Say ‘Goodbye’ to Hard Water in Tampa, FL, With a Timer-Operated or Demand-Initiated Regeneration Water Softener
There are many benefits to having a water softener installed in your home in Tampa, Florida. Soaps and shampoos will lather better. Dishes will come out of the dishwasher sparkling. Clothes will feel softer and look more colorful. And, there will be a significant reduction in the amount of limescale deposits that form on bathroom surfaces and inside of pipes and appliances. Through a process called ion exchange, your water softener will remove the minerals (calcium and magnesium) that are primarily responsible for making water “hard.”
Ideally, the ion exchange water softening system that you buy for your home in Tampa, FL, should come from a reputable manufacturer and reliably provide an abundant supply of soft water for your family. Today’s water softeners generally fall into one of the following two categories:
- Timer-operated – Also called automatic softeners, timer-operated systems come equipped with programmable timers that can initiate regeneration cycles at predetermined times. Regeneration for a timer-operated water softener typically occurs during periods of low water usage.
- Demand-initiated regeneration (DIR) – DIR water softeners initiate the regeneration cycle in response to actual water demand. By triggering regeneration only when it’s absolutely necessary, a DIR water softener helps to minimize salt and water usage. The need for regeneration typically is determined by the system’s ability to measure the amount of water being used in the home or changes in the resin’s electrical conductivity.
