  • Well water filtration system installed in Helena Alabama

    When you purchase a beautiful home on land in Helena, Alabama, the last thing you want to be concerned with is the water quality. Unfortunately, this home had an older, out-dated filtration system that needed a lot of repairs and upgrades. The new owners had trusted us with water in their previous house and they didn't want to worry about maintaining the existing filtration system. We tested the ...

  • We hate our hard water...it's already ruining our newly remodeled bathroom.

    It's a common misconception that Birmingham has soft water. We test the water every day around central Alabama, and the results vary, but the water hardness is literally off the chart in many areas. Our new customers, Mr. & Mrs. T, in Oneonta Alabama had some of the 'off the chart water'. They had recently remodeled their bathroom because the hard water buildup had become uncleanable. They loved ...

  • Water Filtration System installed in Cullman Alabama today

    Today we are installing a salt-free, whole home water filtration system with an alkaline reverse osmosis water purifier. We typically install a water softener in the Cullman area because of the hard water, but our new customer recently had heart surgery and is on a salt-restricted diet.

  • 4 Common Misconceptions about water softeners

    Most people know that water softeners offer many benefits to your home and your happiness. They protect your home’s plumbing from hard water buildup, extend the life of your water heater due to limescale which is usually present in city water supplies, help home appliances (such as washing machines and dishwashers) perform better, and they offer many benefits for skin and hair. However, there are ...

  • Old water softener replaced in Hoover today

    One of our installation vans is in Hoover today. We are replacing an old water softener that was installed by the previous homeowners. It has not worked in several years and the new owners did not want to put any money into to an older, out-dated softener. Also, the nearest dealer for that brand of softener is over 100 miles away in Huntsville so the new owners were concerned about getting future ...

  • No sense in remodeling the bathroom until we remodel our water!

    Today's installation was in the Cahaba Heights area of Birmingham. We met Mrs. B at the Hoover Home Show last month. She and Mr. B have been doing extensive remodeling to their home and were looking for ideas at the show. One reason she wanted to remodel her bathroom was that the hard water buildup had ruined her shower and fixtures but she didn't want to spend money to remodel the shower until ...

  • After buying a water softener from a big box retailer in Birmingham, Mrs S. had regrets...

    Our new customer, Mrs. S. in Birmingham, bought a water softener from a local big box retailer because she felt her water was too hard. When she tried to arrange for installation at the same big box store, they told her they didn't have anyone at this time that knew how to install them. They recommended she call a local plumber. This concerned Mrs. S about who could repair the water softener, ...

  • I want a water system installed before we spend the first night on our new house.

    Our existing customers in Alabaster had a water softening system in their house and decided to leave it for the new buyers. Before they moved in we installed a SmartChoice Water Conditioner . This is the same system they had in their previous house. They loved it because it will soften their water and filter out the chlorine and other chemicals. Multiple problems solved in one system.

  • I wish i had gotten a water conditioner years ago!

    Today we installed a SmartChoice Water Conditioner in Birmingham Alabama. The new owners of this water conditioner were tired of the dry skin and bad taste from their city water. They had heard that Birmingham had good water, but they were never happy with it. 'Good water' has different meanings for different people. What the city determines is good water isn't always what the end user would ...

  • Water softener installed on a slab home in Helena Alabama

    Today we replaced an older RainSoft water softener in Helena Alabama. The RainSoft water system was installed outside and had frozen and cracked this winter.

  • Can't have the grandbabies bathing in smelly iron water

    We made bad water into great water today in Jemison Alabama. Mr. S called because his daughter and son in law were remodeling a beautiful house near Jemison, but the well water that supplied the house had high iron and sulfur levels. A water filtration system was in the budget but the grandparents didn't want the grandbabies bathing in the smelly well water. We installed an Aqua Systems air ...

  • When installing a water softener, is it a good idea to replace the water heater too?

    When installing a whole house water filter or a water softener, it can make sense to install a new water heater at the same time. When soft water runs through plumbing pipes and water heaters that have scale or hard water build up, the soft water will remove 1 years worth of scale in about a month. While this is certainly a good thing when you purchase a water softener, the scale that it removes ...

  • Hard water and cold showers are gone for these new Homewood residents.

    Hard water and cold showers are gone for these new Homewood residents. Many new and remodeled homes in Homewood Alabama have tankless water heaters. Tankless water heaters are far superior in performance and longevity as long as they have a water softener installed on the incoming water line. Hard water builds up in a tankless water heater much quicker than in a conventional tank type heater. This ...

  • Water softener can solve multiple problems in Pelham, AL

    Our installation today was in Pelham, Alabama. Pelham water is considered very hard. Hard water can cause a multitude of problems around the house; hard water stains and soap scum in the shower, dry skin, shortened appliance life, and poor tasting coffee and beverages. In order to filter out hard water minerals, a homeowner in Pelham would need a water softener. Conventional water filters won't ...
