The Best Water Treatment SystemsAccording to the Arizona Water Quality Association, the water supply in most of Arizona is considered “hard.”

Hard water is measured by the amount of calcium and magnesium bicarbonates in the water.

If you find that your dishes have spots coming out of the dishwasher, your toilet has a water stain ring, and your appliances and plumbing fixtures have scale deposits, your home likely has a hard water problem.

The U.S. Geological Survey  shows that Arizona has high amounts of calcium carbonate in its water supply.

Since hard water deposits can be damaging to your plumbing system, often, Arizonans will look to water softeners and water treatment systems to solve their hard water problems.  

What are the Best Water Softeners for Arizona Water?

Utilizing our many years of experience installing water treatment systems, servicing, maintaining, and repairing these units, and getting customer feedback, here is what we believe to be the best water softener for arizona water:

B&R Industries manufactures the Ultima water conditioning system right in Phoenix, made specifically for Arizona water.  They have been in Arizona since 1985.

The one obvious benefit of the Ultima Water Softener is its manufacturing right in town.

If a part ever goes bad, you can pick one up right in town.  If the unit goes out, it can be easily serviced by many local plumbers in phoenix that recommend the Ultima Water Softener.

Why buy a mass produced product from a hardware store when you have a water softener manufacturer right in your town?

B&R Industries also manufactures additional water conditioning products such as reverse osmosis systems, water filters, and carbon filters.  These units work very well in tandem with an Ultima Water Softener.

H2O Concepts is also a company that manufactures their unit right in Phoenix, AZ.  

Unlike a water softener, H2O Concepts systems don’t use salt.  They are a salt free system.  These units are designed to remove chemicals in the water, make the taste better, and remove odors.

Water softeners don’t have the capability to remove chlorine or other chemicals.  A softener can only remove the minerals from the water.  A Water Treatment System (also known as a Water Conditioner) is designed to remove the chemicals in the water making your home water supply more desirable to drink.

Arizona Water Softener Recommendations 2017

There are two main things that people notice with their water in Phoenix.  

  1. Scale build-up on their plumbing fixtures and dishes
  2. Chlorine odor and dry skin from the chlorine.

What is the best way to solve these two problems?

Install a water softener to remove the minerals causing scale build-up, and a carbon filter (right in line with your softener) to remove the chlorine.  

This setup is the most recommended way to treat your Arizona water supply.  

These products are available from B&R Industries, right here in town.
