Our new customers in Pikeroad, Alabama (east of Montgomery) wanted a water softener for their new home but were concerned about the installation of it because their house is built on a slab. Fortunately we have installed hundreds of whole house water systems in slab homes throughout Alabama. We installed the softener inside an insulated box on the outside of the home. It's protected from cold weather and isn't an eyesore from street. Now Gloria & her husband will no longer have the hard water spots, dry skin, or any of the other household problems associated with Alabama's hard water.
