Austin Water Softener Installation

Effective Solutions for Hard Water in the Greater Austin Area

In Austin, TX, hard water is a common challenge for both residents and businesses. It's not just about the inconvenience; hard water, rich in minerals like calcium and magnesium, can wreak havoc on your plumbing systems. It leads to limescale buildup in pipes, fixtures, and appliances, reducing water flow and hiking up energy costs. 

At Cold is on the Right Plumbing & Air, we specialize in resolving these issues efficiently. Our water softeners utilize cutting-edge ion exchange technology, effectively swapping out calcium and magnesium ions for sodium or potassium. This process prevents scale formation and ensures smooth water flow, enhancing your water quality and the overall functionality of your property.

What is Hard Water?

Utility water may not be as clean as you think. While municipal water is treated and safe for use and consumption, this treatment often falls short of comprehensive filtration. In many cases, mineral content can be left behind, where it can cause problems for your plumbing and your appliances. This condition is known as “hard water,” and is extremely common throughout the country. 

Make no mistake: hard water is not bad for you. In fact, the calcium in hard water may be a key part of your diet, particularly if you or a loved one struggles with bone or skeletal issues. However, the added mineral content in your water may be more than you would like, and that’s where a water softener can help.

How Does a Water Softener Work?

A water softener solves your hard water problem by mitigating mineral particles that are included in your water. In a water softener, water from your main water line is pumped into a filtration tank, where a filtration medium of resin beads sits. The mineral content in your water sticks to these resin beads, falling out of the water. The cleaned water is then pumped into your home for you to use and enjoy.

Many people often misunderstand water softeners, thinking that salt is what does the softening. While salt is used in the process, it is used to recharge the resin beads in your tank, rather than to do the actual softening. The water that flows into your home does not have an elevated amount of sodium in it, and the brine created during the recharge process is disposed of via your drain system.

Water goes through the softener system. The medium attracts the calcium/magnesium minerals out of the incoming water and once the medium is saturated, a regeneration cycle begins. During a regeneration cycle, the salt water attracts the minerals from the medium and rinses the system and purges the pollutants to give you a finished product. 

When to Consider a Water Softener Installation

It might be time to consider a water softener system installation if you experience:

  • Laundry blues: Clothes feeling stiff and rough after washing? Can't seem to get rid of those stubborn stains? Hard water might be the culprit.
  • Spotty dishes: Glasses and dishes looking cloudy and covered in white film? These are hard water minerals leaving their mark.
  • Skin & hair problems: Suffering from dry, itchy skin and hair that just won't cooperate? Hard water could be stripping your skin and hair of their natural moisture.
  • Energy drain: Seeing your energy bills skyrocket? Hard water can make your appliances work harder, leading to higher costs.
  • Plumbing problems: Frequent plumbing repairs? Limescale buildup from hard water can damage pipes and fixtures.

With a water softener system from Cold is on the Right Plumbing & Air, you can say goodbye to hard water problems and enjoy the many benefits of soft water.
