Water Softeners

Water Softening Services in Cedar Grove, NJ

Civic water systems like the one in Cedar Grove, NJ mostly look out for bacteria and other contaminants. When it comes to hard water, they are much less efficient. Hard water isn’t strictly dangerous, but it does create problems within your household plumbing system, and if left unaddressed can create significant problems with your household comfort levels. Showers feel less pleasant, laundry cycles are harder on your clothes, and even drinking and cooking carries a faint metallic taste that you could probably do without.

Enter the whole house water softener. Placed at the apex of your plumbing system where the water line connects to your household, it can filter mineral deposits out of your hard water, leaving it cleaner, tastier and better for you in numerous different ways. The experts at MarGo Plumbing Heating Cooling Inc. have the training and experience to perform all manner of water softener services, from installation to repair to maintenance and replacement.

Problems Created by Hard Water

The difficulties of hard water start with its effect on drinking and cooking. You can usually detect a faint metallic taste when you drink hard water, and while the minerals won’t harm you (calcium and magnesium in hard water are just fine as far as the human body is concerned), they can make the water – and food cooked with it – less refreshing to drink. That comes on top of issues created by hard water deposits in your plumbing: the crusty white build–up you find on your shower and faucet heads sometimes. Think of that material in your water while it washes your clothes, your dishes and even your own body in the shower, and you can begin to see the concern.

Water Softeners to the Rescue!

A water softener system installed in your Cedar Grove home by MarGo Plumbing Heating Cooling Inc. can be the solution to all of that. It contains a tank filled with small spheres made of polystyrene. As the hard water passes through the beads, the calcium and magnesium in the water stick to them, while the rest of the water moves through the tank and on into your home. A brine tank periodically soaks the beads to remove the mineral deposits when the system isn’t filtering water. As a result, the minerals vanish from the system, that crusty build–up vanishes form your faucet and shower head, and your drinking water, bathing water and cleaning water improves as a result.
