Hard water is the most common water problem in the Tampa Bay Area. Most of the water comes from the Florida Aquifer where it is exposed to the minerals that make the water hard. According to the Water Quality Association of the United States, hard water is water that contains dissolved hardness minerals above 1 GPG (grains per gallon). The most common hardness causing minerals in the water supply are Calcium, Iron, and Magnesium. Hard water carries with it Totally Dissolved Solids (TDS), which are left behind when the water evaporates. Calcium deposits are very evident in the shower, on your glassware, and at your kitchen sink, and are commonly referred to as soap scum and water spots. These particles are also left behind in your dishwasher, hot water heater, and the plumbing throughout your home. While they are not as obvious they still cause problems and decrease the life span of the appliances.
Due to the unique shape of the frame, the galvanizer has to utilize specific fixturing techniques. This is to ensure the molten zinc can flow uninterrupted when the frame is dipped, leaving a coating that is smooth and uniform throughout.
Probably the most noticeable difference between hard water and soft water is with your hair and skin. Removing the hard water particles allows your soap and shampoo to lather properly and provide your skin and hair with a much cleaner feeling.
A typical water softener is an appliance that requires water, electricity and salt to perform the regeneration process. When operating properly, the softener backwashes the resin, doses it in salt, then rinses out the salt before putting the system back into service. The problem with automatic water conditioners is that the valves, motors, and other components necessary to perform this operation are subjected to the water, salt, electricity and the harsh Florida sun. This is not a good combination for any appliance. With a Blair Water Conditioning System, the entire regeneration process takes place at their facility. Technicians simply show up every four weeks and exchange your tank(s) with a fresh tank(s), packed with clean regenerated resin. Some of the many benefits of the Blair Water System are: No equipment to buy/finance; no salt to add; no salt water discharge on your property; no mechanical parts to breakdown; and no timers to set.
For over 60 years, Blair Water Conditioning has been providing salt-less water treatment systems throughout the Tampa Bay area. Their mission is simple; “provide hassle-free soft water to our valued customers while helping to conserve our precious water supply.” It’s easy to spot the Blair Water Conditioning trucks driving down the road. Their use of hot-dip galvanized steel is very obvious. The bed of the service trucks come equipped with a specially fabricated frame designed to carry the tanks that are packed with clean regenerated resin. The frame itself is hot-dip galvanized and then covered with a diamond plate. The hot-dip galvanized coating was specified primarily for its corrosion and abrasion protection and overall aesthetic appeal.
At Blair Water Conditioning, it’s all about the service. They rely on their service trucks to deliver on time every time, while maintaining a clean, professional image. The hot-dip galvanized coating easily withstands the daily loading and unloading of the tanks, as well as the harsh environment, and the hot Florida sun and humidity. S&B Custom Trailers & Hitch fabricates each frame with approximately 2-1/2 tons of galvanized steel shapes. Due to the unique shape of the frame, the galvanizer has to utilize specific fixturing techniques. This is to ensure the molten zinc can flow uninterrupted when the frame is dipped, leaving a coating that is smooth and uniform throughout. Whether in a suburban or tropical marine environment, the time to first maintenance, or 5% rusting of the steel surface, is typically 75-85 years, based on real world data and case studies. This means Blair Water Conditioning can spend less time servicing their trucks and more time servicing their customers.
Owner Mark Gerhart said, “When consumers are looking for a whole-house water conditioning system, they want simplicity, affordability, and a system that is maintenance free, and that’s what we provide.”
