Water Softener

Water Softener Repair, Maintenance & Installation Experts in Upper Arlington, OH

Water softeners are beneficial for plumbing equipment and plumbing-related appliances connected to your water, including dishwashers, water heaters, washers and more. Water softeners remove hard minerals (like magnesium, calcium and iron) from the water supply. This helps you prevent rust stains in addition to calcium buildup. It helps treat hard tasting water and other minerals that damage pipes and home appliances. This makes cleaning more manageable and improves the taste of your water. It can also remove sulfur, which doesn’t necessarily cause hard water but is still an unwanted mineral. Water softener and water treatment system installations by Upper Arlington Plumbing & Drain should allow equipment to last 20 years or more provided you remember to update your water filters regularly and keep up on maintenance.

Water Softener

How Do Water Softeners Work? 

Water softeners are water treatment systems that soften your water to remove unwanted minerals. Water softeners are filtering devices that remove minerals like magnesium and calcium. These minerals generate hard water, which has an unpleasant odor that is often detectable inside the home or building. Hard water minerals are removed as the water passes through the water softener.  When the water passes through the softening system, it is much easier on the plumbing system as well as other home appliances. If you’re looking for the best water softener for your home or business, our specialists start by determining the hardness of your current water supply to determine what would be the best softener.  

Grains per gallon is the unit of measurement used. A brine tank is included in each water softening system. That brine tank holds all the salt. The water level in your water softener should always be a little less than the level of salt in the tank. The water comes into contact with the salt to consume it and achieve the ideal concentration of brine. 

What is Reverse Osmosis? 

Reverse osmosis is a water purification process that separates ions, unwanted molecules and larger particles from drinking water. This makes it healthier overall. Reverse osmosis eliminates chlorine and sediment from the water supply. This process drives water across a semipermeable membrane to remove unwanted particles. The water that leaves the RO membrane after treatment and goes through a post-filter process. RO water has far fewer contaminants, lower sodium, and no parasites or bacteria. RO water is safer for cancer patients and is better for health overall.

Benefits of Water Softeners? 

Did you know that almost 85% of homes have issues with hard water? If you live in the Upper Arlington, Ohio, area and want to enhance your water quality, you should call Upper Arlington Plumbing & Drain today. Check out our list of benefits of updating or setting up a new water softening system and filtration system:

Cleaner Dishes

Keeps Dishes Cleaner

Unwanted minerals in tap water can cause spots on the bathtubs, dishes, sinks, faucets, and everything else your water comes into contact with. These ugly stains are kept at bay by eliminating these elements from the water supply. It’s normal to observe a ring of dirt and grime encircling your sink and bathtubs because soap doesn’t always rinse as well with hard water. It will, however, go down the drain much easier if you use softened water.

Saves Money

Saves Money

Soft water doesn’t have the damaging mineral ions that cause buildup on plumbing equipment, pipes and home appliances. This saves you money in the long run from repair bills. Mineral buildup in a pipe or drain narrows the available pathway for water to move through. This build-up requires higher pump pressure and progressively gets worse. It can also increase the amount of energy necessary to keep water hot or cold. The buildup eventually wreaks havoc on your appliances, which means repair or replacement costs for dishwashers, laundry machines, water heaters, ice makers and more. 

Better Tasting Water

Better Tasting Water

Although the purpose of a water softener and water purifier is about much more than flavor, one of the most common reasons a lot of people install them is to improve the taste of their water for drinking and cooking. Better-tasting water from the tap is one of the main benefits of putting a water filtration system and/or water softener. Food and beverages taste better when water is softened and/or purified.


Softer Skin and Silkier Hair

Stronger hair and smoother skin are additional benefits of having a water softening system. This is because chlorine and hard minerals, which are found in most people’s water supply, are removed. Skin won’t be as dry, so you won’t need as much lotion after bathing. With hard water, soap creates a curd rather than a lather. However, soap lathers considerably better with softened water.

What is a water softener?

Water softeners are water filtration systems that work to eliminate calcium and magnesium from hard water and improve your plumbing’s function. Water softeners remove minerals that cause hard water, and softer water is better for pipes and plumbing appliances that use it. 


What is hard water?

Hard water contains more minerals than regular water. The two biggest culprits are calcium and magnesium. They are why soap doesn’t dissolve in hard water. Guidelines for water classification include: 0 to 60 milligrams per liter as calcium carbonate is classified as soft; 61 to 120 mg per liter is moderately hard; 121 to 180 milligrams per liter is hard, and more than 180 per liter as very hard.

How often should I add salt to my water softener?

During a softener’s regeneration, salt is frequently added to the tank’s reservoir. Water softeners usually get tested about once each month. To ensure adequate soft water production, keep the salt level to at least half-full. Because newer models are more efficient with salt use, experts recommend adding salt every 6 to 8 weeks. However, it’s always a good idea to check regularly to ensure everything is working the way you need it to.
