Get Rid of Hard Water with Help from a Water Softener System

When excess minerals contact your potable water supply, it may contribute to hard water. Hard water can cause dry skin and damage the hair. It also contributes to steady mineral buildup in your pipes and appliances, which could cause further problems including corrosion. Thankfully, a water softener system offers an effective solution. With water softener installation, you can enjoy better water that’s easier on your skin and hair while also reducing any negative impact on the plumbing itself.

Finding the Best Water Softener System

Salt-Based (Ion Exchange) Water Softeners: The sodium ion exchange is by far the most popular type of water softener process. As mentioned earlier, salt-based water softeners rely on positively charged sodium ions to attract negatively-charged hard water minerals. While highly effective, they do still require a small amount of upkeep. Maintenance usually consists of replenishing the system’s supply of salt.

There are even a few salt-based systems that use a dual-tank design. Dual-tank water softeners may be a useful option if you’re concerned about the tank failing, since there’s another that can be used as a backup.

Salt-Free Water Softeners

Other water softener systems use a potassium-chloride substitute rather than the ion exchange process to resolve hard water. Salt-free systems may require more up-front installation costs, but their maintenance needs are also generally lower. Before deciding, learn what you can about a few different water softeners so you know what’s best for your plumbing. We encourage you to reach out to explore possible options with an experienced professional.

Other forms of water treatment are labeled water softener systems even though they are designed differently.

Magnetic water softener: Newer designs reduce mineral buildup with a magnetic field surrounding the plumbing. Without the ability to bond together, the minerals simply break down in the water.

What Is a Water Softener System?

A water softener extracts minerals from hard water. This usually means calcium and magnesium, a common culprit of scale buildup and other issues in your plumbing. To soften water, the equipment uses a chemical reaction known as ion exchange. Here’s how they work, step by step:

  1. Hard water enters a softener systems’ tank, where it contacts special resin beads coated with sodium ions.
  2. These beads of resin attract the calcium and magnesium ions in the water, before swapping places with the sodium ions.
  3. Once the minerals are gone, the now-softened water is pumped from the tank to be deposited back in your plumbing system.

How Do They Work?

When installed correctly, water softeners keep these minerals out of your potable water supply. Now that hard water is out of the picture, you can enjoy several benefits like:


No stains on clothing or dishes

Softened water doesn’t reduce the effectiveness of soap and detergent, which means cleaner dishes and laundry.

Enhanced hair and skin

Water softeners can enhance hair and skin by reducing the harshness of minerals, resulting in smoother, softer, and more manageable hair and skin.



Longer-lasting plumbing and appliances

Softened water helps reduce scale and other mineral deposits, helping prolong the life span of your plumbing and appliances.
