Protect Your Appliances

Most residents are aware 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 our hard water.

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.

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.

How Does a Water Softener Work?

Without getting too detailed, 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.
