It is no secret that in the Phoenix area hard water is a serious problem.  We don’t usually think about hard water until we see those horrible hard water spots on our dishes and shower doors.  I don’t know about you, but I hate hand washing my glasses just to have to wipe them down again because they dried with hard water spots all over them.  I don’t want to wash my dishes twice, and I bet you don’t either.  Another pet peeve – washing my shower doors every time someone showers.  Yes, I have a squeegee in my shower, but no one seems to know it exists but me. 

I have solved my hard water spot problem, and I am beyond thrilled!  I know, first world problems – but my home is my world, and I don’t want to spend my family time rewashing dishes and shower doors.  When I was choosing from the wide variety of products on the market that soften water, some things were important to me.  I didn’t want to replace the work I was trying to eliminate with more work maintaining a softener.   I wanted simple, healthy, and affordable.  

Having been in the plumbing profession for more than 20 years, I’ve seen a lot of products come and go and have heard feedback from thousands of clients.  This gave me a unique insight, and I want to share that insight with you today.  My intention when purchasing my soft water system was to make my life easier, so that was the main point of my purchase. 

I chose the Nuvo H2O and here are a few reasons why;  

Easy to maintain – No heavy bags of salt, a simple cartridge is replaced twice a year, and it takes me about 5 minutes to do!  Exchanging hours and hours of cleaning for a 5-minute swap on a cartridge – SOLD! 

Zero waste – Traditional salt water softening systems require electricity and a drain line, wasting electricity as well as water.   

Affordable – This was important to me.  I didn’t want to break the bank, and a Nuvo H2O is affordable for both the product and the installation.  Unlike traditional saltwater softening systems, I did not have to pay an electrician to run electrical wiring to my Nuvo Citrus Softener, and I didn’t have to pay the plumber to run a drain line for the wastewater. 

Bonus – The Nuvo system offers a package that improved the taste of my homes water by filtering out harsh chemicals like chlorine.  I didn’t even realize how horrible my water smelled until it didn’t smell like my pool anymore.  I had just become accustomed to nasty smelling water and used filtered water from my reverse osmosis for drinking and cooking…..but what about bathing?  Once I wasn’t bathing in chlorinated water anymore the difference I noticed was incredible!  I’d had clients tell me how much they loved the way their water smelled and tasted after having the Nuvo was installed, but I truly wasn’t expecting such a difference.  My water smells like…..water!
