Water Softener Installation, Maintenance & Repair Services in Beavercreek
Water softeners are directly connected to residential and commercial plumbing systems and major appliances to work together in a seamless way. Using a process known as ion exchange, water softeners extract excess minerals (like calcium and magnesium) from the water supply and this softens otherwise hard water, prevents rust and calcium buildup as well as other problems, which are harsh on pipes, water heaters and other appliances. Water softeners make cleaning the house easier and make the house smell better often. Your water will taste much better, which lengthens the service life of any sort of appliance using your water. Keep in mind the size of your water softener and other factors can affect your water pressure. If it does, we can help you adjust it to compensate and resolve low water pressure issues caused by water softeners. In any case, when you have an expert like Beavercreek Plumbing & Drain install your water heater, it will last longer than doing it yourself as long as you remember to change your water filters when necessary.
How Water Softening Systems Work
To determine the best water softening system for your home or commercial building or business, our water softening experts first test the water supply itself to see what types of minerals or metals might be in excess. We measure the hardness of water in grains per gallon. Each water softening system then uses a brine tank, which contains all the salt necessary to soften large quantities of water. Your water level should always be a little bit lower than your tank’s salt level, which is located in the system’s brine tank. Here, the water comes into contact with the salt to absorb it and create the right concentration of brine and sodium. To do this, the water softener’s tank is filled with thousands of tiny beads known as “resin beads.” When excess minerals and metals in the water come in contact with these resin beads, they bind together and remove what needs to be taken out when the water moves out of the tank.
What is a Reverse Osmosis System?
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a water treatment process that extracts contaminants from the water supply coming into a home or building with pressure used to force water molecules through a semipermeable membrane. During the RO process, water contaminants are filtered out and flushed away. A reverse osmosis system leaves you with clean, healthy and delicious drinking water that is free of sediment and chlorine. When tap water exits the reverse osmosis membrane, it passes through a postfilter after the first filter. The post-filter puts the finishing touches on the water before it goes to the faucet for drinking.

Removes Any Unwanted Tastes from Your Drinking Water
A water softener will help remove stuff from your water supply that you’d rather not have to drink or shower in. With a water softener, you can turn on your tap and can drink fresh filtered water any time.
Soft Water Is Easier on Your Pipes and Appliances
Soft water is better for your pipes and home appliances. It prevents scale buildup on your plumbing equipment, as well as damage to dishwashers, clothing washers and hot water heaters. Soft water also helps avoid scale-related plumbing problems in the future.
Softer Water Will Save You Money
The scale buildup that hard water creates also forms inside your hot water tank. The more buildup present, the harder your tank will work, causing it to use more energy. In short, that calcium buildup creates a barrier that prevents the tank from heating up

What is a water softener?
A Water Softener is a filtration system that works to remove high concentrations of calcium and magnesium that cause hard water. When water flows through a water softener, the system filters out these hard water minerals, and the softened water then leaves the water softening system to flow through plumbing.
What is hard water?
When water is referred to as ‘hard’ this means that it contains more minerals than plain water. These are especially the minerals calcium and magnesium. The degree of hardness of the water increases, when more calcium and magnesium dissolve. Magnesium and calcium are positively charged ions. Because of their presence, other positively charged ions will dissolve less easily in hard water than in water that does not contain calcium and magnesium. This is the cause of the fact that soap doesn’t really dissolve in hard water.
How often should one add salt to a softener?
Salt is usually added to the reservoir during the regeneration of the softener. The more often a softener is regenerated, the more often salt needs to be added. Usually, water softeners are checked once a month. To guarantee a satisfactory production of soft water, the salt level should be kept at least half-full at all times.
