Water Conditioners / Softeners in Butler County, PA

Hard water is one of the biggest threats to your plumbing system in Butler County. You may have heard the term before, but it’s not too complicated. “Hard water” is simply defined as water with high concentrations of magnesium, calcium, and other minerals that are not easily dissolved in water. These minerals end up creating scale—a hard, chalky substance—that can wreak havoc on your plumbing. Fortunately, installing a water treatment system can improve the lifespan of your plumbing, as well as get rid of several of the annoying side effects of hard water.

Kennihan Plumbing & Heating, Inc. has a team of master plumbers with over 75 years of combined experience. They’re capable of installing Krystal Clear and Water Pro water purification systems—brands that we consider to be the best in whole house water softening. We’re dedicated to keeping your home safe, healthy, comfortable, and energy efficient—water softening is just one way to fulfill that goal.

Signs That Your Home Needs a Water Softening System

Many people live with the side effects of hard water without even questioning it, assuming that it’s just something in the water they can’t change. Some of those signs are obvious, while others might be a little subtler. If you’ve ever encountered any of the following, you could benefit from a water softener:

  • Soap scum on your bathtub, dishes, and utensils.
  • White or yellow residue around your sinks and drains.
  • Your hair feels dull after a shower.
  • Clogged showerhead.

If these things are happening outside of your plumbing system, just imagine the effect it’s having inside your plumbing system. Get in touch with us to set up a water testing appointment so we can address your hard water as soon as possible.

How Does a Water Softener Fix Things?

To put an end to those annoyances—and to extend the life of your plumbing system—you can depend on a water softener installation from Kennihan Plumbing & Heating, Inc.. A water softener consists of a tank filled with small, polystyrene beads. When the hard water passes through the beads, the offending minerals—the calcium and magnesium—stick to the beads. The remaining water flows through the tank and into your home. Meanwhile, a brine tank douses the beads to remove the mineral deposits.

If you’ve been struggling with the signs of hard water up to this point, you’ll quickly see just how dramatic a difference softened water can make. Your faucets will no longer be in danger of forming limescale clogs, and your drinking and cleaning water will improve.
