Water Softener Installation in Norman, Moore, and OKC
If you are tired of dealing with hard water, it may be time to consider a water softener. The team at Legacy 4 Plumbing, Inc. can help you choose and install the right system for your home or business.
Hard water is not harmful to your health, but it can create inconveniences in your daily routine. Calcium and magnesium in your water supply contribute to these problems. Common issues caused by hard water include:
Not only is your daily routine affected, but your plumbing system will also face premature deterioration. The minerals in hard water can cause scaling in your water lines and water heater tank. Your kitchen appliances, such as coffee makers, will also need to be cleaned frequently due to scaling.
Our water treatment solutions can help you enjoy greater peace of mind and improvement in your water quality. We will make sure your new water softener is installed safely and accurately.
What to Consider Before Installing a Water Softener
Is your home or building pre-plumbed with a water softener loop? Newer constructions are likely designed to accommodate water softeners. This makes installation much more straightforward and helps save time. In general, water softener installations are completed within two hours.
If your property does not have an existing water softener loop in place, we will carry out the necessary updates so you can have your new unit installed. Our experts will add bypass valves to your water line and install additional pipes if necessary. You will have your new water softener up and running within the day.
Salt-Based vs. Salt-Free Systems
You may have heard about salt-based versus salt-free water softeners. Before selecting the right type for your property, it’s important to understand how each system works.
Salt-based systems are the “real” water softeners. They are proven to work effectively at trapping and removing calcium and magnesium from hard water. Two tanks are used, one to house the brine solution and another to carry the resin beads that are used to capture the abrasive minerals.
Traditional water softeners require regular maintenance (tank cleaning and refilling the brine solution), which make the salt-free alternative appealing to some customers. However, traditional water softeners remain the more popular choice in many homes and businesses.
Salt-free systems are not true water softeners. They are actually water conditioners. These systems don’t fully remove minerals from hard water; rather, they treat the water to decrease the abrasive effects. Water conditioners are much more compact and require less maintenance than water softeners, making the former an ideal choice for customers who prioritize convenience.
