Eliminate Hard Water with a Water Softener System

When excess minerals contact your potable water supply, it can lead to the formation of 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 can eventually lead to problems. Luckily, a water softener system is the perfect answer. Once a water softener is installed, you can enjoy high-quality water that’s gentler on your skin and hair while also avoiding any damage to the pipes themselves.

We’re happy to help you find the best available model to satisfy your water treatment needs and provide a hassle-free installation process. We’ll also keep it in the best possible shape with repair and maintenance services. Between improving water quality and protecting the plumbing, water softener service from Crawford Services can help.

Selecting the Right Water Softener System

Salt-Based (Ion Exchange) Water Softeners: The sodium ion exchange is far and away the most prevalent type of water softener technique. Like we said before, salt-based water softeners take advantage of positively charged sodium ions to attract negatively-charged hard water minerals. While highly effective, water softeners still do best with some upkeep. Maintenance is generally comprised of replacing 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, because the second tank can serve as a backup.

Salt-Free Water Softeners

Some water softener systems use a potassium-chloride substitute as opposed to the ion exchange process to manage hard water. Salt-free systems may require more up-front installation costs, but their maintenance needs are also generally lower. Before you decide, try to get a sense of several water softeners so you know what design or features are best for you. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you want to explore possible options with an experienced professional.

Different types of equipment may be 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 remain water-soluble and break down before they accumulate.

What Is a Water Softener System?

A water softener extracts minerals from potable water. This includes elements like calcium and magnesium, a common culprit of scale buildup and other issues in your plumbing. In order to remove these minerals, water softeners utilize a chemical reaction known as ion exchange. Here’s how it works:

  1. Hard water flows into the softener systems’ tank, contacting specialized resin beads coated with sodium ions.
  2. These beads of resin attract the calcium and magnesium ions in the water, exchanging them with the supply of sodium ions.
  3. After the hard minerals are extracted, the now-softened water exits the tank and reenters your plumbing system.

How Do They Work?

As long as it’s working properly, your water softener system will keep these minerals out of your potable water supply. Now that hard water is out of the picture, you can make the most of the benefits, like:


No stains on clothing or dishes

Softened water can improve the effectiveness of soap and detergent, providing cleaner dishes and laundry.

Softer 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 limits scale and other mineral deposits, helping prolong the life span of your plumbing and appliances.

Overall, a water softener is a great investment when homeowners want to improve their potable water’s quality and protect their home’s plumbing and appliances.
