Water softeners condition your water and remove unwanted and unnecessary minerals. Water is considered "hard" if it contains a lot of calcium, magnesium or other minerals. Groundwater acquires these minerals by dissolving them from surrounding soil and rock.
Hard water is softened by using sodium to remove the calcium and magnesium it contains. When hard water passes through the softening system, the calcium and magnesium ions are removed through an ion exchange process, so only softened water passes through to your home. A water softener protects your appliances, plumbing, and fixtures from hard water mineral build up and damage.
Showering in soft water makes your skin and hair feel softer and smoother. Water softeners reduce etching and spotting on glasses and dishes and helps minimize soap scum.
