Jefferson Homes Partners with Secondwind
Jefferson Homes owner Dave Lauze has been building beautiful custom homes throughout New Hampshire and Maine for over 35 years. His attention to craftsmanship, quality, and customer service has earned him a reputation as one of the region’s most respected builders. When a home Lauze recently built in Hollis, New Hampshire had a water quality problem, he knew he could count on the certified professionals at Secondwind Water Systems to help.
“I’ve never had the need for water treatment on a project before. I was familiar with Secondwind and chose to work with them based on their solid reputation in the industry,” Lauze explains.
High Arsenic, Iron, and Manganese
“The well had an unacceptably high level of arsenic. It also had a lot of iron and manganese,” explains Jesse Gagnon, Certified Water Specialist at Secondwind. The home was being sold to a couple with two children. The wife is a cancer survivor from her childhood and wasn’t going to take any chances with contaminated water. “Simply put, the home sale wasn’t going forward until a comprehensive water treatment system was installed,” he points out.

“The Secondwind team quickly worked together to design and install a system that addressed all of the well’s water quality issues. This meant installing a whole house arsenic oxidation and removal system as well as a Kinetico K5 drinking water station to the kitchen sink and refrigerator/ice maker. We also treated the iron and manganese with a backwashing filter and water softener,” Gagnon explains.
The Secondwind Signature
Lauze was comfortable entrusting us to manage his project’s water quality issues because of what we call our Secondwind Signature. It’s a series of rules and best practices that guide every water treatment system installation we do. It includes the guiding principles used to train our technicians and sales representatives, so every job we do subscribes to consistent levels of quality and service. “It incorporates ways to meet code, and ways to make the job more easily serviceable in the future,” explains Gagnon. ”Our Secondwind Signature sets the bar high and adds significant value to our work. It also builds pride and confidence in our customers once they compare their system to what others have,” he adds.
Our Secondwind Signature is what sets us apart in the industry. It begins the moment we receive a request for water treatment services, and continues throughout system design, installation, and service.
Intelligent, Orderly Design
As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. The photos below visually demonstrate how our Secondwind Signature is manifested in every water treatment system installation we do.
The home’s new water treatment system is intelligent and orderly, not crowded. The reverse osmosis system is neatly and securely mounted in the basement. The plumbing is straight, not convoluted, making it easy to follow where the water is going.
The system equipment is clearly labeled with appropriate warnings and instructions. A sampling tap (faucet) is installed to allow for easy “raw water” testing in the future.
Finally, as part of our Secondwind Signature, our water treatment systems drain to the customer’s preferred location—whether to the septic or the home’s exterior.
