When tap water contains a high level (>7 grains per gallon) of calcium and magnesium minerals it is called hard water. Hard water can cause many problems in the home or business. Hard water leaves ugly white spots and streaks on silverware, glasses, pots and other cookware. Hard water also reduces the effectiveness of dishwashing detergents, making dishes harder to clean by hand and in the dishwasher. Soaps react with hard water, forming curd or soap scum on shower and tub surfaces. Soap scum requires cleaning chemicals and a lot of scrubbing to scrape it off tiles, sinks, tubs and shower doors. Hard water even makes it difficult to wash your car because it leaves hard to clean white spots on the glass, chrome and paint. But thats not all. Hard water can create real damage to your home and appliances.

How does a water softener filter system work?

Water softener filter systems typically use an ion exchange process. They contain resin beads that attract and remove the minerals responsible for water hardness, replacing them with sodium or potassium ions.

What are the benefits of using a water softener filter system?

Using a water softener filter system can provide several benefits, including reduced scale buildup, softer and smoother skin and hair, extended appliance lifespan, improved efficiency of water heaters, and better lathering and cleaning with soaps and detergents.

How often should the resin beads be replaced?

The lifespan of resin beads in a water softener filter system can vary based on usage and water quality. On average, they can last between 2-3 years before requiring replacement

Does a water softener filter system remove all impurities from water?

Water softener filter systems primarily target minerals that cause hardness, but they may not remove other impurities like chlorine, sediment, or bacteria. To address these, additional filters or treatment methods may be needed.

How often should the salt be replenished in a water softener filter system?

The frequency of salt replenishment depends on the system's size and the amount of water being treated. Typically, salt needs to be added every few weeks or months.

Can a water softener filter system be installed for the whole house?

Yes, water softener filter systems are available in different sizes to accommodate whole-house applications. These systems are usually installed at the point of entry of the water supply, treating all the water that enters the house.

Is softened water safe to drink?

While water softened by a traditional water softener filter system is generally safe to drink, it may contain elevated sodium levels due to the ion exchange process. If sodium intake is a concern, alternative options like reverse osmosis systems can be used for drinking water.

How can I determine the right size of water softener filter system for my home?

To determine the appropriate size, consider factors such as the water hardness level, the number of people in your household, and the average water usage. It's recommended to consult with a professional to ensure you select the right-sized system for your specific needs.
