How Do Water Softeners Work?

What harm can Hard Water do?

When water is referred to as ‘hard’ this simply means, that it contains more dissolved minerals (calcium and magnesium) than pure water. The degree of hardness of the water increases, when more calcium and magnesium is present, which we know is high in the Hill Country area of Texas.  Any level over 3 gpg is considered hard, locally we range from 22-130 gpg (Extremely Hard)!

A water softener system is a whole-house filtration system that removes hardness-causing calcium and magnesium minerals from your water through a process called ion exchange. Hard water can wreak havoc on your home or business. Scale builds up in your pipes, clogging them and decreasing water pressure. Scale dramatically shortens the lifespan of appliances like dishwashers, coffee makers and ice machines.  Hard water can void the warranty on Tankless hot water heaters.

Hard water is the leading cause of household plumbing and water-using appliance failure.  Our water softeners have all the high efficiency features needed for softening the extreme hardness of Central Texas: Up Flow Regeneration, Precision Brining, Quick Soft Water Recharge, Automatic Backwash Override and Automatic System Refresh – Saves Water 64%, Saves Salt 75% and the longest industry warranty.

Save Your Dishes and Clothing

Other items a water softener can save

A water softener can save your appliances and pipes, but another major issue are the items that come into contact with your water through use of those appliances. Dish washers and washing machines can’t keep the hard water from ruining your dishes and clothing on their own. Over time without a water softener, hard water will cause buildup that can cause them harm.

Increase the life of everything your water comes into contact with by contacting Central Texas Water Softeners. We have all the expertise you need for your water softening needs.
