Say No to Hard Water!

Get a Water Softener

Getting a water softener installed in your home is a great way to solve the hard water problem in your home. The upfront cost is worth saving money on your monthly bill, having more clean dishes and having a clean shower.

Hard water is the result of water picking up minerals ie. calcium and magnesium from rocks, dirt etc as it travels through the terrain and eventually ends up in your home. In regards to your health, it poses no threat, but to the functionality and aesthetics of your appliances it poses a huge threat.

What’s the Big Deal?

When hard water comes out of your shower faucet or sinks faucet the calcium and magnesium dry in the form a white crusty substance around the faucets. Not only is this NOT aesthetically pleasing for your home, but it compromises the functionality of your appliances. The calcium and magnesium deposits build up in your pipes which reduce the flow to your tap and increases your utility bills because it causes the appliances to work harder to generate the same results that are easier to generate without the water deposits getting in the way.
