There I was, a busy homeowner trying to remember to go to Lowe's every three months to get six bags of salt so I could always have soft water.
The thing is, at the time I kept forgetting to fill up my softener and trying to find the time to get to Lowe's to pick up salt.
The big problem was that my water heater had just failed due to calcium build up. That meant spending a ton of money for a plumber to come out and replace it, which made me realize, it was difficult to be a homeowner.
Then, as if by chance, something amazing happened...
I ran into a Lowe's employee while picking up salt and he said water softener salt was the best selling product in the store and that meant getting salt was a struggle for many San Antonio homeowners! So, I got online and searched for a salt delivery service. Lowe’s offered a delivery service, but it was $70 and Culligan offered one too, but I would still need to remember to call them every three months.
Instantly it became crystal clear to me how to always have the soft water my family enjoyed, because I saw if I could get my salt delivered every month, that would mean I wouldn't need to remember to check my softener and go to the store every three months.
My plan was to start a business that delivered salt every month so every homeowner in San Antonio could have soft water, all the time.
So I started asking my neighbors if they had the same problem. It turns out, they did and they just settled for having hard water even though they had an expensive and functioning water softener right in their garage. Then, I took a survey on Next Door of all the surrounding neighborhoods and it was clear, we are all having this struggle.
So, I started researching and found as much information as I could about water softeners and salt.
We then found a high quality salt manufacturer in Texas and built a website that would make it easy to have water softener salt delivered every single month, without having to remember to go to the store to buy it.
After that, we gathered up the resources and we rented a storage unit, ordered a truckload of salt, bought a forklift, and launched the website.
With all of that in place, we decided to start advertising and open this service up to all homeowners in San Antonio.
We called it “Speedy Salt”.
With Speedy Salt, San Antonio homeowners can now spend time with their families and not worry if their water softener is filled up. They always have soft water because their soft water salt is delivered to their garage every single month, it’s like an alarm clock for your water softener!
And that's why I'm so excited you are on the site to share this with you and so you can put your water softener on autopilot too!
