Harry Caswell Plumbing, Mechanical and Utility Contractor are experienced in installing and repairing water
softeners systems in both residential and commercial buildings.

We can install a system that will be designed specifically for your needs.

Hard water is a buildup of minerals in the water supply.  

The buildup of minerals can plug up the pipes and wreak havoc on any water based appliances in the home,
such as washing machines, dishwashers, faucets and other fixtures.

The best way to remove hardness from the water is with a water softener.

Water softener systems are pressurized water conditioning devices in which hard water is passed through
a bed of cation exchange media for the purpose of exchanging the objectionable calcium and magnesium ions,
which makes up the total hardness in your water, for sodium or potassium ions.

This process results in softened water which is more desirable for home use.
                                                     How Home Water Softeners Work

  • The body of a water softener is a tank filled with resin beads that are covered with sodium ions
    As hard water passes through, the resin beads act like a magnet, attracting the calcium and
    magnesium ions, or hardness, in exchange for the sodium ions.

  • Eventually the resin beads become saturated with mineral ions and have to be "re-charged".
    This process is called regeneration, and is conducted by the control valve on the top of the tank.
    The control valve is the brains of the system.

  • During the regeneration process, a strong brine solution is flushed through the resin tank, bathing the resin
    beads in a stream of sodium ions which replace the accumulated calcium and magnesium ions.

  • Softened water is delivered through out your home.

  • The brine solution, carrying the displaced calcium and magnesium ions, is then flushed down
    the drain by fresh water. The regenerated resin beads can be used again and again.
Soft water extends appliance life and can reduce energy costs.
Hard water produces scale build-up in plumbing and appliances, which can force appliances to work
harder, consume more energy and ultimately lead to a shorter life span—costing you more money.

For example, water heaters last up to 50% longer and consume up to 29% less energy.

Benefits of having a water softener installed for treatment of your water:

  • Softer skin, hair, towels, clothes, and use less soap

  • Clean your house using less cleaners and detergents, which helps out the environment and saves you mone

  • More efficient and longer lasting appliances
