Frequently Asked Questions

No.  A properly functioning water softener will never make your water taste salty.  The small amount of sodium added to the water will never create a salty taste.

Hard water usually manifests itself in several ways.  It leaves white residue behind wherever water evaporates. When hardness reacts with soaps and detergents, it leaves a sticky soap scum behind, and in hot water heating systems it leaves behind a hard scale.

A water softener works through a process known as “ion exchange,” which means that as it removes calcium and magnesium (elements that make water “hard”), it replaces those ions on a one for one basis, usually with sodium.  This means that the amount of sodium added to the water is directly proportional to how hard your water is.  In most instances the amount being added is so small that it is not a significant contributor to the amount of sodium in your diet.

Yes, if your hard water has been building up scale in your appliances, once you install a softener it will begin to remove that built-up scale.  It will take a long time to remove it, but it will remove it.

Other than salt or potassium chloride, there are no other chemicals that a water softener uses.  On the contrary, using a water softener reduces the amount of cleaning supplies and detergents that you need to put down the drain trying to keep your home and family clean. Using a water softener is very environmentally friendly.

Once a softener is installed, it will begin to soften your water immediately, However, if you have a tank-type hot water heater, it may take a few days to use up that hard water, until you feel the full effects of soft water.

Most good softeners today, recharge based on how many gallons of water you use, and how hard your water is to start with.  However, most of our customers today are adding salt once or twice a year, on average.
