Water Softener Richfield

All the water supplied to Richfield comes from private wells. Before water enters our homes, the water will flow through glacial deposits (sand, gravel, and clay). These natural formations have minerals that cause hard water.  The water in Richfield is particularly high in calcium and magnesium due to the glacial sediments in our area. Richfield homeowners often notice scale/buildup on faucets or dishes. Water softeners for Richfield are designed to help this problem to replace calcium and magnesium with sodium. In turn you’ll have longer-lasting appliances and less build-up in your pipes…not to mention smoother skin and softer hair.

Richfield Groundwater Protection Program

This major undertaking is in motion to protect Richfield’s groundwater supply. This project will not affect the quality of water. Therefore, homeowners will still see minerals and contaminants in their home’s water that will require a water softener.
