Well Water Treatment and Solutions in Southwest Florida

Know what’s in your well water and how to treat it for safe, clean water throughout your entire home. Certain Services, Inc. offers affordable and effective solutions for iron, nitrates, arsenic, hard water, hydrogen sulfide (smelly water), and more.

Certain Services, Inc. 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!

We will perform a basic test on your water to determine your Total Dissolved Solids, Hardness, and Chlorine content and present you with a professional analysis of the results. We’ll also recommend water treatment solutions to fix the problems you have with your water. There’s no obligation to purchase anything and zero pressure. Our goal is to inform you of what’s in your water and how to fix it cost-effectively.

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.

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.

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.

Smelly Water (Hydrogen Sulfide or Iron Bacteria)

There are typically two water contaminants that can cause your water to smell like sulfur or rotten eggs, one is Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) and the other is iron or sulfates.

 H2S is a mineral that is released from the earth and finds its way into groundwater. It’s especially common in well water located near shale, sandstone, coal, peat, or oil.

 Occasionally, a rotten-egg smell in your water could also be caused by a water heater or by sewage pollution in your water. If you’re on city water, the most likely explanation is your water heater.

 The most important thing to note is that it is ALWAYS worthwhile to get your water tested as H2S poses a serious potential health risk including nausea, vomiting, and other serious health effects.

PFAS, Lead, & Cyst

Water in our area has frequently been positive for lead, cysts, and PFOA/PFOS. These chemicals have been found to exceed the levels set forth by health advisory organizations and may cause health problems.

The chemicals Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), also known as C8, and Perfluorooctane Sulfonic acid (PFOS) are bio-permanent, resistant to direct oxidation, and do not break down naturally in the environment or the human body. Studies suggest that exposure to these chemicals may lead to cancer.

Chromium 6

A new study by the Environmental Working Group reports that local 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 our local water 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

Arsenic

Arsenic is a common water issue in Florida, however, it can be easily and affordably removed with an under-sink filter from Certain Services, Inc..

According to the CDC, “Arsenic can enter the water supply from natural deposits in the earth or from industrial and agricultural pollution. It is widely believed that naturally occurring arsenic dissolves out of certain rock formations when ground water levels drop significantly. Some industries in the United States release thousands of pounds of arsenic into the environment every year. Once released, arsenic remains in the environment for a long time. Arsenic is removed from the air by rain, snow, and gradual settling. Once on the ground or in surface water, arsenic can slowly enter groundwater. High arsenic levels in private wells may come from certain arsenic-containing fertilizers used in the past or industrial waste.” Click here to learn more.

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 awoke one morning to no water. I called Certain Service. They responded quickly. They had a tech in the area. After completing that job,Nick responded to our call. He immediately identified the problem and made the repair. He then checked all the equipment and found our softener was not working. Another quick fix. He answered my questions and was very explanatory on what he was doing. I will “Certainly” use this company without hesitation. We awakened to water this morning! Thanks Nick and Certain Service.

We've been using Certain Water Services for five years. They helped us keep our old system going as long as possible. I really appreciate that they understood our tight budget and worked with us. Finally, the system failed once and for all, and we got a new one. The price was fair and they set us up with easy financing. The new system is awesome! No more sulfur smell, no more skin rashes and our hair looks gorgeous! We LOVE Certain Water Services because we know we can always count on them! Highly recommended by me!

I had not had maintenance done on my water treatment system since its installation several years ago. Certain Water Services' tech, Cody, was punctual, friendly, answered all my questions in a most patient and knowledgeable manner, and has my system performing like new. Moreover, Certain's friendly office staff set me up with a reasonably priced maintenance schedule. I look forward to a mutually beneficial business relationship.

Kurt Tellschow

"We are very pleased with the water treatment system you installed for us. From the beginning, Kelly arranged an appointment for Mark to visit our home and assist us with our water quality concerns. First, Mark analyzed our water quality and in a very simply and thorough way, described the problems in detail along with the options we had.  From there we made an informed decision on what model fit our water needs and finances. The actual installation took place a few days later and was done very professionally and tidy. The technician explained how the equipment worked and answered all of my questions. The equipment has worked flawlessly, just as Mark said it would. Mark is due back in a few days to test our water again, to be sure it is calibrated perfectly. End of story. Thank you Certain Services for an outstanding experience and great water!"

Terry Tullman

"I was very happy with my experience from the initial call to and including writing the check. I was impressed with the accuracy of the time given for the arrival of the technician and his knowledge and efficiency in diagnosing the problem once he arrived. I was very pleased when he said he had a replacement pump on the truck and got to work immediately. I have worked in the plumbing supply business for over 40 years and am no stranger to actual plumbing installations. Cody was the consummate professional. He went about the pump replacement in an organized and expert manner. The bill was well within the range that I had surmised it would be. I will definitely call Certain for all my plumbing and water works needs with confidence."

Steve Howell

"Our experience was excellent. First of all, we got same day service! Nick was very professional. He was timely and got our system up and running correctly in no time. Most importantly to us during the pandemic, he respected our request to communicate via our cellphone. He did a great job explaining what the problem was, what he did to fix it, and the charges for the repair. Once again, Certain Services, Inc. has proven why they are our “go to” company for all things water related. Thanks for the great experience!"

Debbie Ruhstorfer

"You guys are tops in my book. Techs are knowledgeable and even take the time to explain what they are doing.  I like the fact that your techs have experience with your company, not always someone new. There is value in longevity in business."
