Water Treatment Services in Hicksville, NY

Water quality affects the lifespan and efficiency of plumbing systems and appliances. While modern water treatment supplies reliable access to clean drinking water, there is often room for improvement and it may not meet ideal purity standards. This can also lead to scale buildup in pipes, boilers, and water heaters, reducing efficiency and energy costs.

Gold Star Plumbing, Heating, & Cooling offers water treatment services to remove contaminants and make it safe for drinking and household use. Our team specializes in installing and maintaining advanced water filtration systems and softeners for safer water supply. We have the knowledge and technology to ensure that every drop of water is a testament to purity and quality.

What Causes Hard Water?

Hard water results from high concentrations of minerals, primarily calcium and magnesium, in the water supply. These minerals naturally dissolve into the water as it passes through soil and rock formations.

Common causes include:

  • Presence of limestone, chalk, or gypsum deposits
  • Water sourced from wells or underground aquifers
  • Treatment with lime or other substances
  • Runoff from fertilized fields or industrial areas
  • High evaporation rates in hot climates or dry regions

Our Water Treatment Solutions

We provide comprehensive water treatment solutions to address any issues with your household water supply, including:

  • Water filtration systems, such as whole-house filters, remove contaminants such as chlorine, lead, and bacteria to deliver safe and pure water for all your needs.
  • Water softeners use the latest ion exchange technology to remove minerals like calcium and magnesium from your water supply, preventing scale buildup. 
  • Reverse osmosis systems remove up to 99% of dissolved salts, particles, and other impurities, providing crystal-clear and great-tasting water.
  • Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection is a chemical-free method of killing bacteria and viruses in your water supply, keeping your water safe and free from harmful microorganisms.

How Does Water Treatment Removes Harmful Contaminants?

Water treatment utilizes various processes to eliminate potential contaminants in water supplies. 

Different treatment methods target specific types of impurities for comprehensive protection: 

  • Coagulation and flocculation: Positive-charged chemicals and water cause suspended particles and impurities to stick together into larger clumps or “flocs.” 
  • Sedimentation: Clumped impurities become heavy enough to gradually sink to the bottom of the basin or clarifier tank. 
  • Filtration: Water goes through filters made of layers of sand, gravel, and charcoal that trap and remove remaining particles and impurities.
  • Disinfection: Chemical disinfectants like chlorine, chloramine, or ozone may be added to kill harmful microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, and protozoan parasites. The chlorine also disinfects as the water travels through pipes to homes.

Is It Time for a New Water Treatment System?

If you notice any of the following signs, it may be time to upgrade your home’s water treatment:

  • Unpleasant taste or smell in water
  • Stains or scale on fixtures and appliances
  • Frequent system repairs or malfunctions
  • Rising water bills without increased usage
  • Skin irritation or health concerns linked to water quality

High-quality water filtration and softening systems can effectively last around 5-10 years before media or components need replacing. A well-maintained water treatment system can function effectively for 10 years or longer with routine professional servicing. 

At Gold Star Plumbing, Heating, & Cooling, we operate your system at peak performance for maximum longevity. We pride ourselves on transparent pricing, reliable service, and dedication to customer satisfaction.
