Our High Quality Water Softening Systems for Georgia
Water Softening Basics
Water is the Earth’s universal solvent. As water passes through the atmosphere in the form of rain, snow, sleep, hail, dew, or fog, it picks up impurities and gases. It also picks up impurities as it travels through the earth as ground water. Calcium and magnesium are in plentiful supply. While they are not found in their elemental form in the earth, they occur in combination with other elements in an abundance of forms. The term harness was originally applied to waters that were hard to wash in, referring to the soap wasting properties of hard water. Dissolved calcium and magnesium are the primary hard water minerals that are responsible for most scaling in pipes and water heaters. Hard water causes numerous problems in laundry, kitchens, and baths. Hardness prevents soap from lathering by causing the development of an insoluble curdy precipitate in the water. Soft water is water that contains few or no hard minerals, such as calcium and magnesium.
Our Water Softening Process
Water softening involves a process referred to as an “ion exchange”. This removes dissolved minerals that cannot be trapped by a standard filter. Softeners use fresh resin beads that have sodium ions attached to them. As water enters the tank, dissolved calcium and magnesium are attracted to the resin. The resin then exchanges the sodium for the dissolved minerals. The water is rid of these impurities leaving you with softer, mineral-free water that is much easier on everything that uses water. When the resin beads become exhausted by removing the hardness minerals, a process called regeneration occurs. This restores the effectiveness of the resin beads, enabling the water softener to continue to create soft water.
Our Water Softening Systems
Because water is a precious resource, we are constantly looking for ways to use technology to conserve it, which is why we provide W.E.T. Water Efficient Technology tracks your 90-day water consumption history along with hourly usage of each day. This is important because your system knows exactly when to regenerate which ensures you will never go a day without soft water. When combined with proportional brining, a process that saves you salt, it allows a water softener to be one of the most efficient appliances in your home.
Our water softening systems incorporate W.E.T. technology – saving you money by maximizing efficiency. Click here to watch a brief video demonstrating W.E.T. technology.
Advantages of Water Softening:
- No scale buildup on sinks and faucets.
- Less soap scum and stains in tubs, showers, and shower doors.
- Cleaner, brighter clothes and whiter whites.
- Softer laundry, linens and towels.
- Cleaner, smoother skin and hair.
- Spotless dishware.
- Reduced hard water buildup in your dishwasher, hot water tank, and tank-less water heater. Water will heat faster.
- Appliances work more efficiently and last years longer.
- Pipes are cleaner with less corrosive elements and scale buildup.
- Appliances need less detergent and soap, which helps you save money and causes less harm to the environment.
