No matter where you get your water from—be it from a well or from a municipal water supply—it’s important that you know what’s in it. We can assist you. Hard water simply means that your water has excessive mineral content, typically high concentrations of calcium and magnesium, along with other trace minerals. Such minerals find themselves into your water when it comes into contact with limestone, chalk and dolomite.
Hard water is often recognized by the yellowish or greenish deposits that it leaves around the base of faucets, sink and shower drains, as well as in the toilet. While it may not pose an immediate health risk to your family, it’s important to recognize the long–term effects it can have on your plumbing when it leaves mineral deposits to accumulate within the piping. Eventually, this closes up the aperture of the pipe, and could lead to the replacement of your entire plumbing system.
How Does a Water Softener Work?
A water softener is a fairly simple device that uses an ionic exchange process to substitute sodium or potassium ions for those that contribute to the hardness of your water. Hence its name. It is typically installed as a point–of–entry (POE) device, meaning that it integrates into your plumbing system at the point at which your main water line enters the house. Therefore, it affects not just a single tap, but all of the hot and cold water running throughout the household.
There are many benefits to considering a water softener for your home, including the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you are protecting your plumbing system from these potentially hazardous mineral deposits. Whole house repiping can be a major expense, while the installation of a water softener is a relatively minor one. We can make sure that yours works well for years to come.
