Water Softener Systems – old

Enjoy Soft, Healthy Water Throughout Your Home.

Hard water is no friend to a healthy home. It can dry out skin, leave unsightly marks on dishes, damage appliances and more. A quality water softener prevents these problems by removing the minerals that cause hard water. Some softeners can also remove chlorine, ammonia and the cancer-causing elements barium and radium 226/228.

We can help you find the best water softener for your home today. We sell, install and service all makes and models, including Ecowater, GE, Whirlpool, Fleck and Kenmore. Plus, receive professional installation from a licensed plumbing company with over 50 years of experience servicing water softeners!

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a water softener do?

A water softener removes the minerals that cause hardness from water. The best models can also remove harmful contaminants like radium 226/228. As a result, the water is safer for you to consume, bathe in, clean with and run through your appliances.

How does a water softener work?

Salt-based water softeners work through a process called ion exchange. When hard water flows into the system, it filters it through a tank full of small resin beads. These beads attract calcium, magnesium and other hard water minerals out of the water. The system then sends the newly softened water to the water fixtures in your home.

Of course, the resin beads can only collect so many minerals before they need to be cleaned. That's why the softener has another tank full of salt brine solution, which periodically cleans off the resin beads through a process called regeneration. You must fill this tank with water softener salt periodically for the system to run properly.

Is a water softener worth it?

Yes! Water softeners are essential in regions with very hard water, such as Northern Illinois and Southeast Florida. Without the protection of a water softener, you will be vulnerable to all sorts of hard water problems, including:

  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Brittle, tangled hair
  • White residue on faucets and dishes
  • Brown stains in your toilet
  • Clogged plumbing
  • Discolored clothing
  • Broken water heaters and dishwashers
  • Consuming harmful radium 226/228
  • And more!

So, even though a softener costs extra upfront, the investment will be worth it to protect you from costly and uncomfortable issues down the line.

What about salt-free water softeners?

The title “salt-free water softener” is a misnomer because the device does not soften water. Instead, it should be called a salt-free water conditioner. The reason for this is the device uses next media to keep the calcium ion attached to the water droplet. This only protects the internal components of your plumbing system. However, once it leaves the plumbing system, it is still hard, meaning it can cause dry, itchy skin, brittle hair and many of the other hard water problems listed above.

Therefore, a salt-free water softener is only worth it if your goal is to prevent scale inside your plumbing system. If you want all the other soft water benefits, you should go with a salt-based system.

How much does a water softener cost?

A typical investment is around $20-$70 per month. However, the exact cost of your system will depend on your needs. For this reason, our team will test your water to see how hard it is and if you are dealing with any other contaminants a softener could remove. These factors along with how much water you use will determine the cost of the water softener you need.
