Most of the human body is water — 60% to be exact. We drink water. We play in water. We clean ourselves and our children with water. There’s no denying the importance of water in our everyday lives. That is why we are so passionate about clean water here at Godwin — and after 60 years in the plumbing business, we know water.

If your water is giving you a hard time (pun intended), it might be time to install a water softener. Hard water reduces soap’s ability to lather, creating a layer of sticky scum. This can wreak havoc in your pipes, shower, sink, dishwasher, washing machine, and even your coffee maker.

The Solution: Salt & Maintenance

If you have a water softener or are looking at installing one, don’t forget about the salt! In order to combat the calcium and magnesium that causes the scum build up, salt is used in all water softeners. We can help remind you to add salt, and we can even deliver salt on a schedule that ensures you‘ll never run out and always have the right type and grade of salt. Once you’ve got a softener with regular deliveries of salt, you can wash without worry. 

If you run into any further problems, call Godwin. The people of West Michigan are family to us—and we want our family to enjoy the safest freshest water possible.
