Soften Your Base Water

Posted by Rayne Water

Camp Pendleton, you may have noticed some strange things happening.  You’ve run the dishes through the dishwasher but they come out with spots on them.  You’ve done the laundry but the clothes don’t seem clean.  And, you took a shower but your skin and hair feel dry. Don’t worry; you’re not losing your mind.  You’re just one of the many Camp Pendleton residents experiencing the results of hard water.  Hard water is created when water comes in contact with rocks and soil and picks up excess minerals, usually calcium and magnesium.  On the base, much of the water comes from the Santa Margaurita basin area and is high in minerals.  If left untreated, this water coming through the fixtures in your home causes those water spots you’ve noticed, and also makes it more difficult to get things clean, including the laundry and your own body. Fortunately, there is an easy solution.  Installing a water softener system in your home can make things so much simpler.  A water softener simply removes the excess minerals in the water, allowing the water to be able to do its job more efficiently.  With soft water, less detergent and soap will be needed to create a lather and adequately clean the laundry, your skin, and hair.  And, you will be glad to see those dishes coming out of the dishwasher sparkling clean. Rayne of Camp Pendleton offers base residents affordable options for water softeners.  Instead of having to buy a permanent system, residents can rent a water softener on a month- to- month basis.  When it’s time to move, the system can be removed for no extra charge, and if you’re moving to another home in Camp Pendleton or anywhere in North San Diego County, it can be moved to your new residence for free. Rayne of Camp Pendleton also offers exchange tank service.  This is the easiest water softener system to maintain because Rayne’s professional technicians take care of it all!  They bring a soft water exchange tank to your home and periodically exchange it with a fresh tank.  How often it is exchanged depends on the size of your household.  The tanks do not require electricity or drainage and the customer does not have to add any salt, making it easy and convenient to have soft water all day long.  There’s no reason for you to suffer with hard water any longer…make the trip to Rayne of Camp Pendleton today to find YOUR solution!]]>

Camp Pendleton Housing and Water Treatment Services

Posted by Rayne Water

Even on base, the quality of your drinking water may not be optimal. In the Camp Pendleton area, we deal with both hard water and drinking water contamination. Just because you live on base doesn’t mean that you should have limited access to home drinking water systems. Our services are extended to on-base housing and we provide the same services and products to those living on base no matter what your water needs are.
If contamination is a concern, we offer our drinking water systems where reverse osmosis will effectively reduce harmful contaminants turning tap water into convenient, fresh, clean water at your own separate faucet. Many pollutants are put into the ground and into lakes, rivers and streams every day. The disposal of wastes into ground and surface waters can cause contamination of water that we use for drinking and that we expect to be of excellent quality. It takes many years and it is very costly to remove contamination affecting water supplies. While The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has primary responsibility for ensuring the activities required by the Safe Drinking Water Act, our reverse osmosis can also be a helpful line of defense for your family. According to one news agency, millions of Americans could be drinking water with dangerous chemicals and pollutants. Public water supplies in 42 U.S. states are contaminated with 141 unregulated chemicals for which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has never established safety standards, according to an investigation by the Environmental Working Group (EWG). If your base housing water is contaminated, we can come to you to find the perfect product to turn tap water into safe drinking water.
Water that is high in dissolved minerals can cause a range of problems such as soap scum in sinks and bathtubs, bathtub rings, spots on dishes or shower doors, reduced foaming and cleaning abilities of soaps and detergents, dingy and yellowed clothes with soapy residues that require extra rinsing to remove, clogged pipes from buildup of minerals, increased water heating costs from buildup of minerals, reducing efficiency of water heaters, and possible skin infections from bacteria trapped in pores underneath soap scum.  Our soft water exchange tank service is the environmentally superior way to soften your hard water. With this system, a Rayne technician will deliver a fresh tank to your home and exchange it every week, every 2 weeks or every 4 weeks depending on the number of people in your home. They will return the “old” tank back to the plant to “regenerate” it for the next trip. Contact us today to find out how we can turn the water on your base to softened water.

Improving qualities of life one water softener at a time

Posted by Rayne Water

home water systems, our water softeners can truly improve the quality of life with hard water. Hard water is a common problem that more than 85% of American households are trying to live with. As water moves through soil and rock, it dissolves very small amounts of minerals and holds them in solution.  Hard water is a result of the dissolved minerals calcium, magnesium, and manganese. Hard water causes quite a list of issues for homeowners; soap scum in sinks and bathtubs, bathtub rings, spots on dishes or shower doors, reduced foaming and cleaning abilities of soaps and detergents, dingy and yellowed clothes with soapy residues that require extra rinsing to remove, clogged pipes from buildup of minerals, increased water heating costs from buildup of minerals, reducing efficiency of water heaters, and possible skin infections from bacteria trapped in pores underneath soap scum.
With a water softener, these annoying issues are eliminated and the savings are immediate. For a low cost of one of our water softeners, you could potentially make back that money just from lowering the energy costs hard water required. The higher energy requirements meant that you could have been spending additional money when you could have partnered with us to install an energy-efficient water system. A recent independent laboratory study by Battelle Memorial Institute states that soft water produced better function, efficiency, extended life, and appearance. “There were no clogged pipes or water lines. The appliances used significantly less energy to operate. The appliances and plumbing lasted longer and needed fewer repairs. There were no water spots, tarnish, or stains to be cleaned away. Specifically, the water heaters using soft water had operating costs 47% less than those water heaters used with hard water. Even the most energy efficient water heater on the market was 10% more efficient with softened water.” Furthermore, eventually pipes can become completely clogged, requiring expensive replacement of an entire plumbing system. Of all the savings in a study of Chicago motels, the largest percentage was registered in the area of plumbing repair costs.
Time for a water softener yet? We think so, too. Contact us today so that you can start to enjoy the little things in life. Your hair, skin, and clothing will feel and look better. You pipes will work better, as will your appliances. The combination of health and financial benefits make our water softeners worth the investment and definitely worth the savings in the long run.

A Hard Water Experiment Gone Wrong

Posted by Rayne Water

Rayne of Irvine, we like to think of ourselves as experts in the field of hard and soft water. On our website, you will find an informational video of an experiment that went “all wrong.” No, not the experiment itself, but rather the outcome of the hard water. We know that our neighbors here in the Southwest deal with hard water on a daily basis. But we also know that with a Rayne of Irvine water softener the struggles of hard water disadvantages is over and you will start living differently in your home.
The purpose of the experiment is just one piece of the puzzle – to show how soft water reacts better with less soap and detergent to clean your clothing properly than when you use it in hard water. Cost comparisons are often an easy way for consumers to make decisions about purchases, rentals, and change in general. The experiment begins with two flasks. In one flask, hard water, and the other flask contains softened water from Rayne of Irvine. Three drops of a pure soap (like that which a doctor would use) are added to each flask. After being shaken, the hard water does not create suds, but rather a gray color. The soft water reacts better to the soap, creating suds in the clear water. With only a few drops of soap, the soft water would be ready to clean. But hard water requires much more soap or detergent to clean clothing properly, and often creates a dull color on your whites or lighter colored clothing.
Other cost incentives for softened water come from facts from experts all over. According to a study from the Battelle Memorial Institute, “appliances and plumbing in soft water lasted longer and needed fewer repairs. There were no water spots, tarnish, or stains to be cleaned away. Specifically, the water heaters using soft water had operating costs 47% less than those water heaters used with hard water. Even the most energy efficient water heater on the market was 10% more efficient with softened water. Another segment of the study compared showerheads. Those being used with hard water lost 75% of the flow rate in less than 18 months – and in some cases only had six tiny holes left open to spray water, while showerheads used with soft water maintained a brilliant luster, full flow, and good-as-new performance. Water softeners also were shown to reduce a home’s carbon footprint by over 14% – just on water heating.” Likewise, our water softener systems will significantly reduce the amount of soap, detergents and cleaners you use – by as much as 80% less!

Between savings and convenience, a water softener from Rayne of Irvine could be the perfect addition to your home.

Impress Your Guests with Your Water

Posted by Rayne Water

It’s that time of year again…the holidays are upon us!  For many, this is the busiest time of the year.  From shopping for holiday gifts to baking meals and holiday treats, it’s easy to have a jam packed day every single day of the week!  For a lot of folks, the holiday time also means lots of company.  Whether it’s family coming home for a week around Christmas, entertaining with holiday parties, or just getting ready for friends who will stop in for a quick visit, there is much to do.
If you live in an area that has hard water, like the majority of U.S. citizens do, you might consider the quality of your water before your holiday company arrives.  Hard water is simply water that has excess minerals in it, usually calcium and magnesium, and those minerals build up over time on any surface that the water comes in contact with.  This includes bathroom sinks, tubs, and showers, as well as dishes and even your own skin or hair when taking a shower.
If you want your house in tip-top shape for your holiday visitors, you will probably find yourself spending extra time cleaning those rooms in the house, such as the bathrooms, that are high traffic areas and easily get dirty.  If you have hard water, your task will be that much more difficult because you will have the mineral buildup on the sink, toilet, tub, and shower to clean off.  Once these items come in contact with your hard water again, however, the excess minerals will begin to accumulate, meaning that you’ll be cleaning it all over again very shortly.
If you have overnight guests during the holidays, they will also be using the shower and possibly your laundry facilities.  With either of these, they will find that your hard water leaves them with skin, hair, and clothes that just don’t feel clean, or at least dry and itchy.  This is because hard water does not clean as effectively as soft water due to its high mineral content.
So, even though you’re busy with other holiday preparations, you owe it to yourself to check out the quality of your water.  Start by having a water test completed by a local water treatment company and if it is determined to be hard, educate yourself on what water softener options are available to you.  A whole house water softener system will save you some stress this holiday season and make your life easier all year long!
