Water Softener Noblesville Near Me

What to do After Searching for “Water Softener Near Me”

Once it is determined that your home suffers from “Hard Water,” what do you do next? Most will grab a smartphone and Google “water softener near me.” When you do this, however, many links will send you to a DIY site, a box store, or a list of “Top Water Softeners in Your Area.” Once wading through those links, you will generally find local plumbing contractors experienced in installing and repairing water softeners. It is always good practice to obtain multiple estimates, so here’s what to look for when gathering information on a new water softener.

  1. How experienced is the plumber? Different cities require different permits and building codes; a professional plumber will know the area they work in and should know these like the back of their hand. Don’t be afraid to ask about these when obtaining an estimate.
  2. How much space is required, and where to put the equipment? Water softeners are typically installed off the main line from the street or well. They are meant to soften all the water in the home. The water softener and the brine tank are installed in a utility closet, basement, or wherever the water heater is located. There are circumstances where this differs, and an experienced plumber will be able to get you set up.
  3. What brands does the plumber carry? You may have researched online and maybe even watched videos on Youtube that rank different brands. Ask who your plumber works with and why. You will want to know the why, especially when maintaining the equipment. Every manufacturer differs slightly, and you need to know what brand is going into your home and what to do to maintain it. Water softeners require minimal maintenance besides salt for the brine tanks.
  4. How much is this going to cost? This varies widely depending on the scenario. If there is space for the water softener to be installed near the main feed line entering the home, then minimal plumbing is necessary to get the job done. However, if a new main needs to be run, relocated, or the water softener can not be installed next to the main, the time and materials used increase along with the costs. When getting an estimate, make sure to be upfront with the estimator. They aren’t going to know your home as well as you, and if they haven’t done work for you before, you may know something they don’t. A hidden wall, an addition that isn’t visible, anything you can think of. The more upfront you are, the more accurate the estimate will be, and it won’t lead to additional fees on your invoice.
