Hard Water and the Hill Country: Taking Back Your Water

hill countryHill Country’s Water Supply

The Texas Hill Country is home to arguably some of  the best property in Texas. Rolling hills, wildflowers and great views are just a few of the perks that Hill Country homeowners can enjoy. However, there is one drawback. (A correctable drawback, but a drawback nonetheless.) The Hill Country is home to some of the hardest water in the country.

San Antonio has a hard water mineral concentration of around 226 mg/L and Boerne has a hard water mineral concentration of up to 358 mg/L. For a little perspective, areas with calcium and magnesium concentrations over 180 mg/L are considered to have very hard water. Boerne has nearly double that amount! That’s bad news for San Antonio and Boerne homeowners. Over the years, the mineral buildup can clog or break pipes, ruin fixtures and appliances, and even wreak havoc on your hair and skin.

Luckily, water softeners in Boerne are not hard to come by! For extremely hard water, you want to choose a product that will last a lifetime. Water softeners are investments just like any other major appliance and when it comes to this particular product, you get what you pay for. If you’re planning to stay in your home for years to come and don’t want to have to replace and repair your softener constantly, do your research and pick the best softener available. If the idea of financing a water softener seems insane to your, picture it this way – the amount is small compared to the cost of replacing your plumbing, fixtures or countless lesser softeners.

A water softener will remove all unwanted minerals and contaminants from your home’s water. This is especially important if your Boerne or Hill Country home is on a well system. You can simultaneously protect the life of your plumbing and the health of your family’s drinking water.
