Water Softener Lake Geneva

Beautiful Lake Geneva, surrounded by history, community, and of course, water! While we are talking about the lakes nearby, we are also talking about the water that flows into your home. Homes in Lake Geneva deserve to have the best water, but the water sourced in the area tends to be hard water.

Hard water in Lake Geneva causes several issues for area homes including appliance failure, white/chalky buildup on fixtures and plumbing, and other issues. A water softener from Guthrie & Frey will allow you to bring soft water into your home and minimize these issues.

Benefits of having a Lake Geneva Water Softener

Several Lake Geneva homeowners choose to have a water softener installed in their home for many reasons, including:

  • Shinier dishes and glassware
  • Less soap usage (ie: dish soap, laundry soap, shampoo, etc.)
  • Softer skin and hair
  • Longer appliance life span
  • No more buildup on plumbing

The Effects of an Iron Filter

  • No more iron stains
  • No more musty taste or bad odors.
  • Protection against rust build-up and corrosion
  • Longer product life and improved performance.

“Wow! We have just had a wonderful experience buying a new water softener and iron filtration for our home. First off the young man who came out to the house to do the water test and make an assessment was friendly as can be and answered all of my questions in an easy to understand manner. There was no hard sell. He explained the pros and cons of different options and told me what the results would be. We enjoyed his visit so much we decided to purchase with your company. I’m thrilled to report the installation was wonderful as well! The guys who installed were super friendly, lots of smiles and great even though I had three barking dogs. LOL. They worked hard, answered my questions and cleaned up so well after they were here I couldn’t even tell what occurred. Thank you again, we will definitely recommend you to all of our friends and neighbors. Also a quick thumbs up to the nice people in the office who were great to work with as well. It’s so nice to speak with upbeat friendly people on the phone.”
