Why A Water Softener Benefits You Daily

Water softeners provide your home with an essential service. By turning your hard water into a gentler softer water you will experience many benefits that will make your home more comfortable and help you save money too.
We can install a water softener into your plumbing system that will leave your home cleaner and more efficient.

What is a Water Softener?
A water softener is a device that removes certain minerals in order to soften your hard water. Hard water contains large quantities of magnesium, calcium, and other minerals. Water picks these up while in the ground from dissolving metals found in surrounding rock and soil.

These contaminants can make the water unsuitable for drinking or use in the home. We can plumb a water softener into your water supply system.

Through ion exchange, this softener will swap out those unwanted minerals for sodium. It removes the magnesium and calcium ions and recharges them resulting in softer water.

What is the Difference Between Single and Twin Tanks?
A water softener’s quality will depend on its efficiency and performance. Twin tank softeners have two resins to use. This allows them to produce as much as 450 liters of soft water. Single tank versions can produce 2,000 liters.

A twin tank softener will provide you with less quantity, and the water is more salty. A single tank system will provide more quantity with a less salty finished product. Twin tanks allow for 24/7 soft water, but hey can recharge at any time. Its design is more complex and has more working parts than the single tank.

Water Softener Benefits
Once we install a water softener in your home you will discover many benefits.

  • You will find that everything is easier to clean. There will be fewer spots or residue left on dishes, and your hair and skin will feel cleaner.
  • Your appliances will last longer. The minerals in hard water build up in dishwashers, washing machines, and water heaters. This shortens their life expectancy.
  • Soft water heats quicker. This means the efficiency of your hot water tank will improve, costing you less in utility bills.
  • Your home’s plumbing system will be cleaner. Hard water leaves deposits behind. Eventually those deposits will create unwanted clogs.
