Improve the Quality of Your Well Water
Approximately 11% of Irish people get their water from private wells. Water sourced from well or other natural sources such as lakes or rivers, is likely to be contaminated with bacteria, iron, manganese, sulphur, and many other impurities. This in turn leaves homeowners with many problems. From brown stains on your bathtub to smelling water from your kitchen tap, these impurities turn out be frustrating for an end user.
It becomes your responsibility to ensure the water you’re drinking is safe for drinking. If your water is supplied by a private well, it’s vitally important that you are aware of the contaminants in your water. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends periodic testing for water for total coliform bacteria, nitrates and lead.
Our Well Water Treatment Systems
Usually there are different options for treatment of well waters. And no single treatment system can protect your well from all problems. Watercare provides customized treatment solution for you based on your water test results.

We offer a range of treatment systems that work to drastically improve the quality of water from your private well.
Water from wells is typically very hard and many homeowners benefit from getting our water softening systems installed. Water softeners remove hardness causing minerals (calcium & magnesium) resulting in soft water that is easier on your water-using appliances such as boilers, washing machines, dishwashers, electric kettles etc. Soft water provides skin and beauty benefits as it doesn’t damage your hair and skin.
Soft water also saves you a lot of money due to increased efficiency of appliances, reduced energy bills, and no equipment breakdowns.
Iron & Manganese Removal
Water containing high levels of iron and manganese not only looks unpleasant but is not fit for drinking. It also leaves tough stains on your bathtubs, basins, and even clothes. Over time, you might see issues with your plumbing fixtures.
Our experts suggest different media and equipment for iron and manganese removal depending on the levels present, type of iron, water consumption, and presence of other impurities.
If your water smells like rotten eggs, it might be due to presence of sulphur in water. Contamination levels may quickly and without notice increase dramatically, changing a nuisance to a major problem. If left unattended, it may corrode your taps and other metal components. The pH of water also impacts the solubility of gas.
To remove sulphur from water, we usually recommend aeration system along with activated carbon filters.
Bacteria such as E.Coli and coliform are found in most shallow wells and their concentration may vary depending on rainfall. We don’t use chemicals to treat bacterial contamination. Instead, we treat it using ultraviolet water filters as it is one of the safest ways to disinfect your well water.
Water with low pH is acidic and should not be consumed. Anything with pH less than 7 is acidic and every point below neutral levels increases the acidity exponentially. Acidic water is a major household problem as it leaves blue/green staining around bathtubs and sink. Over time, this acidic water corrodes your plumbing fixtures and water tanks.
Our pH control systems neutralize the pH levels in water so that it does not damage your hot water tanks and prevents leakage.
