Discover the Best Water Softeners in Peterborough & Surrounding Areas
When researching water softener options, it’s important to note that not all softeners are the same. They come with different size inlets and outlets that can impact your water pressure, different capacities for softener media, which impacts how well your water is softened and how much salt you’ll use, and different electronics and heads.
However, most softeners work in the same way. They use a process called ion exchange to remove hardness minerals from your water and replace them with sodium chloride.
Hardness minerals build up on your water heating elements in your water-using appliances like water heaters, boilers, washing machines, dish washers, humidifiers, and coffee pots. It also can leave residue on your skin and hair, causing your skin to be dry and hair to look lackluster. You may also notice your towels don’t stay fluffy, your white clothes start to turn grey, and your bright clothes start to lose their boldness.
Sodium chloride, however, does not build up or leave a residue which then protects your plumbing, appliances, skin, hair, and clothing.
So, when you’re exploring what the best water softener is for your home and comparing water softeners. it’s important to understand that the boost important part of your decision will be making sure:
- The product is sized perfectly for your home’s plumbing, water quality, and your family’s water usage needs
- The product will be installed and programmed by a professional who understands water chemistry and plumbing and can ensure the proper settings for maximum effectiveness and efficiency
