3 Signs You Need to Soften Your Water

plumberWait—like melting ice? No. We don’t mean softening water by melting ice. We mean addressing a specific water quality problem—hard water—with a specific piece of equipment—a water softener in Phoenix. Just because you’re familiar with neither doesn’t mean you can benefit from softening your water. Hard water isn’t going to make you ill the way that certain water quality issues can. However, it’s still a problem that needs to be addressed.

So keep the following information in mind, and ask yourself this: are you really satisfied with your water quality? Because if you ask a Sunny Plumber, you deserve 100% satisfaction. Make sure that you take account of your water quality, and never assume that what you have is as good as it gets. Know that we can definitely get you the great water quality that you deserve, though. Soften that water today!

What Exactly Is Hard Water?

Hard water is not hard to the touch. Hard water is simply water that has too high of a concentration of certain minerals. Usually, hard water has high levels of calcium and magnesium. It doesn’t sound like that big of a deal, we understand. However, it’s got a lot of consequences ranging from annoying to actually damaging.

What Types of Consequences?

  • Stained, ugly clothes. When you have hard water, you’re not going to be able to get your clothes as clean as you normally would.
  • Trouble cleaning yourself. Hard water makes it tough to lather soap, and can be ineffective in washing out shampoo and conditioner.
  • Deposits on fixtures. Have you ever seen a white gunk all built up on the plumbing fixtures in your home? Then you are already familiar with one of the most obvious signs of hard water. Those are mineral deposits.
  • Deposits in pipes. Not only do mineral deposits build up on fixtures, but they build up in pipes, too. That can lead to issues with constriction, affecting water pressure and eventually causing damage.

What Can I Do?

You can hire our team, that’s what you can do! Our Sunny Plumbers are water treatment experts, and we will find the right water softener for your needs. This is not going to be a point of use system, by the way. The water softener that you need to soften the water in your home is a whole-house system.

Basically, we’ll install the water softener at the point where water enters your home. This means that water everywhere in the house, from the washing machine to the water heater and the taps, will be treated. You don’t have to worry about moving a unit around from room to room or anything.

The only thing you’ll really have to do yourself is to refill the brine tank with the appropriate softening salt from time to time. And that’s a cinch! So if you’re interested in a simple way to boost the quality of the water in your home, just let us know.
