Water Softeners

Salt Lake City Water Softeners by Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning

Water can be hard. Of course, we’re truly referring to calcium, magnesium, and other miniscule pieces of matter like sand, pesticides, microorganisms, minerals and even metals in the water. Groundwater naturally dissolves these particles from surrounding soil and rock. These small materials are what make some types of tap water “hard,” so hard in fact that the water needs to be softened.

Water hardness is measured in terms of grains per gallon (GPG) or milligrams per liter (mg/L). If your water tests at less than 1 GPG, your water is soft. If it tests between 1 GPG and 3.5 GPG, it’s a wash (get it, “wash”?). If your water tests above 3.5 GPG, your water is hard or very hard, depending on the GPG level.

Hard water can cause some problems. For one thing, the calcium and magnesium can scale out of the water, building up on pipes and water heaters, and eventually clogging pipes. Hard water also can react with soap to produce a sticky scum rather than letting it lather and wash away. As you probably know, sticky scum is not a good thing for pipes.

No matter where you’re located, Salt Lake City or anywhere else, water softeners help cut back the calcium and magnesium ion concentrations. The resulting “soft water” reduces the amount of leftover scum, buildup and dirt, leaving you with a cleaner and more comfortable home.
