At Burner Well Drilling in Rockingham County, VA, we supply all of your well drilling needs including water softeners. What exactly is water softener? We have compiled a list of what you need to know about water softeners:
- Hard water is water with a higher than normal amounts of minerals present, such as calcium and magnesium. When you have hard water, buildup occurs on your dishes, showers, pipes, etc. Over time, this buildup can even corrode your plumbing.
- When you use water softeners, it removes these unwanted chemicals, making it easier to keep your house clean, as well as lengthening the shelf life of your appliances that use water.
- When you soften your water, it removes the ions from the chemicals that make your water hard and trades them for something else, usually sodium. This is a process called ion exchange, and it takes place through an appliance built in your water supply system. The positive effects of water softeners can last for years.
