Do you know about the unique needs of Manatee County water? Do you know what brands, models and configurations work best here, and how long they last?
When it comes to water filtration services, one size does not fit all. That is, one type of water filter product provides vastly different results depending on the water it’s treating. Drinking water and tapwater—and, more specifically, what’s in that water—varies greatly depending on where you are.
And if you think there are certain characteristics to “Florida water,” think again: It’s way more specific than that.
Water filter companies that are well established elsewhere still might not know anything about our particularl water. Experienced water technicians who have worked for years and years with, say, South Florida water, or Jacksonville water, or Orlando water, or even Tampa water, are still totally inexperienced with the unique qualities of our water here in Bradenton, Ellenton, Lakewood Ranch, Longboat Key, Palmetto and Parrish.
And that goes for big-name national water brands, too. If they’re headquartered in Cleveland or Chicago, then they likely couldn’t tell the difference between the Manatee River and the Rio Grande.
What Makes Manatee County Water Different?
It’s not that Manatee County water is “different” because it stands out in one way or the other. It’s that every water supply has its own unique characteristics influenced by 100 different factors. And no other water supply goes on the same journey that our water does here.
The source of the water is the very first thing we think of when we consider water treatment options. Where the water comes from can tell us a ton about what might be in it—and what needs to be removed.
Manatee County water (and Sarasota County water, too) comes primarily from the Peace River. However, that’s just the first step. The water treatment process is extensive, and it’s also specific to this particular water supply in this particular area.
Remember that: No one water supply is like any other. Even the very first step in the process is unique to every single supplier in the country (and, really, the world).
That’s because every water supply starts somewhere (rain, river, reservoir or spring), and is then affected by environmental factors as well as the water supply chain—that is, how the treatment facility filters, treats, stores and transports that specific water.
And of course, if you use well water, then your water goes on a totally different journey—one that’s shorter, but just as unique.
What Else Affects the Water We Use?
There are many other qualities that differentiate water from one place to the next. Those factors can be as far-reaching as the water source and as specific as the types of plumbing and taps you have in your home or business.
And the way that plumbing affects Manatee County water will be different than if, say, Minneapolis water was flowing through those pipes. All the unique variables affect each other in unique ways.
Why Does Water Source Matter in Water Treatment?
The point here is that, as water technicians, the better we know our own, unique, hyper-local water, the better we can treat it.
Yes, many other water technicians throughout the country will have a similar knowledge of the purification products on the market right now. And many of them will have knowledge of their own area’s unique water. But very few of them will know Manatee County water like we do.
Because we’ve lived here, worked here, and been drinking Manatee County water for nearly 20 years, we know it well. Plus, we’ve seen what Manatee County does to products over the years. It’s hard to surprise us.
Healthy Water owners and technicians have been working with Manatee County water for more than a decade. We already know what you’re getting. And we know what products will work with it.
