Why Move to Soft Water?
Soft water can bring greater efficiency to your life. From time spent on chores, to energy use, and the amount of soap you use, soft water makes it easier.
Water from your public water system has added minerals like calcium and magnesium. While these minerals do have health benefits, gradual buildup is damaging to your household appliances.
You can install systems to remove these minerals. Soft water, similar to rainwater, flows through your taps and can make your home run more efficiently.
The minerals in hard water leave spots and residue on your dishes. Using soft water makes your dishes, bathtub, and even your hair, shiner.
Hard Water Uses More Energy
When the ions of minerals in hard water react with soap, it is more difficult to form a lather. This means you use more soap with hard water. You and your systems will be less effective and use more soap to wash the dishes, laundry, and your hair.
Hard Water Can Damage Household Appliances
Hard water can damage appliances when sediment collects and restricts water flow in your home’s pipes. This can decrease water pressure and further damage to your plumbing system.
Soft water is often considered “smoother” and lacks the “chemical” taste that is sometimes detected in hard water. Stop buying bottled water and enjoy water right from your tap!

Frequently Asked Questions
Water Filtration & Softening
Water softeners typically last 10 to 15 years (though it may be higher or lower depending on how hard the water is in your area), at which point they need to be replaced. You can tell whether a water softener replacement is needed if you start to notice: more scale and grime buildup in your sinks/showers; your dishes aren’t clean after being washed by the dishwasher; or, your skin is itchy after a shower/bath.
Hard water contains minerals (lime, magnesium and calcium). These minerals can damage your appliances and home systems. A water softener filters minerals from your home’s water supply. This ensures the safety of your home’s appliances and systems.
A water filtration system separates pollutants from our water. This ensures water is clean and safe for drinking, cooking, cleaning and more.
Water Quality & Testing
Water pollution occurs when water is contaminated by a number of possible causes, including: sewage and wastewater; industrial waste pollution (via chemicals); agricultural waste; marine dumping human garbage (i.e. plastics, glassware, etc.); oil leaks; fossil fuel ash; landfill leaks; and, chemical fertilizers/pesticides.
Water quality indicators are measures that are used to test the quality of water. Key indicators include: amount of dissolved oxygen, water temperature, pH balance level, Escherichia coli (E. coli) level, transparency and amount of nitrates.
Water quality standards are parameters set and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure water is safe and clean for drinking, and aquatic water life is protected. As mandated by the Clean Water Act, every state must adopt water quality standards that work towards achieving this goal.
Water is vital for us humans and our environment. We use water every day for drinking, cleaning, bathing, cooking and more. Ensuring it is clean protects our health and safety.
