Water Softeners and Softening Systems

Suffering with Hard Water Problems?

Water softeners and water softening systems offer a … solution for the problem of hard water in New Hampshire homes. But what, exactly, is hard water, and is it really a “problem”?

Hard water is rich in natural minerals that are typically not hazardous to your health, but over time these minerals can build up deposits in your plumbing, water heaters, and other appliances. As a result, soaps may not lather as well, dishes might dry with spots, and showers or baths can leave soap scum and lime scale behind. When hard water dries on a solid surface, the minerals remain, making it a pain—and quite difficult sometimes—to remove.

Now imagine those minerals, all that lime scale, caking up in your pipes and plumbing. Not only does this weaken the flow of your water, but it will eventually destroy your systems and can be the root cause of expensive repairs.

But more serious than your pipes is the effect it can have on your baby's skin! A recent study stated that hard water can cause a multitude of skin issues for your family, and in babies and young children especially. You can read more on the subject from this article by clicking here.

Are All Water Softeners the Same?

Whole-house water softening systems vary in size and cost, and there are a number of technologies to choose from. Among those are:

  • Salt-Based Ion Exchange Softeners – Ion exchange is a process whereby hard minerals such as iron, calcium, and magnesium are substituted with salt.
  • Dual-Tank Water Softeners – Dual-tank water softeners are basically two units in one. While one system is in its regeneration cycle, the other can still be used to provide softened water to your home’s system.

  • George Craggy

    Jonathan, I wanted to drop a couple of lines to tell you how satisfied and happy that I chose Capital Well Co. for my water needs. From your lead man Steve to your drill people, your plumbing guy and your guy on the back hoe. Everyone that cast a shadow on my door threshold were polite, professional and willing to take the time to explain and answer my questions; which were many . Jon, it was my pleasure to meet you today and pleased that you came by for a follow up visit and explain how the heater works. SO...if I get a chance to tell everyone that needs a new well, I definitely will. It is apparent there is no "I" in your team . Thank you everyone.
  • Richard Meaney

    Mr. Swain, Thank you so much for the service Capital Well provided at my home today. I left a message with you at the behest of Ed Monty. I received a prompt phone call from Greg to arrange for a service call and to discuss what might need to be done. Promptly at (actually a few minutes before) the scheduled time, Bobby showed up to perform the service. Bobby was excellent at explaining the service, why some things were needed and how the well and pump worked, and answered all of my questions to my satisfaction. All in all, this was a very positive experience for us. Thanks to you and the people at Capital Well for prompt, courteous, and efficient service.
