Austin’s well system is notorious for its hard water and high mineral content. Aside from affecting the taste and general quality of the water, the minerals can also build-up in your plumbing, appliances, and on your clean dishes.
Luckily, if you’re looking for cleaner water, you’ve come to the right place. Our service technicians are experts in installing the best filtration systems and water softeners across Austin- without harming the environment.

What’s In Your Water?
If you live in or near Austin, you likely access Austin’s city-wide water supply.
While the water is completely safe to drink, it does contain minerals from Lake Travis and the Lower Colorado River. You can see a full rundown of the water in Austin’s water quality reports, which track the levels of various contaminants and measure the overall cleanliness of the water in our taps.
Most notably, these reports measure:
|Substance||Why It’s Measured||Likely Source|
|Barium||Can negatively affect the nervous & circulatory systems in large quantities||Natural geology from water source|
|Copper||Too much causes gastrointestinal distress and kidney disease||Household plumbing or old pipes|
|Fluoride||Prevents tooth decay & cavities at the recommended level||Natural geology or added as a supplement|
|Nitrate||Puts people at risk of nitrate-induced cardiovascular & lung diseases||Runoff from fertilizer, septic systems, or industrial waste|
|Cyanide||Poisonous chemical than be fatal in large doses||Discharge from manufacturing & natural decay|
|Beta/photon emitters||Certain emitters can harm internal organs at high levels||Naturally occurring or man-made|
|Turbidity||The measure of overall clarity/cloudiness in water||Any contamination|
The CDC, EPA, and even FDA collaborate to carefully monitor water quality and have defined limits of what’s safe to consume.
Basically, the minerals in your water won’t make you sick, but they may build up in appliances, like dishwashers and coffee makers, and in the overall plumbing infrastructure.
If enough minerals build-up in your home or business’ plumbing, it can:
- Result in inconsistent or low water pressure
- Damage pipes & appliances
- Clog in sinks, drains, & faucets
- Leave a film on dishes & skin after washing
- Reduce the lifespan of water heaters, ice makers, washers, & more
High Quality Water Filters
Most homes and businesses only filter their drinking water once it’s out of the tap, but a single filter in a water pitcher can only do so much. In addition to causing more waste, these filters rarely get changed as often as they need. Or, if you do remember to swap the filter as advertised, you’re slowly building up more and more cost every few months without the benefits of a full filtration system.
In addition to not needing salt-bags or even electricity, our eco-friendly EnviroSoft water filtration systems:

Filter Water to Remove Residue on Skin & Dishes
