What Exactly is Hard Water?

Hard Water Causing Problems? We Offer Home Water Softener Installations in Cincinnati


Carbon & Charcoal Filters Cincinnati - Ohio Valley Pure Water - happy-bath

Hard water can wreak havoc on your skin, plumbing, appliances, and more. When water contains high levels of calcium and magnesium, it becomes hard water. Hard water can create several problems in your house such as clogged pipes, soap not dissolving correctly, and leaving water spots behind. At Ohio Valley Pure Water, we can install a water softener that will remove the minerals that cause the water to be hard. If hard water goes left untreated, it can create a scale buildup within your pipes and water appliances. The buildup can even begin to reduce the efficiency in your water heater causing an increase in energy expenses. 


Signs You Need a Water Softener

There are numerous signs a household needs a water softener installed. At Ohio Valley Pure Water, we’ve outlined the three most common issues our clients have before they have a water softener installed. 

Dry, Itchy Skin 

Typically, hard water can cause the skin to become extra dry and itchy because of the amount of calcium and magnesium in the water. What’s happening is that this water isn’t nourishing your skin, it just dries it out. The minerals in the water will just settle on your skin leaving an irritating residue that can’t be washed away with soap. 

Dirty Dishes

Do your dishes have spots on them after they’ve been washed? A sign that you have hard water is that you’ll notice white spots on your glassware and dishes. In addition, the appearance of soap scum in your kitchen and bathroom will also signify that you have hard water. 

Plumbing Problems 

If you’ve noticed you’ve been calling the plumber more than usual; the problem may lie within the water. Hard water can easily damage steel pipes due to the minerals that are found in hard water. If you’ve noticed your pipes are beginning to form leaks, it’s recommended to get your water tested to determine if you need a water softener installed.

Frequently Asked Questions About Water Softeners

What is Hard Water?

Hard water is water that contains an appreciative quantity of dissolved minerals like calcium and magnesium. As water makes its way through the ground and into the waterways, it picks up minerals like chalk, lime, and high levels of calcium and magnesium. The more minerals that are dissolved in the water the harder the water becomes. Most families in the Cincinnati tri-state, eight county area have very hard water (9-14 grains hard) like Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, Clermont County, Dearborn County, and others like it. Some have extremely hard water (over 14 grains hard) like in Butler County, Warren County, Loveland, Lebanon, Trenton, and Monroe.

How can I find out my water hardness?

Simply call your local water department where you pay your water bill. Just ask, "What is my water hardness in grains per gallon (G.P.G.)?

What are the benefits of owning a water softener?
  • Studies show that going from water that is 7 grains hard to -0- grains hard will save the average family $100.00 a month or more.
  • Save up to 90% on all your soap and cleaning products like laundry soaps, bar soaps, shampoos, dish soaps, liquid soaps, and liquid cleaning products.
  • Skin and hair will be softer and smoother with every shower. You will use less lotion because hard water dries your skin so you will have a better skin complexion with soft water. Clothes are cleaner and will last up to 33% longer.
  • Soft water uses up to 33% less energy in water heaters. Soft water saves you money on your plumbing pipes and appliances like water heaters, washing machines, dish washers, toilets, faucets, and more. Soft water prevents scale buildup so they last longer.
How does a water softener work?

The resin beads in the water softener system removes calcium, magnesium, and other minerals that make the water hard as it goes through the water softener. During the ion exchange process, the hardness ions in the water are replaced with sodium (salt) ions in the resin bed, resulting in soft water. As the resin beads in the water softener become coated with calcium and magnesium ions, their capacity to soften hard water decreases. Every so often, salt water is backwashed over the resin beads sending the hard water ions down the drain and putting the water softener back to a soft water state.

What kind of salt should I use in your water softener?

A clean pellet or nugget style salt is recommended. Other types of salts will also work but are not the most efficient. These salt pellets are sold at most all grocery, hardware, and home improvement stores.

What if I'm on a sodium-restricted diet?

If that is the case, you should not be drinking tap water either. Why? Tap water has sodium in it also because the county/city has to soften it to a certain degree before it comes into your home. All people regardless if they are on a sodium-restricted diet or not should be drinking alkaline reverse osmosis water which removes up to 95% of the 100% of contaminants in water. Go to FAQ reverse osmosis for more information.

What do you think about water softeners that do not use salt?

Magnetic water conditioning units have been on the market for years and are not a new product. You will not find this kind of product sold by any water treatment dealer in the Cincinnati area. Why? Because your water hardness has to be less than 7 grains hard (moderately hard) to be effective. If you lived down South, then this would be a great idea. Many of our customers have bought a no salt water softener before on-line until they realize it didn’t work. Great idea if you live in the right place.

How much water does each backwash or regeneration cycle use?

About as much as it takes to wash a load of laundry.

How much electricity does the water softener use?

As much as a digital alarm clock.

Where do you install a water softener?

The best location would be by your main shutoff coming into the home. For most families that would be in the basement. That way every faucet in your home will have soft water. Note: the water softener should not be installed in a location where it can freeze. Note: the water softener also comes with a standard by-pass valve when watering the grass.

What is considered standard installation for a water softener?

Water line that is 1/2 or 3/4, installed in the unfinished area of your basement by your main water shutoff, no more than 25 feet of backwash line and an electrical outlet no more than 5 feet from the water softener.

How do your water softeners compare to the national brand name systems found in the Yellow pages?

If you are asking about the quality of the water softeners, our customers who have owned both have said, they are the same except our prices are around 60-75% less than the national brand names. Also, they like our up front and honesty on our warranty. NO SMALL PRINT OR DISCLAIMER. Why? As a wholesale company we do not have commissioned sales reps, commissioned installers, national advertising, large retail office space, and expensive overhead. That’s why we are “Awarded Best in Cincinnati” for water purification equipment by the US Commerce Association, BBB A+ rating, and Angie’s List A+ rating. We are not the biggest in Cincinnati but we are the best when it comes to overall price, quality, and service.

How do your water softeners compare to the ones sold at Home Depot and Lowes?

If you are asking about price, our customers who have owned both have said, our prices are about the same but our quality and service exceeds anything they offer. Why? Most people know that Home Depot and Lowes do not service the water softeners that they sell, they refer you to sub-contractors that in many cases have no idea how to service what they are installing because they have been sub-contracting with them for months not years. Keep in mind, you can’t call the BBB and ask, “How many complaints does Home Depot or Lowes have on the water softeners they have sold?" Also, the BBB has no way to report on the sub-contractors that Home Depot and Lowes may use so you are left in the dark.

Why do you charge a $49.00 estimate fee when your competitors don’t?

Our competitors offer free estimates or free water testing because their sales reps are on commission only which is usually around 25%. With their inflated prices they can afford to offer this. Free water testing is a ploy to get in to your home because everything they test for you can get from your local water department with a simple phone call. We do apply the $49.00 to the purchase price if installed within 30 days.

What makes water softeners different from each other?

Five things: size, resin, carbon, valve, and warranty.

  • Size: The amount of resin in the filter bed will determine the size (how often it backwashes) which will determine how much salt and water it uses. For examples, our in-stock water softeners come in a 9x48 32,000 grains (1 cubic foot) or 10x54 48,000 grains (1.5 cubic feet). Other size water softeners can be special ordered.
  • Resin: The type of resin will determine if it is manufactured for chlorinated or non-chlorinated water. 8% Cross-link resin is formulated for cistern/well water that has no chlorine in the water. 10% Cross-link resin is formulated for the city/country water that has chlorine or chloramines in it. If you use 8% Cross-link on chlorinated water, it will ruin the resin within a year and void your warranty.
  • Carbon: Does your water softener contain carbon and if it does, what type of carbon is it, how often and how much is it to replace? Is the carbon mixed with the resin or is the carbon in its own filter housing? The reason you want a whole house carbon block filter is because chlorine dries out skin and hair, colored clothing is able to stay fresh and new, not losing pigment or softness, and it reduces the health risks of breathing in dangerous chlorine gas in showers and during baths. It also removes any odor or smells in the water which are NOT removed by water softeners. 
  • Valve: Is it a timer, digital, or metered? The timer valves is the least expensive option of the valves because it backwashes every 2 to 3 days whether it needs to or not. The digital valve is the more expensive because there are no moving parts. When the digital valve has a problem you just simply replace the mother board, which is very expensive. The metered valve is the most popular because it counts the gallons of water first before backwashing. Also, they are very cost-effective to service when you do have a problem.
  • Warranty: We offer an honest 10-year warranty on everything except for the metered valve. The metered valve comes with a 5-year warranty. The parts would be FREE but the customer would always pay the labor charge to replace or fix the parts. Nobody offers a lifetime warranty including parts and labor or a lifetime warranty on parts only, so don't be sold by the hype. Nothing last forever!
I have additional questions that you did not list?

Sorry, we do our best to keep our FAQ page as short as we can. You are welcome to e-mail (sales@ovpw.net) or call us with your additional questions.

What is the manufacturer warranty with your Water Softeners?

We offer an honest 10-year warranty on everything except for the metered valve. The metered valve comes with a 5-year warranty. The parts would be FREE but the customer would always pay the labor charge to replace or fix the parts. Nobody offers a lifetime warranty including parts and labor or a lifetime warranty on parts only, so don't be sold by the hype. Nothing last forever!
