Water supplies not already protected by a municipal water source such as well water supplies require disinfection. Taking the initiative and ensuring the safety of your home water supply is a must, and this requires you provide your own method of disinfection. There are several methods of disinfection one can use such as UV light and chlorination available in liquid or pellet form.
Ultraviolet sterilization is the most popular method for disinfecting water today. UV light takes advantage of short wavelengths to sterilize micro-organisms in drinking water as they pass through the light. Ultraviolet sterilization will never affect the smell or taste of your water as it is a physical disinfecting process requiring no additives. UV systems are also very energy efficient and typically require the same amount of energy as a 40 watt light bulb.
UV disinfection can offer a 99.99% reduction in bacteria and is more effective than chemical processes. If you are receiving your water from a municipal water source, you can always implement ultraviolet sterilization for an additional layer of protection. Your drinking water can never be too safe when it comes to your home and family. The professionals at Upperman’s Water Treatment Services can help you determine the most suitable system for your home or business.

Iron & Sulfur Filtration
Indicators of an iron or sulfur problem in your home’s drinking water can range from staining of bathroom fixtures and laundry, damage to pipes due to build up, and an offensive odor. Homes which rely on ground well water for their water supply are more likely to experience an iron or sulfur presence in drinking water.
Upperman’s Water Treatment Services uses a chemical-free process for iron and sulfur filtration that utilizes oxygen to increase oxidation that in turn increases filtration. This filtration system is a popular solution for homes reliant on well water and requires little maintenance. This method has proven to work very well and is currently replacing manganese greensand filters that were once the most common iron and sulfur filtration method being implemented.
With this method, an air injector is installed between the pump and pressure tank that draws air into the water. This influx of oxygen causes the iron to oxidize which then forms rust particles that can be strained out by a filter. With over 40 years of experience, the experts at Upperman’s Water Treatment Services can assist you in determining the best water treatment solution for your home. Contact us today!
While water travels through the ground, it retains soluable minerals such as calcium and magnesium, creating hard water. Hard water greatly affects the operation of our homes including dish washing, taking showers, doing laundry, cooking and more.
The solution to a hard water problem is a quality water softener from Upperman’s Water Treatment Services. Typically, a water softener is an appliance that is integrated into your home’s water system, replacing harmful minerals with sodium (salt). Most water softeners utilize an automatic regnerating system that has an electric timer which flushes and recharges the system on a schedule.
Another type of system uses a computer that keeps track of water usage and when enough water has passed through the tank to have depleted the sodium beads, regeneration is then activated. A third type of system utilizes a water meter to measure usage and begins recharging. The mineral tank is only recharged as needed, and if equipped with two mineral tanks soft water is always made available.
At Upperman’s Water Treatment Services, we offer only the best in water softening solutions from Aqua Systems Products. We also offer electronic demand water softeners that utlize a dual tank water softening method. This type of softener manages the flow and hard water is regenerated based on overall usage as previously mentioned.

Softener- Electronic Demand
Electronic demand water softeners are the traditional two-tank softening method. They use metered water usage, which manages the flow and regenerates based on usage. Because it is not a constant running system, it will save on salt and water usage. This is a very economical and eco-friendly system that works well in all applications. There is very little electricity use and it comes with a capacitor back up which eliminates the need for a battery backup.
Water that has high amounts of Iron and Sulfur does not only smell bad, but can also build up in your pipes, ruin your laundry and discolor your sinks with rust. This chemical free process uses added oxygen to increase oxidation, therefore increasing the filtration. This system is typically used for homes with ground water wells and very simple to operate with low maintenance needs If you’re tired of the smells and stains, worry no longer because we can help.
Ultraviolet Sterilization is used in many disinfecting areas such as medical supplies, air filtration and of course, water filtration. The UV light uses short wavelengths to sterilize the micro-organisms as they pass through the light. This is the most popular choice of sterilization today and is typically used for well water usage. Upperman’s will help you determine the correct sized system needed for your home or business so that you can have clean healthy drinking water every day.
Chlorination is an option for water disinfection although it is typically used for commercial applications. It is available in liquid or pellet forms.
Reverse Osmosis – Drinking Water System
Reverse Osmosis systems have 3 steps: Pre-filtration, the Membrane and the Final carbon filter. The pre-filtration removes the large particles, silt and rust from the water before it sends it to the membrane. The Membrane is a very fine filter that allows only Hydrogen and Oxygen through while rinsing away minute particles. Once you turn your tap on to retrieve water, it goes from the holding tank through the final carbon filter to create a fresh and delicious glass of water. This system is used for both public and well water users. When you’re ready for water the way it should be, give Upperman’s a call!
