What is hard water?
You've heard the term, HARD WATER. What is it really and why should you care? Hard water is water that has a high mineral content. In most cases, it contains calcium and magnesium, often with traces of other minerals.
The more calcium and magnesium is present in the water, the harder the water. This occurs as a natural result of minerals like these accumulating during the water cycle. Because this is a natural occurrence, water hardness is typically present in well water, and even city water. The presence of hard water can often vary, as a result, from area to area within the same state.
How concerned should you be about hard water? Technically, hard water is safe to drink, clean, and wash with, but over time it can lead to costly problems like:
- Ugly stains in sinks and tubs
- Higher water bills because water appliances work harder
- The cost of replacing clothes and linens ruined by hard water

"It was a pleasure to work with the wolverine employees. From the testing of my water to the sales. The gentlemen who installed it. Thoughtful and gave thorough information. I have had visits to make sure it is working properly and that I am satisfied. I would recommend them to everyone."
"Simply love my WWS. I had one a couple decades back when my kids were little and LOVED it. I recently got an updated system after going years without one and, it hasn't changed after 20 + years. It is still awesome! I see the difference in my skin (my hands look younger and I only need to use lotion when I am at work), my clothes (don't need fabric softener), only need a quarter amount of ANY soap (even bar soap). My hair is "
"I bought my original Wolverine softener 20+ years ago. Recently, Wolverine called and set up an appointment to test my water. The call was very timely since we were noticing the 'yellow' staining in our toilets. Our water has a high iron content. The person who came out and tested our water suggested I put in an Ozone water purifier. I was skeptical at first and did not buy until I had a chance to research the product. After I did some initial "
"They came out to do a free water test. Mike watters tested my water and looked at my 23 year old Wolverine water softener and said everything looked great. He did not use scare tactics to sell me a new softener because mine was old. Trust worthy and obviously quality products. "
"Great customer service. Everyone has been very nice and helpful. The system works great. Water coming out of the tap no longer smells and the water tastes good."
"We are enjoying our new Wolverine water system. So far we have saved money on bottled water, ice, and believe it or not shampoo/soaps as well. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Thank you!"
"The service people were always very friendly and knowledgeable. Questions and calls are always dealt with promptly. Feels like a family business. We love our water now! Would definitely recommend."

"We live in an old farmhouse in the middle of farm country and our water was quite hard, even with an in line filter and special salt for our water softener. We were having to change our in line filter every three weeks and I was having to use iron out just to get the orange out of the bath tub and toilets. Since having the Wolverine water filtration system installed we have noticed a huge difference. Our clothes are no longer dingy, the orange ring"
"Very knowledgeable and polite sales person (Eric). The price was very reasonable for a source of water that you can trust to be safe and non staining. Installer was very respectful of our home and did an excellent job in a short amount of time. I highly recommend Wolverine for all your water needs."
