R.O. and Water Softeners For Rent

Are you living with hard water and looking for solutions? Soap scum, stained sinks, buildup on faucets, stiff laundry, scaly skin… these are all results of hard water. It’s a common problem with most water systems. But there are solutions. Many of our posts discuss common solutions offered by The Bosworth Company like reverse osmosis (R.O.) and water softeners. We often recommend that these two solutions be used together to create the cleanest possible water for drinking, bathing, and cooking. We are proud to offer an additional option for families and businesses: these systems are available for purchase and for rent! This gives our customers the flexibility to pick the solution that best works for them.


We can’t do a post about R.O. and water softeners without explaining what they are, how they work, and the difference between the two.

Reverse Osmosis basically works as a filter. It takes the bad stuff (bacteria, mineral deposits, etc.) out. That includes things that make your water taste or smell bad, and leave stains around your kitchen and bathroom. R.O. systems are installed for a single faucet, which is usually under the kitchen sink.

By contrast, water softeners don’t filter, they add to your water. Softeners add ionized sodium that helps break down those chemicals, so they don’t cause the problems as if left untreated. Water softeners are usually added at your tank, so they provide the treated water to your entire home.


The Bosworth Company offers R.O. systems for rent for as low as $35/month, including maintenance! Water softeners can be rented for as low as $45/month, also with maintenance included!

Water Purification Using R.O.

Bottled water is a way of life for most West Texans. We don’t drink from the tap because we feel we can’t. Even if it’s not dangerous to drink, the water coming from the faucet just doesn’t taste very good. What if there was a way to purify your water, so you could drink it straight from the tap? In this post, we’ll explain the Reverse Osmosis water purification process and how a system could work for you and your household!


The awesome news about Reverse Osmosis is that it scientifically guarantees that your water is pure H20. Water is considered “hard water” when contaminants are gathered as it makes its way through the pipes to your drinking glass. R.O. scientifically eliminates them. 

R.O. systems are commonly used to manufacture bottled mineral water. Imagine that coming from your faucet!


R.O. requires the use of filters, called membranes. The “reverse” part of R.O. happens because the water has to be forced through the membrane to separate contaminants from the good, clean water. The water purification filters trap particles like calcium and rust before they get into your drinking water. Many systems use a second carbon filter to catch more chemicals – things like chlorine which come in even smaller particles. Finally, a Reverse Osmosis membrane filter uses an ultraviolet lamp to sterilize any remaining contaminants. Depending on the filter type, the sizes of the membrane pores can vary. The smaller the filter, the cleaner the water.


The Bosworth Company offers a variety of water purification solutions. It’s important to know that there are lots of options, and R.O. systems work best when accompanied by a water softener. You even have the option to rent an R.O. solution that works for you. Schedule an appointment online or call us today at 432-570-5233. It’s Worth the Call. Always.

Cleaning Hard Water Stains

Hard water is a topic we’ve addressed several times in the past. This is because it’s a common problem in many homes, especially here in West Texas. When those stains show up, they can be difficult to clean if you don’t do it right. In today’s post, we’ll discuss the best ways to make sure hard water stains don’t damage your kitchen or bathrooms. 


Your secret weapon to cleaning hard water stains is vinegar. Mix vinegar with water and put it into a spray bottle. Plain white vinegar works great as a 50/50 mix with water. Do NOT use apple cider vinegar, or other types of vinegar.


The spot stain you’re wanting to clean could be on a counter-top, inside a sink or shower stall, in a bathtub, or even on glass. Regardless, you’ll want to spray the area with your vinegar solution. Important: Do NOT use the vinegar solution on wood!

Once you’ve dampened the area, it’s time to wipe it down. You can use a paper towel or a clean cloth towel. When you’re done, go back and wipe it down with a paper towel that’s been dampened with water only. This will help prevent residue from the vinegar from sticking to the surfaces you’re trying to clean.

It’s important that the area is thoroughly dried when you are done. If not, the water could evaporate, leaving more unwanted spots!


One of the biggest places where you’ll find hard water build-up is on faucets. The minerals that make the water “hard” can really stop up the spouts in your faucet. Soak the faucets (after removing them if necessary) in the vinegar solution. You may even need to use a brush to scrub away the stuck-on mineral deposits.


Vinegar works on toilet bowls too! Just pour in about a cup of pure vinegar, then use a toilet brush to scrub out stains. Flush the bowl when you’re finished to clean out the vinegar.


The Bosworth Company offers solutions for hard water, including water softeners and reverse osmosis systems. To see which one is right for you, give The Bosworth Company a call today at 432-570-5233 or schedule an appointment online. It’s Worth The Call. Always!

Is Your Water Clean Enough?

Do you have “hard” water? Does your bathtub sport telltale rust stains?

If you answer yes to either of these questions about a property you own, then you may need a reverse osmosis water system.

You may be asking: What’s that? Simply put, reverse osmosis water systems are tools that allow for your tap water to be softer than it originally is. Thanks to this not-so-complicated but still-intriguing science, you, your family and coworkers, and even your tenants if you have any, can drink water that doesn’t taste like sulfur.

Care to find out how water becomes pure in unfortunate “hard water” areas? Read on to learn how reverse osmosis actually works and why your money is well-spent on such a setup.

1. How It Works

A reverse osmosis system is a water filtration device that uses a semi-porous membrane which removes ions, unwanted molecules, and larger particles out of drinking water. To put it in simple terms, this type of filter gets rid of all the yucky stuff in the water that’s both too small to see and too difficult to get rid of any other way.

This system consists of a high-powered pump that forces saltwater across the semi-absorbent membrane or filtering screen. Ninety-five to ninety-nine percent of dissolvable salts are left behind once this process is through.

2. Why Use Reverse Osmosis Water Systems?

As a business owner or homeowner, you want to use this system because reverse osmosis systems filter all traces of lead, first and foremost. As a health benefit, they can dramatically decrease the potential for high blood pressure, as well as kidney and liver problems in humans.

Although man has been filtering water since ancient Rome in 500 BC, it wasn’t until the 1970s that civilization began using the very first reverse osmosis systems. Of course, today’s reverse osmosis water systems are more advanced and slightly more costly, but this is the case for good reason. As years have passed, filtration technology has gotten even better and your everyday water is bound to be purer.

3. How Do You Get This System?

Whether it be a whole-home residential reverse osmosis system or a commercial reverse osmosis water system, you should always rely on a licensed plumber to complete the installation. They should also handle any and all applicable plumbing adjustments. If an advanced filtration system such as this one is not installed properly, it won’t work well (if at all). Simply put, if you install it yourself, it won’t be worth the money you spent on it.

So whether you want a cool glass of water on your day off, or a purified drink from a company-wide system, a reverse osmosis water system is definitely a must-have. Contact The Bosworth Company today to have one installed at your home or office. We are Worth the Call. Always.
