What Is Hard Water?
Hard water is full of minerals like calcium and magnesium. Over time, these minerals form a hard, chalky limescale that coats the interiors of water-using appliances, like your dishwasher and washing machine, damaging them. As this mineral sediment accumulates in your appliances, it can also ruin more major plumbing systems, like your water heater, and clog your pipes!
“Hard water makes soaps difficult to lather and impossible to rinse clean, leaving soap scum on your tub, your dishes, and your SKIN.”
Does Tampa Have Hard Water?
Yes. Technically, Tampa’s water quality is officially qualified as “hard” because of where the water actually comes from: the ground. Groundwater has tons of minerals in it, and that’s what categorizes the water as hard. You can still drink and bathe in hard water like normal, however it does possess the potential to cause issues around your house, like damaging appliances or causing issues with your skin and hair. Hard water, thus, unfortunately has the potential to cost you more money in the long run. This is where Ben Franklin Plumbing comes in, with our soft water services!
You don’t technically need a water softener in your home, but like we said above, it can save you tons of money in the long term. Soft water will prevent damages to your appliances and help with having healthier skin and hair. These advantages are what mostly convince homeowners to consider a water softener.

Water Filtration Systems for Tampa, FL Homes
Also called “water purifiers,” these smaller filter systems cleanse the water coming out of one faucet or source. Generally, water filtration systems are installed in kitchens to purify drinking water. The plumbers at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing install all brands and types of water purifiers for Tampa homeowners.
Water Softening Systems in Tampa, FL
Water softeners use salt as part of their filtration method. They are designed and installed to cleanse ALL the water coming into your home. They do this by removing the minerals from your water, leaving you with that slick feeling on your skin, since the minerals that dry out your skin are no longer present in the water. These systems are highly effective at softening water, virtually eliminating the ravages of limescale buildup.
The only limitation with most traditional water softeners is that they require regular maintenance and salt refills. If you have a water softener and you’re still seeing white limescale buildup, take it as a sign your system needs to be checked because it’s likely time for routine maintenance.

Water Conditioning Systems for Tampa, FL Homes
As our most tech-forward option, we offer saltless water conditioning systems. Water conditioners do not require bags of salt. Instead, they use a complex process that:
- Does not actually remove the hard minerals
- Converts the minerals in water into a “powder” shield that is not able to bind to surfaces
- Leaves you with spot-free dishes, brighter and softer clothes, and a shower minus the limescale, water spots, and soap scum
Futuristic Hybrid Systems for Tampa Homes
Another option we offer for treating hard water is our amazing advanced hybrid system! The H2O Harmony water softening conditioner system is a whole-home treatment that:
- Removes sediment particles as small as 20 MICRONS: That is 5 times smaller than a human hair!
- Eliminates the excess chlorine and chloramines in your water: These toxic substances, which can be absorbed through your skin while you shower, will no longer be in your water.
- Single tank design: This is a space-saving design, allowing for more flexibility in where these systems can be installed.
- Eliminates stains: You’ll enjoy cleaner sinks, tubs, and washing machines. Plus, this equipment will likely last longer because it’s not being worn down by the wear and tear caused by hard water.
- Increases efficiency: Your appliances will use less energy to operate, saving you money on monthly utility bills!
