Why Is Water Softener Maintenance Necessary?
A water softener gives you access to clearer, “softer” water by removing unwanted compounds from your supply. But a sudden shift back to hard hydration can be a shock to the system. Once clean tubs and sinks are now lined with soap scum, and every glass of H2O is swirling with sediment. The problem: your filtration system needs urgent maintenance.
While water softeners are relatively simple to maintain, it’s easy to forget about important maintenance tasks. Often, the first sign that your system needs a bit of TLC is a mouthful of hard water. However, with help from a water softener expert, you can ensure system is always operating efficiently.
At Tri-County Water Services, we specialize in maintaining a range of water softeners and filtration systems. Our team will conduct the following maintenance as part of our comprehensive maintenance service:
- Replenish salt levels. Resin beads in your water softener draw unwanted ions, such as magnesium and calcium, from your water by tapping into a steady supply of salt in the attached brine tank. When salt levels drop too low, the beads won’t regenerate as quickly and you will notice a dip in performance. Our pros will check your brine tank and add more salt when necessary.
- Eliminate blockages. In some cases, the salt in the brine tank can form a crust that prevents the resin beads from accessing these vital sodium ions. The result, your beads cannot regenerate and your system won’t be able to “soften” the water. We will remove these blockages and test that the system is running smoothly.
- Identify the right salt for your system. While some equipment uses granular salt, many modern solutions require salt tablets. At Tri-County, we will advise you on the best type of salt for your water softener and help you acquire the best refills for your system.
