IAffordable Water Softener Installations in Southern Ohio

Water softeners work directly connected to plumbing systems and significant home appliances in a seamless way. Through a process called ion exchange, water softening systems extract unwanted minerals (like calcium and magnesium) from the water supply and this prevents calcium buildup, rust stains, and other problems from developing in water pipes and appliances. This not only makes cleaning the house easier for you but it also makes your water taste much better, which lengthens the service life of any sort of appliance using your water. When you have an expert like Five Star Dayton Plumbing install your water heater, it should last more than 20 years as long as you remember to change your water filters as needed.

How Do Water Softeners Work?

A water softener treats tap water. They are filtration systems that remove high concentrations of minerals like calcium and magnesium. These minerals cause hard water, which can have a distinct smell throughout the home. When water goes through the water softening system, it removes hard water minerals. The softened water goes through the water softening system to flow through plumbing.

To find the right water softener for your home, we start by checking the hardness of the water supply. This is measured in grains per gallon. Each system includes a brine tank, which holds all the salt used to soften the water. Your water level should always be a little bit below your level of salt, which is located in the system’s brine tank. Here, the water needs to come in contact with the salt to absorb it and create the right concentration of brine. Because of this, the water softener’s tank is filled with thousands of tiny beads, which are called “resin beads.” When hardness minerals are brought into contact with this collection of resin beads, they bind to them and remove what needs to be removed as the water leaves the tank. This collection of beads in the tank is known as the resin bed.

4 Advantages of Water Softeners

Improved Water Taste

While a water softener and water filter’s purpose is more than just taste, one of the biggest reasons many people get them installed is to make the water coming out of the tap better tasting for drinking. One of the big perks of installing a water softener and water filter is better-tasting water coming out of every tap in your home or business. As a result, food and beverages prepared with softened and filtered water taste better.

Less Scale and Scum Buildup

One of the most significant purposes for buying a water softening system is to reduce calcium and scale buildup. Because of this, having a good water softener means you shouldn’t need to spend time scrubbing to try to remove buildup from your surfaces, showers, and sinks. As a result, you won’t need to use as many cleaning products. In addition, homeowners don’t need as much soap or detergent cleaning with softened water. Overall, water softeners make the home easier to clean with and help keep the house clean.

Softer Skin and Silkier Hair

Homeowners using water softeners also benefit from softer skin and silkier hair. This is because chlorine and hard water common to water systems cannot cause damage. Because your skin won’t be as dry, and you won’t have to apply as much lotion after bathing. Soap forms a curd instead of a lather with hard water, but it lathers much more nicely with softened water.

Keeps Stains Off Dishes

Those spots seen on shower doors, dishes, sinks, fixtures, and anything else your water touches are created by unwanted minerals in the water. Removing these minerals from the water supply keeps these unsightly stains out. Because soap doesn’t rinse away as well with hard water, it’s common seeing a ring of soap scum around your sink and bathtub. With softened water, this soap will wash down the drain a lot better.

Water Softener FAQ

What is a water softener?

A Water Softener is a filtration system that works to remove high concentrations of calcium and magnesium that cause hard water. When water flows through a water softener, the system filters out these hard water minerals, and the softened water then leaves the water softening system to flow through plumbing.

How often should one add salt to a softener?

Salt is usually added to the reservoir during the regeneration of the softener. The more often a softener is regenerated, the more often salt needs to be added. Usually, water softeners are checked once a month. To guarantee a satisfactory production of soft water, the salt level should be kept at least half-full at all times.

What is hard water?

When water is referred to as ‘hard’ this means that it contains more minerals than plain water. These are especially the minerals calcium and magnesium. The degree of hardness of the water increases, when more calcium and magnesium dissolve. Magnesium and calcium are positively charged ions. Because of their presence, other positively charged ions will dissolve less easily in hard water than in water that does not contain calcium and magnesium. This is the cause of the fact that soap doesn’t really dissolve in hard water.
