Home water in Michigan can be what we call ‘hard’. This means that it contains a large amount of calcium, magnesium, or other minerals. These get into our groundwater when they dissolve from the soil and rocks found near our homes. Other than making our skin and hair dry, hard water scales on the insides of pipes, tea kettles, coffee makers, water heaters, etc. This scale causes reduced water flow through pipes, sometimes even completely clogging them. In addition, the hardness in water reduces our soap’s ability to lather, which we notice in our showers, dishwashers, washing machines, and sinks. The buildup of soap scum on shower doors is another effect of hard water.
Water softeners and reverse osmosis systems can reduce the ill effects of hard water. Many people in this area choose to install water softeners because they are effective and provide a low cost method to remove the excess minerals.
Many people don’t know Robin Aire also checks and installs water softeners. If your home is experiencing the effects of hard water, be sure to call us. You can count on our technicians to inspect your current water softener to ensure it is working properly, and provide a fair estimate for a replacement if you are in need.
Water Purification System
Government studies show that 20% of the nation’s 65,000 community water systems are unable to meet minimum standards of the Safe Drinking Water Act, and 25% of large U.S. public water systems contain traces of one or more toxic substances.
Robin Aire can install an affordable system for your home that will make your water taste great and remove odors. Reverse Osmosis systems eliminate impurities and particles larger than .001 microns from your regular tap water. This allows you to have bottled water quality for as little as 3 cents per day! Reverse Osmosis systems save you money and eliminate your plastic waste. Systems are installed beneath the kitchen sink, or in a basement, and provide purified water from your kitchen faucet or a designated tap near the sink.
Contact Robin Aire when you decide to install a water system in your home, or when it’s time to replace your current one. Our skilled technicians can bring you a new system for that bottled water quality we all enjoy!
