Clearwater Water Softener Installation
Water is naturally rich in minerals like calcium and magnesium, but too much can be harmful. The amount of minerals in the water determines whether it is "hard" water or "soft". Hard water has higher levels of calcium, magnesium, and other minerals than soft water. One Green Filter will install a Clearwater water softener to control these levels, and protect you from hard water.
Do I Need To Soften My Home’s Water?
It is not necessary just to soften water. Your decision to soften your water is an individual one that will affect the quality of your home and the environment. A water softener may be required if your water hardness exceeds 7 grains per gallon (120 mg/L) to maintain the performance of your appliances and improve the taste, aroma, and appearance of your water. It is very important you have your water softener installation in Clearwater done by a professional.
Know The Hardness Of Your Water
Learn about the hardness of your water to determine if you require a Clearwater water softener. A test kit or independent laboratory can determine the hardness of your water. You can even have a home water test done to check water levels.
Home Water Softening Has Many Advantages
- It prevents the buildup of minerals (scale), on the pipes, fixtures, and hot water heaters.
- Some appliances have a longer life expectancy.
- Mineral spots are reduced or prevented from appearing on glassware
- Reduces soap film and detergent curds in washing machines, tubs, and sinks.
What Are The Working Principles Of Home Softeners?
Ion exchange units are also known as home water softeners. They remove calcium, magnesium, and other minerals from your drinking water. The softener's resin beads trap calcium and magnesium and then exchange them for potassium or sodium. The resin beads are contaminated with calcium and magnesium. A concentrated salt or potassium solution is used to remove calcium and magnesium. The chloride solution that passes through the beads becomes a waste stream and eventually goes into the drain.
Is Soft Water Safe To Drink?
Soft water is safe to drink. The resin beads release sodium when they grab hold of hardness minerals. The sodium content of softened water is not harmful and is actually far lower than is commonly believed. For example, if you have moderately-hard water (about 86ppm), then that adds 37 mgs sodium to each quart. This is less than 2% of your daily recommended sodium intake. White bread contains 170 mgs of sodium per slice, while pizza has 640 mgs. Water softeners add very little sodium to white bread, and pizza has about 640 mgs.
A Clearwater water softener will add sodium to your water in proportion to how many hardness minerals you have reduced. The softener releases 2 mg of sodium for every milligram in hardness. If you live in an area that has extremely hard water, this is a problem. To treat your water, you should combine a water softener and a reverse osmosis system if it has a hardness of more than 400ppm. Reverse osmosis systems push water through semipermeable membranes that can remove almost all dissolved solids for the purest form of drinking water.
