I obtained 4 quotes for installing my soft water system. I decided to go with Independent Water due to the thoroughness of Dwight. Tested my water at the initial consult and didn't try to oversell me, rather give me the system that I needed. I must say I'm thoroughly impressed with the system. Customer Service was great and I certainly recommend them. After 2 days there is a noticeable difference in my housevwater. - Larry Nelson

Best decision I've made on a home appliance. They were quick to get me on the schedule and even showed up earlier than I expected.

AWESOME COMPANY! After being quoted $1650.00 from another company for a new soft water system, I contacted Independent Water Service to get a second opinion. The friendly Independent Water Service employee examined my current system, cleaned the filter, added salt and gave me a tutorial on how to maintain the system. He found my current system to be in very good operating condition. I am so happy that I called Independent Water Service. They saved me over $1575.00. They are professional and honest. I'd give them 10 stars if I could. - B Johnson

We feel confident that we understand how to keep the system maintained after this visit. - Yakima Valley Nurse

While most homeowners may never encounter scary-sounding water contaminants like toxaphene and trichloroethylene, there are several common water problems to be on the lookout for in the home:

  • Hard water
  • Iron water
  • Acid water
  • Turbidity
  • Taste and Odor
  • Contaminants

For more information on these problems, please schedule a FREE water purification analysis.

The right water purification system or treatment for your home is determined by a number of factors including a professional water test and analysis of your family's water usage. 

  • What water system are you currently using (municipal or well)?
  • How many people are living in your home?
  • What is your normal water usage?
  • How many bathrooms do you have?
  • What kinds of water-using appliances are in your home?

Authorized EcoWater Pro's like Independent Water Service of Yakima, WA are water treatment professionals trained to understand your family’s needs and determine the right product for your home.

One of the biggest misconceptions about water softeners is that the salt is what softens your water.  What actually softens the water are the thousands of resin beads inside your softener that filter out hard water minerals.

  • Water softeners use a negatively charged ion exchange resin to collect the impurities from your water. The resin becomes charged when it mixes with a sodium or potassium solution. The salt in the water softener isn’t what softens the water; it is what enables the resin to collect and remove the hardness from your water.
  • The EcoWater refiner softens your water, and also removes the chlorine taste and odor, which is often a result of water treated by cities and municipalities.
  • Regeneration is the term for when the resin is being cleaned and recharged in the sodium solution.

Purified water is water that has been mechanically filtered or processed to remove impurities and contaminants like bacteria, chemicals, and toxins from tap water.

Filtered water involved running water through a type of filter, carbon filters being the most common. Carbon filters remove chlorine and improve the water’s taste. In these filters, the activated carbon helps remove unwanted contaminants like pesticides and arsenic, but leave minerals in.

The benefits of treated well water include:

  • Reduced scale build-up on pipes, faucets and water-using appliances, providing energy savings.
  • Reduced iron stains, tastes and odors.
  • Cleaner, brighter laundry.
  • Lower use of soaps and detergents, saving money.
  • Eliminated spots on glassware and silverware.
  • Softer skin and hair.

Independent Water Service of Yakima, WA can evaluate your water and recommend a water softener system or whole home filtration systems customized to treat your home’s well water.

Key signs of a well pressure tank reaching the end of it's life or needs parts replacement are:

  • The pressure switch and pump constantly switching on and off.
  • The well is pumping sand or sediment in.
  • Low water pressure
