Water Softener

Soft water makes a difference you can see and feel…  

Soap & shampoo lathers better and won’t leave stains or buildup on your sinks and bathtubs.  Dishes clean more easily and dry spot-free.  Clothes come out of the laundry cleaner, softer & brighter.  Water Heater & Appliances last longer with less maintenance

Iron Breaker 3

If your water has the sulfer odor of “rotten eggs”, if there are iron stains on your sinks and bathtubs, if you use large amounts of soap to clean dishes, wash your hair or suffer the “orange hair” effect sometimes caused by iron water, you probably have water that can be successfully treated with an IronBreaker III

Reverse Osmosis

Whether you just want the fresh, clean taste of bottled water without the expense and waste, or you need protection from waterborne contaminates, a Point-of-Use System may be the best choice for you.

Water Softeners

Water softeners use salt to help remove the hardness from the water.  water with zero hardness will be described as soft for some, for others this is slimy.  Water is considered hard at 3.5 grains per gallon of hardness, Chicago water is 7 gpg and even harder the further you get from Chicago.  That being said almost everybody can benifit from a water softener.  Below are several reasons:

In the Bathroom: 

Soap and shampoo will lather better. Hair and skin will feel noticeably cleaner, softer and not as dry. No soap scum or mineral deposits to clean off sinks, showers, tubs or toilets.

 

In the Laundry:  

Clothes will be softer, cleaner, whiter and brighter. Plus they will last longer. Using soft water increases the life of clothing, towels and linens up to 33%. Without hard water service issues, washing machines last longer, too.

 

In the Kitchen:

Dishes will clean more easily, and be spot free, without the film glasses get when etched by mineral-laden water.

 

Throughout the House:  Water-using appliances will last longer and run better. Why? Because hot water heaters, washing machines and dishwashers using hard water can wear out 30% faster.

Iron Breaker III
Chemical Free!

Well water and even city water can be full of iron.  You more than likely are aware due to the staining in the toilet and shower.  It is possible the well just needs to be chlorinated, this is something well owners should be doing once a year anyway.  We will cover how to shock a well in the FAQ page.  Iron in the water it can be seen or smelled (rotten eggs, sulfur) or both.  The Iron Breaker will remove the iron and the smell.  Best of all it uses air to regenerate.  Maintenance free!

In the Bathroom:

No more iron stains or rotten egg odor. Soap and shampoo will lather better. Hair and skin will feel noticeably cleaner. And when used with a water softener, your iron free, odor free water will be soap scum free, without mineral deposits to clean off sinks, showers, tubs and toilets.

 

In the Laundry:

Without iron or H₂S in the water, clothes will be whiter and brighter. Plus, they will last longer. Add a water softener and increase the life of clothing, towels and linens by up to 33% and add even longer service life to your appliances.

 

In the Kitchen:

No iron stains on the sink, no objectionable odor while running water for cooking, cleaning or drinking. Dishes will clean more easily and, by adding a water softening unit, your dishes will be spot free without the film glasses get when etched by mineral-laden water.

 

Throughout the House:

Water using appliances will last longer and run better. Why? Because hot water heaters, washing machines and dishwashers using iron laden, hard water can wear out 30% faster, while consuming more energy than an appliance using iron free, H₂S free, soft water.

Reverse Osmosis System

How effective is reverse osmosis technology?  

It is currently the most effective water filtration method available. This technology is used to produce bottled water.

 

Where can we install the system? 

Most RO systems are designed to be installed under the kitchen sink. They can also be installed in the basement if need be.

 

How long will it last?  

If it is well serviced and parts are replaced in good time then virtually forever. The typical life span of the membrane is 2-5 years (depends on the initial water quality). The filters should be replaced every 6-12 months.

Will a water softener affect the RO filter?  

A water softener will actually extend the life of the membrane. By softening the water it helps to protect the RO unit.
