FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

Water Softeners work on an ion exchange process where sodium ions that have accumulated on the media are exchanged for hardness ions from the hard water as it passes through the water softener.

Water is forced under pressure through a membrane or skin. While the low mineral content water is forced through the membrane the high mineral content water is being flushed to the drain.

A whole house water softener removes the impurities in your water so your skin is rinsed without hard water minerals left behind. There is no residue on your skin to trap traces of soap, dead skin cells and other particles. And no residue left behind that dries your skin. The slippery, softness you feel is exactly how clean skin is supposed to feel.

The same way that soft water eliminates water spots that dry onto your glassware and silverware, it allows your bath soaps to lather better and rinse off completely.  Soaps will lather better and you’ll be able to use half as much.

Your authorized Water Doctor can evaluate your water and recommend a water softener system or whole house filteration system customized to treat your home’s water. The benefits include:

  • Reduced scale build-up on pipes, faucets and water-using appliances, providing energy savings.
  • Reduced iron stains, tastes and odors.
  • Cleaner, brighter laundry.
  • Lower use of soaps and detergents, saving money.
  • Eliminated spots on glassware and silverware.
  • Softer skin and hair.
