Hard Water Solutions

Over 85% of US households have hard water. Hard water is water with a high mineral content, and it’s a real problem especially in New Mexico. Two common minerals, calcium and magnesium, when found in water can cause major issues for your home or business’s plumbing. When calcium and magnesium bind together, they form mineral deposits, or scale, and they stick to the interior of pipes. This can be difficult to remove and can lead to clogging.

In other cases, scale can eat through piping and cause leaks. Water heaters in particular are at risk, as mineral deposits can significantly reduce their lifespan. Affordable Service offers solutions, the enviro Water Heater Shield® and a complete line of enviro Water Filtration and Softener systems.

Water Heater shield
The Water Heater Shield® is installed on the feed water line. It filters and removes dirt, rust, salt, silt and sediment. Siliphos media within the filter chamber inhibits scale buildup and stops corrosion by creating a thin protective layer that lines the surfaces within the water heater. This shield protects your water heater from the corrosive effects of hard water.

Water Filters and Softeners
Affordable service offers several models of water filtration systems by enviro. These water filters impact whole-house water supply and address chlorine, chloramines, taste and odor. With an enviro water filter, your water will taste better and reduce water waste. Affordable service also offers salt-free water softeners that leave in beneficial minerals. Both water filtration systems and salt-free water softeners operate without electricity, and waste no water!

Hard water is an issue for most households in New Mexico, and the thing that makes hard water damage so difficult to detect is that it’s gradual. Its effects are only seen over time, and often, when it’s finally noticed, damage has already begun. Preventive measures to protect your plumbing system from the ill effects of hard water should be taken before it’s too late! Call Affordable Service to learn about our hard water solutions. Not only will your water be softer and easier on your plumbing system in your home, but it will also taste better, and save you money.
