What’s in Your Water Supply?

Does your Boerne home need a water softener?

Hard water can be tough on your plumbing. It causes mineral buildup on the inside of your pipes, water heater, and other small appliances that use water. Hard water can affect your laundry and hair. It creates a sticky scum on your fixtures and keeps soap from lathering.

Fortunately, our expert plumbers at Texas Mechanical Masters can help. We install, repair, and maintain water softener systems throughout  that eliminate calcium, magnesium, and other minerals in your water.

Texas Mechanical Masters is a trusted name for providing quality heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) and plumbing services to homes and businesses in Boerne, TX, and surrounding areas.

What Causes Hard Water?

Hard water is caused by high mineral content. It is mainly due to groundwater that flows through or over limestone. While hard water is not known as a health risk, it is definitely a nuisance.

Want to know more about the water quality in your Boerne? The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires water suppliers to issue a Consumer Confidence Report every year that spells out the levels of contaminants in your local water supply. You can find the report online at epa.gov.

Get Rid of Hard Water in Your Boerne Home 

At Texas Mechanical Masters, we find practical ways to keep you safe and comfortable. You can count on our licensed plumbers to correctly install a water softener in your home.

How does a water softener system work? It replaces calcium and magnesium ions with sodium ions. Water enters the water softener’s main tank and passes through resin beads that have absorbed sodium.

The calcium and magnesium ions in the water are positively charged and attracted to the negatively-charged resin. They cling to the beads while the softened water leaves the tank for distribution through your home’s plumbing system.

Our team will gladly show you how to clean and maintain your water softener system to enjoy the most value from it.

Advantages to using a water softener system include:

  • Appliances are less prone to limescale buildup and last longer. 
  • Glassware and dishes will look cleaner, and laundry will be brighter. 
  • Soap scum on bathroom and kitchen surfaces will disappear. 
  • Plumbing pipes in your Boerne home are less likely to rust and corrode. 
  • Your skin and hair will look better!

Our goal with every job is to create a healthy environment for yourself and your loved ones. Be sure to ask about our convenient financing options and maintenance agreements tailored to fit your budget and needs.
