Traditional Water softeners

A traditional water softener for the whole house removes calcium and magnesium ions from water and replace those ions with potassium or sodium ions. Water softeners will provide better tasting water and the elimination of the possibility of lime scale build-up. 

Benefits of a Whole House Water Softener

  • Healthier and softer skin
  • Shower doors and dishes without water spots
  • Requires less soaps and detergents, saving you money
  • Prevent scale build up in your water heater, therefore, prolonging the life of your water heater
  • Prolong the life of your whole plumbing system

Whole House Water Filtration

All Star Plumbing of Abilene recommends a whole house water filtration to eliminate contaminates and chemicals in your home’s plumbing system. The quality of your water will improve the taste and feel of your water. You don’t just drink the water from your pipes, you cook with it and bathe in it, too. Your body absorbs a lot of water during baths or showers as well.

Whole house water filters are different from whole house water softeners. Water filters may not eliminate scale build-up, but they do reduce other contaminants and bacteria. If you notice the water in your home is not clear, has a bad odor, tastes bad, or makes your skin and hair dry, then you should consider a whole home water filter. Whole house filtration can last your home more than a decade and it does not require maintenance.

Benefits of whole house water filters:

  • Dispenses a constant supply of purified water throughout the whole house
  • Reduces the amount of chlorine, chloramines, carbon based organic compounds (VOC’s) such as pesticides, herbicides and industrial solvents that are in your tap water therefore eliminating bad taste and odor.
  • Enhances the flavor of food and water mixed beverages
  • Healthier and less wrinkled skin by eliminating chlorine
  • Extends the life of your fixtures, faucets, and pipes by removing chemicals in your water
  • Save money and time by not buying bottled water or water filters
