Water Softeners

There is a solution to hard water. Soften it with a ProMate water softener system. Powerful electronics and programmable cycles with adjustable times remove dissolved minerals, leaving your water softer and cleaner. 

What is hard water and is hard water bad?
Water that is “hard” is high in dissolved minerals like calcium and magnesium. While hard water isn’t considered a health risk, it can leave a unsightly film and be bad for your skin, hair and appliances. Depending on how hard your water is, you might be able to instantly feel a film or residue on your skin after washing your hands or showering. The calcium in hard water reacts with soap to create “soap scum” or a cloudy film that can cause build up on dishes and in appliances.

When hard water is heated, solid deposits of calcium carbonate can form a “scale.” This scale can damage appliances and heating equipment, raise heating costs, lower the efficiency of electric water heaters, and clog pipes.

What are the benefits of softened water?
Studies show that over 89% of homes in the U.S. have hard water. Hard water causes unwanted build up on appliances, laundry and dishes. Water softeners remove excess calcium and magnesium from water that cause hard water. By softening your water, you’ll extend the life of your appliances, have stain-free fixtures, spot-free dishes and softer clothing.
How does a water softener work?
A water softener consists of two tanks; the first tank is the resin tank, which holds resin beads covered in sodium particles. A water softener works by moving hard water over the resin. The calcium and magnesium replace the sodium particles by clinging to the resin beads, so the leftover soft water is able to continue on to your home’s faucets and appliances.

The second tank is the brine tank. This is the tank to which you add salt. Eventually, the resin in the softener tank will collect so much calcium and magnesium that it is no longer able to soften water. The water softener will need to regenerate, meaning the resin will be rinsed with a salt solution from the brine tank. After this, your water softener will be ready to remove minerals from your hard water once again.

How do I know what kind of water softener I need?
The type of water you have, the number of people in your home, and the amount of water you use determines what type of water softener you need. Contact KH Water Specialists for a free water analysis and a free quote on a water softener or complete water treatment system.
Do you have a water softener rental program?
Yes! If you aren’t ready to buy a water softener yet, you can rent the system instead. Our rental program is available for all water treatment systems. It is setup with a 24 month interest free contract and the option to purchase after the first year. The first year’s rent is applied toward the original purchase price. If renting multiple water treatment items (water softener, iron curtain, reverse osmosis system), you can choose to buyout just one or all. Check out all water treatment rental details here.
