You may be on the fence about repairing your water softener. You may be thinking, “Why not just replace it?” There are several reasons you should look into fixing your water softener system before jumping into a replacement. In most cases, a water softener’s problem is basic and doesn’t take much to be repaired. If you decide to replace your softener before looking into repairs, you could be throwing out a perfectly usable device. The overall longevity of a water softener is mostly dependant on the hardness of your water. However, on average, most water softeners will last between 10 and 15 years before needing replacement. If your system is within that age range, you should always have it checked for repairs before opting to replace it with a newer system. It’s true that repairing any type of system can only work for so long before it outlives its usefulness. That said, there are some easy ways to tell if a replacement is more viable than a repair. If a repair will not extend your system’s lifespan much longer, if you are repeatedly having to call for repairs, or if you want to update an outdated model with a more modern design, a replacement may be the better option. In any case, our company can handle all of your water softener needs, from installation to repairs to replacements!
