What Is a Water Softener System?
This is actually a fairly simple concept. Sodium chloride—salt—is used to treat hard water that is making its way through your plumbing system. Hard water is that which contains high levels of minerals—namely calcium, magnesium, and iron.
As this hard water passes through the softener, it goes over a collection of resin beads. This creates an exchange of ions, as the resin beads attract the minerals that are in the water and replace them with sodium ions. The minerals are flushed out of the softener with a salt brine once the beads are saturated, and then the process starts again.
Is Hard Water Harmful?
Hard water is not actually unhealthy to ingest. In fact, it won’t impact your health at all. However, what it does impact is your quality of life, as well as your plumbing. Hard water is what leaves that white spotty residue on your glassware and dishes straight out of the dishwasher. It’s what leaves you feeling dry and your hair feeling slimy when you step out of the shower. It’s also what makes your clothes fade and degrade in the washing machine far quicker than they normally would.
Have you ever noticed a white or yellow buildup on your shower heads and drains? This is another result of hard water. Sure, you can go buy some heaving duty cleaners and remove the residue—but the same effects of hard water you see on the outside are occurring on the inside, too. To truly address this problem, you need to nix the store bought cleaning solutions and instead invest in a whole–house water softener system.
