Hard water is defined by the amount of dissolved mineral content in your water. The average hardness of the water in your area is frequently reported in your local annual water quality report. If you do not know the hardness in your area, your service provider will be happy to conduct a simple test for you.
If you determine you have hard water, you should consider a water softener or descaler. Spots on your dishes and limescale build up on fixtures are more than an annoyance. Scale can cause water-using appliances to work harder, which requires more energy and shortens the life expectancy of those appliances. You may have also noticed that it takes more soap to lather up and more detergent to get your laundry clean.
A properly selected and sized system can ultimately save you money through reduced soap and detergent usage, energy efficiency, longer life for clothing and linens, and long productive life for your water-using appliances.
You should expect a minimum of three years and likely longer, before the resin media needs to be replaced. Salt or potassium will need to be added periodically as prescribed by your service professional. The variance in longevity is based on water consumption levels and the levels of impurities in your water supply.
We recommend having your service provider check your system annually to ensure it is working properly.
