Here in Minnesota, hard water is a common home problem. The calcium and magnesium in your water can build up on the insides of your pipes, causing damage to your home plumbing. Fortunately, there is an easy way to soften and condition your water to prevent damage and improve the water quality in your home.
What is Hard Water?
Water that contains dissolved minerals is considered “hard water.” The more minerals that are dissolved in the water, the harder the water is. Generally speaking, hard water contains calcium and magnesium. Unfortunately, in high quantities, these minerals can damage your home plumbing.

If you are struggling with keeping your plumbing system in good shape due to the water hardness around your home, you may be in need of a water softener. Here are a few of the benefits a water softener can offer your home:
