Install a Water Softener in San Antonio

Most residents know that the San Antonio Water System reports that we have hard water in our area. Will Fix It recommends a whole home water softener or water purification system to deal with hard water.

Water Softener Installation

What Is Hard Water?

When the water supply to your home contains high levels of dissolved minerals such as calcium and magnesium, you will notice the effects throughout your home. For example, hard water contributes to spotty dishes and soap scum in the bathroom. It also can create scale and lime deposits in many home appliances, such as coffee makers, dishwashers, and water heaters.

Benefits of Water Softening

The magnesium and calcium ions in hard water make it difficult to create an effective lather with soap, making cleaning difficult, including dishes, laundry, or even showers. Water softening saves you money on cleaning products and helps prevent unsightly issues such as water spots on dishes.

Hard water can also be harsh on the skin and can worsen issues such as dry skin and eczema. Conditioning your water may help you with your skincare.

Hard water also causes mineral build-ups in pipes and water heaters, leading to an increased chance of clogs and greatly reduced efficiency of your water boiler. Even small deposits can cause these issues, and treating your water is an effective way to get ahead of these issues.

How Does a Water Softener Work?

A water softener uses sodium to exchange ions with calcium and magnesium within the unit.  The sodium replaces the hard minerals, effectively “softening” your water. While the added sodium amounts are not significant, if you have very strict dietary sodium restrictions, it is worth noting that your softened drinking water will be higher in sodium than your previous supply.

Signs Your Water Softener Needs Service

If your water pressure has dropped, your water softener sounds like it is constantly running, or your water softener is not using the normal amount of salt, your water softener might be struggling and in need of maintenance. If you see these signs, Will Fix It can service your unit. Our skilled team can clean your injector, brine line, brine compartment, and more!
