Water Treatment Company - High Nitrates

My well water is showing high concentration of nitrates.

Can anyone recommend a Water Treatment company to install some filtration.

thanks

MDS member, squaregrouper is the one to talk to.

I had to remediate the same issue when I sold me house last month. Wound up installing a reverse osmosis sytem under the kitchen sink with a dedicated drinking water dispenser, and tied to ice maker.

A whole house treatment for nitrates is not practical, as it can be very costly.

Thank you for the input. I was thinking whole house, but what you did makes a lot of sense.

I have used Haque for my water treatment. They have always treated me well and are honest. Just another option is SG is unavailable.

Unless they are really high, nitrates aren't an issue for healthy people. The problem with nitrates is they hinder the body's ability to take up oxygen. A whole house unit will be very spendy and the only thing nitrates effect is drinking water. No point in treating the dishwasher, toilet, shower, etc. Hell, even brushing your teeth and rinsing with nitrate laden water isn't an issue. CAVEAT- Nitrates are an issue with infants and toddlers; make sure they don't drink water high in nitrates.
OP- What is the nitrate level?
Buy this and install it at the kitchen sink in under an hour- problem solved. https://www.amazon.com/APEC-Alkaline...NsaWNrPXRydWU=
