Residential Water Softeners
Many residents living in Pennsylvania or New Jersey live in homes with hard water. Afterall, nearly 85% of homes across the United States have hard water. Over time this can become a troublesome and expensive issue. When groundwater passes through your home’s pipes, it combines with heat, leading to scale and buildup that can harm your plumbing, appliances, and fixtures.
Fortunately, a water softener provides an effective solution by utilizing a process called ion exchange to remove the minerals responsible for hardness. Within the water softener, resin captures the mineral ions that cause damage and hardness, replacing them with sodium and potassium ions. This ensures that your home’s water is softened and prevents further damage to your household items.
Soft water provides several benefits for both your household and personal well-being. By preventing the buildup of mineral scale in your pipes, appliances, and fixtures, you can extend the lifespan of your plumbing system, water heaters, washing machines, and other water-utilizing appliances.
That’s not all! Soft water helps laundry detergents and soaps work more effectively. It improves their ability to dissolve and remove dirt, oils, and stains from fabrics, providing you with cleaner, softer, and more comfortable clothing and linens. Soft water is also generally gentler on your skin and hair. Showering with soft water may result in smoother skin, silkier hair, and a more enjoyable bathing experience.
