What is Hard Water?
Water "hardness" simply refers to the amount of calcium and magnesium in a quantity of water. While hard water is not dangerous for you to drink, it may not taste great and it can cause a number of other undesirable effects around your home. Hard water can result in sediment buildup that diminishes the lifespan of water-using appliances like water heaters, clothes washers, and dishwashers. It can also interfere with the ability of your soaps, shampoos, and detergents to lather, which makes bathing and washing clothes more difficult. You may notice that your clothing feels scratchy or your hair feels dry, tangled, and brittle. The amount of effort and money that you spend on lotions, conditioners, fabric softeners, and appliance repairs to remedy these problems is much more than you would spend to just correct the problem at its source with a water softener.
How Water Softeners Work
Water softeners remove calcium, magnesium, and certain other metals present in hard water. The water softening process begins with the untreated water passing through the mineral tank and the media contained within it. This media is called resin, or zeolite. The calcium and magnesium carbonate in the water (two elements responsible for water hardness) are attracted to the resin media and are removed before exiting the resin tank.
When the resin beads are fully coated, they lose their ability to store hardness. It is then that the salt/brine solution is pumped through the resin tank, releasing the hardness stored on the beads. After flushing the residue during the purge cycle, the beads are recharged and ready to store hardness again.
The Benefits of Water Softeners
Living in a home with hard water can present many challenges and costly problems. Hard water can be harmful to both your home and your health. As the hard water flows throughout your home, it can leave behind scale and buildup that damages your pipes, appliances, and fixtures.
Installing a water softener can provide you with several benefits, including:
- Better plumbing system longevity
- Healthier drinking water
- Better tasting water
- Increased water pressure
- Longer lasting appliances
- Cleaner, brighter clothes
- Softer skin and hair
- Cleaner dishes
- Decreased cleaning time
