Water Softener Repair, Maintenance & Installation Experts in Greater Columbus, OH

Water softeners are great for plumbing equipment and plumbing-related appliances that have water running through them, including dishwashers, washing machines and water heaters. Water softeners get rid of unwanted hard water minerals (such as calcium, magnesium, and iron) from the water supply. Water softeners also prevent ugly rust stains, nasty calcium deposits, hard tasting water and other mineral issues that damage plumbing, pipes and appliances over time. This makes cleaning easier and more manageable while also improving the taste of your water. Water softeners can remove sulfur, which doesn’t cause hard water but is still an unwanted mineral in the water our systems can remove. Water treatment system installations by Bexley Plumbing & Drain help equipment last 20 years long or even longer as long as you remember to keep updating your water filters regularly.

How Does A Water Softener Work?

Water softeners are water treatment products used to soften water to remove unwanted minerals known to make water “hard.” Water softeners use filtration to remove minerals like calcium and magnesium. These are what make water hard. Hard water can have a unique odor that can be unpleasant. These minerals are removed when the water goes through the water softener. After going through the softening system, it’s better for skin and better for plumbing and home appliances.

If you’re looking for a “water softener expert near me” or a “water treatment specialist near me” for your home or business, you’re in the right place. Our professionals at Bexley Plumbing & Drain start the process by looking at the specific hardness of your water and figuring out which system is best for your home. Usually, grains per gallon is the standard unit of measurement when we do this. Brine tanks are used with water softening systems. Brine tanks hold the salt that gets used to soften the water. Water levels in your water softener should always be lower than the level of salt inside your tank. The water in your system has to come into contact with this salt to use it and achieve the optimal concentration of brine. As a result, the water softening system’s tank is filled with small beads known as resin beads. These beads bond to minerals when they come into contact with them. This removes minerals that need removed before the water comes out of the tank.

What is Reverse Osmosis?

Are you looking to improve your municipal tap water? We have something just for you! Reverse osmosis is a water purification process that removes and separates ions in addition to unwanted molecules and large particles from drinking water. RO is famous for making water better and healthier. Reverse osmosis also removes sediment and chlorine from the water supply. The whole process drives water through a semipermeable membrane to remove particles. Then, after this, the water that leaves the membrane also goes through a post-filter process. RO water has a lot less impurities and contaminants. It has lower levels of sodium. It doesn’t have any bacteria or parasites as well, which goes without saying. Overall, Reverse Osmosis has been shown to be better water for cancer patients and better for overall health.

Benefits of Water Softeners

Nearly 85% of homes and businesses in Ohio have hard water. If you live in Greater Columbus, Canal Winchester, Delaware, Dublin or surrounding areas and you want to enhance your water quality, you should call Bexley Plumbing & Drain right away. Check out our long list of benefits for setting up a new water softener or a new water filtration system: 

Saves Money

Saves You Money

This is a major benefit that belongs at the top of our list for a reason. Softened water doesn’t have the minerals and ions known to cause buildup in and around plumbing equipment, plumbing systems, pipes, fixtures and appliances. Because this plumbing equipment lasts longer, it saves you money from having to make expensive repairs. When minerals build up in pipes and drains, they narrow the water’s pathway. This results in pressure that can progressively get worse as more builds up over time.


Keeps Dishware Cleaner

Hard water minerals can cause spots on bathtubs, sinks, faucets, dishes, and everything else household water comes in contact with. These stains and other build up is kept at bay by eliminating these elements from the water supply. It’s not unusual to see a ring of dirt and grime around sinks and bathtubs because soap doesn’t rinse off well with hard water. This soap goes down the drain much easier if you use softened water.


Better Tasting Water

Although the need for water softeners and water purifiers are usually for much more than flavor, one of the common benefits we can’t overlook is the improvement to water’s taste. One of the reasons people have them installed is to improve the water’s overall taste for cooking and drinking. Better-tasting water is one of the main benefits of installing a water softener or water filtration system. RO water tastes better as well and it is better for your health. Food and beverages can taste better if the water is softened and purified.

Less Scum Build Up and Scale

Reducing calcium build-up and hard water scale deposits are among the biggest reasons a lot of people have a water softener installed. As a result of doing so, having a good water filtration system means homeowners won’t have to spend time cleaning and getting rid of scale buildup around showers, sinks, tubs, drains, and other surfaces. Furthermore, homes with softened water don’t need as much cleaning detergent or need as much soap for cleaning. Water softeners make it easier to clean, as we noted above.

What is hard water?

Hard water has an excess of unwanted minerals. The two main types of minerals found in hard water include calcium and magnesium. These minerals are the reason why soap won’t dissolve in hard water. Guidelines standards for water classification include Zero to 60 milligrams per liter as calcium carbonate, which is classified as soft. From there, 61 to 120 mg per liter is considered moderately hard. Additionally, 121 to 180 milligrams per liter is hard, and more than 180 per liter as very hard.

What is a water softener?

Water softeners remove calcium and magnesium from hard water and improve plumbing systems and how they function. Water softeners remove unwanted minerals that cause hard water, and softer water is better for pipes and plumbing-related appliances connected to it.

How often should salt be added to a water softener?

During water softener regeneration, salt is put inside the water tank’s reservoir. Water softeners are usually checked for salt levels about one time each month. To ensure adequate levels of water softening production, make sure your salt level is about halfway. Because newer models are more efficient with salt usage, experts suggest adding salt every six to eight weeks or so. Nevertheless, it’s always a good idea to check frequently to ensure everything is working the way you need it to.
