At any given moment, hardness minerals (such as calcium and magnesium) may be slowly building up in your home on everything your water touches.
This includes your water heater, your dishwasher, your faucets, and even your skin…
It doesn’t matter if your water is from a well, or from the city supply, most homes in the US have hard water.
Few people know, but you can only remove hardness minerals from your water through ion exchange, which is what a water softener does.
Water filters are built to remove other contaminants, but not hardness minerals…
A Pentair Water Softener softens all the water coming into your home before it has a chance to enter your appliances.

How do you know if you have hard water?
This is a washing machine heating element that’s been exposed to hard water
Here are some telltale signs…
- Your skin is dry and itchy and your hair is dull
- Your drinking glasses & stemware come out of the dishwasher with spots
- Your faucets and fixtures have a crust that’s hard to remove
- Your water heater takes forever to heat up, or you’ve prematurely had to replace or repair it
- Your whites are more like 50 shades of gray and your brights have lost their luster
What are the Benefits of Soft Water?
Softer Skin & Hair
Hard water minerals bond with skin and hair leaving a nasty film. Kind of like that limescale on your faucet! A Pentair water softener removes hardness minerals naturally so you can stop spending money on lotions & skincare products as your body becomes free of buildup!
Extend Appliance Life
Dishwashers, washing machines, water heaters (tankless, electric, & gas), ice makers, boiler systems, & humidifiers all suffer when your water contains hardness minerals. Their useful life may be greatly reduced because they are not designed to endure hard water.
It Can Pay for Itself
You can save up to 75% on cleaning products, as they are more effective and less are needed. You can also save up to 40% on energy costs related to your water-using appliances, and plus they last longer. Its harder to estimate the amount of savings you get when you no longer have to waste time scrubbing that scale off your shower doors, faucets, fixtures, dishes, & glassware.

"Dustin installed our Pentair whole-house water filter yesterday. He very patiently answered all our questions and laid to rest any qualms we had about doing a whole-house filter. He was so patient and pain-taking during the installation process. He also did some maintenance on the Fleck water softener during all this. Both Richie and Dustin are the best at what they do. We highly recommend Aquatech of Idaho!"

"They are the best place I have ever had to deal with. It's such a relief to have someone that knows what they are doing. They are always fair when I need filters changed or salt delivered or service work done. Dean is such a nice guy!"

"Dustin did an excellent job of giving my water softener a thorough checkup! He is extremely knowledgeable and went straight to work with no hesitation or time wasted. Not only did he improve the function of our water softener, but he also discovered another water leak elsewhere and fixed it in short order. After completing the work, Dustin gave us tips on how to maintain other aspects of our system such as the RO water filter under the sink. He kept our best interest in mind with every action and recommendation he made. Bottom, he went way over and above what we hoped for. Can't recommend him highly enough!"

How do I choose a water softener?
Softeners aren’t one size fits all. That’s where we can start to help you. Based on the size of your household and your typical water usage, we can determine which softener size you’ll need.
Sizing is an important step, as it ensures there is enough capacity to handle your needs and not so much capacity that it creates waste.
From there, you can choose additional features to make your life easier or to meet additional water treatment needs based on the results of your water test.
How much does a water softener cost?
This will depend on the size, features, and your particular installation. The best way to get pricing is to call so that you can get it properly sized.
Pricing includes the new equipment, the installation and proper setup, so that it meets your expectations.
A water softener can potentially pay for itself over time with savings on detergents, soaps, and cleaning supplies, reductions in energy usage and the extended life of your water-using appliances. Water heaters tend to suffer the most in hard water, and they are expensive to replace.
Why not just buy a softener from a big box store or online retailer?
Big box stores sell softeners that are made with lower quality parts to reduce the price, even if you get name brand.
You will still have to hire a local plumber to do the install, unless you are quite knowledgeable in plumbing.
It can be difficult to get any warranty work done from a big box store, and often there is no warranty from online retailers.
In either case, you will usually just get referred to a local plumber who may not necessarily have knowledge of your specific equipment.
So essentially you are on your own once it reaches your house.
What are the next steps?
First, you can send us your contact info through one of the forms on this page, or give us a call directly.
Next, and not to be skipped, is the all-important water test. We test your water (free of charge), if everything looks good, we can leave it at that.
Otherwise, if the test reveals a problem or if you’re concerned about your water, we ask you a few questions and answer yours to help you get what you expect from your water.
If you’re satisfied with our recommendations, we schedule a convenient time to come out and install & set up your new water softening equipment.
What is covered by the Warranty?
This depends on the model and features you get.
To keep it simple, it’s best just to ask us when you are choosing your softener.
How do I maintain my softener?
The wonderful benefit of working with a reputable local water treatment company is that we’re here to help you maintain your system for years to come.
You can schedule a salt delivery with us as well as routine maintenance and filter changes if and when necessary. We’ll even deliver the salt and fill your softener for you.
The frequency of salt refill really depends on your household’s water usage and the efficiency of the softener (Pentair water softeners are extremely efficient). In an average household, a softener can go 2 to 4 months on a refill.
What happens if I need help with my softener?
Just give us a call, our direct number is here on this page and most of the pages of our site. You will reach a local technician who can answer your questions, or you will be able to schedule us to come out and help.
Why should I choose to work with you?
Because we care. Try and get that from an online retailer or a big box store.
We would be proud to be your trusted advisor and go-to for your water treatment needs, to keep you and your family healthy and happy.
