Physical Water Softening in Orange County
Defeat Scale and Stains Without Salt and Chemicals – Call McKeown Plumbing
Physical water softening is an optional add-on to a new or existing water filtration system. It is also an alternative to water softening. Water softening is designed to remove unwanted contaminants from water without altering the chemistry of your water supply.
When combined with activated carbon treatment systems, reverse osmosis, or UV filtration, physical water softening leads to crisp, clean water throughout your home. It can also protect your fixtures and appliances from the effects of “hard water” or water that has high mineral content and leaves stains and mineral deposits behind.
If you’d like to add a physical water softening to your home filtration system, McKeown Plumbing can help. We have been serving Coastal OC for over 45 years, and we are ready to serve you, too.

What Is the Difference Between Water Conditioning and Water Softening?
Water softeners remove hard minerals from water and replace them with sodium ions from a brine tank. Water conditioners soften water by altering the structure of hard minerals, so they do not cause stains and scaling in your home and appliances. One benefit of water conditioners is that they soften water without removing nutrient-rich minerals or adding salt to the water.
The AR Pro
The AR Pro costs $800, making it a perfect economic solution for whole-home protection against hard water and limescale buildup. This versatile water conditioner can also rid pipes and appliances of preexisting buildup.
By transmitting high-frequency radio waves upstream and downstream in the water, the AR Pro changes the structure of iron (Fe) molecules to form nucleation seeds. Then, scale sticks to the nucleation seeds instead of the surfaces in your home. Because the chemical composition of your water does not change, you will still get all the minerals and nutrients available in hard water.
Additionally, the radio waves in the AquaRex AR Pro create a resonance that breaks up existing scale, which means your plumbing system can be completely cleared of old scale within weeks. When conditioned water is hot, it is also less hard than normal, so you won’t get pesky calcium buildup in your shower and faucets.
The AR Pro comes with a 20-year manufacturer’s warranty and can be installed easily. Your technician will simply wrap aerial wires around existing pipework, which means you will not have to worry about plumbing, shutdowns, or other inconveniences. Usually, the device will be installed right before the cold-water line to the water heater.
More importantly, the water conditioner works. In Las Vegas, the AR Pro reduced scaling by 83% in water heated to 180 degrees Fahrenheit. It left behind no scale or contamination from other minerals.
Best of all, the AR Pro does not require maintenance!
