Water Softeners in Palm Springs, California

At General Air Conditioning, we want every in Palm Springs and the surrounding areas to have access to clean, safe, and delicious-tasting water straight out of the tap. While most water in the area is safe to drink, it isn’t always the highest quality. Chemicals and minerals in the water can contribute to poor-tasting water or water that causes problems in the plumbing system. One solution for bad-tasting water is water softeners. These devices can help you avoid some of the many plumbing problems that hard water can cause.

Our plumbers at General Air Conditioning install, replace, and repair water softeners. We can help you determine what type of system is right for your home so that you can begin soft water.

When Are Water Softeners Necessary?

Sometimes it can be challenging to find the right solutions for your tap water. Tap water can have harmful contaminants, minerals, or both. The perfect choice will depend on your situation.

Water softeners are ideal for homes that have too many minerals such as calcium and magnesium. They can even help to remove small amounts of iron from the water. While higher mineral levels are not considered harmful, they can cause many different problems in the home. They can cause build-up on the inside of your pipes, hard water stains on your fixtures, stains on your clothing, and dry skin and hair. If any of these problems are plaguing you or your family members, it may be time to consider a water softener installation from General Air Conditioning.

What Types of Water Softeners Are Available?

Depending on the problems that you are experiencing in your home, you may need different water softener options. Here are some of the choices you may have for your home.

Water Softeners Without Salt

You may have already heard about water softeners that use salt to remove magnesium and calcium from the water. But at General Air Conditioning, we also offer water softeners without salt. This type of device is actually a water conditioner that crystalizes minerals such as magnesium and calcium instead of removing them. This prevents them from forming scale. This type of system can be a good choice if you want to remove and prevent scale without taking out the minerals or adding salt.

Water Softener Shower Head

If you are happy with the water quality throughout the rest of your home, but you don’t like the way your skin and hair feel after a shower, you can consider a water softener shower head. This type of device is easy to install on most shower heads. When you turn on the water for your morning shower, the shower head will get to work making sure the water that comes out is perfect for the health of your skin, hair, and nails.

Water Softener Vs Reverse Osmosis: Which Do You Need?

The question of whether you need a water softener vs. a reverse osmosis system in your home is best answered after we have a clear picture of your home’s needs. While a reverse osmosis system can remove minerals, it isn’t always the most efficient way to take magnesium and calcium out of the water. Reverse osmosis systems are ideal for getting rid of other contaminants such as chlorine and may waste a lot of water if used on their own to soften the water.

Hard water softeners can be used in conjunction with a reverse osmosis system if you have problems with both contaminants and high mineral content in your water. If you are just having problems with mineral content, a water softener by itself is the better option.
