Our whole-house bacteriostatic water softener systems incorporate SilverShield® protection, adapted from NASA’s silver ion technology, to inhibit bacteria growth within the media bed. These systems also utilize iGen® technology, the only smart-valvue on the market, that does the thinking for you to monitor your water to optimize water quality and operating efficiency.
Water softening, also known as water conditioning, is a technique that removes the ions that cause the water to be hard, in most cases calcium and magnesium ions. Iron ions may also be removed during softening process. The best way to soften water is to use a water softener unit that connects directly to the main water supply of the house.
Why Use a Water Softener?
Hard water occurs when there is a significant amount of calcium and magnesium, which is highly prevalent throughout Texas. Hard water will eventually clog pipes and hot water tanks, and complicates soap and detergent dissolving in water A 2009 study found that some water heaters using hard water, failed after 1.6 years.
How Do Water Softeners Work?
Water softeners collect hard minerals within its conditioning tank, and from time to time, flushes them away to drain. Ion exchangers are often used for water softening, replacing the calcium and magnesium ions in the water with other ions, such as sodium or potassium.
