The largest water issue in south-central Wisconsin is hard water. Which is where having a Hellenbrand water softener will help the water quality in your home.
The aquifer supplying our drinking water in south-central Wisconsin requires little treatment. Madison Water Utility disinfects it with chlorine to reduce the risk of microbial contamination. Small amounts of chlorine kill bacteria and viruses potentially present in groundwater. Chlorine also travels with water, ready to kill microbes that it might encounter. The goal is to maintain a chlorine residual above 0.1 milligrams per liter (mg/L) at all points in the distribution system. Typical concentrations range from 0.2 to 0.4 mg/L.
