How to choose the best water softener system for the arizona desert climate

  1. 1. How to Choose the Best Water Softener System for theArizona Desert ClimateHard water is the most common water quality problem in the United States. Highwater hardness causes soaps to be less effective, and it leaves soap scum residuein bathtubs, on shower doors, on skin and hair. It is more than a nuisance: Hardwater causes scale and build-up in water heaters, and it builds up in componentsof washing machines and dishwashers. This can add up to costly repairs.There are three minerals that make up hard water: Calcium, magnesium, andlime. This water hardness is measured in grains per gallon or parts per million.Water hardness above 7 grains is considered “very hard”, and hardness over 10.5grains per gallon is considered “extremely hard”. And how does water in thegreater metropolitan area of Phoenix measure up? It falls into the “extremelyhard” category, because water measures from 12 to 22 grains on the average!Water softening in Phoenix is a must.Choosing the best water softer systems in Arizona is no small task, because thereare many products on the market. They may all seem very similar in features andbenefits, so it boils down to comparing quality of components and construction,reliability, and of course, price.First, let’s consider the issue of price. Prices can range from anywhere between$1000 and $4000, depending on the dealer. Independent water treatment dealersoffer better prices than franchise water dealers, because they can offer morechoice.The quality of systems from independent water softening dealers is on par withthe quality that the expensive franchise dealers offer. The most importantcomponent of any water softening system is the control valve, and it must worktogether with the controller to optimize efficiency to clean and regenerate thewater softener. Look for valves with few moving parts, valves with a single pistondesign, and valves made of Noryl, a glass-reinforced composite material withgreat strength and durability. Avoid systems that are manufactured overseas—
  2. 2. Valves in these systems are usually constructed of cheaper materials that cannotwithstand the warm, dry Arizona desert climate.Also make sure that high quality resin is used—High cross-linked resin is thehallmark of superior water softener systems in Arizona. High cross-linked resinshave greater resistance to the typical degradation of resin in water supplies thatare highly chlorinated, such as Phoenix municipal water supplies.Finally, the water softening system for your home should be reliable. This meansthat components and materials are of high quality. It also means that thecompany’s service is dependable. Check that the independent dealer is a licensedcontractor for water softening in your locale. Also check local Better BusinessBureau (BBB) ratings and reviews to confirm that the company you areconsidering has a solid reputation.
