A water softener will improve the aesthetic quality of your water and prevent ugly hard water scale from fouling your sinks, showers, and dishwasher. Soft water also reduces soap use, improves the efficiency of hot water tanks, and helps UV units run with maximum effectiveness. The water softeners used by MacLellan Water Treatment and Pumps are metered. This means they measure water use and only regenerate when their capacity is almost exhausted. This makes them more efficient and reduces operating costs.
