The #1 reason to have a water softener (in my opinion) YOUR SKIN!
The majority of water supplies here in the U.S. are perfectly safe to drink so I’ve decided to have my very first blog topic be on something that is near and dear to my heart; my skin.
#2 Reason to Have a Water Softener….Your Hair!!
I stayed at my girlfriends fabulous town house in Chicago over the weekend. I knew exactly what was happening as I rinsed my hair and I suddenly had hair that was resembling a wet S.O.S. pad on my head.
I did it!!! (With the help of a lot of water!)
Two days before the race one of my wise girlfriends/team mates texted me advising me to start drinking a lot of water for the next 2 days.

One day I opened up my water bill and noticed in fine print: The level of radium in your water supply is elevated. Yikes! Radium? That is some scary stuff, isn’t it??
Today I got a phone call from someone stating something that I’ve heard before. Every time I hear this same comment, I can’t believe that I’m hearing it. Seriously??

I receive at least 3-5 phone calls a week asking about the”saltless water softeners.” I can’t think of a better way to sum up that question by repeating the idiom “it is too good to be true.”

One of my number one jobs is to make sure that homeowners understand the importance of having a water softener in their home.
My love affair with private well water
I get panic phone calls from people who are about to move from the big city out to the suburbs frequently. They are moving from city water to a private well. Usually it’s us girls calling, completely freaking out.
Should I really be drinking this?
Every day we hear about new studies that have some how found something else that is potentially harmful to us.
More salt for the driveway!
Anyone who lives in Wisconsin can probably admit to using their water softener salt as “multi-purpose” salt. In other words, it works quite nicely on icy sidewalks & driveways.
Rotten Eggs in your Water?
I spent a long period of time today on the phone talking one of our clients off the ledge they were ready to jump off of. She had just purchased a new home that was supported by a private well & had never run the water in the home before they closed on the property.
