Hard water contains higher levels of dissolved calcium and magnesium. Consequently, it makes cleaning clothes more difficult, creates streaking on dinnerware, and makes cleaning your hair and skin well difficult. Furthermore, it can damage your home’s piping distribution system if not corrected.  There are high efficiency solutions that will remove these minerals through the proven ion exchange softening process.

High Efficiency Softener


water softener is a type of whole house filtration system designed for softening as well as removing dissolved iron and manganese.  Additionally, for high levels of iron or manganese, an “up-flow” softener is recommended to prevent mineral build-up in the bottom of the tank.  Moreover, high efficiency softeners that use less water and salt in the backwashing process are preferred.  For more, see the link at https://www.energy.gov/energysv-hard-water.
