Water is an essential part of daily living. We drink water, use it for cooking, cleaning, and bathing. Our appliances also use water, and the quality of that water can have an affect on the life of these things. Some of the signs to look for around your home to determine if you have hard water are calcium or scale build up on faucets, milky glassware, and using large amounts of soap to clean dishes or wash hair.
WaterServ will come and do an in home consultation to determine what type of water treatment is appropriate for your specific needs.
How does a softener work?
The hard water passes throught he media tank that contains resin beads coated with sodium ions. The calcium and magnesium ions are exchanged for sodium ions, thus softening the water. When the beads have trapped the hardness and need to be regenerated the control valve charges them with the brine from the bring tank.
As regeneration occurs, calcium and magnesium (hardness) ions are freed from the beads, replaced with sodium or potassium ions; and the system is ready to soften water again.
