Universal Water Systems offers free basic water testing with fast, accurate results in most local areas. Enter your zip code to see if you qualify for free water testing!

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.

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.

About 15 minutes into the presentation by William, who was... very easy going and extremely knowledgeable, the system had sold itself. My only regret was not having a system like this for the past 21 years while raising my family in Nob Hill. It was disturbing to see how bad the water quality was. While not inexpensive the system clearly has already improved our quality of life and that is a true investment into our future. From the presentation to the install by Pete it was a very easy process. Pete answered all of our questions and when we had a question after install immediately responded. This is definitely a very professional company with a system that I highly recommend.read more

Fantastic service! From the testing of the water in my... home and explanation of results, to the installation of the water conditioner/refiner and reverse osmosis systems including detailed explanation and instructions on use of the equipment, I couldn't be happier. The folks at Universal Water Systems are polite and professional. As for results of water treated by the Ecowater system, well, I noticed immediate improvements. Showers feel better, water tastes better, coffee and tea taste better, cleaning is easier... basically, everything that water touches is better with this system.read more

He followed all COVID-19 protocols, replaced our R/O line filter, updated our old system to work with theirs, and replaced our broken faucet. He answered all my questions, explained the system to me, and informed me of when to replace the filters. He was very prompt and professional. Such great friendly service! I highly recommend Universal Water Systems. Thank you Darin!read more

Dominique was my technician today for a service call on my... eco water System. He called ahead of time to let me know he was on the way, then arrived promptly, wearing his mask, and checked with me to verify the items on his work order. Dominique was extremely knowledgeable and professional. He got straight to work, explaining to me what he was doing and why. He took care of my softener in the garage, and my RO System in the Kitchen. Dominique was awesome. I would highly recommend him and, if the other technicians are anything like him, I would strongly recommend UWS. 2020-07-20read more

Service call today was done by Dominique. He provided... excellent service and knowledge with explanation of all details regarding the water filtration system and costs. Richard was friendly and accommodating with my scheduling and answering initial questions to problem solve possible things needed for the system to get it running again. The replacement filters are a little pricey but the system was already in the house when I moved in. I love having filtered water and having this great customer service helps make it worth it as well. Thank you!read more

I had a super positive experience with Universal Water.... They went the extra mile to insure our installation was successful after encountering difficult obstacles. Our home was not built with a drain in the garage so we had to opt for a dry well. However due to resistance and objections from our neighbor, Kyle came on site and man did he take charge! They ran special plumbing to our laundry room and we were able to abandon our dry well and use proper drainage. Universal Water is a principled company that really cares about customer satisfaction right up to the president Justin. I am so very impressed with their commitment to insuring a quality solution to our specialized situation. Many companies might have walked away and UWC was under no obligation - they just did the right thing. They also supported us when our HOA was asking questions.I've had nothing but positive encounters with everyone at the company from their marketing pro Andy, all the technicians and Richard - the customer service mgr. They call when they say they will call and show up when they promise to.If you want your system working well call Kyle- he is "The water softener whisperer". Actually he 's more like Wolfie - The Cleaner from Pulp Fiction. GREAT GREAT COMPANY AND PEOPLE !!read more

Soft water is fantastic. We have used it for most of the... past 30 years although only recently found EcoWater. Their water softener is good (just as good as our prior 11 year old). The magical claims are a bit overdone, though 🙂 There are still mineral buildup in sinks and showers but we expected that. We love the fact it uses potassium and not salt. Its more expensive but better for us and the environment.The RO system that came as part of the package was only so-so. We discovered a slow leak in the tubing installation about 5 weeks afterwards. Fighting mold ever since. 🙁 So if you have an RO system installed, don't assume it is done correctly but check daily for water.Universal Water Systems saw this review and contacted us. They fixed the damaged cabinet to our satisfaction and gave us additional compensation.I would not hesitate to use this company again. Especially over "ordinary" water softeners.read more

Mine is a funny story. I really had no intention of getting... a water filtration system put in, but the salesperson who came out to do the demonstration had me convinced when he showed me how my body absorbed the chlorine in the water. Still I was doubting myself, and now when I joke about it, I will say that I got conned into putting the water filtration system in. But I can only say that I am sooooo glad I did. What a difference in all areas of my household! ;O) I no longer have to go to Whole Foods 2-3 times a week to buy my drinking water. (I had my water filtration system put in the day before the Stay At Home orders came out so the timing could not have been better!)My shower stays clean even if I am lazy and do not squeegee it. I no longer have to add a cup of Vinegar to every load in my dishwasher.My clothes are nicer. And I could go on. Then one day my bypass valve gave me a shower when I tried to push it in. - The O-ring had come lose. So I called the company, and the phone was answered by a real live person, who scheduled a technician to come out the same day to check it out! He came out, put the O-ring back in its place and checked for water pressure. It was quite a bit too high. So another appointment was made for the company to come out and put in a pressure control valve. This could have been really expensive, but the company treated me very very nicely. The day came for the repair and Thomas came out and put in the pressure control. Later Dominique came out to fine tune the pressure setting, and I was good to go - with a much safer water system. Both Thomas and Dominique were exquisite representatives for Universal Water Systems. Thank you!read more
