Water Quality Hiccups

Problem: Recent Chlorine Smell in Water Due to Changes to Water Treatment Process

Solution: Water Treatment Equipment

If you haven’t seen or read the recent news from Pennsylvania American Water, be aware that temporarily – from April 12th thru June 21st – they are “temporarily” changing their water treatment process (as a part of their normal distribution system maintenance) by switching treatment to a stronger disinfectant form of CHLORINE known as “free chlorine” which does not contain ammonia. Free chlorine is used in conjunction with flushing water mains and fire hydrants.


What does this mean for YOU?

  • You (and your pets) may experience a more noticeable chlorine taste and/or odor from:
  • tap water: drinking, cooking.
  • cleaning: washing machine, clothes, dishwasher.
  • If you have a health care need (see examples below) that requires “purified or filtered water” they recommend reaching out to your healthcare provider with questions. ADDITIONALLY, contact us for water treatment recommendations that can act as a barrier between the outside pipes and your home’s water faucets.


  • If you are taking prescription medications.
  • Skin care concerns.
  • Contact lens users.



What about future water quality NOTICES?

Whether it is a “BOIL ALERT” or changes to the municipal company’s treatment procedures, adding water treatment to your home will provide PEACE OF MIND that your water is always filtering out the bad and only providing quality water. We can also provide several options for chlorine removal to homeowners who want to eliminate the odor and taste now and after the “temporary” change to PA American Water’s treatment process.

      "Never disappoints! I've had two water tests conducted on my home. During the most recent John shared his knowledge and expertise on not only the Well tank pump that was in serious need of replacement but also options for my water softener. I never felt pressured to commit to something I didn't need. They made sure I had all the information and let me make a decision based on what made sense for me. Great experience from first call to final product!"
