Water Treatment Systems FAQ

  • What is Reverse Osmosis (R.O.)?

    Reverse osmosis is a sophisticated multi-stage filtration system that is capable of removing up to 97% of all the dissolved minerals from your water. It is designed to make water that is at least as good as the water you buy in bottles. Many times, it’s even better. This reduces waste in landfills by using less bottled water, making reverse osmosis environmentally-friendly
  • I already have a filter in my refrigerator. Why do I need anything else?

    Refrigerator filters are typically just activated carbon. While carbon filtered water is better than no treatment at all, it is limited in what it can remove. Only reverse osmosis is capable of removing dissolved minerals and chemicals from your water.
  • Will my water taste salty?

    No. A properly functioning water softener will never make your water taste salty. The small amount of sodium added to the water will never create a salty taste.
  • How do I know if I have hard water?

    Hard water usually manifests itself in several ways. It leaves white residue behind wherever water evaporates. When hardness reacts with soaps and detergents, it leaves a sticky soap scum behind, and in hot water heating systems it leaves behind a hard scale.
  • How does a water softener work?

    A water softener works through a process known as “ion exchange,” which means that as it removes calcium and magnesium (elements that make water “hard”), it replaces those ions on a one for one basis, usually with sodium. This means that the amount of sodium added to the water is directly proportional to how hard your water is. In most instances the amount being added is so small that it is not a significant contributor to the amount of sodium in your diet.
  • Do you sell salt-free softeners?

    This is a common question because there are several companies out there advertising “salt-free” water softeners. At this point in time, there still is no product that makes soft water the way a traditional water softener does. It should be noted that even traditional softeners can use potassium chloride instead of salt, if that is a major concern to you. However, most of the products being touted as “salt-free” are actually units that are designed to reduce scaling, not soften water. And they do this with varying levels of effectiveness. Ultimately, only a water softener will give you truly soft water.
  • Will a water softener reverse the damage that has already been done to my appliances?

    Yes, if your hard water has been building up scale in your appliances, once you install a softener it will begin to remove that built-up scale. It will take time to remove it, but it will remove it.
  • Will the softener remove all impurities from my water?

    Unfortunately, no. A water softener is designed to remove hardness (calcium and magnesium) from water. They can sometimes remove a limited amount of iron and manganese if you happen to have these problems as well. But if you are looking for great water for drinking and cooking, you should probably consider a reverse osmosis system for that purpose.

I wish I could offer a more favorable review of Crystal Clear Water, but my experience has been overwhelmingly disappointing. The situation was exacerbated by our interactions with a customer service representative named Shelby. Rather than providing solutions or even basic empathy, Shelby directed my husband to seek services from a competitor.The absence of compassion or a willingness to resolve our issues was shocking! A customer service representative is often the face of the company, and in this case, Shelby's attitude reflected very poorly on Crystal Clear Water as a whole.Telling a customer to go elsewhere is not only bad business but also reveals a significant lack in customer relations skills. Given the array of options for water services, this experience has made it abundantly clear that we should look elsewhere for our needs. I strongly recommend potential customers consider this lack of professionalism and empathy before choosing Crystal Clear Water for their... services.read more

We were having issues getting deliveries from another distributor in town. Being a business on well water duting a drought, it is very important that we have drinking water available. Crystal Clear has been amazing at actually showing up every week to ensure we have everything we need. So nice to work with a company who delivers on what they promise!

I have never written a review before but this place definitely deserves it! I called in on a Friday afternoon because our cooler had been acting up and they went above and beyond to come out and replace the cooler. The lady on the phone and the gentleman who brought the cooler were both excellent and could not have been kinder!

This company gives me great products and great, friendly service! I have so many good things to say about this business upon which I rely so much.I started using them for delivery about 15 years ago, when I was in a town home. I don't get huge amounts of the 5 gallon water bottles for the stand or the hot/cold dispenser, or their other products, but I go through a fair amount, since water is my main drink of choice. They have always been very acomodating to me, helping me set up delivery and pickup times, and servicing or replacing the hot/cold unit the couple of times it was not working properly.Jodie, Sarah, and the others helped me arrange an "under the sink" reverse osmosis water filtering system, which I was thankfully able to take with me when I moved four years ago. It was re-installed with care as always, and between it and two other ways I have to use their water, I am ready for almost anything! At my current residence, Zack, my delivery man, is very friendly and polite.... He knows my back is bad, so he is always willing to offer to put the bottles where they need to be so I do not have to lift the 40-45 pound bottles myself.Everything about Crystal Clear is quality and well done and organized. Their prices are also fair, IMO. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone wanting a good water delivery company or the products they have to offer, which are many!read more

I’ve been using Crystal Clear water delivery services for around a year for my office. I love the convenience of having both room temp and hot water ready whenever it’s wanted! The process to start the service was incredibly easy! I’ve had positive interactions with every employee both in person and on the phone. They’re professional, friendly and the customer service is 5-star worthy (which is sometimes hard to find)!

Crystal Clear has been serving our office for several years. They are always prompt with deliveries and the staff are great to work with. The water is great quality with a great price! I'd also like to note that Crystal Clear has been very supportive of my children's elementary school. They have twice donated empty water jugs for fundraising activities that benefit the students and staff at the school. Thank you Crystal Clear for being a great company that offers great service to your clients and to the community.

We moved into a rental house this year while we build and the water tasted horrible! We ordered Crystal Clear water and it's amazing! The hot/cold cooler fits in easily and all of us are drinking more water because it's handy and it tastes great! Wonderful customer service as well!

We’ve been using Crystal Clear for 7 years now and absolutely love it. Our family drinks more water, thanks to our 5-gallon unit. The water tastes great and is nicely chilled. Delivery is always timely, customer service is solid, and pricing is fair. Definitely recommend!

I've had Crystal Clear water bottle service for about 3 years now. They make it effortless with automatic billing and payments. The drivers have always been friendly, and very flexible when I needed to adjust how many bottles we need. And they don't pressure you to use one of their dispensers.Prices are very reasonable, especially considering its delivered right to you. Most importantly, the water tastes great!

I love home delivery of Crystal Clear Water. Recycling is good, but these containers get sanitized and re-used, which is better, and they pick them up so I don't have to deal with taking anything to a recycling location. The water tastes great, unlike the notorious West Des Moines water. No clogging up my coffee maker with minerals from hard water. Delivery is so convenient, especially in the winter when I don't want to brave the snow. The man who delivers my water is helpful and efficient. Automatic payments. No downside at all. I'm grateful to have this great water and great service.

This is a great company! The delivery drivers are friendly and helpful. I live on the 3rd floor and it's a life saver to have it delivered to my door. They are able to be flexible with my needs for more or less water each month. The billing is convenient and the price is too!
