Adding a water softener system to your home has many benefits. You will experience reduced water hardness, less pipe build-up, shinier hair, softer skin, steady water pressure, and even less wear and tear on your appliances. There will be no extra water or detergent wasted on laundry and dishes.

At Hydrology we offer whole house water filter systems, which not only soften your water but also filter out other harmful contaminants like chlorine and chloramines. Call us today for a free water evaluation!

No, there’s no such thing as a salt-free water softener. Removing hardness from the water always requires salt.

Contact Hydrology to learn more about the benefits of a whole house water softener and find the product that works best for you and your home. We look forward to hearing from you!

The WQA (Water Quality Association) defines a water softener as a device, product, or equipment that reduces the presence of water hardness to less than 1 grain per gallon expressed as calcium carbonate (CaCO3) equivalent via chemical, physical or other means. In other words, a proper water softener removes enough hardness in minerals so that the concentration is less than the standard unit of measurement.

According to the EPA, only 90% of public water systems meet its standards, so installing a filter will ensure your water’s safety. Contact us today if you’re looking for a whole house water filter system!

One of the most common water problems in a home is hard water. This can cause your glasses and dishes to have spots, cause a buildup of soap scum and scale, and cause your clothes to dull when doing laundry. The typical cause of hard water is dissolved magnesium and calcium minerals in the water supply.

Levels of hardness are described as follows:

  • Soft Water: Less than 1 GPG
  • Slightly Hard Water: Between 1 and 3.5 GPG
  • Moderately Hard Water: Between 3.5 and 7 GPG
  • Hard Water: Between 7 and 10.5 GPG
  • Very Hard Water: More than 10.5 GPG
