Adding a Water Softener to your home will improve your life

Kinetico’s water softeners work hard to protect your home and your family from hard water. Hard water contains hardness minerals like calcium and magnesium. Even if your water is slightly hard it can damage water-using appliances. It can cause hard water stains on sinks, showers and tableware. Hard water can also cause hair and skin to dry out.

If you notice any of these water problems, you should install a water softener in your home. Your water-using appliances like dishwashers, washing machines, water heaters and more will work better and last longer when used with soft water. Your skin and hair will also stay soft and shiny with conditioned, soft water. Your soaps, body washes and shampoos will lather better and last longer in soft water. Using less soap, body wash and shampoo means you will save money.

How a Water Softener Works

Hard water is softened by removing the hardness minerals in the water through a process called ion exchange. When hard water enters the water softening system's resin bed ion exchange occurs. The hardness ions, calcium and magnesium, are exchanged for sodium ions, making the water soft. Now, soft water is available for use throughout your home.

Once the resin bed is filled with hardness ions, regeneration or cleaning must occur. Salt is typically used in the regeneration process to clean the resin beads. After the cleaning takes place, the water softening process can continue.
