Water Filtration & Softening System’s in Sparta & Newton, NJ!
How a Water Softener Can Improve the Quality of your Water & Save You Money.
It’s usually pretty easy to tell if your home is plagued with hard water conditions. Here are the common telltale signs:
- Scaly white deposits in basins or plumbing fixtures
- Water spots on glasses or dishes after you’ve already run them through the dishwasher
- Your whites aren’t as white as they should be after you’ve washed them
- Extra suds needed for truly clean clothes and dishes
- Scratchy sheets and towels
- You need extra shampoo to get your hair clean and shiny
Some hard water problems can’t be readily detected. Take, for example, the damage caused by excess mineral deposits inside your water heater or pipes. It’s extensive enough to shorten their lifespan.
Hard water also can cost you a bunch of money in extra cleaning and personal hygiene products – and then there’s the possibility of plumbing repairs and a shorter lifespan for your dishwasher and washing machine.
What’s the cure? A water softening system from Heine Plumbing.
What Does a Water Softener Do?
A water softener is an appliance we connect to your home’s water supply. Water softeners employ a process called ion exchange that replaces the hard-water-causing minerals with sodium ions.
Still, not all water softeners are made the same. That’s why you need a true water treatment professional like Heine Plumbing to recommend one that fits your water quality needs and your budget. In addition to water softeners, we install water treatment systems that soften while also neutralizing acidic water, removing iron, and treating taste and odor issues that stem from chemicals like chlorine. We also maintain and repair numerous makes and models of water softeners, including any we install.
To rid your home of hard water conditions once and for all, contact Heine Plumbing to arrange a test of your home’s water supply so we can first determine if you have a problem, and then just how extensive it might be.
Also, please keep the following in mind for your own protection: Only NJ State Licensed Master Plumbers are permitted to install water softeners in the state of New Jersey.
Whole-House Water Filter | Reverse Osmosis Unit
While hard water is more or less a nuisance – and a potentially expensive one – it is not harmful to your health. The same cannot be said for chemically contaminated water. The most commonly found and potentially harmful chemicals to your health include:
- VOCs (volatile organic compounds)
We also can effectively treat sulfur (rotten egg) odor in your water supply.
Homes with well water systems are most at risk for these and other water contamination issues. How can you be sure that your water is fit to drink? You really can’t be unless you have it periodically tested. Once again, Heine Plumbing is ready to help. If test results reveal higher than acceptable levels of chemical content, we also can recommend the right water filtration system for your home, family, and budget, of which we offer two basic types:
Whole-house water filter: provides clean, filtered water from every water-using faucet and appliance inside and outside your home.
Reverse osmosis unit: installed under your kitchen sink and connected to its own dedicated counter-top faucet.

Thanks to constantly evolving technology, there may be more than one method for treating a contaminant. However, if more than one contaminant is present, certain treatment methods may not be effective. For example, iron may be present at a low level where it will not demonstrate any symptoms. Its presence however, will reduce the capacity of a conventional water softener. Therefore, its presence is a factor when calculating the appropriate size of the water softener.
In addition, pH can have a major impact on water conditioning minerals. Excessively high or alkaline pH can reduce carbon’s ability to oxidize sulfur in units that remove hydrogen sulfide gas. Varying pH levels can also reduce the life of certain water conditioning minerals.
Don’t be concerned if this sounds too complicated. Our highly trained technicians will go over everything with you in person. You will feel confident that you’ve made the right choice!
The law prohibits manufacturers of conditioning equipment from testing water for potability such as bacteria and such. Potability tests must be performed by a certified Laboratory.

There are many factors that can affect the testing and test results of water. Based on our experience and knowledge, Heine Plumbing strongly believes that testing is best performed in a controlled environment by engineers with decades of experience. Simply put, water conditioning is an exact science. There is no guesswork involved. An inaccurate test can lead to incorrect product selection and installation.
We have a reputation for solving the problem first time, every time. And we don’t intend to put that reputation on the line by taking unnecessary shortcuts.
