Water Softener Installation, Maintenance & Repair Services in Beavercreek, OH

Water softeners are directly connected to residential 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. Furthermore, regular maintenance of your water treatment system is crucial to ensure its optimal performance and longevity.

How Water Softening Systems Work

Water softeners are essential appliances that work to alleviate the issues associated with hard water by removing excess minerals such as calcium and magnesium. They operate through a process known as ion exchange, which occurs within a tank filled with resin beads. As hard water flows through the tank, the resin beads attract and capture the positively charged calcium and magnesium ions, effectively removing them from the water. In exchange, the resin beads release sodium ions into the water, resulting in softened water that is free from the harmful effects of hard minerals.

Once the resin beads become saturated with calcium and magnesium ions, the water softener enters a regeneration cycle to recharge the resin. During regeneration, a brine solution, typically composed of salt and water, is flushed through the tank. The high concentration of sodium ions in the brine solution displaces the calcium and magnesium ions on the resin beads, effectively resetting them for another cycle of ion exchange. The displaced calcium and magnesium ions, along with any other accumulated debris, are then flushed out of the system, leaving the resin beads refreshed and ready to continue softening the incoming water. 

What is Reverse Osmosis?

Reverse osmosis is a water purification process that utilizes a semi-permeable membrane to remove impurities and contaminants from water. During reverse osmosis, water is forced through the membrane under pressure, while impurities such as dissolved minerals, chemicals, and microorganisms are left behind. The membrane’s microscopic pores allow only water molecules to pass through, resulting in purified water on one side of the membrane and concentrated contaminants on the other.

Reverse osmosis systems typically consist of multiple filtration stages, including pre-filters to remove larger particles, activated carbon filters to absorb organic compounds and chlorine, and the semi-permeable membrane for removing dissolved solids. The purified water produced by reverse osmosis is often referred to as “permeate,” while the concentrated wastewater containing the rejected contaminants is called “brine” or “reject water.” Reverse osmosis is highly effective in producing clean, great-tasting drinking water and is commonly used in residential, commercial, and industrial settings to improve water quality and safety.

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.
