Reasons You May Need a Water Softener
Water softening systems remove magnesium, calcium, and other elements from hard water. When water is softened, you can use less soap and you extend the life of your plumbing since you reduce build-up in pipes.
If you have soap scum in your bath or shower, it’s a sign that your water is hard. You may notice a reduced flow in your faucets and washer, and you may have extra buildup along the parts in your dishwasher. Over time, scale can build up in your water heater and render it inoperable. You may notice that your white laundry doesn’t look as clean when you have hard water.
Types of Water Softener Systems
Water softening systems work by removing the hardening elements from the water. Here are the different types of systems and an explanation of how they work, along with their advantages and disadvantages.
We offer high-quality water softener installation in Akron & Southern Cleveland for the following systems:
- ION-EXCHANGE RESIN DEVICES: Ion-exchange resins come in the form of beads that you add to a water softening system. They exchange the calcium and magnesium ions in your water for potassium or sodium ions.
- REVERSE OSMOSIS DEVICES: These devices use hydrostatic pressure to separate calcium and magnesium ions from water molecules. The advantage of this system is that no other elements are added to the water to soften it.
- ELECTRONIC WATER SOFTENERS: An electronic water softening system uses copper coils to remove the hardness ions from the water supply. The advantage of this type of softening system is that it can be used where there are space restrictions.
- CATALYTIC MEDIA SOFTENERS: This system uses crystals that attract and absorb hardness ions. This system does not require regular maintenance. It is also an environmentally friendly solution for hard water problems.
