WHAT IS HARD WATER?
Your family deserves the best; this includes clean, quality drinking water. City water can travel through miles of pipes before finally reaching your home. Chlorine is used to help keep that water clean, but this does not always address all of the water issues during transit. Even with city officials* best efforts, there are still approximately 700 boil water advisories every day.

- Operating costs were 34% less on 20 GPG (grains per gallon) water.
- Gas water heaters are up to 24% more cost-efficient on soft water.
- Electric water heaters can accumulate as much as 30 lbs of rock, shortening the heating element’s life.
