Our beautiful Temecula Valley is an area with hard water that can cause so many problems for homeowners. Water is called “hard” when it has a high concentration of minerals, including calcium and magnesium. It can clog pipes, make your soap less effective, and dry out your skin and hair. Although these minerals do not present a health problem for those who drink the water or use it for cooking, these minerals tend to build up it your pipes and inside appliances, especially those that use hot water. Removing the minerals from your household water will save you time, energy and money.
Traditionally, hard water has been treated with a salt based system that uses osmosis to remove the minerals in your water. It is a very effective method but it is not without its faults. Flushing salty water into your community’s sewer system or into your septic tank also comes with a host of problems. Not only does it inhibit the growth of the bacteria that break down human waste, but if you have a septic tank, the continuous influx of salt water can poison the ground surrounding it.
A better choice is a Salt-Free Water Softening System, a technology that allows the healthy minerals to remain in the water but doesn’t allow them to attach or stick to each other and form scale. In effect, the minerals are dissolved into your water. The formula they use to dissolve the minerals is FDA approved and does not have any harmful side effects. This type of system can also do something that salt based water softening systems cannot. It will remove any scale that is already in your pipes of appliances. This means that regular use of the water softening system will actually improve and extend the life of your existing plumbing and appliances. No more lugging bags of salt, cheaper to run and will not require you to do any rearranging of your home’s plumbing.
