Water Softeners Tampa

Girl Drinking Glass of Water | Water Softeners ClearwaterAt Midway Services, we are not just concerned with finding leaks and repairing old pipes and heaters, we also offer professional installation of water softeners and water quality improving devices.

Most of Florida was once believed to be covered entirely by ocean water, known as a karstic region.  Karstic regions have large limestone deposits which are the leading contributor to the hard groundwater that necessitates the use of water softeners and water quality devices. As rain falls to the earth, the carbon dioxide in the air dissolves into it, which turns the water slightly acidic. The combination of this acidity with the normal solvent properties of water allows it to efficiently eat through soft limestone. As it dissolves through this rock, the ground water collects large amounts of calcium and magnesium ions. It is the metallic ions present in the solution that make it “hard”.

Due to these factors, Florida has some of the hardest water in the nation, which is problematic in a few different ways:

  • It can cause clogs and ultimately pipe failure.
  • Hardness quickly wears down heaters and other appliances, resulting in costly repairs and replacement bills.
  • Hard water has been shown to be a possible aggravator of some health problems.

Hardness of water does not have any direct relation with specific illnesses but many studies have shown minor health issues can be agitated or worsened with hard water. In addition to this, other contaminants that enter a water supply do have a potential to be harmful or aggravate allergies. Some studies have shown a relation between hard water at home and increased cases of eczema in kids. The high mineral content also worsens symptoms for people with dry skin and dry scalps. If certain microbes or fungal spores are introduced to your water source, many allergy symptoms can be created or worse, more colds. Our water softeners and water quality devices can eliminate these threats to you and your family’s overall health.

Carbon Filters

Your local water system adds chlorine to safely transport the water to your home.  The carbon filter eliminates the chlorine in your home – making the water taste better and improving the overall quality of your water.

We care about you and your family’s level of comfort and health in your home. We will come out and test your home’s water to assess its quality. If high levels of metallic ions exist or other contaminants are present, we will work with you to choose the right system, at a price you can afford.

How Water Softeners Beat Hard Water

Our water softeners and water quality appliances can remove these damaging ions in two ways:

  • Reverse Osmosis: The most common method is to use specialized filters to physically remove metal ions from the water.
  • Ion Exchange: Water is passed through a tank that replaces calcium and magnesium ions with less destructive sodium and potassium mono ions. Removal or exchange of metal ions reduces the hardness of water, making it safer, less damaging and more refreshing.

Hard water produces a white substance you can actually see suspended in a glass of drinking water. This white particulate, which is mostly calcium, builds up in your pipes leading to clogs which eventually can result in total pipe failure. This same material causes the clogging in your shower heads and faucets. Additionally, this substance has negative effects on expensive appliances such as water heaters, washing machines, dishwashers and anything else that relies on your home’s water to operate. The scale build-up can cause appliances to run less efficiently and wear down more quickly.

With our flat-rate pricing, there are no hidden costs.  Any additional expenses will be discussed with you so there are never any pricing surprises.  We also offer one-hour emergency service during normal business hours when scheduling permits.

"Midway services is great. I called in a panic because I thought I killed my garbage disposal. I called in the morning and by the afternoon we had Felix come out. He fixed our garbage disposal and leaky pipe. He was very knowledgeable, experienced, and friendly. He took great care not to make a mess. He wore boot covers as to not track in dirt. He made what I thought was going to be an awful experience a pleasant one. Not the cheapest but worth every penny! Thank you Suzanne (dispatch) Felix and Midway Services!"

We needed our a/c serviced at 4am and Midway had someone out within the hour. He was friendly, informative, and thorough. Luckily it was a minor thing and we were very pleased with three service AND the cost..... so much so that we have contracted with Midway to service or a/c twice a year and our hot water heater once a year at a cost that is only a few dollars more annually than my Amazon prime account. So worth it!

Had several bids to replace our entire HVAC system that crashed. Midway Services gave a great price and advice on the system we needed. Installed in 1-day and with extreme professionalism. We could not have been more satisfied. Their Techs were amazing and even cleaned the house before leaving. I was surprised that they did not even break for lunch so we got them pizza which they grabbed from time to time as they kept working. What a crew! Highly reccomend Midway and, in fact, we will be using them for the remodel of our bathroom and enlargement of our bedroom.

I have been using Midway Services for about 6 or 7 years. They have always been professional, responsive and good communicators. They respond quickly to needs of their customers every time. I have recommended them to several people. I give them an A+++

Midway Services is my call to outstanding work and professionalism by a staff highly trained to repair, remodel, replace and improve home ownership. After 26 years of owning and diligently caring for our home, it just began needing more assistance. A new hot water heater, toilets, tired bathrooms, hard water deposits, outlets that shut off, and the list went on. In the past seven months I have had the experience to work with Midway employees who have entered our home as professional members of a company they take pride in working for. Their work is outstanding. I can hardly wait for them to begin my kitchen remodel! I am proud to say Midway Services is a company I would highly recommend. Their customer satisfaction and work ethic is present every time a service person steps up to the door with Midway Services on that shirt.

We had an emergency with our AC unit one evening and Midway Services sent out HVAC service Dom L. He was fantastic! He temporarily fixed the problem so our AC worked that night until the part came in a few days later. Dom sat with us and gave us all of our options with prices. He made us feel very comfortable in choosing the best option for us (even since our unit was a quite few years old.) He was very upfront and honest on our options and let us choose the best route for us. We appreciated his honesty. We had some water leaking a few days later and we requested Dom back and he fixed the leak and replaced all the new parts that came in. He worked very hard and cleaned over and beyond (it was more cleaning that he thought.) He even took our wet rugs (we had in our garage) out to dry! He went over and beyond. He was very knowledgeable, hard working, kind and explained everything to us thoroughly. We would highly recommend Midway Services to everyone. They are very reliable, hard working, honest and Dom was exceptional!
