Houston Water Softener Solution by Texas Master Plumber
A water softener is essential if you live in the Houston area. Water Softeners take hard Houston water and convert it to soft water. But many people have hard water issues and do not realize that their are some long-term costs associated with having hard water.
Buying a water softener in Houston is as common as buying an air conditioner in Houston. If you have lived in Houston for any length of time you realize that you need both. There are many reviews on various kinds of water softeners but we recommend salt-free water softeners since they don’t use chemicals which leave that slimy feeling on you which is often described as the “I can’t seem to get all the soap off of me” feeling. In particular, we recommend the Pelican Water Softening system as we proudly carry their products.
Water softeners do several things to the hard Houston water. Houston water softeners reduce mineral deposites that are associated with scale build up on showers, tubs, and toilets. The smell that is often associated with hard water comes from minerals that water softeners reduce. And we could go on and on about the health benefits of having a Houston water softener.

The number one expense and time consuming job of cleaning is the removal of hard water scale from toilets, fixtures, shower heads and sinks. A study by Ohio State University determined that it takes an average of nearly 4 hours per house cleaning hard water scale. When softened water was made available, cleaning time was cut by 40%. Over the course of a year, this would save you more than 10 8-hour work days (80 hours). That is a lot of scale and a lot of time!The average Houstonian spends up to $45/month in cleaning supplies and harsh chemicals.

Soaps & Savings
Depending on what size detergent container you use and whether you use the powder or the liquid Houstonians spend on average $10 for a container of detergent for washing clothes. It seems like it takes more and more detergent to get the job done. Do you Eever wonder why you go through so much soap when doing your laundry? Hard water prevents many soaps from properly creating soap suds or lathering and thus requires more soap and soaps containing salts and chemicals to counteract the hard water. These kinds of soaps are harsh on your skin and cause your coloring in your clothing to dull more rapidly. The extra soap also costs you money every month, on average we spend $20/month on soaps. With the Houston Water Softening solution from Texas Master Plumber installed in your home, you can reduce your soap usage and use more natural soaps with less salts and chemicals.
