"Kaleb was extremely proficient and professional. He communicated all the work he did and made several recommendations which were greatly appreciated." - Michael T.
The minerals in hard water can accumulate inside the pipes in your plumbing as the water flows through. Over time, those mineral deposits can build up to the point where they begin to narrow the passage through the pipes, resulting in more frequent blockages and other complications. Those blockages can then cause further damage to the pipes, which means you may need to call your plumber more frequently.
Water softeners can remove the minerals from the water, making it softer. Your plumber will install a large salt tank in your garage to accomplish this goal. The salt attracts the minerals, effectively drawing them out of the water before it enters your home, flushing away the mineral-loaded wastewater. The salt dissolves over time, so you’ll need to replace it every once in a while to keep your system working as it should.
There are numerous benefits to softer water, including:
Less wear and tear on your plumbing
Softer skin and hair
Fewer water spots on dishes
Better-tasting drinking water
Reverse osmosis systems take water treatment a step further, filtering out additional contaminants and balancing pH for the best possible tasting drinking water. The treatment system typically goes under your kitchen sink for easy, convenient access. The tank under the sink stores the treated water, and a dedicated tap delivers it. Reverse osmosis systems require minimal maintenance, though you’ll need an annual tune-up to replace the filtration materials.
