Wakefield Company Responds to North Shore Water Quality Issues

BOSTON, Aug. 28, 2018 — 128 Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electric, a BBB A+ rated home service company with more than 1,000 five-star reviews online, is responding to ongoing battles with water quality in the North Shore area with recommendations for homeowners seeking clean, clear water for drinking, cooking and bathing.

North Boston-based 128 Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electric responds to local discoloration issues with water filtration recommendations for area homeowners.
In Lynnfield, residents have been battling discolored water throughout this summer. Discoloration usually comes from an abundance of minerals like iron and manganese in the water, and it can wreak havoc on plumbing systems, appliances and causes concern for clothing and even dishes. Directional flushing, a technique used by water treatment facilities to force excess sediment and minerals out of water lines, can actually cause a temporary spike in discoloration while in process.

“Discoloration, while not always dangerous, is a notable inconvenience and can cost homeowners valuable time as well as money when they have to replace fixtures ruined by iron deposits,” said Ryan Williams, general manager of 128 Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electric. “Rather than wasting water by turning it on for the recommended 15-30 minutes to make sure it’s clean before using, we recommend investing in a whole-home water filtration to protect your family’s health and save time.”

Whole-home water filtration systems remove the excess minerals and contaminates before the water leaves the tap or flows into the washer, eliminating the need to constantly run and check the water appearance before taking action.

“August is National Water Quality Month, and the timing couldn’t be better for a little awareness for our North Shore neighbors,”
Williams said.
