Does the water in your home have a bad taste? Maybe you live in area where your water supply is filled with minerals? You could be dealing with hard water. While not harmful to your health, the effects of hard water can wreak havoc on your plumbing and household. It can also have a bad taste and smell. Hard water contains a high amount of minerals that can leave behind a plaque-like residue. This residue can stain faucets, dishes, tubs – and adversely affect skin, hair and clothing. In fact, hard water can impact everything in your home that comes into contact with water. Sometimes your drinking water simply has a bad taste due to chlorine or other chemicals that are in your city’s water supply. Fortunately, there are a variety of solutions that can help completely remove the contaminants that cause hard water or an unpleasant taste (sometimes both). The professionals at Master Services can help assess your hard water problem and offer the ideal water softener products for your home.
Water filters can help with:
The plumbing experts at Master Services have been helping our Lake Geneva neighbors with water filter solutions for over 20 years. The water filter units that we carry are available in a variety of different design and size options. Our brand name filters include point of use (POU) and whole house designs. POU filters are installed at individual fixtures and provide clean water for one water source. Whole house filters are connected to your main water source and provide clean water to the entire home. In addition to water filters, we also carry convenient hybrid designs that both filter and soften the water; ensuring both clean tasting and mineral-free water.
There are basically four different types of water softeners on the market. Salt-free, reverse osmosis, ion exchange and magnetic. The most popular design is a salt-free unit, which relies on a filter (no salt or chemicals) to clean the water. These designs work well, but they are not recommended for homes that are dealing with extreme hard water issues. Reverse osmosis units use a semi-permeable membrane to remove impurities in the water. This type of design removes up to 98% of impurities – and is ideal for the household who wants their tap water both delicious and mineral-free. An ion exchange design literally exchanges the ions in the water with potassium or sodium ions. This type of design removes the minerals that cause hard water and will help remove the detrimental impact on fixtures and appliances. However, the high sodium levels involved make it impractical for drinking water. Magnetic softeners position magnetics in or around water pipes to alter the water’s chemical makeup. But the water will revert back to its original hardness within 48 hours after passing through the magnetic field. Let the experienced plumbers at Mater Services recommend the ideal type of water softener for your Lake Geneva home.
