Friots Has Solutions For All of These Common Problems

Iron/Manganese Staining

The presence of iron and/or manganese in water can cause fixtures to become stained. The most effective way to eliminate these elements from your water is by installing a water softener.

Hard Water

Minerals such as calcium and magnesium can cause undesirable buildup on household fixtures, hair and skin. Our recommended solution to hard water is installing a water softener.

Corrosive Water

A combination of low pH and certain water-born ions can cause your water to be corrosive. Common symptoms include blue/green staining and pin-hole leaks in pipes. Our prescription for mitigating corrosive water is a neutralizer.

Smelly Water

Our water experts can troubleshoot the root cause of smelly water and identify the best solution.


Arsenic can be introduced into ground water through natural deposits and/or pollution. Chronic exposure to arsenic can have detrimental long-term health effects. To mitigate this problem, we recommend the use of anion exchange technology to remove arsenic from water.


PFAS are a group of man-made chemicals that can leach into drinking water. They do not break down and can accumulate in the body over time. At present there is evidence that PFAS can have adverse  health effects. We provide systems to eliminate PFAS at the whole-house level, or for drinking/cooking water (point of use).

To learn more about reducing PFAS in your drinking water please see this EPA Fact Sheet.

Radon in Water

Radon is a radioactive gas that forms from the breakdown of uranium. It can emit particles that can be hazardous to human health. Treatment for radon in water involves separating the radon gas out of the water and expelling it outside the home.

Poor Taste

Even if you do not seem to have any of the problems listed above, you still may not be satisfied with the taste of your water. There are a myriad of other factors that can contribute to poor taste. If great-tasting drinking water is your goal, we can help you identify the optimal solution, including reverse osmosis.
