Hidden Costs Of Water Softeners - Hidden Costs Of Water Softeners

There are many types of hard water treatment options available for homeowners looking for a residential hard water solution.  If you are considering a water softener, it is important to understand all of the costs involved.  Our next series of articles will uncover some of the hidden costs of water softeners.  Let’s get started:


Installing a water softener is something most homeowners hire someone to do. If you choose to do it yourself, you will need to follow some very specific steps to ensure proper installation. Some of these steps include shutting off the water and even cutting into the main water line, which can be risky and should be performed by an experienced professional. In contrast, the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is the easiest residential hard water solution to install, especially compared to other types of hard water treatment options.  Simply wrap the signal cable around the incoming water pipe and plug it in. Many homeowners choose to install their electronic water descaler themselves rather hiring someone to install it for them.
