Here are some helpful considerations you may want to take into account before purchasing a water
How hard is your water? Having your water tested will help you determine your exact needs, even though you may already know you have one or more water problems.
In determining your needs, a water expert will look at a number of things. For example, the hardness level of the water and the size of your family will influence the size or type of equipment necessary for water softening. Additional problems may require additional equipment solutions. The same principles hold true for drinking water systems.
Your water usage and pressure. The amount of water used as well as water pressure are factors to consider when fitting your home with a water quality improvement system. Household size may influence consumption, but different families have different needs. Every factor should be considered, including family growth and guest visits.
Why you should avoid a "quick fix" Fixing your existing water problem is your primary goal, but don't be eager to settle for the least expensive solution. A higher-priced unit may serve your needs better by being more efficient, and reducing operating costs and maintenance time. Be sure, however, that you're getting your money's worth. Before you buy, get a detailed estimate of equipment, installation, and operating costs.
Buy from a reputable dealer. A reputable water quality improvement equipment dealer is an excellent resource in helping you determine your water conditioning needs.
