How Does a Water Softener Work?


Winning the Battle Against Hard Water

Water SoftenersMany people have hard water. Some homeowners may be unclear about what hard water really is, but when specific problems arise they will become all too familiar. Hard water typically comes with a multitude of problems; it clogs faucets and pipes, ruins small appliances, stains clothing, and creates an irritating film on hair and skin. Hard water comes from using well water or another water source that is high in certain minerals, specifically magnesium and calcium. The water is relatively safe to drink, but when it comes into constant contact with metal or plastic surfaces, it has a tendency to create a lot of buildup. This is when you need a reliable Allentown plumber from Schuler Service to install a water softener.

How does a water softener work? A water softener is designed to remove minerals that cause hard water. This is accomplished by filtering the water through a tank of resin beads and replacing unwanted minerals with sodium. Certain water softeners can be placed on individual water supplies, such as under the sink, to control the water that is coming out of the kitchen tap, or they can be fitted to supply treated water to the entire house at one time. Many times water softeners are installed where the water enters the home, so that it can be systematically treated before it is dispersed to various faucets and appliances. This is the easiest way to deal with hard water, it is also the most effective, because these types of systems do not have to constantly be changed.
