San Antonio and Hard Water

August 9, 2012

The Limestone Problem

You hear all the time that our area has some of the hardest water in the country. We’ve written about it frequently here on the Kinetico San Antonio blog. And it’s why it’s so important to have water softeners in San Antonio.

As we’ve explained in the past, the reason behind the hard water here is the limestone in the Edwards Aquifer.

Here’s a map from the U.S. Geological Survey that shows water hardness. The red parts of the map have the hardest water. You’ll notice a lot of red around San Antonio and the Hill Country. So it really is no joke that San Antonio has some of the water in the country.

We're very glad we got this installed. The technician, Alberto, was very polite and thoroughly explained what he was doing and what we would need to do.

Alberto kept me informed on his arrival time. He was professional and exceeded my expectations concerning the install of the water filtration system. I also need to put a plug in for Tracy for her patience and skills at making things happen behind the scenes...a true unsung hero. They both deserve a raise!


I just had my system installed by Alberto and Jay, and I wanted to say that they rocked. Got it all in and gave me some instructions to follow, all while being determined to detail and professional. Thanks, fellas.
