As you well know, water is a basic necessity of life. But you may be wondering about the need for the conditioned water produced by RainSoft water softener systems. A basic understanding of the chemistry of hard water – and soap – may be useful in answering that question.
Hard water contains dissolved minerals, such as calcium and magnesium. Water softener systems work by exchanging these hardness ions for sodium or potassium ions. In so doing, water softener systems effectively address the following household problems:
- Mineral build-up – When hard water is heated, the minerals in it precipitate and form a scale that can build up inside pipes and the inner workings of water-using appliances. In addition to potentially producing clogs, these mineral deposits can prevent effective heat transfer, and thus require your appliances to use more energy to heat water. As a result, not only will your utility bills rise, but your appliances will also endure unnecessary wear and tear.
- Soap scum – The organic acids in soap react with the minerals in hard water to form insoluble calcium and magnesium salt, so instead of a rich, cleansing lather, they produce the telltale grayish soap scum you see left behind on your bathroom surfaces and dishes… and you!
- Damage to water-using appliances – Hard water minerals like lime and calcium can accumulate inside appliances, such as washing machines and dishwashers, causing them to operate less effectively over time. Water softener systems can eliminate these issues and keep your appliances running at peak efficiency.
When you consider all the problems that hard water can cause, it’s easy to see how one of RainSoft’s premium water softener systems can save you time, energy, and money.
