Consult With Our Manchester Water Softening Experts
If you are experiencing recurring plumbing problems, it may be caused by poor water quality. Abrasive minerals in your water supply can cause scaling in your plumbing lines and water appliances, which can then lead to blocked water lines, low water pressure, and water heater issues.
Contact our experts to have your plumbing problem inspected. We will determine if hard water is the source of your plumbing issue. If water softening is recommended, we will review your options and discuss the water softener installation process with you.
Water Softeners vs. Water Conditioners
If you have been researching water softeners in preparation for a new installation, you may have come across discussions comparing water softeners and water conditioners. Both treatment systems are designed to reduce the effects of hard water. However, only water softeners are the “true” solution to eliminating the minerals in hard water.
Water softeners feature salt-based technology that is used to completely remove calcium and magnesium ions from your water supply, leaving you with silky and smooth-feeling water. Water softeners also help eliminate scaling in your plumbing lines, fixtures, and appliances.
Water conditioners, on the other hand, use a different approach to treating hard water. They will not completely eliminate the abrasive minerals from your water supply but rather alter or condition it to produce a less harsh effect. Minor scaling can still occur, as a result. However, since water conditioners feature salt-free technology, they are easier to maintain, making them a popular choice for many homeowners.
Whether you choose to install a water softener or a water conditioner, our experts will make sure your new water treatment system is set up safely and efficiently.
Is Your Manchester Home Pre-Plumbed for Water Softener Installation?
If you live in a newer home, it may already have a water softener loop installed. This makes it much easier to set up your new water softening equipment.
Older homes likely won’t be pre-plumbed to accommodate a water softener. In this case, we will need to install additional piping and bypass valves to ensure a successful water softener installation.
Whether your home is already pre-plumbed with a water softener loop, or you require additional upgrades to your plumbing system, our team will make sure your new water softener is installed safely and accurately.
