Water Softener Installation In Omaha

Water softeners are devices that reduce the hardness of water, which is usually caused by a high concentration of calcium and magnesium ions. They work by replacing these hard ions with softer ones, such as sodium or potassium ions.

How Water Softeners Work & Their Benefits

The process of water softening involves ion exchange. The water softener contains resin beads charged with sodium or potassium ions. As hard water passes through the unit, the hard ions in the water are attracted to the resin beads. The beads then 'exchange' their soft ions for the hard ions in the water, thus softening it.

  • Prevents Scale Build-up: Hard water can cause scale build-up in pipes and appliances, reducing their efficiency and lifespan. A water softener can prevent this.

  • Improved Cleaning: Soft water lathers better with soap, resulting in cleaner dishes, clothes, and skin.

  • Extended Appliance Life: Appliances that use water, like dishwashers and washing machines, can last longer when using soft water.

  • Energy Efficiency: By preventing scale build-up, water softeners help your hot water heater operate more efficiently, saving energy and money.

Reasons for Having a Water Softener in Your Home

If you live in an area with hard water, a water softener can be a valuable addition to your home. It can protect your plumbing and appliances, improve your cleaning tasks, and even provide some health benefits by reducing the amount of calcium and magnesium you consume.

Lifespan of Water Heaters

The lifespan of a water heater can vary depending on its type, usage, maintenance, and water quality. However, on average, traditional tank-style water heaters last about 10-15 years, while tankless water heaters can last up to 20 years or more. Regular maintenance and using a water softener can help extend the lifespan of your water heater.

JTM is an excellent plumbing company on all fronts, I work with them regularly for commercial jobs as well as personally in my home. All the guys are punctual, great communicators, and very skilled in their field. Finding a great plumbing company is not easy and I am glad to have JTM to rely on, they are honest and do the best work by far.

I called JTM for a second opinion. My only regret is that I didn't call them first. A mistake I won't make again. First plumber claimed i had broken pipes under the tiles and concrete, which would have been 2600 for the repair not including fixing the tile. JTM Plumbing, being an honest company, came in and cleared the drain of the clog, and charged a fair price under 200. I am thankful for you guys and will definitely call you with my plumbing needs from now on.

Excellent service and prompt response.  We had a very messy/smelly back up from the toilet to the tub.  We were not able to use the bathroom at all. JTM Plumbing was able to come out and fix it right away!

Rated 5 stars only because 6 isn't an option. I don't write that lightly. My rating and admiration were earned by JTM because:

- They respond quickly and pay attention to my concerns
- They offer options with recommendations
- They work diligently without "delays" or "unforeseen complications" after pricing discussions
- They stand behind their work completely

Just moved to Omaha from Lincoln and had no idea who to call for plumbing and was recommended JTM. Paul and his crew were spectacular! From the initial review and including multiple options to get the work done in a budget I was comfortable with, to the prompt scheduling of what can only be described as fast, quality work...it was all excellent. Not only that, but Paul went out of his way to help me find a good HVAC guy as well.
