Water filtration companies lakeside

Recommended Posts

We recently moved here full time and are right on a lake with a well:/ No filtration at all. After searching here I contacted Jacki with H2Ole and we are 2 weeks into that situation with nothing happening yet and we are bathing and doing laundry with this water which I assume is basically just lake water. Jacki seems nice but so far just the water testing costs 2900 pesos and he has quoted us between 50,000 -60,000 pesos for a water filtration system for the house. We just rent and while that is a bit of cash are OK with the cost if we can get it rolling. My question is are there other companies that might be able to do this as well? The timeline is my biggest issue and we want something done sooner than later. Would appreciate any recommendations on who other than Jacki we could contact.

Water from your well should be clean since the level of your well should be way below the lake level, but check your bacteria level of the water.  The lake water e. coli level is way  below the Mexican or US standard.  You surely don't need purified water for your laundry or garden.  I would image only your drinking water is of concern.  You can buy bottled water for way cheaper or have a filter put on your kitchen sink.

We will have the results of the water test tomorrow or Wednesday so we will see. Kind of wanted the shower to be reasonably clean too but again we will see what the results are tomorrow:-) If it is as you say, certainly we should be able to have a reverse osmosis at the kitchen sink for dishes and the like and if the water is not deadly for a shower that will be great! 
We drank bottled water NOB as the community we lived in had been all agricultural for generations so we didn't drink our well water there either. If we can get along with just filtration at the sink that would probably be lots easier. We also wanted to get some sort of pressurized system though because we have hardly any water pressure:/ Showers are a real bummer with the water just barely trickling:/

You might try a pump on the water line from your tinaco to the house.  I had one about 1/8 or 1/4 hp and it made a difference.  You might need a slightly bigger one if your water is trickling.
