Water softeners filter out hard water minerals as the water passes through the system. Once the hard water minerals have been removed they are exchanged with sodium and potassium ions which add softness to your water , after this exchange the softened water leaves the system and is sent through your home’s plumbing.
Hard water is water that has an excessive amount of calcium and manganese which can leave a film of residue behind if used to wash your hands, body, dishes or laundry. Also, it wreaks havoc on your home appliances and plumbing system.
Soft water is free from these harsh minerals that cause water hardness which in turn damages your body and home. Softened water happens when calcium and magnesium ions are exchanged with sodium and potassium ions resulting in soft water that is gentle on you and your home as well as your wallet.
Appliances work more efficiently with soft water, therefore, prolonging the life of your washing machines, dishwashers and water heaters.
This has been a typical question raised by some of you during our testing visits. Some water softeners, however, employ salt, which may leave tiny quantities of sodium in your drinking water. We can tell you that the salt produced by our softener systems is less than what most people get from their regular diets.
Please remember that water softeners do not prevent pollutants from entering your water supply. In fact, it is our standard practice to inform customers about the advantages of employing a water softener and a combination consisting of one or more water systems.
Installing the reverse osmosis (RO) drinking station under your kitchen sink is an excellent approach to purify your water. This will ensure that you always have clean, long-lasting, and delicious water.
A whole home water softener can bring many benefits to you and your home. Removing ions that cause water hardness and replacing them with ions that will provide you with softened water will leave you with glossier hair, softer skin and more efficient home appliances.
