Water Softeners in Forsyth County, GA
At DC Cheek Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, one of our highest priorities and core values is protecting the health and safety of our customers. That means not only ensuring that your drinking and potable water is safe to drink and use, but that it’s not having a negative impact on your quality of life, either.
Many homes in Johns Creek, GA and along the North 400 Corridor suffer from a problem known as hard water—water with a buildup of the minerals calcium and magnesium. This is not harmful to ingest, however it is not good for your plumbing system and impacts a number of household items as a result. The solution to this is the installation of a water softener system. DC Cheek Heating, Cooling & Plumbing offers this, and many other water treatment services in the North Metro area.
Contact our team to learn more about hard water and its implications—and get it “Fixed, At the Speed of Life” with a professionally installed water softener.
The Problem With Hard Water
Hard water isn’t as detrimental a problem as something like bacterial contamination. Hard water isn’t actually inherently dangerous. But, it can negatively impact your quality of life, and that makes it worth talking about. It makes your drinking water taste funny, makes showers and baths feel less refreshing, and wears out and fades clothes in the washer faster.
Maybe the biggest issue with hard water here in Johns Creek, GA is the crusty white deposits it leaves behind in your plumbing and faucets. You’ve probably even seen signs of hard water, without even understanding what it is. Sure, you can find some type of cleanser to remove buildup from faucet heads and drain openings, but this doesn’t solve the problem at its core.
A Water Softener to the Rescue!
A whole-house water softener may be just what you need to improve comfort and the quality of life in your Johns Creek home. It’s a relatively simple device that scrubs the water clean of mineral deposits through a small tank filled with polystyrene beads. These beads perform an ion exchange on the minerals, and as a result, your water tastes much cleaner than it might have otherwise.
You can usually tell the difference between hard water and regular water by filling an ice cube tray from your faucet, then filling a second one with bottled water from the store. The bottled water will be much clearer than the one from the faucet. This same principle also applies to your faucet heads, which will be free of that gross white build-up, and your laundry, which will help your clothes feel softer and retain their colors better.
For Your Water Softener Needs, Contact Our Team!
Water softeners are generally low-maintenance devices, so long as they get cleaned on a routine basis. They do still require professional installation, ensuring they don’t have any problems right from the start. You’ll also want to schedule plumbing maintenance, where we’ll inspect your entire system, including any water treatment products you have installed.
We’re committed to your 100% satisfaction, which is why we offer such a wide range of water treatment options. A water softener may be just what you need, while you may also want to consider a water filtration system for comprehensive water treatment care.
