Comprehensive Water Testing
Good Water Quality for your family is worth it!
Checking the quality of water in our homes is necessary for our health and safety. And even though the United States has one of the safest water supplies in the world, drinking water still may contain contaminants.

Whether you have well water or city water, this inspection is a great tool for your peace of mind.

Along with receiving a report of your water conditions, our technician will be glad to answer any questions you may have. We can also provide a free estimate of customized system options based on your plumbing system needs.
Water Softener Service & Install
Have you ever noticed you have spotty dishes, buildup on your shower, soap that doesn’t lather or rinse well, or clothing, skin, and hair that feels stiff after washing? These are all signs of hard water. You can be certain you will receive quality service backed by industry-leading workmanship warranties when you call Mendel Plumbing & Heating. We offer water testing services to homeowners in St. Charles as well as the surrounding Fox Valley communities of South Elgin, North Aurora, Geneva and Batavia.
Hard water is caused by certain “hardness” materials—like magnesium and calcium— that’s in your home’s water supply. Hard water can cause many issues in your home like clogging pipes, damaging your appliances, and creating health issues.
Hard water contains high traces of calcium and magnesium ions, which can create limescale and have a damaging effect to the internal heating and plumbing systems of your home, as well as limiting the effectiveness of soaps and cleaning products. Soft water doesn’t contain these elements, and as a result, households with water softeners are capable of saving a considerable sum of money throughout the year for a variety of reasons.
Water softener / treatment system benefits
- Provides a continuous supply of treated water to your home
- Increase the lifespan of water consuming appliances, ie water heater, dishwasher, laundry machine, etc.
- Removes odor and stain causing minerals from water
- Prevents hard water damage to plumbing fixtures
- Prevents hard water spots on glassware and surfaces
- Helps treat skin conditions, ie eczema and other dry skin conditions
A Water Softener installed by Mendel can also help reduce water heating bills, extend the length of your other household appliances, and reduce your laundry and dish detergent usage 50 to 75%.

R.O. Filtration System
Widely considered one of the most effective water filtration methods, reverse osmosis (RO) creates clean, great-tasting water. RO systems are used in a variety of applications, including filtration for whole houses, faucets, aquariums, and restaurants. No matter what kind of water you start out with, there is likely an RO system that will suit your needs.
Reverse osmosis also has the added benefit of perpetually producing highly purified water in your home. There is no need to run out to the grocery store to stock up on expensive and wasteful cases of bottled water. A reverse osmosis system produces bottled water quality hydration in the comfort of your kitchen. You can even fill stainless steel water bottles with RO water and store them in your fridge, so you can enjoy all the conveniences of bottled water without the disposable single-use plastic bottles and weekly grocery runs.
