Water Softeners

Need A Water Softener?

Water softeners are the most cost effective and efficient way to keep your water clean.

A water softener removes calcium and magnesium ions from the water that comes out of your faucet. The reason for this is, these minerals cause the pipes to build up deposits on the inside walls of those pipes. Then, over time it slows down the flow of water and eventually causes a clog. Also, the minerals react badly when you use soap to wash your hands, your dishes etc. So, for practicality and for your convenience it just replaces these minerals with sodium ions. Then the water comes out clean and ready for use. There are also many types of water softeners. These range anywhere from reverse osmosis to distillation.

The quality of water in your home is very important for maximizing the life of your plumbing system – which includes the inside of the water pipes, water heater, faucets, toilets, dishwasher, and clothes washer. Here are some other benefits of installing a water softener in your home.

  • Smoother, softer skin and hair
  • Increased life of plumbing appliances
  • Reduced scale buildup on fixtures and piping
  • Brighter, whiter laundry while using less soap
  • Less wasted energy

Water Softener Installation Services

Water softener installation requires three things: access to your main water line, a drain to connect to, and an electrical outlet. Water softening units are weatherproof, so they can be installed indoors or outdoors. And we always want to install them at the entry point of the main water line, before it branches off to other fixtures.

Once installed, your water will flow into the house, flow into the system, get treated, and come out softer. Water softeners have resin beads inside that extract calcium and magnesium. This results in less white buildup in your pipes and on faucets and fixtures throughout your home. After installation, we’ll test your water again so you can see the difference.
