Water Quality Testing

We all want – and deserve – clean drinking water. But how to achieve that requires some technical know-how – starting with testing your water to determine what we’re starting with. At Koegel Plumbing & Heating Solutions, we believe the decisions are in the data. So if your water is hard, smelly, or leaving stains, schedule a water quality test with Koegel today. We’ll help you find the cause and install the right equipment to give you soft, clean, great-tasting water.

We can test for pH, hardness and iron content. If your readings fall outside of an acceptable range, we can discuss your many options with you, including:

  • Water Softeners
  • Iron Filters
  • Sediment Filters
  • Whole House Filters
  • Carbon Filters
  • Reverse Osmosis Water Filters

You can put our over 35 years of plumbing experience to use for you. So call now and rest well with Koegel!

Water Filtration

Water filtration is a necessity here in Alexandria, MN. The geography just means we have to work harder to obtain soft, clean water for multiple uses on our properties. Here are some ways that Koegel Plumbing & Heating Solutions can help you with your water filtration needs:

Sediment Filters

Nobody wants crunchy water. Let us help you remove the sediment that can accumulate in your tanks and pipes.

Carbon Filters

Carbon filters can help remove unwanted tastes and minerals from your drinking water but without the hassle of stand-alone filters or pitchers.

Whole House Filters

Make sure that you’re getting top quality water from any tap in your house by installing whole house filters.

Iron and Sulphur Filters

Brown, smelly water is not ideal. If your water smells like a rotten egg or is brown from possibly corroded pipes, you may need to install a system that will filter out the iron and sulfur – and the corresponding bacteria – that naturally occur in our water. If the cause of the contamination is from corrosion in your pipes, Koegel has sewer locating equipment and excavating equipment available to handle the job without unnecessary delay.

Reverse Osmosis

Reverse osmosis is a water filtration method used to remove mineral compounds, bacteria and other materials from your water supply, leaving your water typically up to 99.9% free of contaminants. This is the process used to make bottled water and all water that is used in soft drinks. Not to be confused with distilled water, reverse osmosis is a very desirable way to make sure you have clean, great-tasting water.

Water Filter

Water Softeners

If you notice that you have to use a lot of soap, detergent, or shampoo to get things clean, then you probably have “water hardness” issues. If you have noticed a film in your shower or on your dishes you have “hard” water.  Hard water occurs when your water has too much calcium or magnesium – which contain positively charged ions that cause your soap and hair to fall flat – and the soap you are using does not completely dissolve them leaving behind a film.

These minerals can also cause buildup within your pipes. If left untreated, you could see reduced water flow to showers, taps and various household appliances – which could lead to costly repairs. A water softener can help prevent those repairs by removing those ions. Whether you need to install a new water softener or repair the one you currently own.  Call Koegel Plumbing & Heating Solutions in Alexandria, MN today to schedule an inspection or to perform maintenance on your current water softener system.

They found a solution to our problem almost immediately. I couldn’t be happier with the service I received. I wouldn’t even consider using anyone else!!
