What To Look For In Water Softeners

When you figure out that your home has hard water, it can be a bit off-putting. You might be wondering what you can do to fix this problem. Thankfully, when you call a reliable and trusted company like Haferman Water Conditioning, we can help you every step of the way – from finding out if you have hard water to selecting the best water softener. We provide water softeners in Minnetrista and water softeners in Waconia and in other areas, so we have plenty of experience!

When we come to homes to discuss hard water problems, we will consider a few things before recommending water softeners. One of the main things we consider is how big your household is. How much water do you use on a regular basis? We want to make sure we recommend water softeners that are just the right size for your home – not too big and not too small! The other main issue is how hard your water is. Water hardness is measured in grains per gallon (gpg):

Soft: 0 to 1 gpg
Slightly hard: 1.1 to 3.5 gpg
Moderately hard: 3.6 to 7 gpg
Hard: 7.1 to 10.5 gpg
Very hard: more than 10.5 gpg

Haferman Water Conditioning is an authorized independent Kinetico dealer. And we like their water softeners because they work on kinetic energy, which means our customers’ utility bills will not increase when we install one of these water softeners in their homes. Plus, regeneration is based on your actual water usage, which is a great way to conserve water and the salt necessary to keep water softeners up and running. These water softeners can even extend the life of your water-using appliances!
