Use Up to 75% Less Soap & Cleaning Chemicals
Save on Soap with Soft WaterHaving soft water saves you money… a lot of it.

According to a study by the Battelle Institute, you use up to 75% less soap and fewer cleaning products with soft water. Considering the soap and detergent aisle is the most expensive aisle in the grocery store, your budget will immediately reflect the savings!

Your plumbing will last longer

Soft Water Protects Your PlumbingHard water can cause a buildup of scale from mineral deposits. Over time, pipes and fixtures can clog, water flow can diminish, and water pressure can be reduced. This doesn’t happen with soft water. Soft water is low in mineral content and therefore doesn’t leave deposits in the pipes.

Your Water Heater Will Last Longer

Soft Water Protects Your Water HeaterScale and lime buildup created by minerals will not take place if your water is soft. This adds life to your hot water heater. Also, if you have deposits in your water heater, the University of New Mexico found it will cost up to 29.6% more to heat the water that your family does use. Many tankless systems clearly state in the owner’s manual to use soft water with their systems to prolong their life and reduce buildup.

We were already well underway with remodeling our kitchen and were getting ready for school to start again, so needless to say things were hectic around our house. In the process, we had gutted the kitchen and needed some way to have water available in/near the kitchen while we were remodeling.
Wanting an easy way to get info, I filled out your online form about bottled water and water coolers. I was pleasantly surprised by your quick and thorough reply, explaining the different options and pricing for Hawkins’ services.
Through conversations and the information you provided, it was clear that while the bottled water or cooler option would solve our immediate situation, a long-term solution for convenient, refreshing water would be your sink-mount Reverse Osmosis system. So we made arrangements for its installation.
Your technician ~ Kevin ~ came out and he was all business; he put the other guys to shame with his efficiency and productivity! He quickly installed the system and we made arrangements for him to come back to finalize the installation when the granite counters arrived.
After he left, I counted the pre-granite holes made in the counter “base” and realized that the place he had intended to put the RO system was the space I had already committed to my garbage disposal button. So when the granite arrived, he had to do some modifications for a tidy and effective placement. He happily did that and looked at the connection to the water in my fridge, to make sure it was working properly. All the while, he was polite, accommodating and just plain great to work with.
I was telling my neighbor about our experience and she said “Oh, yes! Everyone knows Hawkins is the best!”
Thanks for having the foresight to help me discover what I needed instead of just “taking the sale” for what I thought I wanted. Please feel free to use me as a reference for your business, anytime!

Atta Boy to Mr. Nick!
Professional, courteous, kind,
knowledgeable, and quick.
And, we felt safe with him in the house.
We are very very pleased with his service!
Thank you for sending him our way!


We love our Hawkins softener!


I just spoke to Jonathan in your office and set up bottled water delivery to my home. I just want your management to know how kind, considerate and helpful Jonathan was in serving my initial order and set up. It is refreshing to receive exemplary customer service these days.
