The Phoenix water supply mostly comes from snow melt, traveling thousands of miles across rocks and sediment, collecting hard minerals and contaminants. Untreated water, whether running through your plumbing or mist system, will cause scale to build and shorten the operating life of the equipment.
Treated Water – Supplying water to a mist system that is free of hard minerals (calcium & magnesium) will minimize the operating costs, extend the equipment life, and prevent scale buildup on furniture, walls and flooring. Removing hard minerals from water can be accomplished in two ways; a water softener or through a high-production reverse osmosis unit. It is important to understand that a No-Salt system will not remove hard minerals from the water.
The use of a water softener is the most economical of the two options, plus, the softener can be connected to your home preventing your pipes from clogging, stops further scale buildup on your fixtures, shower glass and dishware. Plus, softened water reduces the amount of chemicals & detergents required for cleaning by up to 50%, saving you time and money!
