Water Softner Repair and Installation

From Bill Fenwick Plumbing in Jacksonville, FL

Countless homes throughout the Jacksonville area have hard water – in fact, according to a U.S. Geological Survey, nearly 90 percent of all homes across the country have hard water. So what exactly is hard water? Hard water is water that has a high mineral content, particularly calcium or magnesium.

According to plumbing experts, hard water is generally not harmful and can be easily eliminated through efficient water softening systems; however, high mineral counts can cause drinking water to have an unpleasant taste, increase the presence of hard to clean soap scum on showers and sinks, and have an undesirable drying effect on hair and skin. Additionally, without water softeners hard water can clog pipes due to “scaling” that forms from the calcium and magnesium deposits. Those clogged pipes will result in your water heater working less efficiently and in a loss of water pressure. Not only will this dramatically increase your energy bills, hard water can damage household appliances like your washing machine or dishwasher over time.

However, because water softener systems remove dissolved calcium and magnesium from your water, installing a new water softener or repairing an improperly functioning water softener will save you money in the long run – and that’s where we can help. Bill Fenwick’s Plumbing has been repairing and installing water softeners for more than 41 years. Not only are our plumbing professionals equipped to either fix your existing water softener or install a new, quality unit at an affordable price, we will test your water free of charge to determine its mineral content in order to ensure the proper next steps are taken.

With a quality water softener system installed you will benefit from:

  • Less soap consumption as detergents, soaps, and other cleaning agents will lather better in softer water.
  • Longer-lasting appliances because calcium deposits left behind by hard water on appliances such as washing machines, dishwashers, water heaters, etc. will cause them to operate less efficiently and need repair more often.
  • Lower utility bills because with better working appliances energy usage decreases.
  • Longer wear out of clothing and other household fabrics as excess minerals cause your clothing to require more frequent washing.
  • Cleaner glassware because with water softeners you will have less water spots on glasses, windows, etc.
