Why Intermountain Water?
Water in the Intermountain West is 3 - 5 times harder than the national average. This can pose serious problems for water systems that are mass-produced for the lowest national averages.
Hard water can coat your family, your home and your appliances with thousands of pounds of inorganic mineral rock-scale each and every year. Hard water slowly destroys everything it touches. Left untreated, hard water costs you money, ruins your lifestyle and can even lower the value of your Idaho Falls home.

Why Idaho Falls Should Hire Us For Their Water Treatment Needs
There are many variables that can negatively affect the efficiency, performance and reliability of an Idaho Falls water conditioning system, including:
High Water Hardness: The harder your water is the larger a system must be to remove contaminants effectively. However, if the system is too large it will waste water and salt while potentially allowing your system to be contaminated with bacteria.
High Water Pressure: Municipalities in the region could never have foreseen the massive population influx that has occurred. Cities are now forced to increase net pressures in piping distribution systems to push as much water as they can to new housing developments. These high pressures can raise attrition rates and cause premature failure in equipment.
Low Water Temperature: Although cold water tastes good, it is not good at all for water softening, conditioning or filtration equipment. Cold water has been proven to reduce system operating capacities by as much as 60%. Undersized systems will have a much greater chance of failing when the winter influent water is as cold as it is here.
Chlorine & Chloramine: All ion-exchange based water softening, conditioning and filtration systems can degrade at a minimum average rate of 5% - 10% per year (attrition) due to chlorine alone. Intermountain Water’s proprietary Structured Matrix media has a much slower chlorine attrition rate than traditional softening resins.
Iron & Heavy Metals: Resin attrition is further exacerbated by factors such as high water consumption, inadequate regenerations, elevated chlorine levels, iron & heavy metals in water. Even after leaving the city plant meeting or exceeding EPA minimum standards, your water can absorb and collect contaminants such as copper, zinc, lead, rust, manganese and a host of others before it even reaches your home. These are obviously potentially harmful to humans, but even more dangerous to your water equipment unless it is specifically designed to address these threats.
Heterotrophic Plate Count Bacteria (HPC’s): Your city produces water that is free of bacteria and safe to consume. However, HPC’s can exist in piping, water meters, fittings and regulating valves. These HPC’s are benign but can be the growth medium for potentially pathogenic bacteria. HPC’s can grow and colonize in a water system in as little as 4 days, even with chlorine or chloramine in the water. If your water system is not specifically sized & designed to address HPC growth issues, then your system could be a ticking bacterial time-bomb. Intermountain systems are specifically designed to use Pur-Gard or Pur-Gard Plus as well as regenerating appropriately to mitigate this risk.
