What is Hard Water?

Hard water is a common problem for Greater Lehigh Valley and eastern Pennsylvania homes and businesses. While hard water isn't unsafe, it can cause a wide range of problems, from dry skin to soap scum.

Hard water has a high mineral content, which can cause problems for your appliances, plumbing, clothes and even your skin. It typically develops when groundwater flows through limestone, increasing levels of magnesium, calcium and other minerals in the water. Hard water can occur in both wells and public water supplies.

At Long's EcoWater Systems, we provide hard water treatment services to soften well and city water.

Hard Water Treatment for Public Water

People often think hard water only occurs in wells, but it's just as likely for public water to be hard. We recommend the EcoWater Water Refiner System to treat hard public water.

The EcoWater Water Refiner System is the next generation of water softeners. The refiner removes hardness, chlorine and sediment and improves water taste using half of the salt of other softening systems. The EcoWater Refiner has earned these agency seals: ISO 9001, 2 Gold Seals of Approval from the Water Quality Association and several plumbing seals. This long-lasting softening system offers a bonded lifetime warranty on the media inside the unit while using half the less salt than other softeners on the market.

Hard Water Treatment for Well Water

Many families in Greater Lehigh Valley and eastern Pennsylvania get hard water in their wells. Our EcoWater Conditioner removes hardness, sediment, manganese and iron for softer, higher-quality water. This long-lasting softening system offers a bonded lifetime warranty on the media inside the unit. It also uses much much less salt than other softeners on the market.

This advanced system is available in a single- or double-tank design to accommodate your specific water softening needs.
