Water softening systems are the answer to the problem of ‘hard water’, which many homeowners contend with throughout the country.

The LeverEdge supplies advanced water softening systems or water conditioners that soften and improve the taste and odor of various water supplies. These systems can be easily and effectively installed in homes of virtually any size, style, and age.

Are You Living with Hard Water?

So, what exactly is hard water, and how do you know if your home has it?

The common definition of hard water is any tap water that contains high levels of dissolved calcium and magnesium.

As many as 9 out of 10 homes in the United States have hard water, though the concentrations of dissolved chemicals can vary depending on location.

Consuming hard water isn’t necessarily dangerous, but it can be problematic when cleaning, bathing, using certain appliances, and more.

Symptoms of Hard Water

Hard water is the culprit for a host of domestic water-related issues. Signs of the presence of hard water include:

  • Dry hair or skin
  • Accumulation of soap residue (especially on glass or porcelain surfaces)
  • Excessively long laundry cycles

These symptoms can translate into significant problems, like:

  • Reduced lifespan for water heaters, dishwashers, and other appliances
  • Premature wear of clothes
  • Increased soap usage
  • Limescale buildup on faucets, drains, and plumbing hardware

How Does a Water Conditioner Help?

LeverEdge water conditioners remove calcium and magnesium through a process known as ‘Ion Exchange’. This process significantly reduces the concentration of the hardness minerals (dissolved magnesium and calcium), leaving the water soft.

Benefits of a Water Conditioner

A properly installed water conditioner from The LeverEdge can:

  • Improve hair and skin texture
  • Extend appliance life cycles
  • Reduce soap residue accumulation
  • Lower water heating expenses
  • Reduce the need for harsh cleaning products
