Over the recent years we have received an increase in requests for information about water softeners from homeowners concerened about hard water & the damage it may be doing to their home’s plumbing system. “Hard” water is a term used to describe water that is heavy in calcium, magnesium, limestone, or chalk. In and of itself it is not dangerous for human consumption, on the contrary it can actually be quite good for you. However, hard water can be very damaging to your home’s plumbing system & appliances. The minerals present in hard water fall into the category of ‘bicarbonate ions’ and tend to accumulate as solids in pipes, water heater tanks, faucets, shower heads, dishwashers, and refrigerator water dispensers. Water softeners work through a process called ion exhange and although the process is quite complicated the result is simple, softer, safer water flowing through the taps of your home!
