4 Alternatives to Using a Chemical Drain Cleaner
Try these Drain Cleaning Methods Instead When your drains get clogged, the first thing that comes to mind is probably using a chemical drain cleaner.
Does your home struggle with hard water? Odds are, you probably do. Hard water is one of the most common water quality issues throughout the Phoenix area and in communities across the United States.
That means there’s a reasonable certainty that your tap water contains elevated levels of minerals, resulting in strange tastes, odd textures, and plenty of other undesirable water qualities. The solution, however, is simpler than you might think: a water softener system from the plumbing team at Plumbing & A/C Medic, Inc. from Gilbert, AZ.
Water softeners remove hard water minerals from your water by replacing their molecules with sodium ions. The whole chemical reaction takes place in a tank filled with “softening media,” which is typically a form of specially-treated, eco-friendly resin.
Water is pumped through your softener tank from your main water supply and as it trickles through the tank, it absorbs the salt while exchanging it with the mineral content. The water that leaves then has a significantly reduced level of mineral content, resulting in far superior quality.
Nearly any Phoenix and Gilbert home that struggles with low-quality or hard water could benefit from a water softener system. Soft water carries a lot of benefits, including improving areas of your plumbing system that you may not have even thought about.
Water softeners can be installed in virtually any home in Gilbert, Chandler, Tempe, or the Phoenix metro area. These systems are typically installed on your main water input line, so they will need to be in a location that has direct access to the water that enters your home (typically found in or near your garage).
Once installed, most water softener systems require very little maintenance beyond occasionally running a cleaning cycle, and the majority don’t even require any additional electricity to operate. This makes cleaner, healthier water more affordable and easier to access than you may have ever imagined!
