Almost 85% of the United States lives with what is considered “hard water,” but did you know that Indianapolis is home to what is considered EXTREMELY hard water? “Hard Water” is when water contains high levels of minerals such as calcium and magnesium.

This type of water running through your home can lead to unsightly build up on glass and faucets, a chalky film on dishes and even dry skin.

Not only is this problem visually unattractive, it can lead to more serious problems such as build up within plumbing, reduced water pressure, increased wear on appliances and even higher water bills. One of the best ways to solve this issue is by installing a water softener in your home. The typical water softener is a mechanical appliance that’s plumbed into your home’s water supply system.

How does a water softener work you may ask? As we said earlier, calcium and magnesium are the issue and they need to removed. This is done through a process called ion exchange. In simpler terms, it removes the calcium and magnesium and replaces them with sodium (salt). This process produces soft water.
