Water Softener Installation

Hard Water

Shower head with soap scumIf you don’t have a water softener, your home’s water is hard. Hard water is what happens when water percolates through the porous and soluble rocks commonly found in water systems, such as chalk and limestone. This water picks up trace amounts of heavy metals like calcium and magnesium. These minerals are not dangerous to drink, but it does have some problematic effects on your home–and your water bill! 

Effects of Hard Water

Simply put, if you aren’t using soft water, you’re paying too much for water heating, putting your plumbing under too much strain, and spending too much on cleaning supplies.

The Benefits of Installing a Water Softener

This soft water doesn’t contain the metals present in hard water, so it’s a lot easier on you, your house, and your things. Not only is soft water healthier for your body, plumbing, dishes, and appliances, it saves money, too.
