So how hard is the water in my home?
Did you know that hard water affects more than 85% of homes in the United States? Odds are your family’s home is affected by hard water. With the varying levels of hardness, how do you know if your part of the country or your state–all the way down to your local municipal water source is being affected?

Tonight I will be staying up late—working on devious little ways to surprise and trick my family for April Fool’s Day tomorrow. We’re big fans of April Fool’s Day. Fortunately for me, my children don’t usually remember the holiday until they’ve been spoofed! Then they try very hard to pull of mischievous pranks the rest of the day.
Water Related Practical Jokes
As part of the WaterTech team, I of course love WATER—and many of my pranks involve water. Such as the partially opened bathroom door with a paper cup full of water jimmied on top of the door to fall on the first person to enter. And there’s the tried and true rubber-banded water sprayer at the kitchen sink prank that someone successfully pulls of each year.
Spring is finally here and we’re glad to say goodbye to the dry, itchy skin and tight scalp generally associated with dry, cold winter months. However, some people deal with these skin conditions (or much worse) all year long.
Eczema is a chronic skin condition that affects an estimated 35 million Americans: 20 percent of children aged up to 11 years old and 8 percent of teenagers and adults suffer from eczema.
Salt-Free Water Conditioning May Be the Answer
Hard water is found throughout the world, and in about 85 percent of the United States, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. But despite the need for water softening where hard water is prevalent, conventional ion exchange water softeners are not always the right answer.
What is the difference between the REIONATOR® and other water softeners?
Here at WaterTech, we’ve been manufacturing the “REIONATOR®” water conditioning system for more than 25 years. During this time, The REIONATOR® has established a reputation for quality and is conditioning water in the homes of hundreds of thousands of happy customers.
So what makes the REIONATOR® different from other water softeners?
Water flowing in a local stream and the water flowing through your faucet may look the same, but it is what you can’t see that makes the difference. Stream water can carry microscopic minerals, bacteria, and even tiny organisms. For this reason, it is purified by your local municipality to be safe for drinking, showering, teeth brushing –and all the other things water is used for on a daily basis.
It might be safe to say that we love our large appliances. We can’t live without our 5-cycle dishwasher and our front-loading laundry washer. But the cost of these beautiful, premium brand appliances might have bought a Volkswagen Beetle just 40 years ago! Large home appliances are big investments built to last for years–if we take proper care of them.
At WaterTech, we love our pets just as much as our humans–and we are not alone. Pets are now part of the family in more than 82 million U.S. households according to the most recent APPA* National Pet Owners Survey. That’s right, roughly 68 percent of U.S. households are pet owners. It just so happens that about 70% of the WaterTech family are pet owners, so pet health is important to us.
Are you considering giving filtered water to your pets?
For years, the medical world has been telling us that we need to drink more water—for healthier skin, better kidney function, to lose weight, to be smarter–and a million other reasons. So for many, H20 has become the beverage of choice.
As the beverage of choice, bottled water sales have skyrocketed—which is great because we’re drinking more water. However, there is a cost to the convenience of bottled water, both environmentally and financially.
Eighteen years ago, my husband and I purchased our first home in Ft. Worth, TX. After a couple of years as newlyweds, we were thrilled to be homeowners. And with the delight of home ownership, came the joy of many trips to the home improvement store.
Early on we saw evidence of hard water
We had faucets that were corroded and required replacement. We had a chalky film in our shower that needed a miracle product, and very cloudy glasses and spotty dishes that weren’t looking better despite detergent finishing products.
