Many homeowners are often recommended water softeners for their home. Water softeners are designed to remove the harsh chemicals from your water that is leaving your dishes spotted with hard water stains, your laundry brittle, and crust building up on faucets and water based appliances and offer an ideal addition to your home. Water softeners are truly an asset to your home, but many do not understand exactly how they do the remarkable things they were engineered for. With this in mind, we at AAA Water Team would like to discuss the function of how the water softeners work and their benefits.
How a Water Softener Works
There are many options available for products and water softeners are no different like most things in today’s world. Water softeners have a handful of models available, each enhanced with various features. Most popular models include two parts: 1) What the industry is referred to as the “brine tank”, which is a container that is reminiscent of a garbage can that is used to store the salt. 2) A second tank that if you looked inside this tank it would look like a honeycomb construction and is equipped with a control system at the top and holds a large number of beads. Through the second tank and the beads encased within, the water channeling through your home passes. Your water is conditioned and is softened, after the water passes through the system. The second tank that measures the amount of water being used, and you are informed with how much water you are using with the control meter adorned the top. The beads will need to be cleaned and regenerated to contain the minerals over time. The water softener is no longer softening the water when your tank meets or even exceeds the capacity of the beads. A periodic maintenance cleaning will get your water softener operating at peak performance.

Without the harsh minerals not expediting the deterioration process, the clothes are thoroughly cleaned. There will be no crust buildup, and the tubs, sinks, and faucets don’t have a residue or hard water spots. Also, your hair and body are better cleaned since the hard water will leave a soap residue behind that dries out your skin and hair.
2. Extended lifespan extended. The appliance can operate more efficiently and will require maintenance, without the unnecessary minerals accumulating in water-based appliances.
3. Accelerated water heating. Additionally, without the minerals slowing down the process, water heaters can produce more hot water faster. Less water is wasted as you wait minutes for waters to flow hot water.
4. Gentler on the plumbing system. From the minerals making the water flow, plumbing network is spared the scaly deposit buildup. Water flow more freely and minimizing the natural deterioration of faucets, pipes, and other plumbing fixtures.
