“Very pleasant experience. Shane was very nice. After I showed him what I needed, he gave me an estimated cost and after I approved the estimate, got to work. About two hours later, he was done. I was very pleased. If I hadn't known someone had been there, I would never guessed. Very neat and tidy. Highly recommended.”

“I was very happy with our service technician, Tommy. He sent us an e-mail & text (w/ his photo) before he arrived. He took off his shoes and wore disposable booties on his feet and was polite & respectful. He explained what we needed, in plain English, and patiently answered our many questions. He e-mailed me an estimate within 10 minutes of leaving our condo. He even paid some attention to our Cat ! My sister & I were very impressed.”

“Jessie was the greatest! Very professional and a very caring person and he was early. Tackled a difficult job with patience and efficiency. Worked with me for the most efficient and inexpensive way to complete the job of removing a rusty hose from a laundry faucet. Washer/dryer combo was delivered over an hour late and Best Buy would not install because of the rusty hose. I was very upset. Called one plumbing company, but could only make an appoint for 2 days later. Called Cardinal Plumbing and they were able to accommodate me with and appointment the same day! Very courteous and professional and very happy with customer service and especially with one of their most valued employee: Jessie. I've read the other reviews and it appears all of their technicians are very professional, caring and efficient. Jessie turned an upsetting day into a happy day. I was able to start my laundry as soon as Jessie left. Thank you again for making my day!”

“I admit I had a little sticker shock when I was quoted $466 to snake a clogged kitchen drain. I did receive a $30 discount as a first time customer. That said, I was very happy with the service. They came the next day at the promised time and took the time and effort to do the job right and explain what they were doing and how to avoid future issues. They left me some solution to to pour down my drain. The plumber was professional and very courteous. I gave four stars instead of five only because I thought they were a little pricey. Nonetheless I'd use them again.”

“Excellent service! I felt very well informed about all my options. The company calls, texts and emails when a service provider is on the way. I’ll absolutely recommend them and use them in the future.”

“Jessie Kidd showed up on time and was extremely professional. He fixed the issue we called about and found another problem that would have caused a huge flood in the near future. I was impressed that he took the time to inspect our plumbing system. Customer for life!!”

“Barry did an excellent job. He came out, assessed the problem and gave me an honest quote. Barry was very patient, knowledgeable, and great to work with. I will definitely contact Cardinal in the future for any HVAC or Plumbing needs I may have.”

“I thought Zack was great. He took care to protect our flooring by wearing shoe protectors. A quarter was stuck in our Garbage Disposal and he really worked at getting it out which wasn’t easy. I really appreciate his efforts so I didn’t have to buy a new Disposal.”

Water Softener

Sterling & Alexandria Water Softener System Installation & Repair

Soft water is something all homeowners want, but many don’t have without even knowing it. Hard water is an issue in many homes, but it is easy to mistake the signs for something else. Hard water isn’t a dangerous problem, but it’s something most people want to get rid of, especially when it has been around for a number of years. Luckily, aligning yourself with a Sterling or Alexandria water softening expert will make the process to soft water much easier.
Frustrating Signs of Hard Water
Hard water is a situation that causes frustration for most homeowners and family members. When the excess minerals get into the water supply, a white film or residue known as limescale is often the result. Limescale will cling to cookware, cutlery and certain appliances and fixtures, and is difficult to wash away. Hard water can also cause shampoo and soap to lose some of its lathering ability, which leads to stiff clothing and dull-looking hair.

How Does Water Softening Work?

Water softening is usually accomplished by exchanging the minerals in the water with sodium. This process is known as an ion exchange and it typically uses a mineral tank filled with beads made from polystyrene. These beads carry a negative charge, and since the calcium and magnesium in the hard water carry positive charges, the minerals will cling to the beads as the water goes through the tank. Most water softeners have an automatic regenerating system, flushing and then recharging the system on a regular schedule. During the regeneration process, soft water usually isn’t available for use.

Do DIY Products Work?

If you have seen the signs of hard water and then visited your local hardware store looking for a solution, you were probably introduced to several water treatment products that were designed to give you soft water. Some of these may provide you with temporary results, but for long-term water softening, you should have a whole-house system installed by professional plumbers. This way, you can be certain the process is safe and effective, and that every faucet in your house is producing the kind of water you and your family want.
