Purchase Water Softeners in San Antonio
Hard water contains impurities such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and other minerals dissolved as the water passes through limestone. It leaves mineral deposits on plumbing, appliances, and the inside of water pipes and the minerals in hard water react with soap to form soap scum in your shower and a dull film on your dishes. The same reaction causes clothes to wear out faster when you wash them. Ace Technical analyzes your water for hardness and impurities, and recommends the best system and water softeners for your house in San Antonio, Texas.
How a Water Softener Works
Water softeners replace the ions of magnesium and calcium in the water with another type of ion, such as sodium. A water softening system consist of two tanks, one filled with resin beads and the other with salt water (brine). As water flows into your home through the resin beads, magnesium and calcium ions attach themselves to the beads and are replaced in the water by sodium ions.
When the sodium ions on the beads have been depleted, the tank goes through a regeneration cycle. First, the beads are flushed to remove dirt and other impurities. Then salt water from the brine tank washes around the beads and replaces the calcium and magnesium with new sodium ions. Finally, clean water flushes the brine out of the beads.
Types of Water Softeners
Three types of regulators are available for water softening systems:
- Timer – The regeneration cycle takes place at regular scheduled intervals.
- Computer – The system regenerates based on the amount of water usage.
- Mechanical – A water meter triggers regeneration when a certain amount of water has passed through the system.
Don’t worry, the quantity of sodium in the treated water is very low.
