Many homeowners are dealing with an issue they don't even realize exists. It's called hard water, and it can do significant harm. Fortunately, a simple mechanical solution is available: a water softener.
When it comes to residential water softener installation services, our offerings are second to none.
What Is Hard Water?Hard water, simply put, is water with a high degree of mineral content. And it can cause problems like the following:
- Dry skin
- Damaged hair
- Scales on faucets
- Hard-to-remove film on bathtubs and sinks
- Water heater wear and tear
- Ruined dishwashers, coffeemakers, and other kitchen appliances
How Does a Water Softener Work?The water softening process begins when hard water goes into the system's mineral tank. Inside that tank are resin beads, which are often made of a synthetic material called polystyrene. Those beads are negatively charged.
The resin beads attract the magnesium and calcium in the hard water, which are positively charged. As we learned in high school chemistry, opposites attract. The harmless soft water can then flow through your pipes.
In addition to the mineral tank, water softeners typically have two other major components. There's the control valve, which regulates the amount of water that exits the mineral tank.
There's also the brine tank, a smaller tank beside the mineral tank that stores salt or potassium. The brine tank sends salty water through the mineral tank to clean and recharge the resin beads.
By the way, in some cases, the brine tank and mineral tank are combined into one larger unit.
Our Outstanding InstallationsWhen you hire us to set up your new water softener, you can enjoy expert service that's courteous, professional, and highly effective. We're fully licensed and insured, too, and we follow all applicable regulations.
First of all, if you have a water softener that you'd like to replace, we could uninstall it and take it away.
On the other hand, if you've never owned a water softener before, we could help you find the ideal spot in your home for it. It'll be a place that's out of your way yet close to a power source, a drain, and your plumbing system. After all, this machinery must be connected to your supply of water.
On the day you schedule your installation with us, we'll arrive on time. We'll carefully carry all of the equipment inside, set everything up, test the machines, and clean up after ourselves thoroughly.
Plus, we'll fit the tubing securely. And, if we must cut any pipes, we'll do so with great skill and finesse.
