Some issues created by hard water include:
- Reduced water flow in faucets, shower, and tub.
- Mineral buildup in your plumbing system, your appliances, and water heater.
- Reddish discoloration in your toilets.
- Stiff clothing and towels after doing your laundry.
- Dry, itchy skin and dull-looking hair.
If you’re dealing with any of these issues, or some combination of them, fortunately all is not lost by any means. If you’re thinking about the installation of a water softening system, or your existing system needs repair, Wilbur’s is ready to help you.
Brief Explanation of a Water Softener System
We never want to bore you with too much detail, but basically a water softening system is made up of three main components. These are the mineral tank, the control valve, and the brine tank.
- Mineral tank – This is where the water softening process occurs. Your water line feeds hard water into the tank where this water seeps through negative-charged resin beads. The beads remove the water-hardening calcium and magnesium ions. Soft water then leaves the tank, flowing into your home’s plumbing system.
- Control valve – This device measures the amount of water flowing through the mineral tank and into your house. It also measures the gradual depletion of the resin beads and automatically initiates a regeneration process enabling the beads to continue removing mineral deposits from the water.
- Brine tank – This is a small tank that sits next to the mineral tank, containing a salt water solution used to regenerate the resin beads in the minter tank.
