What is Hard Water?

Water that is “hard” contains more minerals than the water we ordinarily use in our homes. The elements of calcium and magnesium especially contribute to the hardness of water, as they are positively charged ions. Hard water is a problem because it results in mineral buildup on your water fixtures and prevents soap and detergent from dissolving properly in your water.

What is a Water Softener System?

Simply put, a water softener system removes the hard elements to make your water less positively charged. This improves the taste and makes it safer and less irritable to both you and your appliances.

Why Should You Use a Water Softener System?

Water softener systems improve the lifespan of your water-based appliances. When hard water evaporates, it leaves behind limescale deposits in your pipes. As these deposits accumulate, they restrict waterflow. They can even block your pipes completely.

Having a water softener system prevents limescale buildup in your pipes, keeping your laundry machines, dishwashers, and water filtration systems working efficiently. This expands the lifespan of both your household water systems and pipes, and can even contribute to improved efficiency of air-conditioner units and other water based appliances.

How Do Our Water Softener Systems Work?

Both of our water softener series get rid of hard minerals by switching them out with salt. The negatively charged resin bed found in all of our systems collect the positively charged magnesium and sodium ions. This process is known as ion exchange.

Our 89 Series

Our Green Energy 89 Water Softener Series uses upflow regeneration to drive hard minerals away from the resin and into the drain. Upflow regeneration systems flow water from bottom to top. They are more efficient than downflow regeneration systems. This saves both salt and the unused portion of the resin for future use.
