For water softener system installations in the Cleveland area you will be glad you found the experts at VIP Plumbing.
Hard water contains more minerals than soft water, specifically calcium and magnesium, and can cause many problems for your home plumbing, ranging from clogged pipes to the prevention of soap and detergent from dissolving in the water.
Our team can install a water softening system in your home in Cleveland, which will remove the minerals that cause hard water and prevent the associated negative consequences.
A water softener is packed with resin beads. Hard water with calcium and magnesium flows through this resin and, in a process called ion exchange, the hardness ions in the water trade places with soft ions on the resin beads. The result is soft water.
Over time, the resin beads in the water softener will become covered with calcium and magnesium ions, diminishing their capacity to soften hard water. Through a process called regeneration, water is automatically flushed through the water softener with a concentrated amount of regenerant. Now the resin beads pick up the soft ions from the regenerant in exchange for the hardness on the beads. With the resin beads “recharged,” the water softener goes back to service, providing the whole house with clean, soft water.
