Sussex Water Softener

The Sussex water utility supplies water to area homes using several wells, water towers, and ground reservoirs. As water travels through these various areas, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and other substances. Although these typically do not have a negative impact on your health, a Sussex water softener is a great option to bring soft water into your home.

Sussex Hard Water

Sussex water has 17.5 grains of hardness on average. This number is a calculation of the minerals and contaminants that are in your water. Due to the hardness in your water, you may notice white chalky build-up on your fixtures, plumbing, and appliances.
