Water Softener System Install & Repair in Berkeley
If you have hard water, installing a water softener can enhance the efficiency of the water-dependent appliances in your home and the impact of hard water on you and your family. In simple terms, hard water refers to water that contains more minerals than ordinary or necessary. In more scientific terms, hard water refers as metal buildup, such as magnesium and calcium, in tap water.
Hard water can lead to several negative impacts on you and your home. The most notable impact of hard water is a chalky, unattractive film that builds up and eventually corrodes sink faucets and fixtures. Hard water can also reduce the life span of water-dependent appliances in your home, such as the refrigerator.
Hard water can also negatively impact your hair and skin. When people bathe or shower in hard water, the excess metals and minerals found in the water are deposited on the skin and hair. Traces of these metals and minerals can lead to dry, damaged hair and dehydrated, itchy skin. Individuals with skin conditions such as eczema or rosacea who also have hard water may notice that their skin condition fails to improve or even worsens.
Installing a water softener can solve all of these hard water results. Water softening systems use sodium and potassium salt reservoirs to filter hardness minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, from hard water. Installing a water softener will not only soften your water, but it can reduce your overall home maintenance expenses. With softer water, you can extend the life of your appliances and other household components, such as your plumbing system, air conditioning unit and solar heating system.
It is best to hire a professional for your soft water installation. Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating will determine the hardness of your water and your daily water usage to figure out how soft your water needs to be. Failure to determine these things prior to installing a water softener could affect the system's configuration and efficiency. Additionally, if you suffer from certain conditions, such as hypertension, it may be necessary to customize your soft water installation to bypass your drinking water, so as not to add sodium to your drinking water.
