Frequently Asked Questions
DOES WATER CONDITIONING SAVES REAL MONEY?
Conditioned water not only makes your life easier; it also saves you money. Figuring very conservatively, conditioned water will save a family of four between $80 to $100, or more, every month. Our whole-house systems will pay for themselves within 12 to 24 months depending on the size of your family and the hardness of your water. This means every year or two you go without conditioned water, you will have paid for a system
Does hard water really create any problems for the homeowner?
Hard water can be a very costly addition to your home primarily because it leaves a residue called hard water scale on all washable surfaces. Over a period of time, hard water scale can clog your plumbing which eventually reduces water pressure. It damages water heaters, dishwashers, washing machines, coffee makers and virtually all appliances through which water passes. This scale leaves spots or streaks on dishes and glassware, and dulls the look of clothing, floors, sinks, tubs, and even hair!
Our high quality water softeners are designed to accommodate the needs of your family as well as the condition of your water. All of our easy to operate units deliver softened water that washes brighter, rinses cleaner and feels a whole lot better.
Is there a way to guard against harmful bacteria?
You won’t have to worry about your health or the safety of your water with Waterfall Systems’ UV Water Conditioner. It destroys potentially harmful bacteria and viruses with UV energy – the same energy found in the powerful rays of the sun. This unique energy source is generated by a germicidal lamp emitting a band of light which attacks a host of micro-organisms and ensures better health for you and your family
Can I protect my plumbing and appliances from costly corrosion?
Corrosion often occurs because of highly acidic water that gradually eats away pipes, appliances, heaters, boilers and air conditioning units. With our Systems’ Acid Neutralizer, the threat and expanse of acidic corrosion is gone. Our Acid Neutralizer uses Calcite, a natural mineral mined from the earth which neutralizes acidic or low pH water. So why spend money on repairs and replacements when a bit of prevention is all you need?
What is Reverse Osmosis Water?
Reverse Osmosis Water is a highly filtered water. Many of the total dissolved solids, and minerals are removed from the water. The water is pre-filtered through a specially designed sediment/carbon block cartridge that removes particles such as silt, rust, and scale down to 5 microns (equal to .0002 inch) along with chlorine, taste, and odors. Next, water is forced through a semipermeable membrane removing many contaminates, reducing them so that the water becomes cleaner. The water then passes slowly through a carbon filter before entering a storage tank. Upon demand, the reverse osmosis water passes through a final carbon filter.
If you’re accustomed to drinking spring water but are interested in a reverse osmosis water system be sure to try reverse osmosis water before you make your final decision. Call us and we’ll recommend a bottled water that accurately represents what you can expect from a reverse osmosis drinking water system.
