For some of our customers, the upfront cost of equipment can be an obstacle to getting the water treatment they need. With our financing options, you can make manageable monthly payments, while enjoying the benefits of better water. In many cases, those benefits can offset much, or all, of the cost.
The Hidden Costs of Hard Water
From your hair and skin, to your plumbing, appliances and clothing, hard water touches everyone — and almost everything — in your household. It also reaches into your wallet, increasing the amount of cleaning supplies and energy you use, and decreasing the lifespan of appliances and washable fabrics.
Hard water makes cleaners, soap and detergents less effective. Dissolved minerals prevent proper lathering, and actually cause staining. A study by the Water Quality Association showed that soft water can achieve better cleaning results with less detergent and lower water temperatures. Personal care items — lotions, soap, shampoo — also perform much better. Soft water can reduce cleaning costs by up to 50 percent.

Hard water shortens the lifespan of plumbing, fixtures and appliances. While you can see the scale build-up on taps and toilets, much of the damage is unseen: clogged pipes, scale-coated heating elements, and premature wear of sensitive internal mechanisms. Soft water greatly reduces the need for costly repairs, and can double the lifespan of expensive appliances and fixtures. In addition, soft water eliminates hard water staining and soap residue on your washables, significantly extending the life of clothing and linens.

Hard water contains dissolved rock, which accumulates on the heating elements and internal surfaces of water-using appliances. Scale build-up reduces the efficiency of these appliances. The most severe impact is on your water-heating bill. According to the American Society of Plumbing Engineers, 1/16-inch of scale can increase energy consumption by 11 percent. The Water Quality Association pegs the added cost of heating untreated water at 29 percent.
Potential savings – $60 per year
Total costs of hard water are up to $800 annually. That’s $67 each month that could be invested to minimize or eliminate the problem.
