In this region, water mainly comes from Yosemite Valley from the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir. Although the water supply is considered soft, about 10% of the water in Portola Valley comes from ground water. Ground water has a higher mineral content and as a result, you will notice the damaging effects of hard water on pipes, counter-tops, faucets, hot water heaters, etc. The recent drought forced more and more water companies to use more ground water. In addition, city water uses chlorine and ammonia (chloramines) to disinfect the water. Many people do not like the smell or feel comfortable bathing and drinking chloraminated water.
Regardless of your water problems, De Anza Water Conditioning has the necessary solutions.
