time with the proper amount of filtration media to be absolutely effective. Please look at the two options below and choose the situation that best describes your home.
Do not worry if you do not know whether you have less than or more than 2 ppm (parts per million) chloramine. Simply choose the answer that best describes your situation based on number of bathrooms, number of people, and number of water heaters.
To find out the ppm of chloramine in your water, look at your water quality report or you call EWS customer service for assistance.
