When we talk to you, our neighbors, we get asked so many questions about water, water softeners and different systems. So we wanted to put something together to try to help you understand two of our products that we find ourselves recommending most of our neighbors.
Now, we all know that a water softener is pretty much a necessity in Greater San Antonio. But did you know that depending on the size of your home, how much water you use, and where your water comes from are all big factors in WHICH system you may need? It's true.
If you're lucky enough to take advantage of that Hill Country living then you will need one type of softener made specifically for well water, and maybe even a filtration system to help get rid of harmful bacteria and purify your water for cooking and drinking.
CareSoft Elite RC Water Softener
Our Caresoft Elite RC is definitely our most popular water softener unit. This is primarily due to the capacity of the unit and it offers double the efficiency! This system is perfect for homes that are serviced by SAWS or other municipal water source. Since SAWS and other municipalities are responsible for ensuring that your water is safe to drink, they also add things like chlorine to your water to do so. When your water gets to your home, it is safe to drink and you no longer need the chlorine or other disinfectant that may be added. This system removes the chlorine and other additives for you.
Now, it's also important to know about the things that SAWS does not remove from your water. Minerals like calcium and magnesium are left in your water. These minerals cause hard water build up. This is the white or red residue that you may see on your faucets and/or showers. Our CareSoft Elite RC also removes these minerals that could cause damage to your homes plumbing and appliances. Here is a short video on how the CareSoft Elite RC works.
Pioneer Certified Whole Home Filter
Now you have your softener but you want add that extra level of purity to your water. The BEST system for this is our Pioneer Whole Home Water Filter. This system is nothing short of amazing. We all know that you do need some important minerals to sustain and improve your quality of life, but the level of those minerals is a delicate balance. You need calcium and magnesium in your diet, just to keep you healthy and balances. However, too much of anything is a bad thing and what you don't need lead. In some older homes and older cities, lead pipes are still a thing. This system removes literally anything and everything that could be harmful to you and your family. There are also other chemicals that are starting to appear in water that were never there before. These things are called PFOA's (Perfluorooctanoic Acid) and PFO's (Perfluorooctane Sulfonic Acid). Anything with the word "acid" at the end of it can't be good for you to consume. This system removes all of those as well as chlorine, chloramine and other harmful water contaminants. You will taste the difference in your water, coffee and tea immediately.
