A water softener is the hardest working appliance in the house. However, this is the only device that so many will try to go the cheap way.
A water softener protects your biggest investment, YOUR HOME. Protects everything that hard water touches. The hot water heater is greatly affected by hard water. It can shorten the lifespan drastically. The washing machine, dishwasher, ice maker, coffee pots, faucets, glass in the showers are all affected by hard water and not in a good way, it’s just expensive.
Your clothes, bedding fade faster, stiffen and dull much faster. All these items are expensive to maintain or replace because of hard water. Your hair and skin are dry, even hard water stings you. However, people will go to the big box store and if it has a household name, they will buy a water softener. These are the poorest quality units which can only be used for an average of 9 months or 4 years before it is disposed of and replaced.
Remember, San Antonio has some of the hardest water in the United States. There is a difference in how inexpensive water softeners work and how higher quality one’s work. Short term solution or long-term solution.
Many will remember the $650.00 purchase price but forget the $450 installation fee. Quality water softeners give you 24-hour protection against hard water. Quality Water Softeners will last up to 4-5 times longer. When sized right, it will supply soft water to all baths and fixtures at the right flow rate for your home. It will regenerate every 7-10 days max, and some will go further. Making it more efficient to sustain salt and water usage over a long period of time. Therefore, a higher quality system will save you a lot in the long run.
Protect what you own from hard water. At Simple Water Softeners, we’ll give you quality at a very affordable price. Call Lisa for more information or send us an email.
You need to know what is in your water softener. It all sounds good when you buy it but years down the line when you need work done to it, you do not remember what is in there. What type of media and what quantity of each is very important.
Once media has been mixed together and years later when someone opens it up they can only guess what all is in there. At Simple Water Softeners, we do not mix media. We feel the correct way is to put different media in a different tank. Medias, resin, carbon, KDF it all has different life spans. So when mixing together in a single tank you cannot change out the different medias as they actually expire. Most people will end up waiting for the resin to go bad and then replace everything. But the carbon expired four to six years prior to that. Know how much media of each and the life span. It does no good to have something that will only last 6 months, yet you change in 8 years. Just as anything, there is a vast number of brands with all different levels of quality.
If you have an iron breaker, it is very important to know what media you have in the tank. People will get a new well and run an extensive water analysis. The equipment is set up for the results. But again years later, probably 10 to 12 the media needs to exchanged out for new. The majority of houses just need the basic media, but if yours has something special, unless you run a new water analysis you may not get the correct replacement. So, know what was put into your tanks.
Take care of your water softener is to take care of your loved ones, so call the experts for a consultation about your water softener media. Don’t hesitate! Call us now at (210) 960-2555 or email us at email@example.com
Your pets know water. Let’s face it, their nose is better than yours. Pets will drink the water from your tap if you give it to them, they need water. But do they like it. Ask yourself, do you like it? Probably not. Just as hard water will not hurt a human, it does not hurt your pet. But just like you, if your pet liked their water, they would drink more water. And we all know the more water we drink, the healthier we are. Not many of us drink enough water. But if you like the water you are drinking, you will find you will drink more. Our fur babies will feel the same way.
First, if we add a whole house filter, they will. This will remove the chlorine, herbicides, pesticides, and organics. The chlorine is the big thing, the bad smell is gone. Pets love Reverse Osmosis water. This is the next level up, reverse osmosis is bottle quality water. Same process as Dasani, Aquafina, Smart this water goes through a membrane filtering out 97.5% of everything.
Filtered water also protects your pet from hazardous bacterial contamination such as giardia and cryptosporidium which can be present in poorly treated tap water. Overall, filtered water for pets will not only keep them healthy but provide them with clean, refreshing drinking water.
Just remember water is healthy for your pet, so Simple Water Softeners can come up with a solution for it. For more information about our Water Filtration please call Lisa at (210) 960-2555.
If you’re a resident of San Antonio and Hill Country Texas, there’s a good chance you’re experiencing the chalky marks on your dishware after washing, and minerals that are crusty and keep your countertops and faucets from appearing sparkling clean.
The water from the underground source is filtered through limestone and has significant amounts of dissolved minerals, typically magnesium and calcium when it is pumped out of the ground. The mineral content is commonly known as water hardness. The San Antonio area has one of the highest hardness levels in the United States. So, if you reside in this region of Texas and don’t have a water softener for your water there is probably hard water that is flowing through the pipes in your house.
The fact that your home has hard water, does it suggest you require a softener for your water? In the end, water that is hard is safe to bathe and drink in. If you’re willing to deal with the additional scrubbing required to keep your home clean, dull hair, stiff laundry it is possible to be content without the use of a water softener?
The problems caused by hard water can eventually turn expensive. Hard water may cause the formation of limescale in your pipes, which could cause corrosion, and ultimately the need for expensive repairs. Additionally, this accumulation of scaly deposits can make your water heater and other water-related appliances to use 20% more power more than if they have properly conditioned water. This can cause the premature breakdown of your appliances. Water heaters, coffee pots, faucets, ice makers, toilets Our highly trained experts will assess the hardness of your water and offer the highest quality, long-lasting systems for water filtration that can give you constant protection against the harm of hard water.
