Living with hard water can be a pain. Reduced water pressure, calcium buildup on all the faucets and in the toilet can look terrible. The toll on appliances can be extreme when water is laden with large amounts of minerals. These dissolved minerals can (especially when combined with heat) leave scale and buildup that will damage pipes, appliances and fixtures.
A water softener works to treat hard water by removing the minerals responsible through a process called ion-exchange. Mineral ions that cause hardness and damage to your home are trapped by resin within the system and exchanged for sodium and potassium ions. If you’re curious to know if a water softener is right for you give us a call. We can send someone out to let you know.
