Why do you need a residential water softener for your home?

Ever notice white deposits forming on your pots and pans? Feel like you’re shelling out more money on plumbing? Realize that your skin feels leathery and hair feels dirty no matter how many showers you take? You need a water softener.

Hard water is softened by removing calcium, magnesium, iron, and manganese. As the water enters the resin bed in the softening system, these cations are replaced with sodium ions through ion exchange. The amount of time necessary to fill a resin bed is dependent on the water usage and the number of people in the household. However, once the resin bed is full, salt must be added to “clean” the resin so the ion exchange process can restart.

A Kinetico water softener will protect your home by removing hard water spots, caring for your electric appliances, eliminating rust or stains, taking away bad tastes and odors. Additionally, you and your family will notice softer skin, healthier hair, and cleaner clothes.

Home Water Softeners to Solve Hard Water Problems

Hard water can cause all sorts of problems for homeowners . It causes limescale that clogs your pipes and appliances, prevents soap and detergent from working effectively, makes your skin and hair seem dull and lifeless, causes unsightly stains and generally isn’t good for your health.

If you live in a hard water area, as many Americans do, a water softener system for house use will solve all your problems. But before you install one, you need to know the extent of the problems you have and how best to resolve them.

Benefits of Installing a Whole House Water Softener System

Unlike a pitcher filter that only delivers a small quantity of softened water for drinking, a whole-house residential water softener for home use covers all the water you consume. It provides:

better tasting water for drinking and cooking

pipes and appliances that aren’t clogged by limescale, lengthening their lives and preventing problems

a reduction in the need for bottled water, which helps the environment by reducing the amount of plastic going to landfill

increased effectiveness of soaps and detergents so you save money by using less (up to 70% less according to some studies) as well as getting cleaner clothes, crockery and cutlery

fewer unsightly stains caused by limescale

shinier hair and softer skin

improved health, especially for those with skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis that can be aggravated by hard water

reduced energy bills since soft water is easier and quicker to heat than hard water which contains many dissolved minerals.

The Best Home Water Softeners System for You

Water softeners for home work by replacing with sodium ions the calcium and magnesium ions that cause hard water. There are some concerns that the sodium salts flushed out of a water softener can contaminate groundwater and be harmful to the environment. However, the average family water softener only regenerates and flushes two or three times each week so the effect is minimal.

Concerns have, however, resulted in several areas banning or restricting the use of salt-based water softeners. If you’re affected by this, you can instead install a water conditioner equipment that requires no chemicals or anything else to be added to the process but instead crystallizes the minerals that cause hardness so that they solidify and don’t cause limescale to form. Although such a device doesn’t soften water, it does reduce its effects and can be very effective against water that isn’t too hard.

As one of the best water conditioning service company, we can advise you on the best and most relevant system for you, especially after conducting a test of your water to assess its hardness and any other problems. Installing a combination of water filters and a Kinetico water softener will ensure your water is as soft and pure as it can be. That will improve your health, increase your enjoyment of food and drinks, enhance your appearance, prevent appliance and plumbing problems and save you money on daily costs. So it’s something you really can’t afford to delay doing.
