What is Hard Water?

Hard water is any supply that contains excess minerals or metals, and 85% of North American households are in a hard water area. This can cause a variety of problems related to cleaning, appliance life expectancy and efficiency – including problems related to your water heater.

Do I have Hard Water?

You can determine the hardness level of your water by requesting a free hard water test strip. This quick and simple test will help you decide whether a water softener is right for you.

Rheem® Learning Technology
This new line of Rheem water softeners offers smart, built-in Rheem® Learning Technology that learns your water usage patterns to optimize salt and water consumption and provide on-demand soft water for your home. This premier product line saves you money, conserves water and energy while delivering pristine, soft water throughout your home.
