Reliable Water Softener Installation Services

A water softener is a simple device, installed by Mallick Plumbing & Heating, Inc. at the apex of the water line at to your home. It scrubs the water clean of mineral deposits through a small tank filled with polystyrene beads that perform an ion exchange on the minerals. As a result, your water tastes much cleaner than it might otherwise.

You can see the difference by filling an ice cube tray with water from your faucet, then filling a second one with bottled water from the store. The bottled water will be much clearer than the one from the faucet. The same principle applies to your faucet heads, which will be free of that odd white build–up, and your laundry, which will help your clothes feel softer and retain their colors longer.

What Is Hard Water?

Hard water is simply water with a high mineral content, usually calcium or magnesium, which seeps into our drinking water from time to time. If you notice that you have a hard time working up soap lather in your water, or if there are visible films left on shower and sink surfaces, then your home probably has hard water. The good news is that you can drink it safely, since the body can absorb those minerals without ill effect, however you may notice that strange metallic taste in your drinking water.

Is Hard Water Bad?

While hard water may not be harmful to your health, it does pose a threat in how it affects plumbing, appliances, and fixtures. For example, you may notice crusty white buildup on your faucets and fixtures. Showers can feel harsher and using hard water in your laundry system will cause your colors to fade and your clothes to wear out faster than they should. It may not be dangerous, but hard water is no friend to your household. That's why you may need to consider a water softener installation in Gaithersburg

Other Ways It Affects Your Home:

  • Hard water leaves calcium deposits inside pipes, and over time these deposits can build-up to the point where water pressure increases because of the decrease of volume in the pipes. High water pressure damages plumbing and creates leaks.
  • The drop in volume inside pipes makes it easier for clogs to start. 
  • The minerals in hard water can cause major damage to fixtures attached to the plumbing because of deposits.
  • The water heater is in the most danger since the temperature inside the water tank will cause the minerals in the water to turn into scale along the tank wall. Scale build-up can cause overheating and other damage to the water heater.
