What Is a Water Softener?

A water softener is actually a pretty simple appliance. Sodium chloride, or salt, as you may know it, is used in order to treat hard water coursing throughout your plumbing system. Hard water is water that contains high levels of minerals, including calcium, magnesium, and iron. As this hard water passes through the softener, it goes over a collection of resin beads therein. This results in an exchange of ions, as the resin beads attract the minerals that are in the water, replacing them with sodium ions. The minerals are flushed out of the softener with a salt brine once the beads are saturated, and the process can begin anew.

Yes, the water softening process is fairly straightforward. The installation of a water softener is complex enough that only a trained professional can handle it, though. The last thing that you want is for an improperly sized or matched water softener to result in poor performance levels, let alone any damage to be done to your softener, your plumbing system, or to your home as a result of a botched installation attempt. If you have an old water softener that is broken down entirely, or which is simply incapable of providing you with the performance quality that you demand, schedule your water softener installation with a member of our staff.
