Water Softeners in New Orleans

Water Softeners, New OrleansAre you tired of a hard, scaly film always covering your bathroom fixtures? Hard water contains large amounts of calcium, magnesium, and other minerals that dry out your skin and seem to cover every surface in your bathroom. You can get rid of hard water quickly when you install a quality water softener. When you call a professional plumber for water softener installation, you will be impressed by how great the water out of your tap can feel. Bienvenu Brothers provides fast and efficient water softener installation to help keep your pipes clear, your skin soft, and your fixtures clean.

Water Softeners Installation & Maintenance

There are numerous benefits to installing a water softener in your home, including cleaner dishes, softer laundry, better quality drinking water, and even longer lasting plumbing pipes. Those who have experienced hard water in the home before already know how frustrating it can be to deal with.

The area has a lot of hard water, unfortunately, which means naturally high levels of minerals and ions in the water supply. This can cause numerous problems on your system and your health. Investing in a water softener system can improve the overall quality of water exponentially.

Following an installation, the water softener is capable of breaking down just like any other appliance in the home. Our maintenance services can replace the filter and clean the entire system to ensure it works as directed for years to come. If you notice the system is not functioning as it should, give us a call today for maintenance work.

Water Softeners Repair

Should your water softening system begin to fail or falter over time, as it may ultimately do, it could be time for routine repairs to be made. In order to continue functioning properly and at the quality level you have come to expect, certain parts in the system may need to be replaced. The filters should be changed regularly, the entire system needs to be cleaned, and sometimes things just break down through heavy use. When this happens, our expert technicians can explore the system and discover the exact nature of the problem, fixing it in no time flat. We can have you up and running once more before you know it.

Water softeners are extremely useful tools in ensuring the quality of your water is up to your standards, but they are complex machines through and through. By simply cleaning the tank or the resin bed, you can significantly extend the lifespan of the entire system. This task is best performed by a professional, however, to ensure nothing goes wrong along the way.

How Does a Water Softener Work?

Most people know what hard water is, but not many people understand how a water softener works. While we like to think we work magic in people’s home, the science of water softeners is simple. Water softeners contain resin beads that attract minerals that cause hard water. As water is pumped into the water softener, those minerals stick to the resin beads and the water softener pumps out the clean water into your home.

 What Are Some Benefits of Water Softeners?

There are some obvious and not-so-obvious benefits of water softeners. We believe you will be surprised at how great you and your home will look and feel after you install a water softener. Some of these benefits include…

  • Cleaner bathroom fixtures
  • Softer skin
  • Vibrant hair
  • Brighter clothing after washing
  • Better water efficiency

Can a water softener be used with lead pipes?

When it comes to installing a water softener, the entire point is to remove the ions that cause water to become hard. This includes calcium and magnesium ions and even iron ions can be removed from the water effectively. The best way to complete this task is to install a water softener unit and connect the system directly to your main water supply. This will effectively remove any problems in your water and ensure you have soft water.

When installing a water softener, it is highly recommended to change your pipes from lead to another more modern material that is far less dangerous. You may know this already, but lead has been known to be quite dangerous. Lead can cause physical and mental disorders, including damaging the reproductive systems of both men and women and harming the neurological processes of the brain. While a water softener will remove ions from the water, it could become overpowered by the lead piping of your water system. Replacing your pipes is an investment worth making.

What boiler and system do I need to use a water softener?

The majority of boiler and water systems can benefit from using a water softener in the water supply. Most water softeners have been designed to work with high and low flow rates from a single water system. Old plumbing systems that use water storage tanks on the roof require a low flow rate, while new plumbing systems use direct high flow rates of water supply. Both work well with a water softener. The softener can also be used with boiling water taps, stainless steel hot water cylinders, distilled water systems, and Combi boilers and those boilers with aluminum heat exchangers installed.

As you can see, most boiler and water systems can benefit from using a water softener. There are very few, if any at all, systems that will not work with a softening system. At one point, misinformation regarding softened water spread throughout the region. Softened water actually helps the entire system run more efficiently, improving all boilers and systems.

We have used Bienvenu Brothers several times over the last few years, and we have always been extremely satisfied with the service and quality work. Bienvenu always makes every effort to get someone out as soon as possible. They just finished a job that has increased my respect even more. Seven weeks ago, to the day, one of our bathrooms backed up in the early afternoon. Bienvenu had a sewer cleaning truck out later that day. Unfortunate, they were unable to clear the line and it was determined that we needed video inspection to determine the problem. When the video crew came out they determined that there was a problem with the parish sewer line. The parish would come but couldn’t clean the line because of a lift station problem. This repeat every couple of days for weeks. Keith and Louis made calls and did all they could to try to get the problem resolved. Finally, the parish fixed the lift station, cleared the line and corrected an issue with our connection to the main line. The next day, today, Bienvenu had Frank and his crew out, and they made the necessary repair to my line in a couple of hours. FINALLY, we can again use our own shower and toilet. Keith and Louis were persistent in trying to keep things moving, and Frank did a quick and great job of finishing up. I can’t imagine ever using anyone else!

Dear Bienvenu Brothers, I am way behind in my correspondence, but I wanted to thank you for the quick, efficient, honest service I received on December 19, 2011. My hot H2O heater went out. I called Bienvenu Brothers because of a recommendation. It was so close to the holidays, but yet you made it possible for my family to take hot showers that night. The computer board went out, and Kirk said it was under warranty and only charged me for the service fee. Since I had never used you before, I was amazed. Thanks for everything!

I just wanted to thank you for the outstanding service on my new State water heater. I bought the unit from Coburn’s and my husband and a friend installed it. It kept coding out and would not work. I called the manufacturer (State) and they recommended that I call you guys. Vint came out and did some troubleshooting. He contacted State Technical Support, and they sent the part over-night to me. Unfortunately, when the new part was installed, it still did not work, so I called Vint, and he called State again for another part. I have never had such wonderful customer service and was very impressed with the employees’ diligence in staying on top of the matter. Vicki called me to set up my appointments and was so sweet and friendly. Louis Bienvenu originally took my call and was very attentive to my problem and made everything happen. It was a very pleasant experience all the way around, and I just wanted to say “THANKS!”  Next time I have a plumbing problem, I will definitely be giving you guys a call. Thanks again and may God bless you, your family and your business!

To Louis and all the Bienvenu Brothers: A very gracious thank you! Your help over this last weekend with my grandmother’s house is sincerely appreciated by our family. Everyone we spoke with was kind and very helpful. The no charge for the service was over the top! Bless you and your family.

Louis & Crew: Thank you so much. Your workmanship is among the best. We are very happy with the new bathroom.

Dear Keith: A brief thank you note for your help with our recent plumbing problems. We were appreciative of your prompt attention. You, Kirk, Louis, Robbie and Chris were all extremely professional, good attitudes and were very efficient. We would recommend you highly to anyone we know needing plumbing-heating-cooling repairs. Again, thank you.

Martha & Al A.

Dear Mr. Bienvenu: Thank you so much for allowing us to pay off our new hot water heater. I also appreciate your help with this costly bill, and also with the excellent service we received from your Technicians. We look forward to doing business with you again in the future.

Dear Sirs: Just to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You all did a wonderful job and people have given you praise.

Dear Mr. Bienvenu: I wish to commend your entire staff for helping me get my mom’s sewer problem handled in an efficient and effective manner. Your office assistant (I’m sorry I don’t remember her name listened to my plight and relayed my concerns to the plumber. Louis Jr worked with me over the course of two days assuring me that he would give the problem his best effort but could not guarantee we wouldn’t have to dig up the entire front yard. His integrity and dedication got the job done! And then the gentleman (I think his name was Rick) who my mom talked with, assured her that her bill could be paid over a few months’ time, which is “life saving” to an elderly person on a fixed income, who wishes to remain independent. I could not have asked for more. 

Mrs. F.

Just wanted to pass on my sincere appreciation for everything you did with my tankless water heater. Hope I don’t have to call anytime soon.
