WATER
SOFTENERS

plumber in Phoenix.

WHY DO I NEED A WATER SOFTENER?

 

Water hardness is measured by GPG, grains per gallon. Sparing you a full chemistry lesson, this refers to the amount of mineral content in your water. Anything over 1 grain per gallon is considered to be hard water.

 

Our water in Phoenix, AZ typically ranges from 15-25 GPG. This means that a water softener is not only recommended, it’s necessary to ensure a properly maintained water system in your home, not to mention the health benefits for your hair and skin.

BENEFITS OF WATER SOFTENERS

SAVE MONEY ON PLUMBING FIXTURES – Water softeners make up for their overall costs over their life time and again. Without a softener, most fixtures, pipes, faucets, shower heads, etc… can become damaged and coroded by the hard water in Phoenix and need to be replaced within 5 years.

 

NO MORE WATER FILTER REPLACEMENTS - Water softeners eliminate the need for in-home water filters. Your water hardness will be reduced to zero, so no need to worry about replacing those filters every few months!

 

SAVE MONEY ON BOTTLED WATER - If you’re tired of refilling and cleaning your water filter pitcher or buying cases of bottled water, installing a reverse osmosis system could be the solution to your problem. Adding a water filtration system to your home helps to keep your home free of pesticides and contaminants.

 

EASIER TO CLEAN - If you’re tired of scrubbing caked on soapscum and residue, a water softener is a great solution. Hard water makes cleaning take longer than it should, where as water softeners not only safe you time when cleaning, but also save money on cleaning supplies. Plus, no need for those harsh chemicals that you need to cut through the gunk.

 

HEALTHIER SKIN & HAIR - No matter how much lotion or conditioner we use on our skin and hair, if you’re showering and cleaning with hard water, you’ll still notice irritation. After just a few uses with a water softener, you’ll notice softer skin and smoother hair. You don’t have to look far to find a dermatologist or hair care expert who will recommend a water softener for healthier skin and hair.

  • How often should a water heater be replaced?
    A typical water heater lasts 8-12 years. If properly maintained it can extend the life of the heater. Proper maintenance includes: Annual flushing Anode rod replacement Water Softener
  • Are water heaters hard to replace?
    Plumbing is a skilled trade, it takes many, many years to perfect the craft, ever though a great plumber makes it look easy, it can be very hard or frustrating to most homeowners.
  • Will Lowes or Home Depot install a water heater for me?
    Most big box home improvement stores do not install water heaters. They send out a contractor, like AZ Family Plumbing after you purchase from their store. It’s worth noting that AZ Family Plumbing does not purchase our water heaters from these stores. All products that come from the big box home improvement stores are “B” grade product that does not last as long as a contractor-grade water heater from a plumbing supply store. For example, a brand bought from the big box store called Rheem is made in Mexico and is assembled with cheaper parts and materials, as opposed to the brands we use, Ruud, which is made in the U.S.A. and assembled with high-quality materials that last longer.
  • How long does it take to replace a water heater?
    A professional plumber will only take about 2-4 hours. A homeowner doing it on their own could take 1-2 days.
  • Are tankless water heaters worth the money?
    Absolutely. Besides the endless hot water you get with a tankless water heater, owning a tankless water heater, it will pay for itself from the reduction of energy costs. A tank water heater will never recoup the cost that was initially spent. Tankless water heaters only consume energy when in use.
