22 Feb Installing a Water Conditioning Unit in your Rupert, Idaho Home
Pump Service Inc. can provide your home with an efficient Water Conditioning Unit
As a homeowner with a well, you may have heard about hard water, but you aren’t too sure what it is or how to address it. By learning the basics about hard water, you will be better prepared to properly treat your water and enjoy the best water possible in your Rupert, Idaho home.
How Can Water be “Hard”?
The hardness of water is determined by how much calcium and magnesium it has. The more your water has these minerals, the “harder” it becomes. To soften the water, a water softener is needed to counteract the hard water by taking these minerals out.
What are the Side Effects of Hard Water?
Over time, hard water will create a build up on your faucets and other water fixtures. Not only is this unattractive, but it reduces the efficiency of your overall water system and can create long-term damage. You may also begin to notice soap deposits on your dishes, on your laundry and in your sink and bathtub as a result of these excessive minerals in your water. This is because the minerals prevent the soap from dissolving all of the way. When a Water Conditioning Unit is installed, the soap will dissolve fully, creating the slippery and ultra smooth feel as intended.
How Can I Remove the Minerals from My Water?
You can remove these minerals from your water with the help of a water softening system, which involves using salt to counteract the minerals. While any form of salt will work, solar or block salts provide the best results. To determine the salt that is best for your particular system, it is a good idea to consult with the manufacturer or with a water softener specialist.
