Water Softener Brookfield

The water supplied to your Brookfield home is sourced from 22 ground water wells. As water flows from the wells into your home, it will pick up both natural and artificial minerals and contaminants. One of the most common concerns in the area is hard water.

Hard water is a common concern across the entire state of Wisconsin and Brookfield is no exception. Specifically, Brookfield has a water hardness level of 23-24 grains of hardness. A water softener helps to bring soft water into your home to help eliminate white/chalky buildup that you maybe be noticing among other water issues.

A common question we often hear is “do I need a water softener if I’m on city water?” City water does not mean you have soft water. Several homeowners choose to keep their water softener when they are on city water to help eliminate buildup on dishes, fixtures, appliances, and plumbing, in addition to other benefits.
