Arizona is known for the elements and minerals contained in our natural water resources. ‘Hard Water,’ as it’s called, it tough on everything, from your skin to your hair, as well as all of the appliances and fixtures in your home.
Many Arizona homes choose to install water softeners and reverse osmosis systems to both relieve some of the beating that fixtures take from hard water, and to allow for better drinking water.
Reverse osmosis occurs when water pressure is used to push water through an extremely fine (semipermeable) membrane, which cleans the water and traps contaminates on the other side of the membrane.
This membrane is much like certain kinds of fabric which contain pores so small that they prevent water droplets from coming in, yet still allow smaller water vapor to pass through.
Let’s talk a bit about the benefits of soft water…
- Cleaner clothes: Seriously, your clothes will be cleaner. Your family might not notice, but YOU will!
- Better water pressure: When your pipes aren’t corroded with slime and sludge from hard water build up, the water pressure is a thousand times better.
- No corrosion: This one seems like a given, but when you have soft water in your Gilbert home, you have less chemicals in the water, thus less slimy build up on your faucets!
- Less fixes: Less corrosion and build up ultimately means less Gilbert plumber visits! Soft water installation might cost a bit upfront, but it will save you thousands in the long run.
