Treating Gretna, NE’s 25 grain Hard Water, High TDS, Iron (Rusty) and Nitrate well water.

EcoWater Systems of Nebraska has consistently demonstrated the expertise to resolve all hard water problems from high calcium and magnesium mineral content deposits (such as limestone, chalk and dolomite) to high nitrate levels from agricultural animal waste and pesticide runoff.  EcoWater Systems of Nebraska has also been providing, for more than 50 years, top tier, state-of-the-art water filtration systems specifically designed to address rust causing high iron levels, affecting clothing, fixtures and sinks as well as high TDS (Total Dissolved Solids), commonly found in the greater Gretna NE area.

Eliminating TDS from Gretna, NE’s well water

Total dissolved solids are a combination of everything dissolved in your water. High TDS in drinking water is hard on your body to process and your kidneys are left doing the heavy lifting.  In short: The less TDS in your drinking water, the better.  Although certain naturally occurring TDS arise from the weathering and dissolution of rocks and soils, total dissolved solids are typically due to agricultural and residential runoff, leaching of soil contamination and discharge from industrial or sewage treatment plants.   Chemical constituents are typically calcium, phosphates, nitrates, sodium, potassium and chloride, which are all found in nutrient, storm/rain and snow runoff. More unusual and dangerous elements of TDS are pesticides arising from surface ground runoff in agricultural areas.   Offering only the best-of-breed water filtration systems, EcoWater Systems of Nebraska successfully eliminates or dramatically reduces high TDS with the HERO 375 Reverse Osmosis System or the EcoWater Whole Home Solution, both GUARANTEED to give you great tasting, low TDS, drinking water.

EcoWater Systems of Nebraska, removing Iron from Gretna, NE well water

If you live in Gretna, NE you know first hand that iron can leave rust stains on sinks, tubs, toilets, clothing and linens.  It can also, in some circumstances, form scale and clog plumbing and water using appliances while making water turn brown as well as smell and taste bad.  Iron or rusty water is created when ground water passes through iron-bearing rocks, but it’s important to know that iron comes in various forms. Frequently water treatment companies and BIG BOX retailers will recommend a water softener as a one size fits all solution. That may or may not be the correct remedy.  In actual fact, the only iron that is removed by the water softening process is iron in the Fe2 or “ferrous” form, but if the iron is bonded with microorganisms, also known as “bound” iron, a water softener will have virtually no effect in solving the problem. The only way to implement the correct solution is through the testing of the actual water, which must be done at the site, because once the water becomes exposed to air, it will change form. pH is one of the most critical elements in controlling the effectiveness of the equipment used for iron reduction.

Eliminating Nitrates from Gretna, NE’s well water

Although indispensable for plant growth and frequently added to the soil for field crops to improve productivity, rain or irrigation running through that same soil carries the dissolved nitrate with it to ground water. Nitrates are a naturally occurring form of nitrogen, which is exceptionally mobile in H2O. Consumption of water, high in nitrates, inhibits the oxygen carrying capacity in red blood cells, and is potentially harmful. EcoWater Systems of Nebraska’s technology of choice, for a whole house solution, is an EcoWater ESS 1000 XR32 with a specialty resin. This unit regenerates with salt (like a water softener), but the specialty resin removes nitrates.  For more limited, point of use applications, EcoWater’s advanced ERO375 5-Stage Reverse Osmosis System is ideally suited for your kitchen water supply in providing outstanding drinking water.

EcoWater Nebraska and Gretna, NE

The original 19th century village, that today is Gretna, incorporated on July 10, 1889. Named by the earliest settlers, after their native Scotland’s Gretna Green, the town came into being after the Burlington Railroad built a line between Omaha and Ashland in August of 1886. The beginning of the village of Gretna with its brand new laid rail line was the death knell for the nearby trading post of Forest City, which had existed since 1856.
