Water softener Frequently Asked Questions

What is a water softener?

Water that contains more minerals than typical water is referred to as “hard” water. That means it contains high amounts of calcium and magnesium, which can lead to pipe clogs and make it more difficult for soap or detergent to dissolve. Water softeners serve to “soften” water by removing the minerals and ions that make the water “hard.”

How does a water softener work?

Water softeners function by removing positively charged ions (calcium and magnesium) with the use of negatively charged polystyrene beads. The negatively charged beads in the heart of the water softener draw in the positively charged minerals, pulling them from the water as it passes through. The system uses sodium or potassium ions to regenerate the beads in between processing water.

What are the benefits of water softeners and soft water?

Soft water is much better for the plumbing and water-using systems in your house. Hard water may lead to limescale deposits in your pipes, dishwasher, water heater, and other plumbing systems. Limescale buildup can build up in pipes and reduce the efficiency of your plumbing systems. It can corrode faucets and showerheads, and cause soap scum on shower doors. It can also damage machines in your home that use water, such as dishwashers, laundry machines, even coffee pots.

Hard water is also less effective for washing dishes, clothes, or skin, because it resists the dissolution of soap. Soap and detergent dissolve more easily in soft water, helping it do its job in cleaning and leaving your skin, hair and laundry feeling softer and smoother.

What size water softener do I need?

Determining the appropriate size water softener for your home depends on several factors including water conditions (hardness, chlorine levels, TDS), size of home, number of stories, how many people live there. At Kinetico Quality Water, our experienced water consultants can do an on-site water analysis and plumbing audit, helping determine what size water softener you need.

What is the best water softener salt?

At Kinetico Quality Water, we carry both water softener systems that use salt and those that do not. If your system calls for salt, we have found Morton’s System Saver Pellets are an affordable and effective option.
