Common water contaminants in Albuquerque & Surrounding Area

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 Albuquerque 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 the Albuquerque area water in some areas were pushing the levels proposed as a safety limit by authorities in California. 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.

I love our water softener but what I love the most is our RO filter. It makes the most tasty water, and I know it takes out harmful chemicals. I only wish that the filters were not so expensive.One more thing that’s important to know; it’s pricey to have them come out and do maintenance on the water softener, which is recommended. I had them come out and do it once, it felt like a huge waste of money because they were here for a total of 15 minutes and I’m not sure what/if they did anything maintenance like.

I never knew what a difference a water system could do until I was informed by some very knowledgeable people. And it is true too. The water system is awesome. I use less soap when showering and doing dishes. The dishes no longer have water marks when they're dry. Also my skin has been feeling much smoother and I drink more water from home with the reverse osmosis system.

This is the second time we have had them come and service our water system. The first time the technician was not too friendly and seemed like he did not want to be there.This time Darrin Kee was the technician to come. He was the best! Very friendly and customer oriented, helpful and answered any questions I had. Also thank you to Customer Service for working with me on my appointment time. All future services I will be requesting Darrin to be the tech. Thank you!

I had my Ecowater water refiner installed in my house about a month ago now into a slightly older house that I recently purchased. The water in my area of Albuquerque is fairly hard and appliances such as the fridge, dishwasher, and shower heads had significant scale buildup. The team at Universal Water Systems were professional and did a great job installing the system and so far it has been working great. I water my yard and plants with the treated water and they all look healthy and the water out of the reverse osmosis and even the normal faucets now tastes great and its night and day how much better the shower water feels. Overall I'm pretty happy with this home upgrade.
