Hi Steve,

I, too, am in the same boat as April and April's description is right-on for me too. To answer your questions for my situation,

1.  Hook up to city sewage line.

2.  City water.

3.  6

4.  Ok, drinkable, no apperent smells.

5.  No for right now.  If yes in the future, would this change what we need to do the system.

Thank you.

Looking for to your recommendation,


Water Quality

I will answer questions on residential water treatment, i.e. use of softeners, filters, reverse osmosis systems, disinfection, iron and/or sediment removal and other issues facing the homeowner. I have worked extensively with well water systems.


I have worked in the water treatment area for many years as a consultant and as a professional environmental engineer in the private industry sector. I have designed reverse osmosis, deionization, and water softening systems. I have also done work in water quality and stream and river remediation as it relates to the Clean Water Act.

I am currently serving as an Expert for Home Improvement, Travel (New Mexico) and Travel (North Carolina);

BS Environmental Eng.
