Private water sources, such as wells, often have common problems such as iron deposits, turbidity, bad taste & odor, and acidity. Let’s look at what all of that means.

Overview of common water problems


  • Acidic water, or water with a low pH, can cause a reaction with copper pipes that results in degradation of pipes, blue-green staining on plumbing fixtures or tint in the water.


  • The higher the turbidity of your water, the cloudier it looks due to suspended solids in the water. This is common in private wells or after water main breaks in aging municipal systems.

Bad Taste & Odor

  • Earthy, musty, swampy or organic odors or tastes often caused by decaying vegetation in surface water
  • Chlorine and Chloramine odor and taste often found in municipal water supplies
  • Rotten egg smell (hydrogen sulphide)
  • Iron Deposits
  • Stains plumbing fixtures
  • Stains laundry
  • Metallic taste
  • Musty odor

  • Downflow Water Softener Series - Paragon Water - Best Water Softener System

    Downflow Water Softener Series

    Economy Model

    The water softener must regenerate once the resin bed becomes saturated with calcium & magnesium ions – recharging the bed once again with sodium ions.

    In downflow brining, we lose approx. 18% of our brine just from dilution in the freeboard and the size of the downflow injectors. Reference: Michaud C. (2002)

    Downflow water softeners wash all the hardness & other debris through the clean portion of the bed – requiring it to be regenerated.
