Benefits of Water Softener Installation
High concentrations of minerals such as magnesium and calcium can cause scale buildup in showerheads, coffee machines, and dishwashers and make cleaning harder by creating a slimy film with your soap. Hard water can also dry out and irritate your skin and hair, fade your clothing, and make your water smell and taste bad.
By reducing excess minerals in your home's water, our water softeners prevent their irritating and sometimes damaging side effects. When you install a whole-home water softener system, you’ll notice the difference immediately and enjoy a long list of benefits:
- Cleaner glassware, silverware, and plates
- Cleaner and smoother hair
- Improved soap and shampoo efficiency
- Softer skin
- Vibrant and soft clothes and fabrics
- Reduced greenhouse gas emission
- Increased lifespan of all appliances that use your water
Water Softener Repair and Maintenance
While many water softener problems require professional repair, there are some easy steps you can take to maintain your water softener at home.
For example, you should monitor your water softener usage and add rock salt when necessary. Most systems have lights that indicate when your water softener is running low on salt, which you can replace yourself. The system needs the sodium ions in rock salt to flush the resin beads after mineral removal.
We also recommend having your water softening system serviced at least once a year. Our plumbers will take care of preventative maintenance to fix small issues before they can escalate to cause expensive problems or unexpected system failure.

Water Conditioner vs. Water Softener
Water conditioners and water softeners are both systems that treat hard water, but their processes are different. Softeners completely eliminate minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, and silica via ion exchange.
Conditioners manipulate ions in your water supply rather than removing them. This leaves some mineral content in your water but prevents buildup and damage in your plumbing system. Water conditioners can also treat other contaminants such as algae and bacteria.
