Water Softeners

Water softening takes hard water and makes it soft by eliminating dissolved minerals (calcium, magnesium and iron) from water. Most people live in homes with hard water, including those on municipal water supplies. Some water treatment plants soften water to an extent, but not completely; therefore, most city water is still considered hard

Our water softeners are brilliantly designed to work. Period.

How a water softener works

Hard water is softened by removing the calcium and magnesium it contains. When hard water passes through the softening system’s resin bed, it exchanges the hard ions in the water for soft ones, so only softened water passes through to your home.

Once the resin bed fills up with hardness ions, it must be cleaned. Salt is typically used in the regeneration (cleaning) process and restores the resin to a “clean” state so the ion exchange process can begin again.
