If you’re tired of having your skin feeling and looking rough from hard water or finding a white residue on your dishes, having a water softener installed could be the answer to these problems! The last thing you should have to worry about is the installation process of your water softener, but there are a few things you should know before you make your final decision about having a water softener installed.

Hard Water StainsAlways research before you purchase the water softener to be sure you completely understand what you are getting. You need to keep in mind the location of where you want your water softener installed because if this is going to be outside, you need to be sure your tanks are protected from the weather. You don’t want to have this in the direct sunlight and if you choose to use it indoors, you want to have it in a nice, cool place that won’t have a lot of temperature changes. There are tanks that have jackets that can be purchased to protect from weather and change in temperature conditions if you have to use one of those. There are two way tank systems that you can choose from as well and if you go with a two way tank system, make sure you put them directly next to each other. The tank that contains the hard water should be placed at a reasonably accessible location. Remember as well that you need your water softener installed near an electrical outlet as well as a location that has a place for draining.

Better yet, hire a licensed plumber to educate you on your options and install it for you! A plumbing contractor has the background and experience to help you find the best water softener for you and will be able to do the installation right the first time so you can enjoy your new water softener for years to come.

The benefits of installing a water softener are many. Taking that shower or nice, warm bath will be much more relaxing. Cleaning and washing dishes won’t be so hard on the hands. When you wash your clothes, they will be much softer and easier to manage. You can enjoy softer water every single day in your household once you make the decision to purchase a water softener and have it installed in your home.
