If you have hard water, you probably are already thinking about a water softener system for your home. Soft water is good for you and good for your plumbing and appliances. Hard water takes a toll on your skin and hair as well as the fixtures in your home. As wonderful as a water softener can be, remember that someone is going to have to maintain the system.
If you are prepared to do considerable maintenance and cleaning, you may choose one of the less costly models. Automatic systems cost more, but they do some of their own cleaning, and warn you when more care is needed. But the easiest system of all to maintain is the professionally installed and maintained system. Call your local plumbing and water treatment professional. They will advise you on your needs and install the perfect system for your home and family. Your water treatment specialist can also do the periodic maintenance that is required to keep your water softener system doing its job.
