How do you properly utilize a Water Softener at your home?
Ensure that your water softener is installed and maintained according to the manufacturer's guidelines. If you are buying one from Netsol Water, we can provide you a proper guide.
Maintaining your softener will ensure that the quality of your water remains consistent. Corrosion problems will be avoided as a result of this. Furthermore,
1: If you acquire your water from a community water system, investigate if the water has already been softened. Utility-supplied soft water does not require extra softening and may cause corrosion issues in your home.
2: Check that your softener is set to the hardness of your water.If the hardness is set too high, the softener will waste water and cost you more money to operate.
3: If your home has new copper piping, turn off the water softener for at least the first few weeks that you use it. This will aid in the formation of a protective mineral layer in the plumbing, reducing the risk of copper poisoning. Find out more about Copper in Water.
4: Follow the manufacturer's guidelines for filling the softener with sodium or potassium chloride.
5: Only soften what you need. Showers, sinks, and laundry hookups are frequently softened. A softener is often not required for toilets, hose bibs, basement sinks, or other cold water taps.People frequently opt to soften only the hot water.
6: Some softeners, in addition to calcium and magnesium, may be able to remove copper, iron, manganese, and radium, depending on your water quality. Copper can re-enter the water after it goes through your home's pipes and plumbing after leaving the softener. These softeners may use specialized filter material and may be more expensive than standard softeners.
If you the situations below, you can also consult your Manufacturer’s instructions:
1: Clogging: If your water supply is hazy, muddy and clayey,it might clog the resin in your softener. This problem is usually solved by backwashing. A sediment filter placed before the softener may also be beneficial.
2: Fouling from iron or manganese: When iron or manganese is exposed to air or chlorine, it can clog the resin and prevent it from operating. To avoid fouling, it may be necessary to filter the water before it reaches your softener.
3: Germs and fungi: If your water isn't disinfected before softening, bacteria and fungi could form on the surface. Your softener's effectiveness may be impaired as a result of this.
A water softening system is a necessary household equipment in almost every part of the country. Water softeners can endure for years with little maintenance, but they can last longer if you check and clean them often.
