Highly Effective Well Water Filtration Systems for Bacteria, Chemicals, Heavy Metals, Sediment, Taste & Odor, and more

Untreated well water can be nasty and unsafe to drink and use. As a well owner, it’s important to test your well and carry out routine checks to ensure water quality and safety. If your water comes from a private well, a well water filtration system is highly recommended to remove contaminants and improve taste and odor.

Top Causes of Disease or Contaminant Outbreaks in Wells 

  1. Hepatitis A
  2. Giardia
  3. Campylobacter, E. coli (tie)
  4. Shigella
  5. Cryptosporidium, Salmonella (tie)
  6. Arsenic, Gasoline, Nitrate, Phenol, Selenium (tie)

Even if your well water itself is safe there’s still a risk that contaminants can make their way into your well or pump system. Also, just because untreated well water was considered safe at one point, it does not guarantee it will continue to be so. A water filtration system will remove harmful contaminants and provide peace of mind that the water your household is drinking and using is safe.

Private wells can be contaminated by natural sources and human activities such as:

  • Microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, parasites)
  • Heavy metals (lead, arsenic, chromium)
  • Organic chemicals (pesticides, pharmaceuticals, petroleum products)
  • Radionuclides (uranium, radium)
  • Nitrates and nitrite

Best Well Water Filtration Systems

The water filtration systems listed below are the latest and greatest in well water treatment. They are a mix of whole house water filter systems (they’ll filter all the water in your house) and drinking water filters (they’ll filter the drinking water for a single faucet).

Most are ultrafiltration systems with 0.02 micron filtration to remove bacteria, hepatitis A, giardia, campylobacter, E. coli, shigella, cryptosporidium, salmonella, protozoa, cysts, viruses, algae, dirt, mold, silt, colloidal silica, clay, iron, sand, lead particulate, and more.

Additional included filters in these systems target heavy metals, organic materials, volatile organic compounds, radionuclides, arsenic, nitrate, phenol, selenium, heavy sediment, and more. (Capabilities depend on the system – give us a shout if you need help deciding).

What is ultrafiltration?

Ultrafiltration (UF) is a type of membrane filtration which removes particulates and solids on a microscopic level.

Benefits of ultrafiltration:

  • Operates smoothly at low water pressure
  • Environmentally friendly technology – UF produces no wastewater during the ultrafiltration process and doesn’t need electricity
  • Very high effectiveness at removing bacteria, protozoa, and other pathogens
  • An ultrafiltration membrane lasts much longer than a conventional water filter (years versus months)
