What's the Cost of a Water Softener System?
Water softener systems are designed to improve drinking water clarity and taste as well as maintain top performance out of your appliances and other plumbing systems like shower heads, faucets, and toilets.
City systems do the standard job of filtering the recycled water to meet PA-DEP and EPA regulations. Before you purchase your water softener for your home or business, determine first if hard water is really the issue. Compounds or calcium and magnesium, among other minerals make up a large amount of hard water problems.
Calcium in water is not a health hazard, in fact, some systems will put calcium back into your drinking water. What hard water does is damages your water pipes and appliances. If you have sensitive skin the pH and other minerals in hard water can irritate by clogging pores, dryness, itchiness and acne. Review below signs have hard water in your home.
What is the Cost of a Water Softener System?
The cost of a water softener system will vary based on the needs of the family or individual and size of the home. Water softener systems for smaller homes will cost roughly around $1,500 to $2,500 installed. Water softener systems for larger homes with more complex systems will cost $5,000 and higher.
You can install water softener systems on your own (DIY), however, we highly recommend not to do so. If something were to go wrong with the system, the manufacture will ask if you had a certified contractor install the system or not. If you buy it on your own - Deluxe Plumbing will not install the water softener system for you. We install a top quality product called "Puronics," and promise you the cleanest of drinking water for years to come.
I expressed some water quality concerns with Ryan as well. Again, with no added pressure, he showed some equipment systems that would enhance the water quality of my home, but strongly recommended I have the company do a water quality test
