Considering a Water Softening System?

Dependable Service

 

Many areas have what’s known as hard water, including areas in and near Myrtle Beach. Hard water has a higher concentration of minerals like magnesium and calcium that can cause damage in your home, depending on how hard your water is. The minerals in hard water build up in pipes, creating scale and narrowing the inside of the pipes, increasing pressure that could cause leaks. Hard water also contributes to mineral and scale build-up in your hot water heater, decreasing the efficiency of the unit and increasing your energy costs. Those are just two reasons to consider a water softening system – here are a few more:


  • Prolongs the lifespan of all appliances that use water in your home by reducing scale and build-up that creates wear and tear. Your water heater, dishwasher, ice maker, clothes washer and coffee maker will thank you – by giving your more miles for your money.
  • Reduces water spots on glasses, dishes, fixtures and faucets. Water spots are caused by minerals in the water. Reduce the minerals and you reduce water spots for the brightest shiny clean you’ve ever seen.
  • Saves soap and cleaning products. Soaps and cleansers are less effective in hard water because the cleansing agents react with the minerals and thus it takes more of it to get the clean you desire. Remove the minerals and soaps are better able to do the job you purchased them for.
  • Softens hair, skin and fabrics. Less minerals in the water allows a cleaner rinse and less soap reside left behind for softer and smoother hair and skin. Softer water rinses clothes cleaner with the added benefit of preventing build up of mineral particles in the fibers, keeping those new towels fluffier longer.
  • Saves you money throughout your home with lower overall energy costs and less damage (and repair costs) for all the things using water from your front door to your back yard and everywhere between.

“Requested an appointment online – got a call back very shortly (on the weekend!) to schedule for early next week. Tech arrived right when he was supposed to, we went over my issues, came up with a plan of attack, and he got to work. I got busy doing other things around the house, and about an hour later asked me to come check things out. Bill was very reasonable, and was written up and emailed to me while on-site. Paid with a credit card on their tablet (very cool!) and he was on his way.” –-Mike S.
