Like most of Arizona, Marana’s groundwater supply is hard water. From tap water having an unusual taste to sinks and tubs having stains to corroded and leaking pipes, the side effects of hard water are often felt across the entire home. However, you can use water-quality solutions like conditioners and softeners to deal with the side effects.

These solutions ensure you can drink water straight from the tap as they improve its taste. They also help protect your plumbing system by reducing the harmful effects of mineral buildups in hard water. At Curtis Plumbing, we are experts at providing water quality solutions for your home, including installation and maintenance services.

Understanding Hard Water in Marana

Hand water refers to water with high amounts of minerals, especially calcium and magnesium. One of the issues with hard water is that these minerals often damage water-conducting and storing vessels, including pipes and tanks. You can identify hard water by its metallic, dry taste. It is also not crystal clear in a drinking glass.

Hard water also doesn’t lather easily and you may need to use more soap when cleaning dishes, doing laundry, or bathing. The calcium in hard water also combines with soap chemicals to form ‘soap scum’ that can often clog drains. Hard water also leaves your bathtubs and sinks with scum rings.

Hard water is harmful to the plumbing system and related household appliances as it often erodes their metallic components and reduces their efficiency. Besides plumbing problems like pipes leaks due to corrosion, hard water may be responsible for the inefficiency of your coffee maker. Essentially, hard water can disrupt your daily life.

Water Softeners vs. Water Conditioners

Water conditioners and water softeners are some of the water treatment solutions that we offer to our customers. Even though some people use the two terms interchangeably, water softeners and water conditioners are two distinct water treatment methods.

Water softeners deal with the issue of water hardness by removing minerals like calcium and magnesium. The technique primarily replaces these minerals with sodium or potassium. Water conditioners do more than reduce water hardness as they also deal with other problems like sediment, bad odors, and chlorine.

The water conditioner technique uses technology, including electronic descalers to alter the mineral structure in hard water without adding salt. While the water remains ‘hard’ it is without the minerals that make it stick to pipes and household appliances.

The differences between these two water treatment solutions often leave homeowners confused about the best option for their Marana water quality problems. At Curtis Plumbing, we tailor our solutions to your unique needs. Our specialists will advise you on the perfect solution for your water quality issue.

What are the Benefits of Installing These Water Treatment Systems?

  1. They protect your Plumbing and Household Appliances. Water conditioners and softeners help reduce scale buildup protecting your plumbing system from pipe corrosion. They also help extend the lifespan of your appliances by keeping them descaled.
  2. Improve water quality. The solutions make the water softer hence enhancing its taste, reducing soap scum, and leaving skin and hair feeling softer.
  3. Energy Efficiency: With descaling and reduced corrosion, appliances like water heaters and coffee makers consume less energy.
