Frequently Asked Questions

What is hard water? How does it affect my home?

Hard water is deemed safe to drink and to use for cleaning however the harder water is, the more issues arise. Hard water problems can include:

• Bad taste
• Foul odor
• Dry skin and brittle hair
• Water stains in tubs and sinks
• Added strain on water using appliances
• Residue on dishes and in dishwasher
• Scale on faucets
• Build up in pipes that lead to clogs
• Stained or rough feeling laundry
• Decreased effectiveness of soap and cleaning products

When do I know I may need a water softener?

A few tell-tell signs that you are in need of a water softener is that your home’s water flow is low and you often see water spots on your dishes, glassware, sinks and showers. Very hard water has a bad smell and foul taste. Select Source will test your water’s hardness to determine what contaminants are in your local water source.

How effective is the Hygia+ system and how does it work?


Will it help preserve the life of my hot water heater and other appliances?

Absolutely. Using soft water in your home increases the life span of appliances such as water heaters, dish washer, washer, and even coffee pots. Water softeners remove hard minerals, and the treated water doesn’t leave behind scaly buildup that harms appliances. Also, softened water allows for less detergent usage, as well as running appliances at lower temperatures.


How will it affect my skin and hair?

Using soft water requires less soap and fewer rinses to achieve excellent results, meaning your hair will maintain its color and condition for much longer. Soft water also balances your hair’s pH level, so you’re left with silky smooth hair after every wash.
You’ll be less likely to clog your pores and dry out your skin, you won’t be as itchy and irritated, and you’ll be more likely to have the beautiful, clear skin you desire. Soft water is especially good for those who suffer from skin conditions such as sensitive skin, eczema, acne, or psoriasis.


Will my water taste like salt?

No it will not. A cup of water will contain less sodium than a glass of milk.

How long is the installation process?

Installation takes up to 2-4 hours.

Does it increase my water bill?

No, it does not. It does not affect your water bill. You and your family can continue the same usage without worrying about the water softener system causing an increase in price.

Does it affect my property value?

Installing a water softener in your home actually increases your property value up from $5,000 – $10,000. It pretty much pays for itself in the long-run.
