Forest Pump & Water filtration systems provide your family with the highest quality water obtainable.

Forest filtration systems are available in a wide variety of configurations and costs depending on the particular compounds or gasses to be removed.

As you can see from the list below, the naturally-occurring elements from subsurface aquifers vary from nuisance to unhealthy as determined by the EPA.

forest pump showroomOur in-house water testing lab allows us to determine the precise components and concentrations of those elements which should be filtered. We can then provide you with the proper equipment along with a precise quote that includes all parts and labor.

Our licensed and insured installation crews are polite, friendly and they particularly pride themselves on the neatness of their work.

 

Common compounds & containiments requiring filtration

Hardness - Is a value given to water containing minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Hardness is a hot water heaters nightmare; scaling up elements in hot water tanks and boilers. In concentrations above 30mg/l it can leave a scaley, white stain in tubs, sinks, and washing machines.

Iron - A naturally occurring element that is not harmful but causes orange or brown staining in fixtures and laundry. The acceptable Iron level is .3 mg/l(milligrams per Liter)

Manganese - Is also a naturally occurring element that causes a dark brown or black stain in fixtures. The acceptable level for Manganese is .05mg/l.

pH - A scale of corrosivity. Seven being non corrosive or "neutral"; below seven is considered acidic and above seven is basic. Acidic water is dangerous to plumbing; stripping away layers of copper pipe and depositing green stains in sinks and tubs. The acceptable pH scale for drinking water is 6.5 - 8.5.

Hydrogen Sulfide - A compound element found in a gaseous form giving water an unpleasant "rotten egg" smell.

Arsenic - Is a toxic element synonymous with "poison". It has been proven to be carcinogenic and tends to attack the kidneys, and liver. The EPA has recently changed the maximum amount of acceptable Arsenic from .050mg/l to .010mg/l for public drinking water. This new Maximum value was placed in January 2006. The Northeastern United States and the Southwest are "hot spots" for Arsenic contamination.

Bacteria - There are numerous types of waterborne bacteria which can cause digestive tract problems. The worst of these "coliforms" is known as E. Coli. This pathogen can cause severe Kidney infections and possibly death.
