What is A Water Softener?

Water softener systems, also known as ion exchange units, help remove specific minerals from your home’s water system such as calcium and magnesium. By removing these minerals from your water you’ll be left with more efficient usable water.

What Does it Do?

By trapping minerals and exchanging them for things such as potassium or sodium, a water softener system allows only beneficial minerals into your water. This helps prolong things like your water heater, pipes, and other water systems throughout your home while leaving you with fresh and crisp water!

How A Water Softener Works

Entering your home through a water main, hard water will pass through your water softener before becoming usable within your home. Resin beads within the softener attract the hard minerals found within the water and keep them from entering your home, essentially eliminating them from your water altogether. The new “soft” water then enters your home’s plumbing system and becomes available for you to use.

The Benefits of A Water Softener

While hard water isn’t necessarily a bad thing, having a water softener installation within your home can provide you with many benefits such as the ones below.

  • Helps eliminate scale build-up
  • Extends the life of faucets and water heaters
  • Reduces hard water that can make your skin dry
  • Enhances the cleaning ability of other soaps and chemicals
  • Prolongs and protects your home’s pipes

Is Soft Water Safe To Drink?

When it comes to drinkable water, soft water from a softener system such as a Culligan water softener is considered to be extremely safe for human consumption. Even with the elevated sodium levels from the water softener salt, the minerals found in soft water are non-harmful when it comes to drinkable water.

What Size of Water Softener Do You Need?

Factoring in things such as the number of people within your home as well as their daily water usage is the first step toward sizing your water softener needs. On average, one person will use about 75-80 gallons of water per day, multiply that by the number of people in your home.

Next, you’ll want to figure out how much “hardness” needs to be removed from your water. This will vary depending on where you live as some places naturally have harder or softer water.

Now, multiply your total household water usage by the hardness of your current water, and that will give you the amount of hardness needed to be removed by a water softener system.

Replacing Your Water Softener

One of the benefits of a water softener installation is how long it can last. Providing you with fresh water anywhere from 10 to 20 years before needing replacement. Depending on the type and brand you have installed, water softener systems are a worthwhile investment that is like a gift that just keeps on giving!

Water Softener Maintenance

Keeping up with the maintenance of your home’s water softener system should be done at least once a year by a trusted professional such as the team at Tailored mechanical LLC. This ensures that your water softener installation and system are working as they should as well as keeping it efficient and safe for your home.
