Water Softener FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I drink softened water?
    While drinking moderately softened water is generally safe for most individuals, those with specific health considerations or dietary restrictions may want to take additional precautions. If you have any concerns, it's advisable to consult with a water treatment professional or your healthcare provider.
  • What is hard water?
    Hard water is water that contains a high concentration of dissolved minerals, primarily calcium and magnesium ions. These minerals are typically present in the form of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) and magnesium carbonate (MgCO3), but other compounds like sulfates and bicarbonates may also contribute to hardness. The hardness of water is usually measured in terms of calcium carbonate equivalents (ppm CaCO3 or grains per gallon). Water is categorized as follows based on its hardness: Soft water: 0-60 ppm CaCO3 Moderately hard water: 61-120 ppm CaCO3 Hard water: 121-180 ppm CaCO3 Very hard water: More than 180 ppm CaCO3 Hard water can have several effects, including the formation of scale deposits in pipes and appliances, reduced lathering of soap and detergents, and potential interference with the performance of certain water-dependent equipment. Water softeners are commonly used to reduce hardness by replacing calcium and magnesium ions with sodium ions through a process called ion exchange.

  • How much does a water softener cost?
    The best way to communicate the cost of a water softener is to use an analogy. The analogy is, "How much does a car cost?" The answer would be, the cost depends on the make, model and any upgraded options you choose. Water softeners are much like cars; both cheap and expensive ones will get you from point A to point B. A good quality one will make the trip MANY more times without any breakdowns. A good quality water softener will also use much less salt than a cheap one and in many cases, up to 40% less salt. For these reasons, we do not sell cheap softeners nor do we sell ultra high end softeners because the cost to benefit ratio just isn't high enough. Using the car analogy again, we sell the Honda of water softeners. They are well-built quality machines designed to last and hold their value. Factors that determine price: How hard is the water at your home? How many people live in the home full time? Was the home pre-plumbed for a water softener? If not, your homes' unique layout is a factor. Do you have specific requirements for faucets or outside hoses that should or shouldn't be soft? Is your basement finished and do we have access to run new pipes if necessary? As you can see, A LOT goes into sizing and installing a water softener properly. The only way to accurately give you a real price is to visit with you and answer the questions above. Feel free to call or text us 801-559-7638 so we can get you an up front, no obligation quote that is specific to your needs and requirements.
