Hard water contains dissolved minerals—like calcium,
magnesium and limestone that produce stains and a scale that clogs fixtures and
shortens the life of appliances. Our water softeners can absorb minerals for
cleaner, more skin-friendly water that extends the life of washing machines,
dishwashers, and water heaters and leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. We sell and install softener systems that filter,
soften, and clarify your water. Our
water softeners are engineered for years of dependable operation. We perform
both new installations and repairs on existing equipment.

How does a water softener work?
softeners reduce the “hardness” of the water, which can have several benefits
for consumers: smaller amounts of soap and detergents (non-synthetic) are
necessary for cleaning processes; reduced staining, spotting, scaling; and
energy saving in water heating due to less scaling.
A typical water
softener softens water by ion exchange, which involves the exchange of the
hardness minerals (chiefly calcium and magnesium) for sodium or potassium
minerals. The exchange takes place by passing water containing hardness
minerals over ion exchange resins in a tank.
the calcium and magnesium contact the resin in their travel through the tank,
they displace sodium or potassium ions. The displaced sodium or potassium ions
pass downward through the resin “bed” and out the softener drain; thus, the
softener delivers “soft” water.
Hard water causes two problems:
- Dissolved calcium and
magnesium precipitate out of hard water as scale, which builds up on the
insides of pipes, water heaters, dishwashers, plumbing fixtures, tea kettles,
coffee makers and industrial machinery. Scale reduces flow through pipes
and is a poor conductor of heat. Eventually, pipes can become completely
- Hard water reduces soap's
ability to lather, whether in the shower, sink, dishwasher or washing
machine, and reacts with soap to form a sticky scum.
