Water hardness is unlikely to be hazardous to a person’s health, but there are other undesirable results associated with water hardness that make it beneficial for property owners to soften and condition the water. Thankfully, water conditioning systems are available to help.
If left unchecked, water hardness could result in limescale buildup inside plumbing fixtures and appliances, cause poor performance of soaps and detergents and result in spotting on dishes and other items being washed.
If you’re looking to gift yourself a water softener this holiday season, we’ve got a list of several of the best water softeners you’ll find on the market—especially if you’re dealing with elevated iron content in your water.
Take a look at these options, and let us know if you have any questions about their ability to help you meet your goals for your home water supply:
- SpringWell SS: This system comes in three sizes to offer different flow rates for different sizes of homes. It eliminates hard water by removing calcium, magnesium and other minerals via ion exchange and is considered one of the best systems for iron removal. The Vortech resin tank helps the system achieve outstanding salt and water efficiency while regenerating, and the controls are compatible with Bluetooth to allow easy programming and monitoring.
- SpringWell WSSS Filter-Softener Combo: This may be the best solution on the market for particularly high iron content. You can combine the SpringWell WSSS Filter with the SpringWell SS water softener. Using this setup, you can remove iron up to 10 ppm (parts per million) without issue.
- SpringWell FutureSoft: If you want to avoid a system that relies on salt for dealing with water hardness, you can use the FutureSoft from Springwell to get a salt-free softener. It uses template-assisted crystallization (TAC) to crystallize minerals that cause hard water to keep them suspended in the water rather than adhering to surfaces. The water will contain the same amount of minerals, but it will dramatically reduce scaling and other issues caused by hard water.
- Tier1 Softeners: Tier1 systems provide a nice, low-budget entry point for people looking to tackle issues with hard water. There are multiple options provided by Tier1. For example, the Essential Water Softener is for households of three to four people, features a 32,000-grain water softener (10 GPM (gallons per minute) and comes at a highly-affordable price point for most people.
- Eddy Electronic: The Eddy Electronic water descaler ranks well among water descalers for city and well water. It uses electromagnetic waves to reduce scaling caused by hard water. It may not be as effective as other options mentioned on this list, but it does have a smaller price point and provides enough benefit to users that it is worth investigating as an option for your water hardness issues.
These are just a few of the many available water conditioning systems on the market that you can investigate when dealing with scaling and other issues caused by water hardness. Contact us at Action Electric Motor & Pump Repair for more tips.
