Residential Water Softeners
Living in a home with hard water can be a costly problem. When groundwater flows through the pipes of your home the dissolved minerals combine with heat, leaving scale and buildup that damages your pipes, appliances, and fixtures. A water softener works to treat hard water by removing the minerals responsible through a process called ion exchange. Mineral ions that cause hardness and damage to your home are trapped by resin within the system and exchanged for sodium and potassium ions.
