Charlotte Water Softener Service

You can never guarantee that the water coming from your tap is 100% pure, and this can be quite concerning.

Most of the time, residential H20 contains some form of impurities and dissolved minerals including magnesium and calcium. While small portions of these minerals are nothing to worry about, larger quantities can be damaging to both your plumbing system and your health.

So, let's talk about these handy filters and why you need one!

What Are The Benefits Of Soft Water?

Obviously, a water softener softens your H20, but what are the benefits?

  • It protects your home and plumbing by decreasing maintenance, increasing your plumbing's lifespan, and keeping your appliances healthy.
  • Soft H20 provides better cleaning efficiency. However, when it's hard, it creates more soap curd which increases the amount of scum on appliances.
  • You'll have softer hair and skin. Hard H20 can dry out your hair and skin in the shower and soft H20 reverses this.
  • You're protecting the environment. Softeners decrease the amount of greenhouse gases your home emits.

How Long Does a Water Softener Last?

Electricity running softeners can last between 2 and 10 years, depending on the quality of the model. And softeners that use kinetic energy from water flow have the capacity to last much longer. If maintained well, they can be used for up to 20 years.

You'll be able to tell when you need to replace your softener by the following signs.

  • Scale build-up in aqua-using appliances.
  • Faucets exhibit a white crust build-up.
  • Yellow or red stains around faucets and drains.
  • Mineral spots on crockery or in the bathroom.
  • Scratchy clothes that are fading in color.
  • Lower water pressure when in the shower.

Experienced any of these? Maybe it's time to schedule a water softener service.

What Water Softener System Is Best For My Home?

When choosing the perfect softener for your home, you'll want to take into account these factors:

  • Your water usage and household size
  • Regeneration style
  • Do you want your softener to remove additional contaminants like chlorine?
  • Do you want other convenience features like low salt indicators?
  • Is your water especially hard? Will you need extra features like the ones listed above?
  • Do you want a filtration system too?
