The Metro Phoenix area and surrounding cities have some of the hardest ground water in the nation. Hard water is caused by too many minerals such as manganese, magnesium carbonate and calcium levels in the ground which gets soaked up by the water and makes it hard. Most cities use ground water to provide water services to residents and commercial customers and even though water gets treated before entering our homes there are still some levels of minerals in it.
Some characteristics of hard water may include spotty dishware after washing, grungy looking clothes and bath tubs and sinks with soap scum left behind. Hard water also affects us when bathing in it. Our hair and skin are dry and may have a bad smell and taste when drinking it. Our appliances and entire home plumbing system get affected by hard water leaving lime deposits and cause them to fail which can be expensive to repair or replace.
Investing in a water softener system can remove the minerals to make water safe to use straight out of the faucets. You can drink the water, bathe in it, wash your clothes and not damage your water appliances and plumbing system. There are several options to consider staring with a whole-house water softener. This system will filter your water beginning from the entrance of your home to all faucets in your home including your water heater. You can also choose a water filtration system that can be installed under your sinks that will remove minerals, tastes, smells and toxins that may be in your water and, make it safer to dink or cook with.
To help you determine which system will work best for your home you need to find out what minerals or toxins are in your water. Please call us and we can test your water and help you determine the best water filtration or softener for your household.
