    I have spent a lot of enjoyable time working with people who have questions and concerns about environmental and health related issues about groundwater. People ask questions like: How do I know my well water is safe? What do I need to do to safely install a geothermal or ground source heating system? What do I need to do to get a permit to take water? Where do I find a good hydrogeologist or professional geoscientist or consultant?

    If people want some help with these types of questions they can just ask me. I have worked on a number of projects such as: looking at water test results to determine if treatment is needed and what type; is there enough groundwater of good quality to put a groundwater heat pump in; my water is contaminated what should I do; I want to get a permit to withdraw groundwater or surface water - what do I do, etc.

    Being a professional geoscientist and having a master's degree in hydrogeology, as well as over 7 years of experience allowed me to answer those types of questions. It is rewarding to help people out.

    I have a geothermal unit (climatemaster) installed recently. I also have a well water. The pH is 6 and hardness is 3. The geothermal unit is connected to water heater through copper plumbing. House plumbing is cpvc pipes. Question is - will this water damage geothermal unit? Is 6 pH considered acidic water? Thank you

    AS y old man used to say, RTM (Read the manual). The installation or operation manual will tell you what the acceptable range of pH and hardness is. If you did not receive the installation manual (bad form by an installer IMHO), find it online.

    I had a new boiler installed 3 years ago, and all that is clearly spelled out in the manual.
