From David and Patricia
OMG! What would we have done if it hadn’t been for Ms. Colleen Roberts and her “No BS Water Blog”.
Let me explain, my husband David and I purchased a small farm in the Triad area of North Carolina in 2010 as a back up retirement plan in case I was to lose my job. All we knew was that we could pay cash, it had enough square footage for us to work with and that was about it.
We gave no thought to the fact that the property’s water supply was from a well that could actually be harmful to us. We are, after all are city folks from California, we never gave a thought to our water supply, we would always just turn on a tap to clean everything; Then buy bottled water to drink. Then in 2011 I lost my job of 30 years so we moved. What an eye opening experience!
We were constantly asking the local people, “how do you get rid of the red staining that sits in our toilets and our wash basins?, why does the water smell so bad? Why does this water dry my skin so badly?”
No one had any answers until a very good friend from California (Thanks Michael) led us to a wonderful lady who was touted as the most caring and knowledgeable Groundwater expert in North America. Our friend was right. Her name is Colleen Roberts of British Columbia and owner of “No BS Water Blog and Webinars”.
Colleen walked us thorough, step by step, on exactly what to do to eliminate the smell, the bad taste, and the red staining that was coming from our well, she is a water genius and very passionate about water wells needing to be safe for drinking.
She first suggested that we get a professional Water Chemistry Report that lists all the mineral components as well as potential bacteria (what!) coming from our well. Once we knew what we were dealing with, Colleen located a local water well expert for us to contact and work with.
She spoke directly to him and told him exactly what to do. Although he didn’t really want to go the extra mile (too much extra work, I suppose) she insisted that he clean up the well then install and then advised of the correct water treatment system for our water chemistry.
It’s all so technical. But here’s what I can tell you. We now have sparkling crystal clear water with no staining what-so-ever and no smell. Colleen even recommended an ionizer machine that makes the water taste like water should taste and keep our bodies in an optimum healthy condition. We couldn’t be happier! Thank you, Colleen.
