Water Treatment in Dutchess County

Don’t Take a Chance With Your Water
Water is the most essential nutrient we need, and it’s one that we use each and every day for drinking, bathing, doing dishes, laundry, and more. So, if the water in your home isn’t fresh, it makes doing those every day chores a little bit more difficult.
It’s best to not take a chance with your water and to ensure it’s clean whenever you need it. With a water treatment system, you can do just that.
Water Treatment Options
At T. Webber Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning, we like to give our customers options. For water treatment, you can do one of two things (or, if you choose, you can do both!):
- Water filtration: Outdoor and public water sources are often carrying unwanted materials – like bacteria, chemicals, sediment, and dirt – into your home’s water. Water filtration systems remove these materials by filtering water before it reaches your faucets.
- Water softening: If you have hard water in your home – so, if you notice deposits on your clothes or plumbing fixtures, red-tinged water, spots on dishes, etc – then a water softening system will do you some good. Hard water, in addition to the lack of lather and cleanliness, also can damage your plumbing system over time. Installing a water softening system will remove the extra calcium and magnesium, making your water softer!
Water Filtration Systems
When you choose to install a water filtration system, you have three different options to choose from:
- Whole home: The most popular choice, whole home systems equips every fixture and appliance with a water filtration device.
- Filters on faucets: Only certain fixtures, like kitchen sinks, bathroom shower heads, etc, will have the system installed on it.
- Filters on appliances: You can also choose to have one installed on just individual appliances.
Water Softening Systems
And the options just keep on coming. While water filtration systems are a branch of water softening, if you have extremely high levels of magnesium and calcium, you may want to look to one of these instead:
- Salt-based water softener: These are typically great options for any home and situation, but keep in mind they do require some maintenance.
- Descaling: Opposite of salt-based (often referred to as salt-free water softeners), these systems soften the water that comes into your home and remove the hardening minerals.
