Our Lehigh Valley, PA Area Water Treatment Products and Services

Water Softener Systems

Water softener systems help to soften the water at your Lehigh Valley area home or business by removing the naturally occurring hardness (calcium, magnesium and other minerals) for both private well and public water systems.

Hard water is very common in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding Eastern Pennsylvania areas. If any of the following apply to you, you are likely dealing with hard water:

Iron Filters

Iron filter systems are used when groundwater comes from geological formations that contain natural iron and/or manganese. An iron filter system installed at your Lehigh Valley area home or business can remove these particulates and help rid toilets and sinks of orange staining.

Rust stains are caused when there is too much iron in your water. The iron in water, when combined with moisture and oxygen, cause these stains to appear. These rust stains can be hard to remove and can even get on your clothing from the water in your washing machine. While a high iron level in your water may not make it dangerous to drink, it can have an unpleasant metallic taste.

Installing a water filtration system at your Lehigh Valley, PA area home or business to remove the iron from your water can help keep your water clear and your clothes clean.

Acid Neutralizers

Acid neutralizer systems employ a sacrificial material (typically calcite) to neutralize acidic water and prevent it from attacking your household piping and appliances. Units must typically be refilled with media once a year.

Reverse Osmosis (RO)

Reverse Osmosis or RO systems are used on well water to remove harmful contaminants such as PFA's (a synthetic chemical that dissolves in water), lead and asbestos from your drinking water. This system easily fits under the sink in a compact setting. Filter changes are recommended every 6 to 12 months to ensure optimal performance.

Ultraviolet (UV) Water Treatment Systems

Ultraviolet systems kill bacteria in water through the use of UV bulbs. UV systems are added to any well that is suspected of or proven to contain microbiological contaminants. These contaminants are most common in wells with older construction techniques, such as hand dug wells and springs, and can be eradicated from your water with the use of a UV system.

A ultraviolet water treatment system for your Lehigh Valley, PA area home or business is cost effective, environmentally friendly (as it is a chemical-free process), and only requires simple system maintenance on a yearly basis.

Water Testing

Odenheimer Co. performs many water tests in-house and works with state-certified laboratories to obtain the most accurate results possible so that we can properly address the water system needs of your Lehigh Valley, PA area home or business.

Frequently Asked Questions About Water Treatment

Why does my water smell like rotten eggs (sulfur)?

Sulfur compounds and contaminants in your water can cause a strong, undesirable rotten egg smell. This smell can be embarrassing and unpleasant when family and friends visit your home, but it bears no reflection on your cleanliness or housekeeping. Installing a water filtration system at your Lehigh Valley, PA area home or business can remove these contaminants from your water and help eliminate the smell.

I just had my water tested and it failed due to bacteria and fecal contamination. What should I do?

Having a failed water sample test can be very stressful to Lehigh Valley, PA area home and business owners. Contamination can occur for a number of reasons and is not always cause for alarm.

Water contaminants fall into two categories: naturally occurring and human activity based. Some examples of contaminants to well water include animal waste, failing septic systems, an improperly sealed well cap, stormwater and agricultural runoff, fertilizers, and decaying plant matter.

If you have encountered a failed water test at your Lehigh Valley, PA area home or business, we would be happy to evaluate your well and water system and come up with a water treatment plan that works best for your specific situation.
