Water Softeners, Boerne TX
The water in Boerne, Fair Oaks Ranch, Leon Springs TX and the surrounding area is hard. Hard on clothing, hard on plumbing fixtures, even hard on your skin and hair. Every home would benefit from a water softener installation in Boerne TX.
Why do I need a water softener?
A water softener literally reduces the hardness of the water. A water softener system utilizes ion-exchange resin, which is regenerated with salt or with potassium, to take the water to below 1 grain of hardness per gallon.
Hard water in can dramatically increase the cost to heat water because of the scale that builds up, increasing energy use. Additionally, hard water may shorten the life of water heaters, washing machines, dishwashers, ice makers, faucets, pipes and other plumbing fixtures. Consequently, you may have to replace these items sooner than would otherwise be necessary.
Installation of a home water softener will save you money in the long run. Also, washing with soft water will use about 50% less soap, detergents, water conditioners, bleach, shampoo and conditioners, and you don’t have to use any of the caustic or acidic lime removers.
Plus, with a water softener installation by Boerne Joe Plumbing, your clothes will be brighter and whiter, not stiff, grey and dull, and will be softer to the touch. And, soft water is much easier on your skin.
The newest meter-controlled (demand) water softeners are extremely salt efficient and waste just a small amount of water each regeneration.
For those who prefer "Salt Free" water softeners, most stores that sell water softener salt also sell a water softener salt substitute called potassium chloride. The potassium chloride for your No Salt Water Softener is just as effective as regular water softener salt but adds potassium instead of sodium. The cost of potassium chloride is a little more than regular water softener salt but worth the small increase if you have concerns about residual sodium in your water.

Water Softener Installation, Boerne TX
Once it is determined which water softener system you will need, (proper sizing) we can then determine where the water softener will be installed. Typically it will be installed in your garage or a utility room. Most recently constructed homes today are pre-plumbed so that the water softener will treat all the water for fixtures & appliances inside the home and leave hard water to the outside faucets.
What one person will drink, another will not. If you have iron or odors present in your water, we may need to install an iron filtration system to work in conjunction with the water softener. You also have the options to install a Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System. This system will produce bottle quality water at your kitchen sink and to your refrigerator as well as the ice maker.
Our licensed water softener installers will take the time necessary to assure you of a proper water softener installation. This includes following all local plumbing codes and flushing the plumbing lines in well water applications that have iron, sediment or rust build-ups. The water softener installers will explain the equipment and re-test the water to insure the equipment is working properly.
