In the Hill Country of Texas, clean and safe water is a must-have. You may use a water pitcher with a built-in filter, but what if there was a way to filter the water right from the sink? With water softeners, you can do just that.
At Blanco Heating and Cooling, we understand the importance of chemical-free water. Hard water is not only loaded with metals and chemicals, but it can actually erode your pipes over time. Read on to learn how a water softener can benefit your health and plumbing!
What is a Water Softener?
A water softener is a filtration system that can remove unwanted materials such as calcium, magnesium and other minerals. “Hard” water gets its name from the presence of such metals, as it can potentially have harmful effects on your pipes.
Within the filtration system, resin beads catch these minerals and replace them with sodium or potassium, which are much safer for consumption. The captured calcium and magnesium are then turned into a waste stream that’s drained from the home, ensuring your water is safe.
At Blanco Plumbing, our seasoned plumbers know just how to install your water softener so you can rest easy knowing your water is free of harmful minerals. We’ll help choose the best system for you and install it in a short window of time. You’ll see the difference in your water almost immediately!
What if I Don’t Have a Water Softener?
Without a water softener, you may notice some negative effects on your plumbing infrastructure. It may be time to look into installing a water softener if you experience any of the following:
- Stiff or dull clothing after doing a load of laundry
- Build up of crust around faucets
- Irritated or dry skin after showering
- Build up of soap scum in sink or shower
- Plumbing needing constant repair
- High water bill
There are just a few signs it may be time for a water softener. A plumber will be able to tell you if the issue is hard water or another plumbing issue. At Blanco Plumbing, we’ll identify any problems within your pipes and install a water softener to give your pipes a break.
