Do You Really Need a Water Softener?

July 31st, 2017

water-softener-do-you-needToday, most municipal water supplies have a good amount of filtration and conditioning they go through before reaching your faucets, and the Tucson area is no exception. If you use ground water instead, you likely have a water treatment system on site, too. But something many people don’t realize is missing in all of this when they hear about water treatment system installation in Tucson, AZ, is protection from hard water.

This is the name for water that has a high concentration of minerals in it—namely calcium and magnesium. No, these minerals are not harmful to ingest, to get that out of the way. However, they can do a world of damage to your plumbing system, and therefore your quality of life. Hard water should be taken care of with a professionally installed water softener, which can treat the water before it has a chance to negatively affect your pipes.
