Eliminate Hard Water with a Water Softener System

If large quantities of minerals contact your potable water supply, it can lead to the formation of hard water. Hard water can cause dry skin and damage the hair. The minerals in hard water can also collect in the pipes, which can eventually lead to problems. Thankfully, a water softener system can be the right tool to help. With water softener installation, you can enjoy clean and healthy water that won’t damage your skin and hair while also minimizing the impact on plumbing fixtures.

We’re happy to help you find the best available model to satisfy your water treatment needs and provide a hassle-free installation process. We’ll also continue to support it through repair and maintenance services. Between improving water quality and protecting the plumbing, water softener service from Moon Valley Plumbing can help.

Selecting the Right Water Softener System

Salt-Based (Ion Exchange) Water Softeners: The sodium ion exchange is by far the most prevalent type of water softener process. Like we said before, salt-based water softeners take advantage of positively charged sodium ions to attract negatively-charged hard water minerals. Though they’re a highly effective piece of equipment, water softeners still do best with some upkeep. Maintenance is usually in the form of replenishing the system’s supply of salt.

There are several salt-based systems that use a dual-tank design. Dual-tank water softeners could be right for you if you have concerns about the tank failing, as the second tank serves as the backup.

Salt-Free Water Softeners

A few water softener systems use a potassium-chloride substitute rather than the ion exchange process to resolve hard water. Salt-free systems may require more up-front installation costs, but maintenance needs also tend to be lower. Before deciding, learn what you can about a few different water softeners so you know what design or features are best for you. Feel free to contact our plumbers so you can discuss options with an experienced professional.

Different types of equipment may be labeled water softener systems despite differences in design and filtration method.

Magnetic water softener: Newer designs reduce mineral buildup with a magnetic field wrapped around the plumbing. Unable to bond together, the minerals simply break down in the water.

What Is a Water Softener System?

A water softener removes minerals from potable water. This could be minerals such as calcium and magnesium, the most common sources of scale buildup and other issues in your plumbing. The process of water softening involves a chemical reaction known as ion exchange. Here’s how it works:

  1. Hard water reaches your softener systems’ tank, coming into contact with resin beads coated with sodium ions.
  2. These beads of resin attract the calcium and magnesium ions in the water, before swapping places with the sodium ions.
  3. Once the minerals are gone, the now-softened water is pumped from the tank to be deposited back in your plumbing system.

How Do They 'Soften' Water?

When installed correctly, a water softener can help keep these minerals out of your potable water supply. Now that hard water is out of the picture, you can make the most of the benefits, like:


Cleaner dishes and clothes

Softened water is more conducive to soap and detergent, helping fully clean any dishes and laundry.


Enhanced hair and skin

Water softeners can improve hair and skin by reducing the harshness of minerals, resulting in smoother, softer, and more manageable hair and skin.


Resilient plumbing and appliances

Softened water helps reduce scale and other mineral deposits, helping to extend the longevity of your plumbing and appliances.

Overall, a water softener is a great investment when homeowners want to improve water quality and protect their home’s plumbing and appliances.
