We’ve all read about the worst-case scenarios in parts of the United States with lead and other toxins in their water, which can have horrible consequences. Even if your town isn’t dealing with water quality issues of that magnitude, your tap water may still contain agents you don’t want there.

At Homestead Comfort, we offer a range of water treatment services. We help families in Tolland, Hartford, and Windham Counties prevent hard water and other issues.

What is hard water?

One of the most common problems we address is hard water. The hardness of water is determined by how many minerals are in it. These minerals include calcium and magnesium. For the most part, you won’t be able to see these minerals, but they can accumulate and form deposits.

  3. Cleaning and lubricating seals, pistons and spacers
  4. Purging the water system
  5. Retesting the operation of the water system
