Cost of Maintenance vs New Equipment

It’s easy to take your appliances for granted and forget they’re even there, let alone that they need maintenance. This especially applies for drinking water systems that are hidden in your basement or under your sink. However, “out of sight, out of mind” is a dangerous path. If you neglect to perform maintenance now, you’ll be paying big money on repairs once the system finally fails. Think of it like a car: oil changes are cheaper than engine repairs. So, before you let your system reach that breaking point, call Angel Water and schedule your annual inspection and maintenance visit today!

Can a Water Softener Relieve Your Dry, Itchy Skin?

If you have dry, itchy skin or frizzy hair, it may be because your water has high water hardness or chlorine levels. Water hardness is a measure of the presence of certain minerals, which not only dry out skin and scalp, but can also cause eczema with childhood exposure. Around 85% of Americans have hard water in their homes. Chlorine, which is added to municipal water as a disinfectant, can also cause rashes, acne, and eczema, because it kills the good bacteria in our skin.

The Importance of a Water Softener

Is Reverse Osmosis the Best Water?

At Angel Water, we believe the best water comes from a reverse osmosis water filtration system. A reverse osmosis system from Angel Water removes up to 97 percent of impurities and remineralizes the water when the filtration cycle is complete. Installing a reverse osmosis system creates the best water for you and enables optimum hydration.

Why is Reverse Osmosis the best?

Better Than Bottled
By ensuring quality and removing toxins, Reverse Osmosis water lessens the dependence consumers have on plastic water bottles. Most often, people use plastic water bottles to avoid contaminants like lead and arsenic. Both are removed through the process of reverse osmosis along with a need for plastic water bottles and unnecessary waste.

Best tasting water
According to the National Rural Water Association, lead, iron and nitrates often make tap water unpalatable. While most reverse osmosis systems strip the water of necessary minerals, our filtration process puts the necessary amount of magnesium and calcium back into the water, ensuring the best taste.

Safe for compromised immune systems
By removing toxins and reinfusing essential minerals, reverse osmosis water is safe for people with compromised immune systems. For people who have been diagnosed with autoimmune disease, cancer or multiple sclerosis reverse osmosis water can ensure optimum hydration in the body and ease the physical stress of chronic disease.

Why our reverse osmosis water is different
Besides retaining the utmost quality and long lasting service, Angel Water strives to educate and empower customers on the choices they make. Our water educators work to provide customers with enough information and education to help them make the best choice for their lifestyle. We promise a 10-year guarantee for all products purchased as well as the peace of mind that goes with it.

By making a long-term investment with Angel Water, you can improve the quality of your life and prevent health-related problems in the future.

Why is my soft water slippery?

Do you feel slippery when using soap? Unable to “wash the soap off”?

This is a normal feeling and indication that the water softener is working properly.

Why does this happen? 

Soft water is void of calcium hardness. When we wash our hands with

What’s the best way to wash using soft water?

1) USE LESS SOAP. When washing hands or using the shower, try only a dime sized amount of soap. Also when washing clothes, use 1/4 cup of detergent and cold water to wash with. Soft water makes cleaning much easier because the soap doesn’t have to fight the calcium in the water. Also there’s no need for washing clothes in hot water. Washing clothes in cold soft water preserves the colors while deep cleaning the clothes.

2) USE ORGANIC SOAP. Organic soap behaves better because it doesn’t have synthetic chemicals in the water that will stick to skin. Organic soaps are also healthier humans and the environment.
