Water Treatment

Mid-American Water & Plumbing has been in the water treatment business since long before it’s incorporation in 1990. We take the time to talk to each client about their water usage habits. We test the water to identify specific areas of concern such as excessive lime, sodium, rust, etc. MAWP customizes a water treatment system especially suited for the individual client.

Water Softeners

Your Family Will Feel The Difference a Quality Water Conditioner Makes Throughout the House.

In the Bathroom:
Your soap and shampoo will lather better.
Your hair and skin will feel noticeably cleaner, softer, and not as dry. And there will be no soap scum or mineral deposits to clean off sinks, showers, tubs and toilets.

In the Laundry:
Clothes will be softer, cleaner, whiter and brighter. Plus they will last longer. Using soft water and pure soap products increases the life of clothing, towels and linens up to 33%. Without hard water service issues, washing machines last longer, too.

In the Kitchen:
Dishes will clean up more easily, and be spot free, without the gray film glasses get when etched by mineralladen water. Plus hands will feel softer and look better.

Throughout the House:
Water-using appliances will last longer and run better. Why? Because hot water heaters, washing machines and dishwashers used with hard water can wear out 30% faster.

Over time, soft water savings can really add up. For instance, conditioned water not only delivers greater washing power, it reduces the amount of soap you need to use by up to 70%. In fact, the Bureau of Statistics found that between 17 and 20.8 cents of every dollar are spent on cleaning products. Soft water can reduce that bill by up to 65%. It can also eliminate extra rinse cycles and hot water. Plus using less detergent, household cleaners and chemicals is better for the environment.

The bottom line?
Soft water can save you thousands of dollars!

Reverse Osmosis Systems

How a Reverse Osmosis System Works:
Reverse Osmosis is a process in which dissolved inorganic solids (such as salts) are removed from a solution (such as water). This is accomplished by household water pressure pushing the tap water through a semi permeable membrane. The membrane allows only the water to pass through, not the impurities or contaminates. These impurities and contaminates are flushed down the drain.

Most membranes remove 90-99+ % of the dissolved impurities depending on the impurity and the composition of water.
