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. 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.

We’ve had our system for almost twelve years and we... absolutely love it. The feeling of being silky smooth clean versus squeaky clean is second to none. I feel like I’ve already put lotion on when I get of the bath or shower. You really can’t beat that feeling. We were without system for three weeks and I don’t think I’ve ever wanted something back so bad in my life. The techs Darren and Dominic were really professional and courteous and provided great service.read more

A day or so after I contacted Universal, Andy showed up at... our home. Andy analyzed our hard water (12 grains hardness); demonstrated the Ecowater softner; and showed us what and how the system would be installed. I'm a born skeptic and Andy did a great job demonstrating and selling the Ecowater system. We bought the system including the reverse osmosis install under the kitchen sink.Andy scheduled the install seven days later. Pete Samora and his crew showed up and within the four hour time frame installed everything. Pete explained all the equipment and show me how to operate and verify the proper operation. Pete left his contact information and told me to call if there were any problems.We have been using softened water for seven days and are extremely happy with our choice. We bought this home in March 2019 and I knew from the start that we would have to do something with our hard water. The Ecowater softner system is great. I was worried about picking a good contractor and Universal Water is that company.We just received the shipment of soaps and cleaning products and look forward to begin using these in the near future.

Just got my Universal Water System on Monday 11/15/21. I... absolutely l love it! Reverse Osmosis makes my water taste amazing! The softener unit uses potassium chloride cubes and you only have to add more every 200+ days! I instantly felt the difference from the unit. Soap lathers much better and my skin is much softer now! Thank you, Teddy Mitchell, for my installation and instructions! Very helpful and knowledgeable. I recommend Universal Water Systems 100%.Rachel Myszaread more
