Cliff Bergin Solves Your Water Issues

Whether you have a municipal connection or a private well, water problems happen and can be concerning for your family. However, they’re more common in private wells since the water quality is not regulated. Our plumbers provide an array of water tests to evaluate your water quality before providing informed guidance on how to improve it. From full water conditioning and filtration services to reverse osmosis system installations, we only recommend solutions you need to maintain healthy water.

Our Plumbers Soften Your Hard Water Problems

The groundwater in Southeastern Wisconsin has naturally dissolved calcium and magnesium which leads to hard water—and many homeowners don’t even know they have it. Hard water can make it difficult for soap to lather, resulting in soap scum. This scum builds up inside of pipes, water heaters, and other appliances, slowing your water flow and causing clogs. The experts at Cliff Bergin provide a variety of water softeners to solve these challenges. With the correct water softener installed, your clothes will look better, last longer, and use less soap, all while extending the lifespan of your household appliances.

Reverse Osmosis Systems Help to Purify Drinking Water

Safe drinking water is vital to our health, but not all tap water is good for us. We recommend reverse osmosis systems to provide clean water for your family. These systems reduce the number of harmful impurities by dissolving inorganic impurities—such as fluoride, chlorine, pesticides, nitrates, and more—and removing them from your water. With these systems, we’ll stop by to test your water and replace your filters annually to improve the quality of your drinking water.

Well Owners Have Special Testing Needs

Well systems are common in Southeast Wisconsin, and our experts service them often. For safety, we recommend that you test your well once a year for total coliform bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids, pH levels, and other contaminants. In addition, you should have your well retested if:

  • Any part of the well was replaced or repaired
  • There was flooding or construction in the area
  • You notice a change in water quality

Most homeowners don’t realize that, even though their water is clear in color, it can still have high iron levels. Common signs of too much iron include a strong metallic taste, and rust- or black-colored stains in your sinks, toilets, and showers. We can test and evaluate your iron level and then recommend a solution, such as an iron filter. Call us to join our annual service list at (262) 242-2456, or fill out our form for more information.
