Water Softener Installation & Repair in the Indianapolis Area
Indianapolis ∙ Carmel ∙ Fishers ∙ Westfield ∙ Noblesville ∙ Zionsville
Here in the Indianapolis area, we have very hard water. What does hard water mean? Having hard water means there are large amounts of dissolved calcium, magnesium, and other minerals in the water. These excess minerals can build up and wreak havoc on your home’s plumbing systems, leading to a much shorter life span on expensive items such as water heaters, faucets, and just about anything your hard water touches. In addition to causing damage to plumbing components in your home, hard water requires more soap and detergent for washing and laundry than soft water requires. So, what can we do about it?
Installing a water softener in your home not only can extend the life of your plumbing components, but it also offers a ton of other benefits to Indianapolis-area homeowners.

Why Install a Water Treatment System in Indianapolis?
Lots of folks may initially consider hard water something that can be “dealt with” or ignored. But even if the taste doesn’t bug you, there are a lot of other huge benefits to consider that come about by treating your Indy home’s water!
What benefits, you say? We’re glad you asked:
- Healthier home plumbing systems. Every single fixture and pipe in your home can benefit from the addition of a water treatment system. This is because hard water is actually the result of excessive minerals—calcium and magnesium to name a few—and bacteria. These cause havoc on your plumbing, creating huge scale buildup that can shorten plumbing lifespans and create clogs, cracking, and other kinds of plumbing repair trouble.
- Easier clothes and dishwashing. Fewer mineral deposits in your water means spot-free dishes and no more stiff clothes! Even better, whites will stay white longer, since one of the leading causes of graying and fading is the calcium in untreated water.
- Healthier skin. Untreated water introduces plenty of pathogens and tiny mineral deposits, both of which are very rough on human skin. You’ll find yourself needing less soap and scrubbing, and your skin will thank you!
- Cleaner, healthier water. Whether or not you like the taste of your water, the fact doesn’t change that hard water is just plain worse for your body. By weeding out all of the calcium, gross germs, and chlorine from your water, you’ll feel better, and probably you’ll like the taste better, too.

Indianapolis Water Softeners and Conditioning Problems
Problem: “My glasses and fixtures have water spots on them and they are cloudy.”
Solution: Cloudy and spotted glasses, tableware and plumbing fixtures are a sure indication of hard water. Central Indiana (including the counties of Marion and Hamilton and the cities of Indianapolis, Fishers, Carmel, Noblesville, Greenwood and Zionsville) has some of the hardest water in the country. By hard, we mean that our water literally has lots of “micro-rocks” which leaves trace evidence in the form of spots on our glasses. This is EASILY remedied by installing a water conditioning device such as a water softener which is used to collect those tiny “micro-rocks” and dispose of them, making your water clearer and “softer”. There are many options to chose from that will meet your budget and needs and the experts at AttaBoy Plumbing will help lead the way through the murky waters.
Problem: “Our water tastes terrible!”
Solution: Bad tasting water is truly subjective. One man’s tea is another man’s mud. These bad tastes are caused by everything from bacteria that is in the water to even such things as chlorine that the local utility injects into the water. Depending on your taste buds, there are many options to improve the quality and taste of your H2O and AttaBoy Plumbing has many “flavors” to choose from.
Problem: “How can I extend the life of all the plumbing in my home?”
Solution: Without water conditioning equipment, plumbing mechanicals, such as water heaters, toilets, and faucets simply just don’t last as long. They require greater maintenance and care because hard water deposits wreak havoc on everything in your house that uses water. By installing a quality water conditioning system, you will extend the life of your mechanicals which will save you money in the long run….and your water heater will thank you!
