Water Treatment Solutions We Install

Since every home’s water supply is different, Larry & Sons can help you choose the best solution to your home’s unique water quality issues.

Our plumbers can develop a customized treatment plan that will leave your water clean, fresh, and safe. Systems we install include:

Whole-Home Water Filtration Systems

A whole-home water filtration system is the most effective way to purify your home’s water. Instead of installing individual point-of-use purifiers on sinks throughout your home, a whole-home system is installed where your main water line enters your home.

This means that you won’t just have cleaner and safer water for drinking but also for bathing, cooking, and cleaning.

A whole-home system simplifies your water purification process and ensures that all water in your home, regardless of what faucet it comes from, is high-quality and pure.

Water Softeners

A water softener removes calcium, magnesium, and other minerals from your water. To determine whether you need a water softener, our experts will test your water’s hardness.

As a result of installing a water softener, you’ll notice a decrease in limescale and hard water spots on your appliances, dishes, and pipes, as well as less soap and detergent residue in your sinks, showers, and washing machines. In addition, soft water will put less strain on your plumbing and may lengthen the life of some appliances.

Call Larry & Sons at (301) 733-5428 or contact us online for whole-home water filtration and water softener service.

Well Water Treatment

If your family relies on a well for water, you need to take extra care to ensure your water is safe and clean. Well water testing can let you know if you need water treatment and will tell you the exact contaminants that are affecting your water’s quality, smell, and taste.

Larry & Sons provides top-notch well water treatment services for homeowners in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. We’ll help you determine the right water treatment for your well and install the most effective solution.

Benefits of Well Water Treatment

Well water treatment is worth the investment. You’ll enjoy fresher, purer water for drinking, cooking, bathing, and other daily tasks, and you’ll have peace of mind that your water is safe. Treating your well water can even extend the lifespan of your plumbing fixtures by preventing mineral building

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should you test well water?

Well water should be tested at least once a year. Routine testing helps detect water quality issues you may not notice otherwise.
However, you should schedule a water test when you notice any changes in your water quality, such as taste, smell, or color.

What does water testing test for?

Water testing evaluates various parameters such as bacteria, nitrates, pH levels, lead, arsenic, pesticides, and other contaminants.
It provides an overall assessment of water quality and helps determine if it meets the required standards for safe consumption.

What are the differences between at-home water quality tests and professional water testing?

At-home water tests are quick, easy-to-use kits that provide basic information about water quality. However, they may not provide comprehensive results or detect all contaminants accurately.
Professional water testing conducted by trained plumbers uses specialized equipment and lab results to provide more accurate and detailed analyses.

Are there any health concerns with hard water?

While hard water is not directly harmful to health, it can cause issues such as dry skin, hair damage, and mineral buildup in pipes and appliances.
Using a water softener or other treatment methods can alleviate these concerns.

Why do I have brownish rust stains on my plumbing fixtures?

Brown stains on plumbing fixtures are often caused by high iron levels in the water. Iron can oxidize and form rust, which then stains surfaces.
Iron removal treatment can help address this issue.

What are the differences between whole-home and drinking water filtration?

Whole-home filtration systems treat water throughout the entire house, providing clean water for all uses. Drinking water filtration systems specifically target water used for consumption.
While both systems remove contaminants, whole-home filtration addresses a broader range of water quality concerns, while drinking water filtration focuses on providing high-quality drinking water.

Why does my water smell?

Water can have various odors, including:
A rotten egg smell, which indicates the presence of hydrogen sulfide. If it’s only hot water, replace your water heater’s anode rod. If it’s your entire water supply, install an iron filter.
A chlorine-like smell, which is likely due to chlorine disinfectant. A carbon filtration system will help.
A musty odor, which is caused by organic matter. Install a reverse osmosis system for more pleasant-smelling drinking water.
These smells can result from natural sources, bacteria growth, or chemical treatments in the water supply.

What are the most common water contaminants?

The most common water contaminants include bacteria (such as E. coli), lead, arsenic, nitrates, pesticides, chlorine, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and pharmaceuticals.
These contaminants can come from various sources, including industrial activities, agricultural runoff, and aging infrastructure.
Regular testing helps identify and address these issues to ensure safer water.
