Most homeowners do not know the benefits of having a soft water system vs. using the standard hard water produced from city water in Flagstaff. This is why most homeowners and commercial establishments still leave their water systems untreated.
Essentially, hard water contains a large amount of minerals, usually calcium and magnesium. These minerals tend to lower the overall quality of water that is coming out of the pipe systems and is also known to cause more problems with your plumbing over time vs. using a water softner.

When left untreated, hard water could have undesirable effects after some time. It could clog water pipes as well as appliances that utilize water like coffee makers and dishwashers. It could also leave behind a thin, soapy film on skin and hair when used for bathing. Moreover, hard water decreases the cleaning efficiency of soaps and detergents because it causes cleaning materials to dissolve considerably slower.
Because residents of Flagstaff cannot really choose what kind of water comes out of their water system, all that they can do is hire a professional plumbing company like Diamondback Plumbing to install a water softener system in their home or business.
Installation of water softeners is a job that is best left to the professionals. Although many homeowners tend to try and do this work themselves, it is not advisable because inexperienced work can lead to unknown problems. The most common problems encountered in this regard are inefficient water softener placement, low quality of water from the softening process, and low life span of the water softener unit.
When done by a professional, a home or commercial unit owner will be guaranteed to have his water softener unit installed in the right spot, with the correct procedures and needs of your home. Generally, water softeners are installed as close to the place where the water enters your home.
This is not as easy as it sounds because certain considerations should not be forgotten. One factor that needs to be considered is the effect of high temperature on the water softener unit. This is why water softeners should not be installed downstream from the water heater. Another consideration is that the unit should be placed as further back on the line as possible. This is to protect the unit and the pipe from the harsh corrosive effects that hard water may bring.
Additionally, by employing a professional, the overall quality of water softening process will be guaranteed. Water softening can be done in many ways by employing different methods or systems. The method that is most efficient and cost-effective depends on the pipe system of a house as well as its size. A professional company like Diamondback Plumbing can suggest to homeowners what type of system they should choose. Moreover, the proper materials required for the system will be supplied, making the water softening process more effective.
Another thing to consider in the installation of water softener systems is the securing of necessary permits as well as conforming to the building codes of a particular area. With professionals, homeowners will not have to work on this, as we will handle all the necessary paper work needed.
When using Diamondback Plumbing, we can help ensure proper installation of your water softner system, which will help reduce possible repairs in future years. If you need a repair, we will use high quality materials, parts and processes to repair your system.
Generally, water softeners last for many years. However, due to corrosion caused by hard water, as well as natural wear and tear of the unit, there may come a time that the water softening system will need maintenance or repair.
Additionally, when we install the water softener unit, we have the base knowledge on the components of the water softener unit and what’s needed for installation. Depending on the age of the softner we usually carry and have the necessary needed replacement parts for most water softners. Generally replacement of your water softner system only comes after determining if your existing softner cannot be repaired.
