Equipment We Install
SoftenerThere are many benefits of installing a water softener in your home which include:
Do you have hard water?Water hardness is generally the amount of dissolved calcium and magnesium in water. But in layman’s terms, you may notice water hardness when your hands still feel slimy after washing with soap and water, or when your drinking glasses at home become less than crystal clear. Hard water also increases scale build up in pipes and appliances. If you suspect that you have hard water, give Elite Plumbing & Home Services a call and we can test the hardness of your water today.
Corrects a waters PH by raising the ph. and bringing the water from an acidic state to neutral state.
*Acidic water can leach metals from pipes and fixtures, such as copper, lead and zinc. It commonly causes blue staining and leaks on copper water pipes and premature water heater failure. It can also damage metal pipes and cause aesthetic problems, such as a metallic or sour taste, laundry staining or blue-green stains in sinks and drains.

Reverse Osmosis Systems
Reverse Osmosis RO
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) cites reverse osmosis as one of the most “effective in eliminating all disease-causing organisms and most chemical contaminants.”
Reverse Osmosis Eliminates:
*Nitrates were found in water at much higher levels than normal and acceptable: A little about Nitrates. Consuming too much nitrate can affect how blood carries oxygen and can cause methemoglobinemia (also known as blue baby syndrome). Bottle-fed babies under six months old are at the highest risk of getting methemoglobinemia. Methemoglobinemia can cause skin to turn a bluish color and can result in serious illness or death. Other symptoms connected to methemoglobinemia include decreased blood pressure, increased heart rate, headaches, stomach cramps, and vomiting. The following conditions may also put people at higher risk of developing nitrate-induced methemoglobinemia: anemia, cardiovascular disease, lung disease, sepsis, glucose-6-phosphate-dehydrogenase deficiency, and other metabolic problems.
Only recently has scientific evidence emerged to assess the health impacts of drinking water with high nitrate on adults. A growing body of literature indicates potential associations between nitrate/nitrite exposure and other health effects such as increased heart rate, nausea, headaches, and abdominal cramps. Some studies also suggest an increased risk of cancer, especially gastric cancer, associated with dietary nitrate/nitrite exposure, but there is not yet scientific consensus on this question. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6068531/
