What is a water softener?

A water softener is made up of three main components:

  • Control Valve: determines when regeneration is necessary, the direction of water flow and the amount of time spent in each cycle
  • Pressure Tank: holds the resin that exchanges sodium for hardness minerals and is under water line pressure
  • Salt Tank or Cabinet: holds the salt that makes the brine solution used to regenerate the softening resin

How does a water softener work?
Water softeners remove hardness minerals (calcium and magnesium) through a process called ion exchange:

  1. Raw water runs through a bed of sodium charged softening resin contained in a pressure tank
  2. Hardness ions attach to the resin, exchanging with the harmless sodium ions
  3. Eventually the resin contains only hardness minerals and has to be regenerated
  4. The control valve monitors water usage and determines when to regenerate
  5. The resin is backwashed to rinse away impurities
  6. A strong brine solution is then drawn through the bed and hardness ions are exchanged for sodium ions
  7. The hardness ions are then rinsed to the drain
  8. The softener is now ready to soften again

Feel The Difference of Soft Water!

  • Spot-free and film-free dishes and glassware
  • Use 75% less soap
  • Cleaner, brighter, softer laundry
  • No scum rings in sinks and tubs
  • Soft, supple skin and silky hair

There are two key benefits of softening your water

  • Longevity of your plumbing and related equipment. Your pipes, fixtures, drains, water heater, and dishwasher all suffer when minerals build up inside them, eventually leading to problems you’ll have to pay for. A water softener helps prevent issues caused by hard water.
  • A cleaner home. Minerals can accumulate on your dishes, sinks, clothing, and hair when you wash them. If you want dishes without spots, hair and clothing that doesn’t feel grimy, or sinks and tubs without a strange patina of white, you need a water softener
