Steamboat Springs, CO

Steamboat Springs Colorado is a very unique and great place to live!  It is the only small town to have two separate  water providers. One provider is Mt Werner Water District of Steamboat Springs and the other is Steamboat Mountain water, As always in a small town, some homes have a city water supply and some have their own private well water. This is always a fun challenge for us in treating the different types of water. We must always treat well water differently then city water.

Water softeners are still the number one requested product for water treatment in Steamboat Springs as they work great for well water as well as city water.  But with all city water you should always have a whole house carbon tank for removal of poison gas like chlorine and chloramine. These disinfection additives will also create many other poison gasses in the water supply and all of these poison gasses are carcinogenic!

For the most part the city water in Steamboat Springs is pretty good compared to the water in other large cities.

All city’s do a good job of managing the PH level as having a low PH would effect the city water distribution system in a negative way. On the other spectrum, well water usually has low PH and that needs to be tested and addressed. The average hardness level in Steamboat Springs and Routt is pretty high, about 15 Grains-per-gallon, and that is what is leaving all the white spots on everything. It is easy to take out the hardness with a water softener.

Steamboat Springs adds chlorine to disinfect the water. This liquid gas is meant to disinfect the water supply to keep bacteria from growing in the water pipes. It is a poison and is designed to kill so in my opinion it should be taken out of the water supply for the whole house. I do not believe we should smell it, shower in it or drink it.

“Al Vanden Heuvel’s knowledge about water is second to none. I had him install a custom whole house water filter that works flawlessly. I have complete confidence that my filter protects my family due to Al’s passion and knowledge about water filtration. I have had systems by Rain Soft in the past. They were a lot more expensive and did not compare to the quality and performance of my Water Choices filter.”
