Our environment is currently suffering from heightened levels of sodium chloride and water softeners are a contributor to that problem. By selecting a softener that uses less water and salt, we can help to conserve and protect our precious water resources while lowering expenses at the same time.
Most water softeners on the market operate on an “ion exchange” system. Calcium and magnesium are exchanged for sodium (salt) or potassium (salt) ions. This takes place within the resin tank of the water softener. As the water flows through the resin beads, the calcium and magnesium ions trade places with the sodium ions. That is why softened water becomes higher in salt content. Over time the beads become exhausted and contain nothing but calcium and magnesium, thus requiring recharge. That is why you need to put bags of salt in the brine tank.
How expensive are water treatment systems?
A whole home water treatment system will pay for itself in many ways. Treated water helps your water heater run more efficiently, reducing energy bills.
Treated water is easier on your pipes, plumbing fixtures and your water-related appliances resulting in fewer repairs and related costs.
Additionally, treated water requires less detergent to wash clothes and dishes. It also saves on the amount of shampoo and conditioners you use.
Also, a drinking water system is much more economical than purchasing bottled water for your home.
