Water Softeners Service

If hard water is wreaking havoc on your home, contact us today and ask the experts at Honesty Services about installing a new water softener. Our water softener repair and installation services protect your home against hard water damage.

Water is classified as being “hard” when it contains and abundance of minerals such as calcium and magnesium. It’s common in residential areas that use well systems instead of municipal water. Hard water has many negative effects on your home. Honesty Services works to eliminate these negative effects with professional commercial and residential water softener installation and water softener repair services.

How Does a Water Softener Work?

For homeowners in the Carolinas, water softener technology is a much-needed method to remove the negative effects of hard water from the home. These units consist of a separate tank filled with specialized salts. As water passes through the salt, the sodium ions bind to the magnesium and calcium in the water, neutralizing it in the process. When the water leaves the tank, it’s left clean, fresh and free of harmful minerals.

What Are the Signs that You Need a Water Softener?

When it comes to installing a new water softener, Carolina homeowners and commercial building owners should look for the following problems in their home:

  • Scale buildup on your fixtures, water heater or in your pipes.
