In my line of work, I go to more than my fair share of industry conferences to keep up with all the latest technology used in residential plumbing projects. These trips often take me to places like the Midwest or even all the way out to the East Coast. More times than not, the folks in the places where I go have never been to Sacramento, so they a lot of questions about what it’s like to live here. I tell them that the best way to describe life in Sacramento is easy.
It’s easy to get around here because we don’t have some of the big struggles with traffic that other cities our size do. It’s also easy to eat well because being an agricultural hub gives us a ton of fantastically fresh farm-to-fork restaurants in our rapidly revitalizing downtown. And it’s easy to enjoy the outdoors because of our Mediterranean climate.
But then, because it is a conference for professional residential plumbers and all, I also feel obligated to let them know that it’s not all sun and flowers here. In fact, we actually have hard water—but as long as you know all there is to know about water softener installation in Sacramento, it’s not really that big of a deal.
So that’s what I’d like to talk about here today. Frequently asked questions include: What do water softeners do? What are the benefits of having a water softener installed in my Sacramento home? And, what is a rough estimate of how much a whole home water softener costs? These are all pretty standard questions, and if you’re thinking about nixing your hard water situation, you should know the answers. That’s why your local plumbing pro is here to help!
Water Softener Installation in Sacramento, CA: Why It Matters
We’ve talked in the past about whether or not Sacramento has hard water, so you’re probably well aware that it does. I won’t belabor this section, but it is worth revisiting to understand why it’s important to know what a water softener does. And the first step to understanding that is to know all about the problems associated with having hard water.
Hard water tends to leave little spots on your glasses and plates, which makes it easy to tell if you have it. If that was all it did, though, it really wouldn’t matter much because those little spots are basically harmless.
…hard water circulating for years through your pipes can start to cause problems for your plumbing and sewer system…
However, hard water circulating for years through your pipes can start to cause problems for your plumbing and sewer system, which is part of the reason why I’ve suggested getting a home plumbing inspection in the past. Any plumber worth his or her salt will be able to tell you if you have hard water—and suggest solutions right then and there. Your best bet is to look into water softener installation in Sacramento, which an experienced plumbing company like Bell Brothers can make very easy to do!
The Benefits of Water Softener Installation in Sacramento Area Homes
The best way to talk about the benefits of water softener installation in Sacramento is to discuss the specific problems that can arise when hard water goes unchecked. Here’s a quick rundown of the problems that stem from hard water that is left untreated:
- Ruined appliances: Things like water filters and coffee makers will take the hardest beating from unchecked hard water. Coffee makers are especially vulnerable to damage—and it can happen much more quickly than you’d expect.
- Skin and hair: Okay, this one may not have all that much to do with your plumbing, but it’s still worth knowing about. My wife has told me time and time again that living with hard water is also bad for your hair and skin.
- Pipe scaling: When hard water coats the interior of the pipes in your home, it’s called pipe scaling. Over time, this kind of build-up will create a reduction in water flow that can eventually severely damage your home’s plumbing system.
With all that in mind, I should mention once more that a filtration system installed by a professional plumber like the pros at Bell Brothers is a worthwhile, and money saving, investment.
