Common Water Softener Questions
How Do Water Softeners Work?
As hard water enters your home, it flows through the water softener, where the resin removes hard water minerals (like calcium and magnesium) from the water. The softened water then leaves the system to flow through the plumbing all around your home. Water softeners automatically undergo a process called regeneration to periodically flush out the minerals left behind during the softening cycle. That process uses a brine solution to clean and restore the resin’s ability to exchange sodium for hard water minerals. The brine solution and hard water minerals are flushed from the tank, leaving the resin beads within the water softening system refreshed and ready to continue removing hard water minerals.
How Can Soft Water Protect My Home?
Soft water can protect your home by reducing mineral deposits from accumulating in your dishwasher, water heater, washing machine and pipes. Without excess buildup, water-using appliances can operate more efficiently; this also prevents discoloration and wear. A dishwasher that uses soft water can also leave dishes looking cleaner, without spots or streaks. You may notice shower doors and tubs have less soap scum, while faucets and shower heads have less limescale buildup.
How Can A Water Softener Save Me Money?
Better water can pay for itself. Using softened cool water to wash clothes can deliver up to 24% in energy savings1. Additionally, washing your laundry, hair and body in soft water can yield up to 50% lower costs on detergents, soaps and shampoos2. By protecting your appliances and fixtures from hard-water damage, you’ll also save on costly repairs and replacements as well as the time and effort spent cleaning unsightly limescale buildup. Unlike descalers, rinse aid and conditioners that act as a short-term fix to these problems, a water softener provides long-term protection for you and your home.
