Water Softener Services in Wichita
Call Our Local, Family-Owned Business Today
Water is considered “hard” when it has a high mineral content, specifically calcium and magnesium. While humans can consume hard water without any serious health risks, hard water does have an effect on your pipes and fixtures. Over time, hard water can break down the piping more quickly than softer water, leading to the need for more frequent repairs. Hard water can be unpleasant to drink and leave your glassware with unattractive spots. Sunflower Services and our Wichita plumbers can install, replace, and repair water softener systems to homes in the area.
Why Does Hard Water Matter?
Water comes directly from the ground, full of all the minerals, metals, sediment, and other materials that it encounters during this time. Water softeners offer a solution that reduces these elements to ensure the water flowing through your taps is the best it can be.
Hard Water Impacts Your Home By:
- Affecting water flavor
- Building up on clothing
- Damaging pipes and appliances
- Drying out the skin
- Leaving residue on dishes and surfaces
- Reducing energy-efficiency
What Does A Water Softener Do?
Water softeners work by first moving the hard water through specific resins. After the unwanted minerals are removed from the water, an internal solution cleans the resins and keeps the water softener working for years to come.
Water Softener Benefits Include:
- Cleaner water for for your washing machine, dish washer, and shower
- The need for fewer cleaning products
- More efficient appliances
- Energy savings as water moves seamlessly throughout your plumbing
- Repair savings as hard water can result in mineral build up which can damage your appliances and pipes
How Long Does A Water Softener Last?
A water softener can usually last for 10 to 15 years. However, regular maintenance services and repairs can help extend the lifespan of the system. If you are unsure of the state of your system, watch for these common signs that may indicate a replacement is needed.
When To Replace A Water Softener:
- If you notice changes in the color, taste, or overall quality of the water
- If you notice visible hard water spots
- If the water pressure in your home has changed
- If scale buildup and mineral deposits are forming on your faucets and plumbing fixtures
If you are experiencing any of the above problems, it may be time to invest in a new water softening system. We recommend consulting with our knowledgeable plumbing team to find the best replacement water softener for your home’s needs.
