Frequently Asked Questions

What is hard water? How can I tell if I have hard water in my home?

Water hardness is determined by the number of dissolved minerals, specifically magnesium and calcium, in water. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the hardness level of water depends on the concentration of calcium carbonate (milligrams) present in a liter:
  • Soft: 0 to 60 mg/L
  • Moderately hard: 61 to 120 mg/L
  • Hard: 121 to 180 mg/L
  • Very hard: 180 + mg/L
If you notice signs like shower buildup, stiff laundry after washing, or frequent plumbing issues in your home, it may be an indication of hard water. If any of these issues resonate with you, Call Radiant to have your home’s water tested and softened by our expert plumbing crew.
When it comes to picking a water softener system for your Texas home, there are a few important things to keep in mind. Start by checking how hard your area’s water is, which directly affects how well the system works. Next, figure out how much water your family uses in a day, measured in gallons. This helps you calculate the daily grain capacity your softener needs. But, if all this seems a bit overwhelming, no worries – just give the folks at Radiant Plumbing and Air a call! Our skilled plumbers can not only set up a new water softener system at your home but also help you choose the right model. Plus, we’ll take care of all the paperwork with the city and county for the installation. Make your home feel softer in no time by reaching out to Radiant.
Just like many household appliances, home water softener systems require regular maintenance to ensure they last a long time. Homeowners can easily manage routine tasks such as refilling salt, conducting tests, and regular cleaning to keep their system operating at its best. You can rely on Radiant for regular maintenance, including system inspections and replacing worn-out components due to regular wear and tear. Despite the upkeep, the benefits a water softener brings to a home’s appliances are immeasurable. Properly maintained systems lead to cleaner dishes in the dishwasher and healthier skin after showers.
Several factors play a role in determining how long your water softener system will be able to keep the water flowing in your pipes a little cleaner. Factors like how often you use it, the quality of the system, and how well you maintain it can all affect how long it will last. Check out reviews and information from the manufacturer to get a better idea of the specific lifespan of your system. On average, though, if you’re a family of four living in Central Texas, you can expect your water softener system to last around 10 to 15 years.

Sure, you could take on the challenge yourself – after all, as our favorite train conductor says, “if you think you can!” But, let’s talk reality. You might find yourself making frequent trips to the hardware store, grabbing more parts than you actually need because you can never buy just one of anything it seems. And if you hit a snag, you’ll be pausing to watch a quick YouTube video just to get going again.

Here’s an alternative: Call Radiant, and we’ll be on our way to your Texas home in no time. Skip the hassle, and let us handle the installation. We’ll not only help you find the right solution for your family’s water needs but also assist with financing. So, while you’re enjoying the Cowboys on the big screen, we’ll be taking care of the hard work in your basement. Save yourself the effort and give us a call today.
