Our Water Softener Process
While water is in the ground, it’s inevitable that it picks up soluble bits of whatever it passes through. The water typically contains minerals found in the earth that make our water hard; of these, calcium and magnesium are of importance because it affects the water’s ability to function in our homes and businesses.
These particles aren’t able to allow things like soap and detergent to dissolve completely, instead, it combines and leaves a sticky residue on your dishes, tiles and can leave your hair and skin feeling dull and lifeless.
Aside from that, another thing to be concerned about with hard water is its direct effect on your plumbing system. Magnesium and calcium deposits can build up in our pipes, deducing flows to taps and appliances. With time, these buildups can reduce the efficiency and lifespan of your plumbing system, making a water softener installation even more critical in your home.
Our Fleck© water softeners are mechanical appliances that are plumbed into your home’s water supply system. All water softeners operate the same; they trade minerals such as calcium and magnesium for sodium. This formal process is called an ion exchange.
How it works:
- Hard water enters your home through a well or main pipe and travels to the water softener
- Resin beads in the tank attract and hold on to the minerals in the hold water, removing them entirely
- ‘Softened’ water now exists the tank and flows to the plumbing throughout your home
After some time, the resin beads must be rinsed and free of the minerals. This process is called the regeneration cycle, and it’s important to ensure it’s done correctly so only soft water enters your home.
