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.

By using a water softening system, you reverse these negative effects. You can extend the life of your appliances and plumbing by investing in the water softening system of your preference.

Different Types of Water Softening 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.

Types of water softening 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. The advantage is that ion-exchange resin devices have a relatively affordable start-up cost. The disadvantage is they need a special salt regularly added to the water.
  • 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. The disadvantage is the need to continually clean or replace the filter, and the start-up costs are higher than other systems.
  • 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. The disadvantage is that it may not work as effectively as other systems and often can be expensive.
  • 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.
