As we speak, hardness minerals (such as calcium and magnesium) are slowly building up in your home on everything your water touches.

This includes  things like your water heater, your dish washer, your coffee maker, your faucets, and even your skin…

It doesn’t matter if your water is from a well, or from the city supply, most homes in the US have hard water.

Few people know, but you can only remove hardness minerals from your water through ion exchange, which is what a water softener does.

Water filters are built to remove other contaminants, but not hardness minerals…

The EcoWater Softener is our best water softener. It is a whole home softening and chlorine removal system.

EcoWater Softener Cutaway

EcoWater All-in-One Water Softener System

Here’s what you can expect from an EcoWater whole home water softener:

  • Removes hardness minerals and sediment that make your skin dry and prematurely age your expensive appliances
  • Removes chlorine taste and odor by filtering your water with a built in coconut-shell carbon filter
  • Eliminates spots on silverware, glasses and dishes
  • Prevents scale build-up on pipes, faucets and water using appliances
  • Customizable to meet additional water treatment needs you may have

Financing options available!

How do you know if you have hard water?

washing machine element damaged by hard water

This is a washing machine heating element that’s been exposed to hard water

Here are some telltale signs…

  1. Your skin is dry and itchy and your hair is dull
  2. Your drinking glasses & stemware come out of the dishwasher with spots
  3. Your faucets and fixtures have a crust that’s hard to remove
  4. Your water heater takes forever to heat up, or you’ve prematurely had to replace or repair it
  5. Your whites are more like 50 shades of gray and your brights have lost their luster

What are the Benefits of Soft Water?

Softer Skin & Hair

Hard water minerals bond with skin and hair leaving a nasty film. Kind of like that limescale on your faucet! An EcoWater softener removes hardness minerals naturally so you can stop spending money on lotions & skin care products as your body becomes free of buildup!

Extend Appliance Life

Dishwashers, washing machines, water heaters (tankless, electric, & gas), ice makers, boiler systems, & humidifiers all suffer when your water contains hardness minerals. Their useful life may be greatly reduced because they are not designed to endure hard water.

It Can Pay for Itself

You can save up to 75% on cleaning products, as they are more effective and less are needed. You can also save up to 40% on energy costs related to your water-using appliances, and plus they last longer. Its harder to estimate the amount of savings you get when you no longer have to waste time scrubbing that scale off your shower doors, faucets, fixtures, dishes, & glassware.

No Hassle, No Obligation

Had a new water softener and iron filter installed. Install was quick, clean and Nick took the time to give a full rundown of the system and answer questions. Very happy with the equipment and service I received.

Nick came by to install the water filter for us and did an amazing job. Fast, friendly and did a great job. It was great that he took time to share his own personally experience with the same filtration system his family.

Nick at Tri County Water Conditioning was on point. We purchased a EcoWater reverse osmosis filtration system along with a new faucet for the kitchen sink. Nick installed all new plumbing for our kitchen along with the new faucet & reverse osmosis system.Highly recommend Nick at Tri County Water Conditioning, he was very professional & friendly and very reasonably priced for the amount of work we had done. No more bottled water, thank you Nick!!

I can’t say enough about the quality experience I’ve had with Tri County Water Conditioning. Chris has done some maintenance work on my water softener and more recently Nick and Andy worked on plumbing repairs. They all “attacked” the work with enthusiasm, educated me about what they did and what to look for in the future, and left me with the confidence of knowing who to call the next time the need arises. These guys are awesome!

New whole house softener. Greg explained all the options and made it a low stress decision with no pressure. Nick did a great job with the install, hauling our old softener away and working around existing plumbing. I’d work with them again!

We had nothing but great service with Tri county water who placed a new softener, iron filter and reverse osmosis drinking water for us. It’s working great and Jason came back out to retest our water to make sure it was the best quality. They all have been reliable and great at checking in. Definitely recommended!

Frequent Questions

How do I choose a water softener?

Softeners aren’t one size fits all. That’s where we can start to help you. Based on the size of your household and your typical water usage, we can determine which softener size you’ll need.

Sizing is an important step, as it ensures there is enough capacity to handle your needs  and not so much capacity that it creates waste.

From there, you can choose additional features to make your life easier or to meet additional water treatment needs based on the results of your water test.

How much does a water softener cost?

This will depend on the size, features, and your particular installation. The best way to get pricing is to call so that you can get it properly sized.

Pricing includes the new equipment, the installation and proper setup, so that it meets your expectations.

A water softener can potentially pay for itself over time with savings on detergents, soaps, and cleaning supplies, reductions in energy usage and the extended life of your water-using appliances. Water heaters tend to suffer the most in hard water, and they are expensive to replace.

Why not just buy a softener from a big box store or online retailer?

Big box stores sell softeners that are made with lower quality parts to reduce the price, even if you get name brand.

You will still have to hire a local plumber to do the install, unless you are quite knowledgeable in plumbing.

It can be difficult to get any warranty work done from a big box store, and often there is no warranty from online retailers.

In either case, you will usually just get referred to a local plumber who may not necessarily have knowledge of your specific equipment.

So essentially you are on your own once it reaches your house.

What are the next steps?

You send us your contact info through one of the forms on this page, or give us a call directly.

We ask you a few questions to help get you the right equipment so you get what you expect from your water.

If you’re not sure what is wong with your water. We will schedule a convenient time to come out and test it for you (free of charge), and if it looks good, we can leave it at that.

However, if you already know you have hard water, or the test shows you do, we can give you a price quote on the properly sized water softener.

If you’re satisfied, we schedule a convenient time to come out and install and set up your new water softner.

What is a Dare to Compare Guarantee?

It is a guarantee that for 30 days after you purchase an EcoWater softener, if you find an equal or better softener (regarless of price) with the same technical performance specs, warranty, consumer protection etc. (for fairness of comparison), you will get your money back and keep the system free.

In less words, EcoWater is confident that they provide the best softener with the best guarantees, so you don’t have to worry about your purchase.

What is covered by the Warranty?

This depends on the model and features you get.

To keep it simple, it’s best just to ask us when you are choosing your softener.

How do I maintain my softener?

You’ll be able to monitor your softener’s usage and the salt levels via the mobile app. When the salt gets low the app will notify you. Then you just purchase softener salt and refill it.

If you prefer the less manual route, you can schedule a salt delivery with us. We’ll deliver the salt and fill your softener for you.

Frequency of salt refill really depends on your household’s water usage and the efficiency of the softener (EcoWater are extremely efficient). In an average household, a softener can go 2 to 4 months on a refill.

What happens if I need help with my softener?

Just give us a call, our direct number is here on this page and most of the pages of our site. You will reach a local technician who can answer your questions, or you will be able to schedule us to come out and help.

Why should I choose to work with you?

Because we care. Try and get that from an online retailer or a big box store.

We would be proud to be your trusted advisor and go-to for your water treatment needs, to keep you and your family healthy and happy.
