Hard Water Hazards
When you have a high concentration of minerals such as calcium and magnesium in your water, you get “hard water.” You usually can’t tell the level of water hardness just by looking at it; however, hard water leaves several signs. You may notice that it’s hard to lather soap on dishes or in the shower, and those pesky white spots on your dishes are mineral deposits left behind. There’s generally no hazard to your health when it comes to hard water, but it can cause severe plumbing problems and expensive repairs, as well as dry skin, prematurely fading clothes, and deposits on your faucets and fixtures.
How Does A Water Softener Work?
Most types of home water softeners use salt to remove calcium and other minerals from your water supply. The water softener tank contains plastic beads charged with sodium ions. When water passes through the tank, the sodium ions switch places with the magnesium and calcium ions, delivering softer, better water to your faucets.
After enough water flows through your softener, the beads soak in a high concentration of sodium chloride (salt water) to recharge. While recharging, softened water will be unavailable unless you have a two-tank system. In this case, one tank recharges while the other softens your water. Many single tank systems recharge at night when you use less water, but this can be adjusted if needed.
