WATER SOFTENER SYSTEM INSTALLATION
According to a study published by the U.S Geological Survey (USGS), the water in Arizona is considered ‘hard water’ due to the fact that it often contains a high amount of calcium carbonate. Not only could this alter the taste of your drinking water, but it could also cause damage to your pipes, amongst other problems. As a result, it’s no surprise that homeowners in Phoenix, Arizona and the surrounding areas are encouraged to install water softener systems in their homes.
At Water Pros Plumbing, our team of experts are on hand to install a water softener system in your home – giving you quick and easy access to clean, fresh water.
What is hard water?
Hard water is, quite simply, water that contains high amounts of minerals such as calcium and magnesium. These minerals are picked up when water runs through porous rocks and substances such as limestone and chalk, before entering our water streams.
Why do I need a water softener?
There are many benefits associated with installing a water softener system in your home.
Prevent the build-up of limescale. Soft water can prevent the build-up of limescale inside your pipes and fixtures. It can also dissolve limescale that may have already built up in these areas, which will lengthen the life of these appliances and reduce damage. For example, the removal of limescale in pipes can improve the efficiency of heating fixtures, lowering your energy bills while keeping your home warm.
Cleaner dishes. Hard water contains a variety of minerals that make it difficult to create a soapy lather when cleaning your dishes and glassware. As a result, using a water softener can guarantee cleaner dishes and glassware, without any dirt or soap residue. This can also work to the same effect when it comes to cleaning your clothes. In fact, many users find that soft water leaves their clothes looking brighter for longer, too. As a result, you may find that you spend less money on clothes as you do not need to replace them as often.
Better skin. As discussed above, hard water makes it more difficult to remove soap scum from a range of surfaces, including your skin. This reduces the chances of you experiencing clogged pores, which leads to a variety of skin care complaints. Hard water can also make it more difficult to remove products such as shampoo and conditioner from your hair, while also drying it out. Many users who install water softeners find that both their skin and hair appear (and feel) better once they’re no longer contending with hard water.
Less soap scum. Soap scum can also build up on fixtures within your home, such as your bathtub and sink. This can make the spaces feel dirty, even if you spend hours trying to clean them. By making the switch to soft water, you can remove soapy residue, leaving your home looking as good as new.
How does a water softener work?
Once installed within a home or business, a water softener works as a filtration system that removes minerals, such as calcium and magnesium from your water. This means that it can be used to turn hard water into soft water. This process is completed through a process known scientifically as ion exchange.
Your water softener system will contain plastic resin, which is covered in molecules that ‘attract and bind to positive ions dissolved in the water’. As such, any calcium and magnesium positive ions in the hard water will stick to the resin and are therefore subsequently removed and replaced with sodium ions.
Should you decide to install a water softener system in your home, a member of our team will be able to discuss the process with you in more detail and answer any questions you may have.
