Odden Household Water Treatment Installation 

Water Problem:

This customer just built a new home in Portland and found that the well water was very hard and contained arsenic roughly 10 times the maximum contamination level set by the EPA.

Odden Household Water Treatment Installation Solution:

We installed a high-efficiency water softener to manage the elevated hardness levels. There are several options available to mitigate arsenic, which we discussed in detail with the homeowner. Determining which option fits the customer’s lifestyle best is a crucial step for FONTUS. 

Typically, reverse osmosis is the recommended technique we use with elevated arsenic concentrations (as well as many other contaminants). Still, in this case, FONTUS decided an adsorption-based media would require less maintenance and provided water in the locations in the home the customers desired. We then performed a “speciation” to ensure this solution provided the longevity in the system we wanted for this customer. Speciation is a test that specifies what “type” of arsenic is present in the water and the concentration. Using this information, we can use a computer program to estimate how long we expect the system to last. Often people will use an adsorption-based media system to treat all the water in the home. In this case, we just fed the cold-water locations the homeowners felt were essential to treat. Selecting specific locations in the home, makes the media last much longer, which ultimately saves the homeowner money. 

FONTUS is committed to finding the right water treatment solution using our experience, knowledge of water chemistry, and the latest technology. We are confident we can provide a quality water treatment system for your home that fits your family’s needs, and your budget.


Your water can be quite different than your neighbor’s water, which is why FONTUS advocates for testing your water regularly. Unfortunately, some water treatment companies install the same cookie-cutter equipment in every home. In reality, the chemistry of the water coming into your home dictates the appropriate water treatment method. In addition, each property’s water has a unique chemistry. Individual location water chemistry is determined by geography and the house plumbing. This on-site visit to your home or commercial property allows us to customize your water treatment system. Our goal is to ensure we provide precisely the service you need and want from your water treatment system. You’ll receive an efficient water treatment system designed to manage the water supply specific to your water chemistry when you call FONTUS.
