Hard Water in San Antonio
San Antonio is home to some of the hardest water in the country. Measured by grains per gallon (gpg), water hardness in the United States ranges from less than 3 to more than 14 gpg. San Antonio water on average has 15 to 20 gpg. According to the Water Quality Association, appliances began to wear out due to hard water beginning at the 7 gpg level.
Elmer’s Home Services offers a wide range of water softener systems to meet the needs of San Antonio homeowners. We can test your water to determine the best course of action and provide you with a comprehensive estimate.

- Tub & Shower – Soap scum build-up
- Sinks & Toilets – Water spots and stains

Elmer's Water Softener System
Cut your home operating cost by investing in a water softener. Simple and easy to use, we install trusted products that will give you long-lasting, trouble-free soft water. With various models available, we can match you up with the best model for your home.
Specially designed to create a significant savings (around 30%) in both water and salt. Also features the premium 10% Softening Resin, not the standard 8% Resin. For Bexar County residents with Hard Water a water softener will provide many benefits such as:
- Water softener systems protect your metal water pipes, hot water heater, and appliances including your dishwasher, faucets, and laundry machine against hardness and scale buildup.
- A Softener improves the performance and efficiency of all soaps and detergents.
- Soft water systems greatly improves hair and dry skin quality after showers by eliminating dried hardness deposits and soap scum deposits.
- Includes a Jumbo size Carbon Cartridge to protect softener resin against chlorine damage and provides a mild chlorine reduction for the whole house.
- Best enjoyed with our Enhanced RO System installed at your kitchen sink for all your cooking and drinking water needs.
Not just a SOFTENER, the best of all three!
- Naturally softened water without salt
- Conditioned water without the slippery feel
- Prevents/removes hard water scale from plumbing and appliances
- Leaves in all the minerals
- Zero waste water
- Does not require electricity to operate
- A no salt water softener saves you money
- Great for hot water heaters
Nanofiltration is great for people with hard water who do not want to use water softeners or salt. We can remove the hardness minerals using Nanofiltration. This is superior to using a “salt-free softener” because it removes most of the hardness. This also eliminates the use of salt. Your entire house also enjoys super carbon-purified water, and your kitchen sink gets a small RO system to super purify your drinking and cooking water for maximum protection against fluoride, chlorine, metals, and pollutants.
- Our Whole House NANOFILTRATION eliminates a water softener and eliminates softener salt usage for houses with Hard Water.
- NANOFILTRATION is slightly less than Reverse Osmosis but is specifically designed to strip out Hardness Minerals, although it is much less efficient at stripping out chemical pollutants and brackish water salt.
- Stores the treated water in a 500 Gallon storage tank. A Smart Re-pressurization Pump connected to the water storage tank is included.
