Water Softeners

What is soft water? Soft water is water that is free from excess minerals such as calcium and magnesium. While these minerals are not harmful if ingested, they can be a nightmare for your plumbing equipment. Hard water, water with these minerals in it, can also cause general problems when it comes to things like washing your dishes or clothing because they can leave behind spots and stains. With EcoWater’s softening systems, you can expect a longer life expectancy for your water system as well as better efficiency from all your appliances that use water.

What are the benefits of soft water?

Water softening has several benefits not only for your home water systems longevity, but also for health reasons as well. Soft water is better for your hair and skin on top of providing a longer life and better efficiency for your plumbing and appliances. You can also receive the following benefits from eliminating hard water from your home:
  • Less film build-up on tubs, sinks, shower wall tiles, and faucets.
  • Removes spotting on glassware, dishes, and flatware.
  • You can use up to 50% less detergent while also getting brighter laundry.
  • Your clothes will last longer.
  • Less build-up in your pipes and more efficient energy consumption from your water heater.
  • Longer life from appliances that use water such as dishwashers, washing machines, and coffee makers.
  • Use less cleaning supplies, and as a result, send less cleaning chemicals down the drain and back into the water supply.

How to choose the water softening system that’s right for you

There are several factors to consider when choosing your water softening solution. You have to consider how much space you have to store the system as well as how hard your current water is. You also need to consider how many people live in your home and how much water you use on a daily basis. We offer both one-tank and two-tank solutions. You can connect with an EcoWater Pro today to get advice on which system is the better solution for your home.

We know that with all of the water purification systems that are on the market today it may be hard to choose which is right for you. But, did you know that EcoWater offers a free home water test to diagnose your water and help you decide which system will offer you the best solution?

What’s the difference between a one-tank and two-tank system?

Common Water Contaminants

Do you notice that your water seems ``off``? If your water tastes metallic, smells like rotten eggs, or leave spots and stain, you may have a water quality problem.

Hard Water

Do you notice spots on dishes, shower doors, or fixtures? Hard water is water that has a high
mineral content.

Chlorine & Chloramines

Does your water smell or taste like a swimming pool? Chlorine is a common disinfectant


Does your water taste metallic or do you notice reddish, rust-like stains? This can be caused by excess ferrous iron


Does your water taste metallic, look brackish or do you notice brownish stains? Similar to iron, manganese is a naturally occurring mineral…

Hydrogen Sulfide

Does your water smell like rotten eggs? Sulfur in your water supply is easily recognized by its offensive odor…

Sediment & Cloudy Water

Does your water look foggy or do you notice sand or dirt in your water? This cloudiness, or turbidity, is simply dirt or other suspended solids in your water.

Low pH

Does your water have a metallic taste or do you notice bluish-green stain inside your toilet tank or on your fixtures?


Arsenic in water can be hard to detect because it is both odorless and tasteless. It can be toxic even at low levels.


Lead differs from other contaminants in that it rarely occurs naturally in the raw water supply. Lead is more likely to become a problem after the water has left the treatment plant.


Nitrate is a naturally occurring form of nitrogren, essential for plant growth and often added to soil (fertilizer) to improve productivity. Excess levels can be harmful to both human and animal health.


Different types of organic matter (algae, mold, and bacteria) can make your water taste earthy or fishy.


A number of trace pharmaceuticals have been found in drinking water supplies. The impact on the people’s health remains unclear.

Does your water taste funny, smell odd, or not look normal?


Benefits of Clean Water

When you have clean, purified water, your health and wellness can be drastically improved. Clean water helps to flush away toxins in our bodies and helps our bodies perform optimally. It hydrates us better, gives us more energy, and improves our overall health.

Hard water can cause build-up in our hair. Showering with softened, purified water makes our hair smoother, cleaner, and healthier. It removed things like hair products and gently washes away excess natural oils we tend to build up over time.

Not only does clean water make our clothes look brighter and feel softer, but it also helps our washing machines perform more efficiently. That means your clothes will be cleaner than they ever have before.

Just like with our hair, showering with clean water also has excellent benefits for our skin. It helps to wash away grime better, and makes our skin softer, cleaner, and overall healthier.

Clean water means things like calcium and hard metals aren’t going through our pipes and causing build-up. This extends the longevity of all of our appliances from our dishwasher to our coffee makers.

Fabric softener works to balance out the static in our clothes thats caused by hard water. With clean water, we can use less fabric softener since our clothes already come out with much less static. You will save money since you can use up to 50% less fabric softener in your wash.
