Renters Deserve Soft Water Too!

If you are one of the many Americans who live in an area that has hard water, you know how annoying and costly its effects can be.  But maybe you’re renting a home and you thought you just had to put up with it.  After all, your landlord lives in another state where he doesn’t have to deal with hard water himself, so he doesn’t see the need of improving the quality of your water.

Hard water simply means water that contains excess minerals, usually iron, calcium and/or magnesium.  Although it doesn’t always affect your water’s taste and it doesn’t usually pose a health threat to those who drink it, it can, have devastating effects on your appliances and plumbing as the excess minerals from the water build up over time in your pipes and inside your appliances.  Rather than just accepting hard water as your inevitable fate if you are renting, take the time to educate yourself on what services are available from local water treatment companies.

To start, most water treatment companies offer an in-home water test to determine just how hard your water is, and many even do it for free or minimal cost.  Based on the results of the test, their trained professionals can then recommend the highest quality water softener that will meet your needs.  There are many options available, taking into account what is affordable for you and what makes the most sense based on how much space you have to hold a water softener.

If you are concerned with installing something permanent in your rented home or apartment, you can take advantage of the exchange tank service that some companies, such as Rayne of Camp Pendleton, offer.   A trained technician delivers a fresh soft water tank to your home weekly, bi-weekly, or more infrequently, all depending on how many people are living at your residence.  You don’t have to worry about supplies and the service is automatic, making it easier than ever to have soft water all the time.  Take the time to check out your options today because you deserve soft water too!
