Water Softeners – How to Treat Hard Water in Arizona
Hard water is a common issue in Arizona due to the high mineral content in the water. These minerals, mainly calcium and magnesium, can cause problems such as clogged pipes, damaged appliances and even dry skin and hair. Fortunately, a water softener installation is an effective solution for treating hard water.
A water softener works by removing the minerals that cause hardness from the water. The softener contains a tank filled with resin beads, which attract and remove the minerals as the water flows through. The softener then regenerates the resin by flushing it with a salt solution, which allows the minerals to be removed and the resin to be reused.
Shadrach Plumbing & Cooling has the expertise to help with your hard water issues. A water softener installation isn’t difficult. The process typically includes these basic steps:
- The first step is to test the hardness level of your water, which is measured in grains per gallon (GPG) and will determine the size of the water softener you need.
- Once the level of hardness is determined, Shadrach will help you select the correct size water softener for your household. It’s also important to consider factors such as water usage, regeneration frequency and maintenance requirements.
- Once you have chosen the right water softener, a professional Shadrach plumber will install it by connecting the softener to your home’s water supply and drainage system.
- The next step will be to establish the regeneration schedule for your water softener based on your household’s water usage and the hardness level of your water. This will ensure that the resin beads are properly cleaned and ready to remove the minerals from the water.
- To keep your water softener functioning properly, it’s important to perform regular maintenance, such as checking the salt level, cleaning the resin tank, and replacing the resin beads as needed. Shadrach Plumbing & Cooling can perform the necessary maintenance to ensure your water softener serves you well for years to come.
