Is your water softener reaching the end of its operating life? If so, a replacement is on the horizon. Whether you were happy with your old system or you know you want to install something completely different, there are some things everyone should consider before every new installation. Today we’re going to help you through the replacement process by talking about five questions you should consider when you’re ready for a water softener replacement!
Consider these five questions when you’re ready for a water softener replacement
- Did you have a good experience with your previous installer? Choosing the right dealer to install your new water softener is just as important as the type of softener that you choose to install. In fact, a high-quality dealer like EPA Water will help you choose the perfect system for your home so you won’t have to second-guess your decision! Before sticking with the same installer, consider how smoothly your previous installation went and whether or not your installer was there to perform high-quality repairs whenever you needed them. If you were not completely satisfied with your last dealer, look for another one who is highly-reputable and properly trained, licensed and certified like EPA Water!
- Were you satisfied with the performance of your previous softener? One of the most important questions you need to ask yourself when you’re choosing a new water softener is whether or not your last system provided high-quality, soft water. If you still noticed some limescale buildup or other symptoms of hard water around your home while your last softener was in use, it likely didn’t meet your performance expectations. There are many other water softeners to choose from, so don’t think that you have to stick with the same unit.
- Did you like the look of your previous softener? Water softeners can range widely in both size and appearance. Conventional softeners tend to be big and bulky and take up a lot of space. A softener like the Hague WaterMax, however, has a small, compact design that also looks great. By choosing a softener with a smaller design like the WaterMax, you might be able to fit your softener in a different location and free up some extra space in your home.
- How efficient was your last softener? Did you notice that your water bills went up significantly after installing your previous water softener or that you spent a whole lot of money on regenerant? Don’t think that that’s something you simply have to live with if you want a softener in your home! Although there are many inefficient softeners on the market, there are also highly-efficient systems like the WaterMax, which uses 80 percent less water and 50 percent less regenerant than conventional softeners.
- Have you considered adding a filtration system as well? Water softeners are great for providing soft water for your home, but they don’t do anything about the contaminants that might be present in your tap water. That’s the job of a water filtration system. While you’re installing a new softener, consider adding filtration capabilities as well. The WaterMax is a fantastic choice for people in this situation because it both filters and softens your water with a single, compact system!
