Wisler Plumbing Provides Safe Water From Tap to Well
If your water comes from a community water system, the operator in your community is required to follow the regulations known as the Drinking Water Standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). By law, they must protect drinking water quality by limiting the levels of specific contaminants that can adversely affect public health. That’s why they put chlorine in your water.
However, that same chlorine is caustic is slowly damaging the rubber seals and gaskets in your plumbing system and appliances. As the rubber breaks down, it will eventually cause faucets to drip.
Do you really want to drink the same chemical they put in pools?
Equal Opportunity Antagonists
According to the Western Virginia Water Authority over half of the water source for the Roanoke Area and Franklin County area is hard to moderately hard (see hardness report at WesternVAWater.org).
So whether you're on well water or community water you’re likely dealing with hard water. Furthermore, hard water is not the responsibility of the Environmental Protection Agency.
Hard water doesn’t just scum up your shower and leaves spots and dehydrated fog on your glassware and flatware. It does the same thing to your water heater only on a much larger scale.
Every time hard water is heated, minerals solidify and settle on and around the heating element. The heating element has to slog through the limescale; warm is the new hot and your energy costs start skyrocketing. Eventually the limescale mummifies inside your water heater and last rites must be administered.

Choose Great Water
Don’t put up with crappy water in your home. The solution to your water issue is determined by what’s in your water that shouldn’t be there. That’s why we always start with a comprehensive water test. Once we know exactly what is in your water, we’ll know what has to be removed, and prescribe the solution that will fix it.
Likely Solutions Tailored for You:
These change your water by removing the invisible or adding elements to the water. Water treatment can remove calcium (hard water), iron which causes staining or raises the pH in acidic water by adding calcium to the water. A UV light is used to remove bacteria or any type of ozone or chlorine.
Homes with very problematic well water may need both a water treatment system and water filtration. For example, if your water has iron, hardness, pH issues, you should begin with a water treatment system that will clean the water so that a polishing filter like a refrigerator filter or reverse osmosis system can refine the water and make it taste great.

Measured in grains per gallon (GPG), the lower the number, the softer the water.

- 3-6 gpg = Moderately Hard Water
- 6-9 gpg = Hard Water
- 9+ gpg = Extremely Hard Water
Measured in parts per million (PPM), you want as little iron as possible. The EPA recommends less than 0.3 ppm. Any reading over 0.3 ppm may cause red staining on plumbing fixtures and clothing. In addition to plumbing and clothing deterioration, excessive iron can cause stomach problems and have a negative effect on your skin.
You want this number to be as close to 7.0 - or neutral - as possible. The lower the reported number, the more acidic the water is. The higher the number, the more alkaline your water is. With more acidic water, you:
- May have pipes corroding a leaching unhealthy metals into your water
- Start experiencing a metallic or sour taste from the water
- Start seeing unexplainable stains on your laundry
- Your sinks and other fixtures will have a blue-green stain on them
- Have scale buildup on your plumbing
- Pay more to heat your water due to inefficiency (due to scale buildup)
- Experience a bitter taste in your coffee
