Boerne Water Softener Company Serving Cordillera Ranch & the Texas Hill Country
Struggling with hard water? So are most of your neighbors in Boerne, Fair Oaks Ranch and the rest of the Texas Hill Country. Water in the San Antonio area is rated as some of the hardest water in the United States. With much of our water flowing through underground beds of limestone, it’s not surprising that your water has a high mineral content. Unfortunately, these minerals can wreak havoc on your home’s plumbing. Installing a water softener can help protect your Boerne home hard water.
Getting Soft Water
How a Water Softener Works
Water softeners use sodium from water softener salts to draw calcium and other hard minerals out of the water. These hard minerals are flushed from the water and not allowed to travel the plumbing in your home. The result is softer water without calcium, magnesium or other “hard” minerals.

Finding the Right Water Softener
How to Choose the Right Water Softener System for Your Home
It’s important to install the right water softener for your home. If you choose a system that is too large or that recharges too frequently you may be wasting money and water. On the other hand, if you choose a system that is too small, you may still have to battle hard water.
In addition, if your water has challenges including sediment, iron, or sulfur, having an inline whole house filter may be necessary for optimal water softening.
Whether your home is on it’s own well or you are on city water, a water softener can help you. When you call us out for a well plumbing repair, we would also evaluate your water for any water softening needs.
So, what factors should you consider when choosing a water softener for a home in Boerne and the Texas Hill Country?
1. Water Usage in Your Home
How much water will need to be softened each day? Have you installed a large garden tub that uses lots of water? Include all water used for cooking, drinking, bathing, laundry, toilets, hygiene, and cleaning.
2. Frequency for Water Softener Recharge
Water Softeners should recharge during times when water isn’t being used in the home. That means that at a minimum, a water softener recharge cycle should meet the needs of a single day of water usage. However, it may be beneficial for it to recharge only 1-2 times a week instead.
3. Hardness of the Water in Your Home
A water softener company should always check the water hardness in your home before recommending a water softener. In areas where water is exceptionally hard, like areas in Kendall County with well water, a more “powerful” water softener may be needed.
4. Additional Water Softener Features
Space requirements, smart features, display panels, recharge options, and unit warranties are all additional features you’ll want to take into consideration before you make a decision about which water softener unit to have installed.
Water Softeners come in a variety of options. Our plumbers can help you choose the best water softener for your home.
