Many people know what water softeners do as they are commonly suggested or recommended they need a water softener. You are often sold on the fact you need a water softener and for good reason. Making them a beneficial addition to your water supply, water softeners can remove the harsh chemicals from your water that is leaving you with irritated skin, lackluster hair, your laundry brittle, your dishes spotted with hard water stains, and crust building up on faucets and water based appliances. Water softeners are truly remarkable, but few realize how they work. We at AAA Water Team would like to take the opportunity to share how water softeners operate and their advantages.
Water Softener Parts
There are many options available for products and water softeners. Water softeners have a handful of models available that are boosted with variable features. Being comprised of two parts, the most common home water softening systems have: 1) A container that is used to store the salt, and the industry is referred to the “brine tank” and it looks like the garbage can. 2) At the top and holds a large number of beads, a second tank equipped with a control system and when you look inside this tank it would resemble the honeycomb construction. The water channeling through your home passes through the beads incased inside the second tank. Making your water hard is the calcium and magnesium and the beads trap them. Water is conditioned and is softened after the water passes through the system your water. With the control meter adorned on the top of the send tank measures the amount of water being used, you are informed with how much water you are using. To contain the minerals, the beads will need to be cleaned and regenerated over time. The water softener is no longer softening the water when your tank meets or even exceeds the capacity of the beads. To keep your water softener operating at peak performance, a periodic maintenance cleaning is essential.
Pros of a Water Softener

Harsh minerals are not expediting the deterioration process and clothes are thoroughly cleaned. Little to no residue or hard water spots and crust buildup, leaving tubs, sinks, and faucets clean. A soap residue is left behind, causing the skin and hair to dry out, so even your hair and body better cleaned.
2) Lifespan Extension of Appliances. The appliance can operate more efficiently and will require maintenance, without the unnecessary minerals accumulating in water-based appliances.
3) Faster Hot Water. Without the minerals slowing down the process, water heaters can produce more hot water faster. As you wait minutes for waters to flow hot water, less water is wasted.
