Water quality is a common concern in the Baltimore area. This client was experiencing pinhole leaks in their copper water lines. We conducted a free water analysis and found the pH in their water to be a 4.5 which was causing the damage to her water lines. Water should have pH level of 7.5-8.5. Anything lower than a 7.5 is considered acidic. This aggressive water will pull out copper, brass, or any other types of metal it comes into contact in an effort to balance itself to the 7.5-8.5 range it needs. While 4.5 seems fairly close to 7.5, when you consider that it is parts per million, you realize how important water treatment was to this client. A chemical feeder was the best solution to their water issues. This unit has no fluctuations in pH levels and does not add hardness to the system. Once we installed the chemical feeder, our technician conducted another water analysis. With their new system, the pH level tested at an 8. This will prevent further damage to our client's plumbing system and help to prevent additional water damage to her home. Our outstanding workmanship has created a happy repeat client. If you are on a well, give us a call to schedule your free water test. We are more than happy to test your existing system too!
