Do you need a water softener in Hawaii?


Hard water poses significant challenges to your household appliances, skin, hair, and overall well-being. Installing a whole-home water softener is more than just a luxury; it’s a necessity for Hawaii residents seeking a healthier and more efficient lifestyle. In some areas of Oahu, such as Ewa Beach, the water tests at over 220 ppm in hardness.

The Hard Water Dilemma in Hawaii

Hawaii’s municipal water supply contains high levels of minerals like calcium and magnesium, contributing to water hardness. While these minerals aren’t harmful to your health, they can wreak havoc on your plumbing and appliances over time.

  • Impacts of Hard Water: Hard water leaves scale deposits, clogs pipes, and shortens the lifespan of water-reliant appliances such as water heaters, clothes washers and dishwashers.

  • Skin and Hair Challenges: Bathing in hard water can result in dry, itchy skin and frisky hair.

Advantages of Whole Home Water Softeners

Investing in a whole-home water softener in Hawaii can offer many instant benefits:

  • Enhanced Skin and Hair Health: Softened water is gentler on your skin and hair, leaving you feeling refreshed and revitalized after each shower.

  • Appliance Preservation: A water softener safeguards your appliances by preventing scale buildup and mineral-related damage, prolonging their longevity.
  • Energy Efficiency: Softened water enhances the efficiency of water heaters, reducing energy consumption and cutting utility costs.

  • Superior Cleaning: Soaps and detergents work more effectively in soft water, resulting in cleaner dishes, softer laundry, and reduced soap scum in your bathroom.

    Pono Revival is by far the best water supplier and best tasting water in Oahu. They even have products that are beautiful gifts for my wife and loved ones. I highly suggest getting the BluebottleLove. Mahalo Pono Revival water company for being near my Ho’opili neighborhood and the Element Apartments.

    Absolutely incredible product, installation and customer service! After conducting extensive research on Oahu, I am so grateful to have found Pono Revival! Our family needed an extensive water filtration system for our entire home. The owner of Pono Revival was incredibly thorough, knowledgeable and patient as he walked me through each step and answered so many of my questions through the process. We have been using Pono Revival’s system for over 5 months and are extremely satisfied. Our family highly recommends this company!

    I purchased a Pono Revival under the sink system as well as a shower filter in October. It’s been one of the best decisions I’ve made for my overall health and wellness!The quality and taste of the water was immediately noticeable. I find myself drinking (and enjoying!) more water, and having peace of mind that the water I’m drinking and cooking with is pure and clean.An unexpected benefit was finding my hair and skin feeling much softer and less dry. All without changing any products!Ken provided exceptional customer service – from scheduling the installation, explaining how the products worked and patiently answering my questions.I wholeheartedly recommend Pono Revival! Mahalo, Ken!

    Being an alternative wellness practitioner and beauty professional, I firmly believe in whole self care. I could see improvement in my health both internally and externally using the shower filter and drinking the purified water from Pono Revival. Water is important, but where and how it’s sourced is just as important. Thank you for my water!

    Aloha,Tired from buying and re-filling water from the store?I was tried from carrying 24 pack water bottles to my 2nd floor for a family of 5 that went through multiple packs a week. In Hawaii, we have bottle recycling fees and prices of water can be expensive depending on convenience. Faucet water can be hazardous depending on where you live on the island. I knew I needed a better alternative for drinking water. After hearing about Pono Revival and Alkaline & Mineralized water, I was introduced into the best drinking water that can be readily available from home.I purchased the 12 Stage Pono Revival home water filtration system from Ken (owner). He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. He was willing to explain the water filtration process and benefits of alkaline water. Since our investment, the Pono Revival home drinking water filtration system has worked great for our family with no issues since we bought it 5 months ago. The system has top quality parts which are made in the USA except for the tank. We moved recently and Ken kindly provided technical support for moving the filtration system.They offer water refill stations and home water filtration systems. Additionally, Ken has quality products like their water bottles (keeps water cold/hot) way longer than Walmart brands. They also offer shower head water filtration systems. I also purchased this to prevent skin breakout and eczema for because of sensitive skin. I have since purchased 3 more water bottles for family members.You can taste the difference when comparing to non-alkaline/mineralized water. I use the water to make tea and can taste the difference. My family and friends tried the difference between store bought brands of water and Pono Revival Alkaline water and they have agreed that Pono Revival water is better. If you are ready to save time, have convenient access to high quality drinking water, you should give Pono Revival water a try!

    They have my strongest recommendation for all the products they have. We are in a water crisis in HI right now. Their system helped by 1000% especially within the household. Lets just say the taste is AMAZING! The filtertrations systems will get rid of everything. We used the Shower filter and it even got rid of petroleum/chlorine smell the entire time the crisis is happening (The H2O test with the shower did not find anything deadly so this is based off my useage conclusion). So without further ado, their filtration system will help protect those in your household and the taste in the water will keep you feeling healthier by the day. CALL, TRY AND GET IT!From a Active military customer!

    Before Pono Revival, I remember drinking just “regular filtered water” like everybody else, never really thinking about it but one day I met Ken (the owner). He was very knowledgeable in how water is filtered and how it can be acidic, chemically treated, inadequately purified, or bottled in plastic for years. After he made me aware of these things, I started thinking about how this whole time I’ve been putting these things in my body. Being a martial artist and an active runner, water is always by my side and is really the only thing I drink besides coffee.After learning that high alkaline, ionized, and hydrogen-rich water is better for my health I decided to invest in one of their under-the-counter systems. The water tastes great (even better when it’s cold) and it doesn’t have that tap water taste whats soever. Through their 12 step purification stages, my drinking water is filled with the things I need to keep me healthy, energized, and ready for my training. The shipping was fast (HI to CA) and it arrived within the same week, I also picked up a cool water bottle and invested in a showerhead system. It’s nice knowing that the water I wash myself with is cleaner than the tap water I’ve been showering in for years. After all, the skin is the largest organ and it absorbs some of the water you bathe in, might as well have it absorb something cleaner.Overall my family and I are very happy with the knowledge, the systems and the water Pono Revival has provided us with. Great tasting water right here at home.

    It’s been about a year since we invested in their shower/water filter & I highly recommend their products. A family member who had eczema used it & found themselves itching less.Great local company located in Ewa Beach, Hoopili. They even gave us a detailed & thorough presentation of how their water system works. Two thumbs up!!
