Outer Banks Water Softener Installation - Platinum Plumbing
The water is classified as hard or soft, depending upon the number of minerals and their amount present in it. If the water contains ions of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, etc., then it is termed as hard water. The hard water can cause blockages of pipes, by depositing lime scales in them. The chemical properties of hard water prevents easy dissolution of soap and detergents, which leads to wastage of money. Water softening devices, also referred to as, ion exchangers soften the hard water by replacing the calcium and magnesium ions in it with sodium or potassium ions during water ionization. You may prefer to install an electromagnetic water softener.
Ask the Plumber, Plumber Basic
you begin, you need to identify where the main water pipe
enters you house, as this will dictate where you install
your softener in order to treat all the water that enters
your property. The installation position that you choose
needs to be near a waste pipe or drain as all the waste
materials which build up during the softening process
periodically need to be flushed out. You must also ensure
that this is near a power socket, as the softener needs a
power supply to work. Your water supply will be turned off
during the water softener installation, so be sure that you
know how to do this.
