Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to common Water Softener Installation questions.

What is water treatment?

Water treatment is the process of filtering or chemically treating water. The most effective ways to improve water quality are point of entry (POE) and point of use (POU). POE involves such products as water softeners and whole-house water filters. These water softeners remove such minerals as calcium and manganese that cause hard water or other sediment buildup from an incoming water source. POU involves such products as under-sink water filtration including reverse osmosis, which removes extremely harmful contaminants such as arsenic, lead, sulfate, chlorine, VOCs, rust, sediment and more.

How do water softeners work?

Water softeners filter out minerals like calcium and manganese to deprive your home of hard water. During this softening process some sodium is added to the water, about as much as a piece of bread. After installation, additional salt should be added to the softener about once a month to ensure the highest-quality, softened water.

What are the benefits of whole house water softeners and treatment systems?

Benefits of water softeners and treatment systems go beyond cleaner, odorless, better-tasting water. After softening hard water, your skin may feel softer, your hair silkier, soap suds may last longer and your clothes feel softer. All with a reduced need for detergents and cleansers! Appliances like water heaters, dishwashers and washing machines will not only perform more efficiently, but last longer. Pipes and other appliances will also benefit from the reduction of calcium and magnesium buildup. And don't forget the positive impact on the environment.

How much does a water softener cost to operate?

The benefits of softened water may outweigh the cost of the salt, water and energy required for operation. Water softener salt will likely amount to a few dollars per person, per month. Unless choosing the more expensive potassium chloride to avoid additional sodium and potassium intake, a homeowner should recoup this expense by the diminished need for soap and detergent. You also may minimize the higher water bills associated with water softener installation by selecting a water-efficient model with a control value that will prevent unnecessary regeneration. Finally, water softeners are very energy efficient, requiring less power to operate than most small household appliances.

Why does water need to be softened?

Water is never destroyed. The same water that nourished the dinosaurs nourishes us as the never-ending water cycle continues to purify the same water over and over. However, as water falls back to earth as rain, it picks up air pollutants and dust. Once it hits the ground, this universal solvent dissolves and collects everything from sediment to pesticides. In the U.S., 80-90% of the total available water supply comes from this ground water.
