All in all, we think you’ll agree with the many other folks living with hard water, and that you will love the life changes that softened water can bring.

It’s not only going to make you look and feel better on the outside, you’ll actually be happier with more time to spend doing things you love rather than cleaning and scrubbing anything around the house that your hard water touches.  A recent article from Homesteading Freedom lists 13 reasons to install a home water softener and here are some of our favorites:

Is your Drinking Water Refreshing or Distasteful?

Posted by Rayne Water

There isn’t much better than a tall, cold glass of water as one of nature’s natural refreshments. Although, that delicious, refreshing glass of drinking water can quickly turn into something else entirely, if the taste or smell is “off” or just plain yucky. Water should never taste bad, but there are times when the taste just isn’t quite right; so, what takes our drinking water from refreshing to distasteful? There are several reasons why your drinking water could start tasting or smelling funky, let’s take a look at the different tastes and/or smells you might experience and their possible culprits.

As a general rule, if you notice the taste or smell of your drinking water coming from all of your faucets, the problem is most likely found in the main water supply. If the smell or taste goes away after running the water for a few minutes, then the problem will most likely be found within your home’s plumbing system itself. If the problem is originating from only specific faucets, then the problem is most likely with the fixtures or pipes supplying those faucets. The best way to determine what is in your drinking water and causing the specific odor or taste you are experiencing, is to have your water tested by a local water company. They should be able to determine what is in your water and can offer advice on what water filtration systems are available to filter out the contaminants. Drinking water should never have a funky odor or taste, but if yours does, give us a call and let us help you find the root cause of the problem and install a solution that will fit your needs.]]>

Posted by Rayne Water

Whether you’re new to the Ventura, California area or you’ve lived here your whole life, unless you have researched and read water quality report after water quality report, it’s a good possibility that you have no clue about the quality of the local drinking water. We can help! Choosing a local business means choosing knowledge – you can feel confident that your local business knows about the area, and it’s particular strengths and weaknesses. Generic drinking water companies know what makes good water, but do they have any idea about the quality of your specific tap water, groundwater, water reserves, drought updates or what the most common contaminates in your water is. Supporting your local businesses means a lot to them – and your community – for many reasons. One of those reasons is because local businesses are experts on the local area. This local knowledge benefits both the business and the consumer. According to a recent article from Independent Business, some of the most important reasons to buy from a local business include local character and prosperity; community businesses deserve some economic advantages over those not in your community. Another reason is for community well-being. Local businesses help sustain town centers, link neighborhoods and neighbors and often contribute back to the local causes within the community. You’ll also be keeping dollars in the local economy and help your neighborhood businesses thrive with your patronage. As local business make money, they also tend to give back to the community which in turn benefits their residents. Local businesses also provide jobs and wages for community residents.
