If you want your hot water to never run out, then a tankless water heater may be the best choice for you. A water heater that is tankless can provide you with an unlimited supply of hot water for your entire shower-taking, faucet-running and laundry day needs. A tankless water heater works best with soft water and/or city water found in areas like Brookfield, Hartland, Pewaukee, and Waukesha. On top of that, it's also the most energy efficient system in the hot water heater market.

Many of us in the Lake Country area have well water in our homes, which means that we rely on a well pump and tank for our water supply. Your pump, whether it is submersible or jet, pulls the water from your well into the tank, which acts as a reserve. When someone activates a water system, such as the kitchen faucet or shower, the water gets pushed into your home via the tank's pressure system. If you've turned on your water and nothing comes out, or you're just getting poor pressure, there is a good chance you're having problems with your well system. However, the only way to know for sure is to call in Austin Plumbing Company to assess the situation.

People living in areas where well water is prevalent like; Sussex, Genesee, Wales, Dousman, New Berlin, Chenequa, North Prairie, Eagle, Mukwonago, and Big Bend are prone to hard water. Everyone has seen different symptoms of unfiltered water like the white, scaly deposits on your showerhead and sink caused by hard water.

If you suspect you have a problem with your existing water softener, an Austin Plumbing Technician can perform a thorough analysis of your water quality and design the perfect solution that will meet your needs, wants and budget.
An Iron Filter System is a piece of equipment designed specifically to remove iron from your water. Unfiltered water heavy in iron has a strong sulfur or rotten egg smell. Also, iron water can leave residue and stains on your fixtures and sinks and can cause damage inside pipes, faucets, water heaters, washing machines and dishwashers. We have found areas like Nashotah, Elm Grove, Hartland, Stone Bank, Summit, Vernon, Merton, and North Lake to have higher levels of iron. However, iron can be found almost anywhere in Southeastern Wisconsin. We understand water quality and the challenges at Austin Plumbing. If you suspect you have a problem with your existing water filtration system, call Austin Plumbing!
