Residential Water Softener Features

  • electronic-metering

    Electronic Metering

    Big box store and bargain systems regenerate on a daily schedule. Instead, we include electronic meters which measure water use patterns and intelligently revive the tank when needed. You get the benefit of reduced consumption of both water and salt.

  • bypass-valve

    Bypass Valve

    All of our softener systems have an integrated control bypass valve to take the water softener out of the main water line. You won't need this often, but it's a lifesaver during maintenance.

  • separate-tank

    Separate Salt Tank

    All water softener units include a separate salt brine tank in addition to the filtering tank. Using two tanks prevents corrosion and bridging (where the salt forms a layer above the water of the brine tank, preventing the salt from dissolving) - common conditions in single-tank units.

  • salt-supply

    Solar Salt Included

    All our installed water softeners come with 100 lbs of solar salt - salt which is free of impurities and ready to use. With regular usage, this salt will last for your first two months. For monthly salt delivery, check out our salt route service.

  • low-salt

    Visual Salt Replacement Alarm

    There's no reason to worry about when to replace your water softener tank, nor any reason to dread an annoying 'low salt' sound. Our No-Hassle softener package includes a visual alarm when it's time to refill the brine tank.

  • 5-year-parts

    5 Year Parts, Service and Labor Warranty

    We will make repair calls without additional fees for any water softener system for five years from the purchase date. Bargain systems are covered for only one year of labor. This warranty covers all parts for the value and meter, plus in-tank parts like the media, brine safety value, and air check/pick-up tube.

  • 10-year-tank

    10 Year Tank Warranty

    Both the resin and brine tank bodies have a 10-year warranty against any holes or leakage from corrosion or defect (except the Bargain systems, which have a 5-year warranty).

  • techs

    Non-Commissioned Service Techs

    Unlike many in the industry, our service techs do not receive a commission on how much they can sell you. Their goal is to ensure your satisfaction with your water. Happy customers are our business!

Common Household Water Softener Questions

For monthly plans, what is the term of the lease, and are there any upfront costs?

The lease term is a minimum of 12 months. Rates for your leased equipment never increase. There is also a purchase option in the lease - you will receive up to 6 months of lease payments towards the original purchase price.

There is no upfront cost with softener systems which are replacing an existing system or installed in homes pre-plumbed for softeners (except the Bargain 'L1' system, which has a $75 minimum installation charge). There is an initial installation fee on specialized systems or if excess plumbing is needed. After our installation assessment, you will always be provided with an upfront statement of any costs

If I buy my unit outright, can I get salt delivered? What is the cost for salt delivery?

We offer salt delivery services in the Indianapolis metro area. The cost is $7.99 per 50 lb bag of solar salt. There is a $5.00 delivery charge.

With the salt service, we will fill the salt tank for you and inspect it for any maintenance needs. It's cheaper than getting salt at the gas station, plus you get the peace of mind knowing your softener system is being checked by our expert techs!

Is there an app for my water softener meter?

Currently, the only water softener systems which have an app do not meet our standards for quality and reliability. 

We are actively working with our manufacturing partners to obtain the latest quality technology, which we expect will include an app upgrade in the future. 

Can I purchase and self-install one of your water softeners? Do you offer self-install discounts?

Yes, you can install the softener yourself. We do offer wholesale pricing for the softeners if they are picked up and self-installed. Contact us for more information regarding prices.

However, there will be no labor or service warranty provided for self-installed systems. These systems do carry the manufacturer's warranty on parts.

I have an existing well water system. What do I need?

Since every well can differ, we recommend an on-site water analysis for hardness, iron, and sulfur. We provide this service at no charge.

For more problematic water, a county board of health can do in-depth water analysis.  Once the report is finalized, we have a variety of options to solve any problem.

How are these systems different than reverse osmosis (RO) systems?

A household water softener treats your whole house's water, while reverse osmosis systems typically treat individual faucets for drinking water. A softener system prevents scale build-up in appliances, like your washing machine and dishwasher, as well as on your shower heads.

Whole-house reverse osmosis systems are extremely costly, and they're not always ideal. For instance, running pure RO water through copper piping can cause leaks by corroding the pipes. Also, two gallons of raw water are required to produce one gallon of RO water, resulting in a doubled water bill. Finally, the RO process is not necessary to filter out chlorine, iron, or hardness - a softener system can accomplish these goals. 

Whatever your priority, or whether you are buying or renting, you're sure to find something for your needs and budget.

Water Softener Repair

Repairing your water softener shouldn't be a pain. We can make the process easy.

No one wants to deal with your water softener needing services or repair. We offer repair and replacement service calls whenever you need us, including emergency calls. Preventative maintenance and warranties can help take water softener problems off your mind.

What if I already have a warranty?

Customers that purchase or lease their systems from Advantage Water Conditioning and are still within their warranty period never have to pay. $0 for labor and $0 for parts. Zero has a nice ring to it.

Can you work on my system?

No matter what make or model of water softening system you have in your home, we can help. We can service all systems, and we are committed to giving you the same level of service that we give our other customers.

How much will a service call cost me?

Residential service calls are just $99 for customers who do not have a warranty with our company. This includes an assessment by our trained technicians and the cost of labor to fix the softener if an issue is detected.

It's not fixed. How much more is this going to cost me?

If your issue is not fixed on the first visit, you will never be charged for a follow-up. While problems with our systems should be rare, we're always ready to respond when you need us.

Why should I listen to you?

We always give an honest opinion on whether your water softener system is in need of repair or replacement. We won't recommend a full replacement when a simple repair will do.

What if I don't like your work?

Our service calls are guaranteed for 30 days. We want to ensure our customers are fully satisfied with their system at all times.

 Water Softener Maintenance & Salt Delivery

We know how valuable your time is, which is why we offer preventative maintenance and salt delivery as a package to our customers. Let us manage your system from top to bottom and eliminate any headaches for you. Not only will this be an easier option, but it's also cheaper than purchasing your salt from the store!

Common Maintenance & Salt Questions

Why should I worry about preventative maintenance?

Preventative maintenance on your water softener system can save you from a lot of headaches.  We can do a check up on your reverse osmosis system or well water system to make sure that everything is running smoothly.  No matter what type of system you have, we can check it.

What do you do during maintenance?

During our maintenance check, we will check the calibration of your system.  We replace any membranes that are starting to wear out, as well as clean and sanitize your entire system so that you can rest assured that you are getting clean quality water.

How do I know my system is efficient?

We check the efficiency rating on all resin tanks, media, and components. If anything is not running as it should, we repair or replace it to get it in tip-top shape.

What is the cost of salt delivery?

$12.99 out the door.  Yes, seriously.  Receive a 50-pound bag of solar salt delivered to your door every month for less than what it will cost you to get in your car and buy it from the store.  50 pounds of salt will last you a month, so it doesn't get easier than that. Additional 50lb bags are $7.99 each.

How is this easier for me?

When you set up your delivery schedule, you only need to make one phone call.  We will help you to select the day that works best for you every month and then will show up on your doorstep each month without you having to remind us.  We'll also do all the heavy lifting for you!  You're welcome.

What's in it for me?

Having your salt delivered to you each month can save you some headaches, as it gives our service technicians a chance to spot check your tank for any issues like salt bridges or salt marshing and fix them right then.  Also, salt customers are given a 10% discount on service and part fees. It's how we show our customers we value them like family.

It doesn't get any easier than delivery straight to your door.  Let us help you save time and money.

Well Water Treatment Pricing

Drinking well water may not always be safe for your family, and it is essential that you have your water tested once per year to check for any contaminants. Bacteria in well water can flourish if not treated by a professional.

Understanding Water Well Contaminants

  • arsenic_v1

    Arsenic

    Arsenic can occur naturally in bedrock and soil in the Indianapolis area.  It is also found in pesticides and wood preservatives.

  • nitrates_v1

    Nitrates

    Nitrates occur naturally in surface and groundwater in low lying areas.  Nitrates are found primarily in fertilizers, but can also be caused by erosion of natural deposits.

  • flouride_v1

    Flouride

    Flouride is found naturally in private wells and provides many benefits to dental health.  Too much fluoride in your drinking water can be harmful to your health.

  • sulfur_v1

    Sulfur

    No one likes the smell of rotten eggs, and that's precisely what you get if you have too much sulfur in your water.  While it doesn't pose a health risk, it can be a nuisance.

  • sodium_v1

    Sodium

    Sodium occurs naturally in rocks and soils and is leached into your well water.  While we are used to sodium in both food and water, too much in your water can cause a salty taste and odor.

  • lead_v1

    Lead & Heavy Metals

    Lead and other metals can be found in your well water system if you have an older home with brass or copper plumbing fittings.  They can also come naturally from rock sediment.

  • pesticides_v1

    Fertilizers & Pesticides

    Fertilizers and pesticides can continuously deposit harmful contaminants into your water system each time these are applied to your property.

  • contaminants_v1

    Other Contaminants

    These are only the surface of the contaminants that can exist in your well water. Well water testing is critical so that you know exactly what treatments your drinking water needs.

Well Water Treatment Options

Natural and human-induced chemical contaminants can exist in all wells. Contaminants include substances such as sulfur, iron, and manganese. These can be harmful to your body and your home, so it's important to ensure your well water is purified before drinking or using. Not to mention, well water treatment systems can also give you better tasting water with no sulfuric smell. Purify your water with one of our well water treatment options below. 

SULFUR, IRON, MANGANESE

$35/mo

or $1,549 purchase
  • This treatment option is primarily for high iron wells.
  • Our A10 aeration well water treatment system effectively removes high levels of sulfur, iron, and manganese.
  • This chemical-free system uses natural air and filtration media to strip out issues. No potassium permanganate is used.
  • At night, the system backwashes, drains out detritus, and regenerates the air pocket.
CARBON FILTER

$15 - 150

 
  • This treatment option is best for wells with low or no iron and manganese.
  • Our carbon filtration well water treatment removes sulfur, pesticides, herbicides, and other contaminants.
  • Canister and tank options are available. Canisters last about a month and require a $40 housing with consumable product to be replaced. Tanks last longer, up to a year, with a one-time installation starting at $75 with an existing softener.

  • Well water systems require more attention than traditional drinking water supplies. No two well water supplies will contain the same contaminants.
  • We will create an individualized assessment based on your water testing results.
  • We often combine a well water treatment system with a water softener system to give you the best water possible.
Don't guess at what your well water needs to be treated. Advantage Water Conditioning can custom tailor a treatment plan for you.
