The Benefits Of Using A Water Softening System

Water softener Houston, TX

When water first falls as rain, it’s considered to be “soft” water because it hasn’t yet picked up any mineral ions. In most parts of the country, as this water flows through the ground, it picks up ions of the minerals’ calcium and magnesium. At this point, the water is “hard.” Once this hard water makes its way into your home’s plumbing, it can have several negative effects. However, if you have a water softening system installed, the hard water will pass through a special resin that replaces the calcium and magnesium ions with less harmful ones. Treating your water with this softening process can improve the health of your plumbing, appliances, dishes, clothing, and even your hair and skin.

Healthier Plumbing And Appliances

When hard water passes through your pipes and is used by your appliances, it leaves behind a residue known as scale. In your plumbing, this scale buildup will gradually restrict the amount of space for water to pass through. This forces the pump pressure to increase so that it can push hot or cold water through, which puts harmful strain on your plumbing system. Additionally, this mineral-filled water is more damaging to your appliances, such as your dishwasher and clothes washing machine. With a water softening system, you’ll save money and keep your piping and appliances healthier.

Healthier Skin And Hair

When you wash your hair and skin with hard water, the minerals cause much of your natural oil to be removed. This results in your skin being dry and itchy, and it can cause your hair to become frizzy and brittle. Hard water also isn’t as soluble when mixed with soap, so using it prevents you from getting a deep lather. As a result, you don’t achieve as deep of a clean. Alternatively, bathing with softened water will leave your skin and hair soft, clean, and healthy.

Roberto with Red One plumbing was fantastic! He was very personable and professional. You can tell he really knew his job well and he takes great pride in the quality of his work. He hooked up our standby generator and was very informative on the whole process. He made sure we knew what to expect and what each step entailed. If I need a plumber again in the future, he will be my go to guy. Highly recommended.

I'm so glad we reached out to Red One Plumbing. We were able to get a same-day appointment, and not only was Robert able to come sooner than expected, but he was truly professional, communicative, and service-oriented. He was very thorough in identifying our issue, and he communicated with me every step of the way. I can't recommend this business enough. They were terrific!

I had the company replaced a garbage disposal. The pricing was good. No shady haggling. The tech arrived promptly the next day and completed the job very fast. Communication with the company was good .I would use this company again for my other houses.

We had a fantastic experience with Red One. Great response times, very professional and friendly both on dispatch and on the plumber side. Robert was amazing and helped above and beyond the job description. I will absolutely be using them again! I normally DIY but they made it so easy to work with them that I think I’ll be retiring from plumbing DIY!
