Water Softener Installation in Paso Robles
Hard water (although not harmful to your health) can be a daily inconvenience:
Calcium and magnesium in untreated hard water contribute to these effects.
Not only is hard water an inconvenience, but it can also lead to premature deterioration of your appliances and plumbing lines. Does your coffee maker constantly need to be cleaned due to scaling? Is your water heater having problems already despite being a new installation? Hard water is likely to blame.
Rocksteady Plumbing provides professional water treatment solutions for residential and commercial properties. We help customers throughout Paso Robles and surrounding areas select and install high-quality water softeners, making sure your new system is set up to provide you with hassle-free operation for years to come.
Things to Consider Before Installing a Water Softener
Is your property pre-plumbed to accommodate a water softener? Newer constructions will often have a water softener loop in place, making installation easier and quicker. We can typically complete the job within two hours.
If your property is not fitted with a water softener loop, we will set up the necessary plumbing so your water softener can be installed. Our team will incorporate bypass valves to your existing water line and install any additional piping if necessary. We will have your water softener properly set up and running the same day.
Salt-Based vs. Salt-Free Systems
You may have come across discussions comparing salt-based and salt-free water softeners. It’s important to understand the difference between the two before selecting the right system for your home.
Salt-based systems are “true” water softeners. They have been tested and proven effective at removing abrasive minerals from hard water—making them a popular choice among customers. These systems feature two tanks, one for housing the brine solution and one for holding the resin beads used to trap hard water minerals. Traditional water softeners require a bit of maintenance, which is why some customers prefer the salt-free alternative.
Salt-free systems are actually not water softeners—they are water conditioners. Unlike traditional water softeners, water conditioners do not remove calcium and magnesium; they simply treat your water to minimize the abrasive effects of the minerals. Since water conditioners are more compact and don’t require routine cleaning, they are quite popular with households that prefer less hands-on maintenance.
