Water Softener Installation & Repair
Water softening lessens the water hardness, brought on by minerals like calcium and magnesium, which causes buildup on pipes and reduces water pressure. The large amounts of minerals in water can also affect your soap’s effectiveness and dry out your skin.
During your installation, our plumbers will connect the water softener system directly to your home’s water intake, usually in your basement or utility room. Our highly trained experts can install your system in just a few hours, so your home won’t be without water for long.
Water Filtration System Installation & Repair
Water filtration systems installed by the Blind & Sons team remove unwanted particles in the water with an absorbent medium. Carbon whole-house water filters connect directly to your home’s main water supply, filtering all your home’s water!
Blind & Sons also offers point-of-use drinking water filters installed in your kitchen or bathroom faucets. Water filters are usually installed beneath your sink and require a connection to an existing water pipe.
We have several water filtration systems, and our team can assist you with determining which water filter is best for your home’s needs and water condition.
Reverse Osmosis System Installation & Repair
Reverse osmosis systems are one of the most popular water filtration methods for Ohio homeowners because they:
- Improve taste, odor, and appearance of water by removing contaminants
- Save homeowners money — no more buying bottled water
- Create ice cubes that are crystal-clear and not cloudy from impurities
A reverse osmosis water system can be installed in your home’s kitchen sink to provide your family with clean drinking water. The system can also be connected to your fridge or your ice machine.
Blind & Sons also installs whole-house reverse osmosis systems, providing your home with filtered water from all sinks, showers, tubs, and appliances.

Home Water Softener Systems in Greater Akron
Home water softener systems address the issues of hard water, or simply put, water rich in minerals such as calcium or magnesium.
Hard water is a common problem with both well and municipal water. While hard water does not pose a health hazard, it can wreak havoc on your skin and your home’s plumbing, fixtures, and appliances.
Investing in a water softening system:
- Prevents mineral buildup
- Keeps appliances running efficiently
- Minimizes soap scum and stains on tubs, showers, toilets, and sinks
- Leaves washed clothes and towels feeling softer
- Allows skin to feel softer and hair silkier

Home Water Filtration Systems
At Blind & Sons, we appreciate the value of clean, safe water. That’s why we provide home water treatment services in Summit, Stark, and Medina counties, including water filtration system installation and repairs. Our water conditioning solutions can help solve these issues and improve the quality of your water by pH balancing it and clearing it of unwanted minerals, bacteria, and chemical contaminants like chlorine.
Home Water Filtration System Options
Home water filtration systems are designed for your family’s needs, solving taste, odor, and corrosion problems. Some common issues associated with both well and municipal water are:
- Hard water: Hard water has high levels of magnesium and calcium and can lead to rough clothes, spots on dishes, dry skin and hair, and scale buildup or stains on faucets and fixtures.
- Acid water: This can lead to blue-green or rust stains on fixtures, corroded faucets, and a metallic taste.
- Hydrogen sulfide: Sulfide-contaminated water is easily identified by its rotten egg smell. This can lead to stained laundry, discolored fixtures, and tarnished silverware.
- Iron: Water contaminated with iron is typically cloudy and can lead to brown, orange, or red stains on fixtures.
Water quality issues can also affect your home’s plumbing system or appliances, reducing their life span or increasing utility bills. Clean, fresh water is not only better for your family but for your home, as well.
Whole-House Water Filtration Systems
A whole-house water filtration system treats your water directly at the source, providing cleaner water from every faucet or applicable appliance. You’ll notice a difference when the particles and contaminants are removed from your water.
Some other advantages include:
- Better-tasting drinking water
- Softer, brighter clothes
- Cleaner dishes
- Smoother skin and hair
Drinking Water Filtration Systems
Water is colorless, odorless, and tasteless in an unspoiled state. Therefore, if you can identify a color, odor, or taste in your home’s water, you should probably check it out to ensure it’s safe to drink.
Several contaminants, from chlorine to bacteria, can enter your home’s water supply. Because of this, many rely on bottled water, but cost and waste can increase over time.

Water Treatment Frequently Asked Questions
Dissolved compounds of calcium, magnesium, and sometimes other metallic elements lead to hard water. The term “hardness” applies to waters that are hard to wash in (it prevents soap from lathering). Softening water for home needs is done almost exclusively using cation exchange. This process is called “reverse” osmosis because the pressure forces the water to flow in the reverse direction to the flow direction in natural osmosis. This process removes ionized salts, colloids, and organic molecules down to a molecular weight of 100. Water treatment, or conditioning, modifies, enhances, or improves water quality or meets a specific water quality need, desire, or set of standards. Removing hardness with a water softener does not affect the factors that cause or even accelerate corrosion.
