Whole House Water Softeners

How Does a Whole House Water Softener Work?

Hard water occurs in 85% of the United States and causes problems for all affected families. Hard water has high concentrations of calcium and magnesium, which cause scale to build up and clog pipes so that water pressure is reduced. It shortens the useful life of household appliances and, because calcium and magnesium solidify when hot, is particularly damaging to water heaters and other hot water appliances. Hard water requires extra detergent to clean clothes properly, prevents soap and shampoo from lathering well, causes itchy skin and dry hair, leaves washed dishes streaky, and forms unsightly scum on baths and shower screens. It is a nuisance and a whole house water softener systems will cure the problem.

What Can a Water Softener Do for Your Whole House?

If your hard water issue is serious enough that you’re looking into buying our whole house hard water softener, you’ll see a dozen little changes. Your everyday quality of life will go up in noticeable little ways because, after all, we all use water, all the time! Improving the quality of your water is improving the quality of your life, simple as that. Here are some changes you can expect after purchasing a water softener from us: 

  • Easier Dishwashing: You may have noticed that your gorgeous glasses and dishes have faded a bit over the years. They don’t shine like they used to, and washing them doesn’t really change that. It can feel downright embarrassing to serve guests with those glasses, plates, and cutlery. That faded layer is actually a buildup of minerals such as magnesium and calcium, which are the main culprits in hard water. They leave behind an almost chalky residue that builds up on frequented surfaces over time and is tough to scrub out. With softened water, your dishes won’t fade anymore, and your old ones might even regain a bit of their shine!
  • Clothing Mileage: Hard water is not gentle with fabrics. Hard water can actually make your most delicate textiles more brittle after repeated washing. That’s not fun for anyone, especially when your most delicate fabrics are probably also your most expensive ones! Residue buildup will also cause the colors in your clothing to dull; if you have a favorite shirt or dress, it’s dulling as we speak. When you get a reliable water system, though, your clothing will actually last a bit longer and retain its original color for longer. And Aqua Clear Water Systems provides the best whole house water softener.
  • Discoloration Woes: If your water has excess amounts of iron, you’ll know. You’ll have seen these big, ugly orange stains on frequented surfaces. If you’re especially unlucky, you’ll have seen faint orange stains on some of your lighter-colored laundry, especially the white garments. If that’s the case, get yourself a water softener yesterday. It will eliminate that issue and save your house and your fashion at the same time.

Over time, hard water has a number of damaging effects, both to your body and your appliances. And - let's face it - soft water just tastes a lot better! However, installing a water softener might or whole home filter might feel like a big decision - so here are some frequently asked questions that break down common questions about water softeners.

Water Softener Systems For Homes FAQs:

How do water softeners work?

Water softeners strip the magnesium and iron ions from water, instead replacing them with sodium (or sometimes potassium) ions. The result is soft, fresh-tasting water (for context, all bottled water is soft).

Is it a bad thing that water softeners strip the iron and magnesium minerals from water?

No, not at all; the vast majority of the minerals we need come from our diets - very little can be accounted for from the water we drink. Compared to the host of benefits that soft water provides, from a nutritional perspective, it's not worth having hard water at all.

Can I install a water softener myself, or do I need a professional?

While some water softening systems are available as DIY installation kits, it's advisable to hire a water treatment specialist, a water softener company in Tennessee or certified plumber for proper installation. They can ensure the system is correctly connected to your plumbing and provide any necessary adjustments or modifications to the water system.

Will having a water softener installed be disruptive?

Our team will ensure to do anything possible to ensure that having a water softener installed for your home is a seamless process with minimal fuss.

Do water softening systems require maintenance?

Water softeners require low-level but periodic maintenance. Examples of maintenance tasks include refilling the brine tank with salt or potassium pellets, monitoring salt levels, and occasionally cleaning or replacing the resin beads. Similarly to well water filtering systems the frequency of necessary maintenance depends on your household's water usage and the specific system you have installed.

From start to finish, Aqua Clear Water Systems has been a first class outfit to deal with. It’s obvious that the owners care enough to hire people who work with integrity, communicating with class and taking care to perform each step of the installation correctly. The warranty offered for these systems is the best I’ve found. Worth the investment. I can’t stand sales pitches… so when I told Cory I didn’t want to feel like he was “selling me something,” he got the picture immediately and simply educated me on the options and what he would recommend. We highly recommend this company!

Deborah Phillips

Aqua Clear was fantastic from the moment they came to our home to explain the system all the way through instalation. We had extremely hard water and being near the lake higher nitrates. As a family of 3 we were already seeing stains and build up around our new fixtures in our new home. Got a full system installed in a very tight space with no problems and looks great. Just had my first glass of R/O and was absolutely amazing. Thank you so much. Really great service!


Very professional staff, everyone at aqua clear makes is very helpful and seem to care. My water looked brown, I was worried but they sent someone out to my house in 20 mins. to fix it and he did a perfect job!!! His name was Joshua and he was very professional and fixed my water! My water is clear now!!! Thank you Aqua clear and Joshua needs a raise!! Lol!!! I highly recommend kinetics water, if you have a well!!! These people are the BEST!!

This is our second time purchasing a whole house water filtration system from Aqua Clear. We left the first system with our old home for new owners. Purchased another home and we immediately called Aqua Clear. Dustin and Avery came out and installed our new system plus a new water heater. They were polite, punctual, and answered all questions.

Lydia Keeler

This company is awesome! We started with them in 2007 for whole house filtering system, water softener, and a reverse osmosis water tap with alkaline water. Have noticed a huge difference in the drinking water, laundry, showers etc that comes with not having a filtering system. Give them a try you will not be disappointed in their service and their product.

Janet Kukla

We have had our water treatment system and been with Aqua Clear for past 10 years this year. They have always done a great job! The people that handle our appointments to the technicians that do our annual filter change and all in between are very professional and do a great job?

Terra Heidle

This system has been in my log cabin since 2006. Good maintenance on this unit has kept it going all these years. I love the way each service person has came into my home and gave me exactly what it needed. Thank you so much!! 1 very satisfied person!!!

Theresa Langlois

We found out our spring water was contaminated by agricultural run-off with a high level of nitrate. Our water was also very hard. We hired Aqua Clear to put in a system, and they have been fabulous. Our technician, Cory, took care of everything we needed today. Super kind and professional. Our water feels so much better when showering and tastes great. It feels great to know we have gotten rid of the nitrates! We recomend Aqua Clear to all our friends and family.
