Water Softeners

Installation

Standard water softener installations include a main shut off valve and a soft water hose valve near the softener. The hose valve provides soft water for car washing, windows and any other outdoor event that may require soft water.

Pre-plumbed (Loop): A pre-plumbed water softener loop usually includes:

  • A “loop” of water tubing to attach the water softener/conditioner to provide water in and water out
  • A waste fitting to attach the drain to dispose of regeneration rinse water
  • An electrical plug to provide power to the system

No loop – no problem: Our Master Service Technicians routinely install water softener/conditioners in homes that do not have loops. These installations commonly cost no more than installations on a loop unless additional plumbing is necessary. Call for a FREE no obligation estimate. The requirements are the same as systems on loops:

  • Water tubing to attach to the softener / conditioner – hard water in and soft water out
  • A waste line to a drain to dispose of regeneration and rinse water
  • An electrical connection to provide power to the system
  • No loop systems are generally installed in the garage, however, depending on the plumbing and available space, many of them are installed out doors
