Water Softeners and Tannin Filters

Do I need a water softener?

To put it bluntly, if you have hard water, you need a water softener. The vast majority of US and Canadian homes have hard water—85% is the current estimate. Hard water is caused by calcium and magnesium in the water, and some folks have much more of these minerals in their water than others.  A water softener will fix that!!

There are things to look for to see if you need a water softener. For instance, if you have scaly, white deposits in basins or on fixtures in your bath or kitchen, you need a water softener. Additionally, water spots on glasses and dishes are another sign, especially if these spots don’t seem to go away.  A water softener will eliminate these hard water spots and at the same time make your home much easier to keep clean for your family.

We feature both regular and high efficiency water softeners to make life easier for your family made by quality manufacturers like Waterite and Aquamaster.  Did I mention the FREE shipping in Canada?

Tannin filters remove discoloration in your water due to organics. These organics are often found in surface waters from lakes and rivers and are caused by rotting vegetation.  Our website features easy do it yourself installation videos and we offer advice in our blog.
