Common questions about Arizona's hard water

As water collects in the ground, it picks up minerals from the rocks and soil that surrounds it, and its microscopic size allows it to be carried all the way through your faucets. It is safe to drink, but it tends to have an unpleasant odor and leave ugly residue on your dishes. Severely hard water is bad for your plumbing and water-using appliances because it builds up and corrodes the fixtures.

Arizona’s hard water might not taste good, but it is safe to drink. However, hard water has other negative side effects to your home:

  • Requires more detergent to get clothes and dishes clean
  • Leaves spots on dishes and plumbing fixtures
  • Shortens the life of water-using appliances, including coffee makers, clothes washers, water heaters and dishwashers
  • Builds up on plumbing fixtures

The greater Phoenix area has some of the highest temperatures in the country, which warms our water in the summer.

What Are My Options for Treating Hard Water?

  • Portable water filtration pitchers and bottles:
    Pros: These products use carbon filters, and they do a great job of removing unpleasant mineral flavors from drinking water. They’re inexpensive and require very little maintenance aside from rinsing and changing filters. Brita, PUR, Tersano and Clear2O are popular brands of portable water filters.
    Cons: The biggest downside to these, of course, is that they are strictly for drinking water and don’t help the hard water that goes through your appliances and plumbing.
  • Reverse-osmosis filtration:
    Pros: This point-of-use (POU) water filtration system fits under the sink and uses a semipermeable membrane to filter particles from water. This is a great option if you use a lot of bottled water and want to reduce plastic bottle waste. Isley’s uses Ultima Water Treatment Systems, which can connect to your refrigerator’s water line, to provide great-tasting filtered water and ice cubes and reduce wear-and-tear on refrigerator lines. Ultima is also a great option if you have a businesses in Arizona that has hard water and treating the whole property isn’t an option.
    Cons: Because Ultima Reverse Osmosis is a point-of-use appliance, it doesn’t treat all of the water coming into your property.
  • Whole-house water softener service:
    Pros: The whole-house water softener from Ultima protects all faucets, pipes and appliances that use water in your home. They can handle much larger volumes of water than point-of-use and portable units. Whole-house systems remove sediment, bad tastes and odors. Because the water is purified as it enters your property, the softened water protects your washer, dryer, irrigation system, pipes, fixtures, faucets and all water-using appliances.
    Cons: Whole-house water filtration systems cost more up front (for the unit and installation), but they offer long-term savings on wear-and-tear on your plumbing and appliances, as well as savings from not buying bottled water.

Ultima products come with a 5-year warranty, and all Isley’s installations come with 1-year warranties on parts and labor.
