WATER SOFTENERS & RO SYSTEMS
Calcium buildup can ruin elements in your water heater, leave residue on your dishes and even have the tendency to dry and irritate your skin. Utilizing soft water can and will save you money on costly plumbing repairs and replacement of appliances and fixtures. It will also save money by minimizing the usage of soaps for bathing, dishwashing and washing machines, as softened water promotes lather.
At Diamond Plumbing, we want to help provide better and healthier water for you and your family. From a home pre-plumbed for a water softener to the retro-fitting of a new unit, we have you covered.
Softer Smoother Skin
Soft water is exactly as it sounds. Your skin will notice a difference during and after bathing. The integrity of the water almost gives it a silky like feeling. Plus with soft water, your soaps and detergents go further due to the extra lather you gain, saving you money by reducing the amount used.
High Flow Head
Many water softeners downsize your home’s water flow at the control valve. This causes problems such as hot water taking longer to get to a fixture, or bathtubs filling slowly. Plumbing code requires a unit to match the sizing of the pipe feeding it, rather than restricting water flow.
The water softener unit bases its salt usage on water demand average. It will sense if you are using more or less water based on a small period of time.
Customized Sizing For You
We will size and quote the unit that is right for you. This is usually based on family size, number of bedrooms in your home and the water hardness in your area. We can accommodate any need. And with a five year warranty on parts and labor, you can rest easy knowing your unit will provide clean, softened water for years to come.
More Notes on Hard Water
All along the I-35 corridor and throughout the San Antonio Greater Area, water quality varies. Typically, we have some of the hardest water in the country. Hard water Calcium can show up as a white dusty film on your dishes, shower glass, in your toilet, in your sinks and on your faucets. It can damage your fixtures and appliances over time, and this includes your water heater as well. The advantage of owning and maintaining a water softener in your home can help with preserving your plumbing system and fixtures by introducing less minerals, such as calcium especially, but also some iron and even helps reduce the amount of chlorine in your water.
Chlorine can be harmful to homes built dating back to the early 2000’s where what is known as PEX plastic water distribution materials were introduced in replacement of conventional copper water piping on residential homes.
Iron can discolor and stain your plumbing fixtures and give your water almost a “metallic” kind of taste and odor. Since iron turns to rust, high Iron content in water will also present as discolored water. This is a contributing factor to turning your whites “dingy” over time in the wash.
