What Is A Water Softener?

It’s likely that you will have heard of people using a water filtration system inside their homes. A home water softener will remove high concentrations of magnesium and calcium that are causing hard water. When water flows through a water softener, the system will continue to filter out these hard water minerals and leave the water in the system able to flow through the plumbing easier.

How Water Gets Hard

Water hardness describes water f in your plumbing that has higher concentrations of various minerals. Most of the minerals found in your water supply will be calcium and magnesium. Because of the chemical structure of these items calcium and magnesium can bond with metal. This can pose a huge risk for your plumbing. As your plumbing gunks up with calcium and mineral deposits over time, this will often lead to added strain on your pipes and ongoing lasting effects that you’ll notice in almost every aspect of your home appliances.

How A Water Softener Can Help

A water softener works just like a magnet to repel the various minerals found in your water. It doesn’t work in the same way as a traditional magnet, but rather removes the harmful components to reprocess of ionization. The system will continue to regenerate itself and offer benefits to regular maintenance. The calcium and magnesium as well as other minerals will stay in the water softener while soft water is pumped throughout the home.

If you begin to notice the signs of hard water such as a Crestor mineral buildup throughout your appliances, stiff clothing coming out of your laundry, dry skin or dull hair after showering or soap scum buildup along your shower walls this can all be a sign that you are facing hard water.
