Maintenance & Repair Services for Water Treatment Systems

For More Efficient, Longer-Lasting Water Conditioners, Softeners, or Filtration Systems

Water treatment systems are all designed to give you better water. But like all machinery, they can break down or wear out over time. From drinking water that doesn't taste good or hard water that damages your appliances, a water system that isn't working like it should can have a negative impact on your quality of life. Our local dealers provide preventative maintenance, repair and service to keep your water conditioner, water softener, or water filtration system working safely and efficiently, reduce breakdowns, extend the life of your system, and ensure that your family is never without high-quality water. If your water systems aren't providing you with the quality of water you need, contact WaterCare today.

Why is Water System Maintenance Important?

There are several reasons to perform routine maintenance of your water treatment systems, but there are three primary benefits.

Safety: Hard water, bacteria, and excess minerals in your water can all lead to potential health problems. Regular cleaning and annual maintenance will ensure that you have clean, great-tasting water.

Efficiency: Too much salt or a clogged filter can lead to an inefficient and ineffective water system. Proper maintenance and care can ensure reliable and efficient operation.

Performance: Water treatment systems have parts that wear out over time. Having your system inspected and serviced annually can reduce breakdowns and ensure the highest quality water possible.

How Do You Maintain Water Treatment Systems?

Preventative Maintenance

Taking steps to maintain your water systems helps prevent bigger, more expensive problems in the future and ensures optimal performance. Your local WaterCare dealer can help ensure the longevity of your system and keep all parts working optimally with preventative maintenance solutions.

Problem Diagnosis & Repairs

Is your water softener, conditioner, or filtration system malfunctioning? WaterCare's skilled technicians can quickly diagnose and repair the problem. If you've noticed that the quality of your water isn't the same or that your water treatment system isn't functioning like it should, it could be time to have your system inspected and repaired.

Signs of water system problems:

  • Spots, stains, or film on dishes
  • Mineral buildup on fixtures or appliances
  • Dry skin or hair
  • Foul odor coming from water
  • Too much or not enough water in the brine tank
  • Sump pump continuously running or water constantly running down the drain
  • Salt level in the brine tank isn't changing
  • High-pitched squealing noise during the backwash process
  • Check salt alarm going off even though there is salt in the brine tank

Water System Upgrades & Replacements

When it's time to upgrade or replace your water system, WaterCare's experts can design a custom water treatment solution for your home, including a water softener, conditioner, drinking water system, or a water filtration system. Our dealers will haul away the old equipment, free of charge.

Annual Maintenance by WaterCare

Full-service care by local water system experts

During an annual service appointment with your local WaterCare dealer, an experienced technician will perform a thorough 10-point inspection of your water treatment system, which includes diagnostics, cleaning, adjusting program settings, and servicing to ensure your equipment is working safely and efficiently. If any problems are identified, your technician will review these issues with you and discuss your options.

Cleaning: The wall of the brine tank is cleaned to remove dirt and debris that can clog your water softener system and cause it to stop working. Your technician will check for salt bridging and sanitize the system, when needed.

Settings adjustments: Adjusting your system's valve settings can save you money. For example, if you have a child that went away to college, you might be using less water. When your child comes back home during school breaks, you'll likely use more water. Having your water softener serviced ensures your system's settings are optimized to meet your use.

Service & repair: Like all machinery, including your car or home appliances, your water system has parts that wear out over time. If you've noticed changes in your water quality over time or a sudden change in its quality, this can indicate a faulty water softener, conditioner, or filtration system. When your water treatment system stops working or isn't working like it should, a WaterCare professional can provide maintenance and service to help extend the life of your system and ensure that your family is getting the highest quality water possible.

Water quality assessment: Changes in the taste, smell, or color of your home's water could be signs of a water condition, softener, or filter problem. WaterCare offers free in-home water tests to identify and diagnose water issues in your home. For a free water test or water system maintenance, find a WaterCare dealer in your area today.
