Water Softener Guide

WHAT DOES A WATER SOFTENER DO?

A water softener removes minerals & scale from the water, in a process called ion exchange. Hard water enters the water softer and runs through resin beads, the resin beads replace hard ions with soft ions, making a water.

Do I need a water softener?

Below are some reasons you may need a water softener:

  1. Have your water tested for high mineral levels. If the levels come back high that may be cause for concern.
  2. If you are having problems with hard water stains or scale build-up in your bathtub and faucets.
  3. If you have sensitive skin or excessively dry skin.
  4. If you live by a lake, canyon, or newly developed area.

What can a water softener do for you?

It will:

  • save you up to 50% in soap and detergent usage throughout the year.
  • make your clothes weather the laundry process.
  • prevent mineral buildup in your water pipes & water heater.
  • prevent mineral stains on faucets & porcelain surfaces.
  • make your hair and skin feel softer.

If you have any questions or not exactly sure what to do, please contact your local Salt Lake City plumber for a no obligation evaluation on your water softener.
