Today, no one can take water quality for granted. Florida is one of those states that struggle with hard water due to the minerals in our water sources, and Tampa is no exception. Whether your household water comes from a municipal source or a private well, you very likely could be experiencing hard water. Soap and shaving cream don’t lather well, your skin can feel dry and itchy, and you can see mineral deposits or yellowing on your laundry if your household water has high levels of various minerals.
To help you determine just what level of quality water you have, Ben Franklin of Tampa has dedicated consultants ready to test for unwanted minerals, water hardness, pH imbalances and other invisible contaminants. If you do have significant water quality problems, our experts will be able to recommend water treatment systems to help soften, filter and decontaminate the supply as it comes into your home.

Other Water Quality Problems
Hard water is only part of good water quality. Homeowners in Tampa are experiencing a range of different quality issues, and they can all manifest in different ways. Water-acidity can cause that “rotten egg” smell, water supplies can be contaminated with illness-causing pathogens like E. coli or Cryptosporidium, and some homeowners complain of sediment showing up in their drinking water or in the shower.
We have an array of solutions to each of these water-quality issues.
- Soft Water Machines
- Acid Neutralizers
- UV Water Disinfecting Systems
- Water Conditioners & Filters
- Reverse Osmosis Systems
- Chemical Feed Pumps
- Specialty Cartridges & Housings
- Filtration Systems
Acidic water (which has a low pH balance) can create stains on your plumbing fixtures, create a sharp chlorine-like smell and create corrosion of your pipes and other fixtures that can lead to leaks. Unless you treat the problem, your water can be contaminated with copper, lead and other materials from your pipes and appliances.
Our expert technicians can combine water softeners and acid neutralizers to successfully treat highly acidic water from municipal and private water supplies to help you avoid these problems. Acid neutralizers in particular can effectively remove iron that can stain your fixtures and help remove hydrogen sulfide, which causes that “rotten egg” smell.
Ultraviolet (UV) Purification Systems
Ultraviolet light is a tremendous disinfectant. What’s more, it uses no chemicals or additives in order to eliminate pathogenic microorganisms like E. coli, Cryptosporidium and Giardia (which can contaminate Florida drinking water) from water entering your home. Ask your water treatment technician about the benefits of a UV light system for your home.
Sediment and dirt can make their way into your home’s water supply, especially if you draw from a well. Our state-of-the-art water filtration technology uses a 5-micron fiber-spun filter to catch sediment and debris that would otherwise build up and clog faucet aerators, shower heads and plumbing fixtures.
A water filtration system helps to keep sediment out of your drinking water, off of your laundry and out of your pipes, providing you with clean water for cooking and extending the life of your plumbing.
Water Testing & Analysis
Our expertise is unsurpassed when it comes to water testing and analysis. Water quality can vary from town to town – even well to well in the same neighborhood. That’s why we recommend testing your water before purchasing any water treatment or soft water system.
