What are the benefits of a water softener? 

Water Softener

Getting rid of hard water.

Fortunately, installing a water softener can turn your hard water into gentle, soft water. Water softeners work on the principle of “ion exchange,” substituting sodium chloride (salt) for hard minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and iron. Walker Plumbing can help you find the right water softener for your home.

Hard water

Hard water can ruin your plumbing.

Hard water contains a high level of dissolved minerals. If you have hard water, you need a home water softener—not so much for health reasons but because hard water can create problems for your home’s plumbing system and water-using appliances. That’s because heated, dissolved hard-water minerals re-crystallize and form scale that eventually clogs plumbing.


  • Mineral Deposits
  • Soap Scum
  • Clogged Pipes
  • Appliances Are Wearing Out Quickly
