What exactly is “hard” water?  When water has a high amount of dissolved minerals such as calcium and magnesium, it is considered hard.   Hard water causes unwanted build up of the dissolved minerals in hot water heaters, coffee pots, tea kettles, and most importantly, your home’s pipes.  Pipes can become entirely clogged by mineral buildup.  Many people choose to install a water conditioner because hard water is unpleasant when showering  and makes clothes fade and appear dull.

Hard water also causes soap scum build up in the shower and calcium deposits in your home’s plumbing fixtures.   Many people choose to get a water softener installed to improve the quality of their town’s water.  How do water softeners work?   They use positively charged resin beads and either salt or potassium to take the minerals out of your water. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing Kansas City can help you find the right water conditioner system to correct your home’s water and meet your family’s needs.

Here is how our plumbers will correct you home’s hard water:

  1. We’ll determine the amount of water you use per day and test your water for hardness. Then, we’ll help you choose a system, and its location.
  2. We’ll turn off the water and drain your piping line and shut off the valve and power to the water heater.
  3. Our plumbers will connect new water lines using pipe wrenches.
  4. Next, our plumbers will: install a remote bypass before applying flux and connecting the fittings, remove the barbed fitting, apply Teflon tape to the threads, reattach the barb fitting and drain tube, continue the drain line until reaching the drain.
  5. Our final step will be to install the brine line, connect a drain tube, shut off the bypass, check for leaks, add salt, and complete the installation.
