Water Treatment Department

One of the realities of living in the Texas Panhandle is dealing with hard water. The US Geological Survey rates very hard water as that which has more than 180 mg of calcium carbonate in a single liter. Amarillo can go to 280 mg per liter, making it super hard. Hard water causes spots on dishes and helps to build soap scum on bathtubs and showers. This hard liquid can clog up shower heads and aerator faucets. Hard water can also dry out a person’s skin, is harsh on clothing, and can affect the taste of beverages like coffee and tea. This hard liquid can even build up scale in water heaters and boilers, driving up energy costs and shortening the life of the equipment. Another concern that many Panhandle homeowners have is bacteria in the supply. While most municipal systems treat for bacteria, that does not stop them from getting into the supply. What can you do about Panhandle water? With treatment systems such as softeners and reverse osmosis, you can enjoy softer, bacteria-free water.

Softeners are used to treat the hard Panhandle water with systems that use reverse osmosis. This softener will give you more hydrated skin after taking your bath or shower. Your towels and linens will also be softer. The amount of detergent you use in the wash will also go down since you will need to use less with this softer liquid. You will prolong the life of your pipes, appliances, and equipment that use water.

Using reverse osmosis, you will get the highest level filtration to create pure drinking water, which means no more expense for so many bottled waters. The food you cook will also taste a lot better without those heavy minerals. You and your family will enjoy better health since there will be less salt and heavy minerals in the water you consume.
