What Is A Water Softener?
Hard water is what causes pipes to clog and prevents detergents from dissolving. This is caused by a large amount of magnesium and calcium in the water. With water softening solutions, the ions, which create the hardening of the water, is removed. A water softener unit is attached to your water supply. This will help remove any of the minerals that cause the water to harden.
Hard water also increases your chances of lime deposit in your drinking water. When this lime builds-up in your system, it will create a blockage, which minimizes the efficiency of your boiler. You’ll see an increase in your monthly bill significantly because it is now taking longer for your water to heat up. Lime build up can also destroy your household appliances that rely on the flow of water, such as your washing machine.
When you have a water softening system installed, you’re able to prolong the life of your appliances and improve the efficiency of your air conditioner, heating system and other water-based appliances.
How It Works
Ions are removed with the use of a softener. They primarily remove calcium and magnesium ions that have built up in your system. Collectively, these ions are considered hardness minerals. It softens the minerals so that they can be effectively removed. It collects the minerals in a conditioning tank and continues to flush them into a drain. Ion exchangers are used to soften water. Applying an exchanger will help replace the harmful minerals with other ions, such as potassium or sodium. These are applied to the ion exchanger reservoir as salts. We sell solar salt, rock salt and evaporated salt.
Solar salt is collected through evaporated seawater. It has 85% sodium chloride and has insoluble water levels of approximately 0.03%. We typically sell it in crystal form but it can also be sold in pellets.
Rock salt happens naturally and comes directly from the ground. It is collected from salt deposits underneath the ground through mining efforts. It has approximately 98-99% sodium chloride. Its water insolubility level is approximately 1.5%, made up primarily of calcium sulphate.
Evaporated salt comes from underground mining of salt deposits. Evaporated moisture is using the energy of natural gases. It has about 99.6 – 99.99% sodium chloride. The salt should be added to your reservoir when the softener is being regenerated. The more frequent the softener is regenerated the more the salt will have to be applied.
Water softeners are important because they help establish the longevity of your household appliances. Nothing is worse than having your systems break down all at once, which is usually what occurs. This magnifies any problem that you are experiencing.
