As an independent business, we work with a range of different manufacturers to offer you the best product for your requirements. As a result, the domestic water softener prices Colorado is varied, and depends on a number of factors including the capacity, the manufacturer, and duration of the guarantee.
Water softener systems are available from may suppliers.Any one of these will give you soft water, but at a cost. They are initially cheap to buy but the ongoing cost will be high. This does not even cover higher requirements of service and repairs. Some of our customers who have bought equipment is this group will upgrade to a better quality water softener after only a few years. If you have a limited budget it may be more prudent to lease (or rent) one of the more popular water softeners.
As with different models/brands, running costs also vary. All our water softeners are designed so that they do not require regular maintenance. Some of our water softeners are non-electrical so there will be absolutely no increase in your electricity bills. However, even models that do use electricity only use around 15p per day.
The market place can divided broadly into three different groups of supply.
. Budget assembled water softener systems
. Popular main manufacturer water softener systems
. Larger water softener systems
Despite these additional costs, water softeners regularly ‘pay for themselves’ within just a few years thanks to the savings in toiletries, better heat efficiency, and improved water systems. Many households report spending up to 50% less on toiletries and cleaning products, while other expenses such as limescale remover are removed entirely.
How much does a water softener cost? Several factors affect the final cost, including the type of system you choose. A small and simple water purifier for a single tap in a house won’t cost much. On the other end are whole-house water purification systems that clean and soften all water coming into your home. The better a system is at purifying the water, the more costly it will be.
The type of system you choose, and how much maintenance it requires, affects the cost through the years.
These are the most common options for water softeners:
- Reverse osmosis
- Whole-house systems
A distiller uses a steam process to purify the water. This produces clean water but works slowly and can clean only a few gallons per hour. Since distillers are small-scale water softening systems that use distillation to remove the minerals in hard water, they are best for single-use applications such as drinking water (they are also the most affordable).
Reverse osmosis is a common method of water purification. It cleans water by sending it through two liquids. As with a distiller, this is a slow process. Although it is also quite effective, reverse osmosis requires routine maintenance by a professional along with filter changes, both of which add to the cost of upkeep.
A whole-house system relies on a cartridge to filter water and is hooked up to pipes in the house so it cleans and purifies all incoming water. Although it is the most expensive option, it is simple to install and maintain.
Reverse osmosis systems are slightly larger in capacity than distillers, although they also have capacity limitations. On the other hand, whole house systems are capable of purifying all the water coming into the home by using a water filter that is attached to the plumbing system.
Homes without hard water are not likely to benefit from the installation of a water softener, and some water softeners are even able to serve dual purposes as water filters. Before selecting a water softener or a water softener company, it’s important to establish the exact hardness level of your water.
Water softener models with optional add-on features and advanced technologies will cost slightly more than basic model water softeners. In addition to the initial purchase price or monthly rental fee for the equipment, be sure to ask the water softener company you select whether there are any additional charges for the initial setup and delivery of the water softener, as well as any fees for: salt delivery, service calls or emergency repairs, and scheduled maintenance. Each of these can affect the final water softener cost. The domestic water softener prices Colorado may vary depending on whether a water softener is rented monthly or purchased.
Water softening is the process of reducing hardness in water through ion exchange. If you have hard water, water softening will remove those minerals responsible for lime scale, soap scum and hard water spots. Homes with hard water that install a water softener often notice a reduction in the use of soaps and detergents, whiter whites, spotless dishes, softer linens and extended appliance lifecycles.
