Smart Solutions for 4 Common Home Water Problems

Posted by Rayne Water

Whether it’s for drinking or for everyday household tasks, water is an integral part of our lives. Yet, there are many problems that can arise when trying to get and maintain the best water for you and your family. Here, we look at smart solutions for common home water problems.

1. Hard water

If you live in California or Arizona, you’re likely familiar with this common water problem, and it’s prevalent in other areas of the country as well. Left untreated, hard water can cause discoloration of fixtures and appliances, dull hair and skin issues, and spotting on dishes, among other problems. The easiest way to resolve hard water plumbing issues is to install a water softener. Water softeners in Phoenix and other major cities are becoming increasingly popular for their benefits. Since every home is different and every family has different needs, it’s important to talk to one of our experts to find out the best fit for your situation.

2. Rust stains and iron

If you see orange colored stains on washed clothing, or rusty residue on fixtures such as sinks, toilets, and baths, your water likely has a high iron content. This not only affects the appearance of whatever it touches but can also cause permanent damage to water-using appliances such as dishwashers. Solve this nuisance by installing a whole house water conditioner which helps to reduce heavy metals and protect appliances.

3. Bad tasting or smelling water

There’s nothing pleasant about pouring a glass of water, expecting a clean and refreshing drink, and being turned off by the taste or foul smell. Since this can be caused by many different sources, it’s important to have a professional water test done to determine the root of the problem. An easy fix in most cases of this rotten egg smell is the purchase and installation of a Reverse Osmosis drinking water system, leaving you with great tasting water that is safe to drink and free of contaminants.

4. Local water regulation

If you live in an area with a water softener ban, yet you have hard water or another water problem listed above, a smart alternative to a softener is our Portable Exchange (PE) Tank Service. Our plumbing technicians simply bring tanks of softened water to your home at predetermined intervals with no maintenance, materials, or electricity needed.

No matter what water problem your home is plagued with, our plumbing service has a solution that can help. Give us a call today to schedule free water analysis and we’ll soon have you hooked up with the best water treatment solution to meet your needs.

PE Tank Service: The Smart Solution For Water Conservation AND Hard Water

Posted by Rayne Water

Water conservation has long been a hot topic among environmentalists and politicians alike. This is especially true in California, where densely populated areas combined with adverse environmental conditions have made potable  water scarcer than ever. It’s no surprise then, that the water conservation topic leads the headlines wherever you look.

New water conservation laws

Over the last few years, many municipalities and water authorities have taken the problem of conservation efforts into their own hands and begun water saving programs to help make a difference. More recently, however, the state government has stepped in and passed new laws that make certain water saving measures mandatory, not optional.

On a personal level, new California water conservation laws provide regulation regarding how many gallons of water each individual can use on a daily basis – the current goal is to reduce water usage to 55 gallons per person per day within the next few years, with another 5 gallon per day reduction coming in the future. In addition, outdoor water use by individuals and communities will be regulated. Regardless of how you feel about governmental control over such things, the bottom line is that water conservation affects us all and we should take it seriously.

Water saving solutions

We believe water conservation efforts can start at home, and that includes what type of water softener you use. Traditional water softeners are salt-based and can be harmful to the environment due to chemical contamination of waste water, a problem that is leading many localities to enact water softener bans. With much of California having hard water, however, there is still a high demand for water softening solutions. One treatment for hard water is a Portable Exchange (PE) Tank Service.

Rayne technicians simply deliver tanks of clean and soft water to your home or business with a frequency depending on your usage. The equipment does tanks do not require electricity or a drain, meaning no salty waste water gets discharged into the environment. When empty, the tanks are returned to a state-of-the-art facility where they are regenerated under controlled conditions. With little installation or maintenance, these tanks are an easy solution. 

PE Tank Service is an excellent solution for not only preventing waste water contamination but also conserving water overall. Give us a call today to see if this service makes sense for your home or business and together, we can lead the water conservation efforts in our own communities.
