PFAS Removal From Your Family’s Water With One Efficient System

Water all over the country has frequently been positive for lead, cysts, and PFOA/PFOS, and our area is not exempt. These chemicals have been found to exceed the levels set forth by health advisory organizations and may cause health problems.

 Eighteen million Americans live in communities where the water systems are in violation of the law. As a mater of fact, the federal agency in charge of making sure those systems are safe not only know these issues exist, they’ve done little to stop them, according to information provided by CNN, which cites multiple sources and water experts.

Our goal is not to scare anyone into getting water treatment, however, educating our local community about water quality is a top priority. We’ve worked with many local families to improve their water and to provide peace-of-mind, knowing the water they drink and bathe in is free of harmful contaminants.

Contact us today to learn more about our professionally installed and serviced drinking water system that reduces PFOS contamination. Fill out the contact form or call (941) 300-1114!

What are PFAS, PFOA, PFOS and What’s The Difference Between Them?

In a nutshell, PFAS stands for per- and polyflouralkyl substances, which are synthetic chemicals used to make everyday products we all use (your cell phone, your non-stick pans, some food packaging, most things that used to be made at 3M are made of PFAS). PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid, also referred to as C8) and PFOS (perfluorooctane sulfonate) are simply two types of PFAS, and the difference between the two is the amount of carbon atoms in the chain of polyflouralkyl. GenX is also considered a PFAS contaminant.

These chemicals have been around for almost 80 years, when they started being manufactured in the 1940’s. Unfortunately, a lot of chemical waste ends up being dumped in the water supply we drink from. Imagine 80 years of chemical waste contaminating the water we use every day.  

The Water Quality Association (WQA.org) tells us exposure to PFAS can happen when we eat food grown in soil contaminated by PFAS or drink water that has been contaminated and not properly filtered out. It can also be released through the household products we use to clean our homes.

Some potential health risks of PFAS exposure are cancer, a weakened immune system, fertility issues, low birth weight for infants, abnormal levels for cholesterol and thyroid hormones, and inflammation of the liver. Other health related issues are still under research.

How Can I Know I Have Safe Drinking Water?

We had just bought our home and the second week our well pump failed. We were also interested in treating the water. We called Certain Services and they came out the next day. Jeremy came out amd was very informative and helpful. Being new to Florida we had no idea how bad the water can be. After a thorough water test we discovered that our well high has a very high salt content (which explained the white build up on the faucets). Jeremy gave us our options for fixing the water and we decided to go with a whole house R.O. system. 2 days later, Joe, Nick, and Cody arrived to install the system. All three guys were great! Very friendly, knowledgeable, clean and efficient! We LOVE our water! wonderful experience from start to finish!

Needed a new water system to replace the old one. Didn't know exactly what I needed and so many I got a quote from said I needed a whole house RO system around $7500-10,000.Called Certain. Salesman came out, took water sample and analyzed it and I got a system that has no aerator tank to get moldy. Mys system is the newest technology installed by friendly, knowledgeable tech. My system went offline and I didn't know it until they called and sent a tech out the next day to get it back online...no charge.Quality equipment and quality company!They have earned my trust and business!

Our water suddenly went out late in the evening. We left a message with the phone service and Cody called us back within minutes. After having my husband try a few things, he came out quickly. Cody changed out the faulty switch and we had our water back in no time! He was professional, courteous, and prompt. The after hours call fee was the most reasonable fee I have encountered in years. You can bet we put their number in our phones as we won't even consider anyone else should the need arise for more service.

The employees at Certain Water Services always come right out when we have a problem and fix it as quickly as possible. A couple of times they were able to just walk us through what to do over the phone, saving us the cost of a visit. They recently installed a new water softener for us and they came on time, got it installed correctly, and took away our old equipment. This is the company we use for all of our water needs.

We are extremely happy with the service provided by Nick to get our system back up and running. He was knowledgeable, thorough, and explained what different parts of the system were and how they ran. This was especially useful as we do not have much experience with using a well as our primary water supply. He fixed the problem we had in a timely and cost-effective way, and was very professional and helpful. We will definitely be utilizing Certain Services for our future water needs!

Cody, one of the service technicians, is a true asset to your company. He is personable and very knowledgeable. He takes the time to answer questions and does a thorough job changing my reverse osmosis filters and checking my water softener each year. He treats my home as if it was his own.I also had bought a new shower head and hadn't installed it yet, so I asked him if he would be able to do it for me. He was willing to fit it into his schedule despite being at the last minute.I'm very pleased with the service I receive from you.

I can't thank you enough for the quick and expert service we received from your staff on Friday.My husband called me at work around 4:30pm on Friday and told me we had no water from any of our faucets. We had been having water pressure issues and our dishwasher wasn't working, but I was shocked to hear him say "NO water". And it was close to 5pm on a Friday. I was in a panic. We have a "home warranty", so I called them first, but, I was told that wells weren't covered. I did a quick Facebook and internet search for recommended well contractors, but nothing looked right to me until I saw your website. It seemed to cover everything and didn't require me to make a diagnosis before calling.It was 4:45pm when I called and I was hoping you were still open. Amy was an angel on the phone and I soon stopped panicking. I packed up at work and headed for home. I was so surprised to see your truck already parked in front of my house when I got home! An hour later and a few good tips from Cody and our water was restored. We didn't have to cancel our weekend plans or board our dog and check into a hotel. And I didn't feel "ripped off". I felt taken care of and valued.Thank you and thank you to your staff for being so professional and caring.

We are very pleased with our service. The technician was polite, professional and well qualified. He was knowledgeable and completed the task in a timely fashion. We had an estimate from a different company that was much higher than you for less services provided. We are so happy to have been referred to your company. We will continue to recommend you to others.

I am so glad I called certain services inc. I have had 2 other companies come out to see why my aerator keeps over flowing. They kept changing the float switch which did not fix the problem. I’d wake up every other morning to a small lake in my yard. After calling certain services inc they come out one time and it’s been over a week and the problem has been repaired and only 1/3 of the cost of the other companies which did not find out the real reason it was overflowing. The tech ( CODY ) took the time to explain what the problem was as he was repairing it. HIGHLY RECOMMEND CERTAIN SERVICES INC.

We were completely happy with the sales and service experience with this company, and after having our new system in service for three weeks now, we are delighted with the benefits of soft, clean water. Everyone we dealt with was courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. We never felt pressured to buy more system than we needed, and I felt the cost of equipment and installation was fair and reasonable in comparison to other options I researched. At this point, we are very satisfied customers.

Bill came out and tested our water and answered all my questions. We decided on a water softener and a reverse osmosis. The softener already has made a huge difference in our whole home! The reverse osmosis water taste great, no more bottles of water! The whole team is great, they have also serviced a few family members of mine, and I am happy we decided on using Certain Services!
