Frequently Asked Water Questions

What is hard water?

Hard water is the result of dissolved minerals in water. These minerals are primarily calcium and magnesium and they are measured in grains per gallon. It produces scale build up in dishwashers, ice makers, water heaters and washing machines.

How is water softened?

Water is softened or conditioned by exchanging hardness ions such as calcium and magnesium with softer sodium or potassium ions. Our water softeners regenerate on demand with a brine solution renewing their ability to remove hardness from the water. The hard water passes through a tank containing resin beads coated with sodium potassium ions. The beads trap and hold the hardness until they are cleaned during the regeneration process.

Why can’t I just buy a water softener from the local home improvement store?

There are many different types of hard water and water problems. A one size fits all approach may not meet all your needs. With a free and simple test, your

American Aqua
technician can analyze your water and recommend the best solution.

How expensive is a water conditioning system?

A water treatment system from

American Aqua
will more than pay for itself in short order. You will use less soap and detergent, your appliances will be more energy efficient, and you will get longer life out of your clothing, dishes, and water using appliances.

What’s wrong with not having a water softener?

Hard water can build up scale in your pipes and water using appliances. To keep your dishwasher, water heater, pipes, and ice makers in top working order, it is best to use conditioned water. You will have fewer maintenance problems and add many years to the life of your appliances and pipes.

Isn’t municipal water already softened?

Municipalities often treat water with chlorine to kill bacteria. This meets Federal requirements, but can leave a chlorine aftertaste in your water. It also does not soften water, so a water conditioning system is still recommended.

Why is it important to drink high-quality water?

You are what you drink! Seventy percent of your body is made up of water. It is a scientific fact that drinking plenty of water is necessary for a healthier life. Our reverse osmosis drinking water system actually save you money by eliminating the need to buy bottled water.

Can you make my ice cubes clean and clear?

Yes. We can hook up our reverse osmosis drinking water system to both your sink and fridge, giving you clean and clear ice cubes you will be comfortable serving to your guests.

Local Reviews

Tested water and recommended system based on water quality. Representative recommended softener only and explained that we probably did not need a reverse osmosis filter system unless we really wanted one. Quoted fair price with no attempt to upsell. System delivered on time and installer was neat and professional. They do offer competitively priced salt delivery, but I did not want to wrestle 80 lb bags of salt into the unit.

They brought me salt and fixed a valve on the water softener. They are very nice, polite, and area great company.

This provider supplies us with drinking water for the office on a bi-monthly basis. Their staff is very friendly and attentive. They return calls promptly and John who delivers the water is very friendly and helpful. Our previous water supplier was not client friendly which prompted us to look elsewhere and we are very pleased with Americn Aqua and highly recommend them.
