What kind of salt does a water softener use?

Water softeners in Jacksonville FL that are on city water will use regular water softener solar salt. It comes in either fine crystals or pellets, we recommend the crystal form. Water Softeners in Jacksonville FL that are on well water will use the rust prevention salt. On well water, additional elements such as iron will require an additive to clean the water softener resin media tank. Look for the bag that refers to iron or rust removal.

How long does it take to install a water softener system?

The amount of time required to install a water softener will vary based on the installation details. At most an installation can take up to 4 hours but most jobs require only 1-2 hours. All jobs are finished within 1 day and can be scheduled in the morning or afternoon depending on scheduling preferences.

How do I get an estimate for a water softener and are estimates free?

Estimates are scheduled conveniently either during the day, weekday evening or on Saturday. The estimate includes a plumbing analysis to determine how much work is involved with the installation of a water softener. Then a water test will determine additional details like how much hardness per every gallon of water is being fed to a home. We use both inputs to size/ recommend the right system for that home. Yes, Estimates are always free.
