Water Softener System

 

If there are stains or buildup on your sinks and bathtubs…if you have to use large amounts of soap to clean dishes or wash your hair…or if your water tastes or smells odd, you probably have hard water and need to use water softeners.

If left untreated, the minerals in hard water will cause yellow stains on plumbing fixtures and be deposited as scale, eventually clogging plumbing and shortening the life of appliances like washing machines, water heaters and dishwashers. Scale deposits not only cut down on the efficiency of these appliances, they cost you money, increasing both energy and maintenance bills.

West Coast Plumbing & Water Treatment Products – Professional Series Water Softeners eliminate the effects of hard water by removing the calcium and magnesium found there. Water is treated at the point-of-entry to the home, extending the useful life of water heaters, coffeemakers, humidifiers and household plumbing by as much as 30%.

How the ENVY™ Water Softener Softens Water

Hard Water passes through the media tank that contains resin beads coated with sodium ions. The calcium and magnesium ions are exchanged for sodium (or potassium) ions, thus softening the water. When the beads have trapped the hardness and need to be regenerated, the ENVY™ Water Softener Series control valve charges them with the brine from the brine tank.

As regeneration occurs, calcium and magnesium (hardness) ions are freed from the beads, replaced with sodium or potassium ions; and the system is ready to soften water again.

Capacity is one of the first things you should look for in a water softener. The average family uses 80-100 gallons of water per person per day. That means a household of five requires 400 gallons of softened water daily. If your water had a hardness rating of 30 grains per gallon (grp), for example, you would need to remove 12,000 grains per day (400 gallons x 30 grains). With a water softener regenerating every 3 days, your minimum softener capacity would be 36,000 grains (12,000 per day).

Scale Buildup

If there are stains or buildup on your sinks and bathtubs…if you have to use large amounts of soap to clean dishes or wash your hair…or if your water tastes or smells odd, you probably have hard water. If left untreated, the minerals in hard water will cause yellow stains on plumbing fixtures and be deposited as scale, eventually clogging plumbing and shortening the life of appliances like washing machines, water heaters and dishwashers. Scale deposits not only cut down on the efficiency of these appliances, they cost you money, increasing both energy and maintenance bills.

Soap and shampoo will lather better. Hair and skin will feel noticeably cleaner, softer and not as dry. No soap scum or mineral deposits to clean off sinks, showers, tubs or toilets.

Clothes will be softer, cleaner, whiter and brighter. Plus they will last longer. Using soft water increases the life of clothing, towels and linens up to 33%. Without hard water service issues, washing machines last longer, too.

Dishes will clean more easily, and be spot free, without the film glasses get when etched by mineral-laden water.
