Water Softener Services in St. Louis and Surrounding Areas

If you’ve ever encountered that crusty white residue on your faucet or shower head, or dealt with scaling in your pipes as a recurring issue, then you know how bothersome hard water can be. It’s a regular issue here in St. Louis and surrounding areas, whose residents are often accustomed to it. It’s not actively harmful, but it can lower your quality of life in subtle but distinctive ways.

The solution may be a comprehensive water softener installed in your home by the trained experts at Performance Plumbing. With it, your water will taste cleaner, your clothes will last longer, and even your baths and showers will feel more refreshing. If you think your St. Louis and surrounding areas home could benefit from a water softener system, call on us today!

What Is Hard Water?

Hard water is simply water with a high amount of mineral content, usually calcium and magnesium which the human body can safely absorb. That makes it safe to drink, though it has other detrimental effects as well. The most obvious is scaling: that white crust on your pipes and tiles than can lead to corrosion or stop up your outlets in some cases.

But other issues can crop up as well. Hard water can be very harsh on your laundry, for example: warping the threads on your clothes and causing colors to fade more quickly than they should. Showers and baths can leave you with a red, raw feeling as well, and if your drinking water tastes funny or metallic, you know the reason why. We can resolve those issues here in St. Louis and surrounding areas with the installation of a whole–house water softener.

What Does It Do?

The easiest way to demonstrate the effects of a water softener system is to fill two ice trays with water from two different sources: one from your tap and one from filtered water purchased at the store. You’ll notice that the ice cubes from the filtered water look much less cloudy than the ice cubes from the tap, and likely taste crisper and cleaner as well. Extend that to all of the water in your home and you’ll begin to see the benefits of water softening. Not only will your water taste better, but your laundry won’t be as punishing on your clothes – helping them look better and last longer ––– and your baths and showers will be more comfortable as well. Best of all, scaling and water deposits will be a thing of the past.

Trust Us to Take Care of the Details

Water softener systems are an ideal way to counter hard water, but they shouldn’t be installed by a layman. It takes proper training and licensing to do the job, along with the experience that comes with handling the issue the right way.

That’s where we come in. Our team is thoroughly background checked and has the good standing brought by the highest possible rating from the Better Business Bureau. Our trucks are fully stocked, and we can move very quickly once you’ve decided that a water softening system is right for you. Call our team today and kiss hard water goodbye!
