The most popular water softeners
Hard water is not good for our hair, skin and our body. That is why we have to install a water softener to solve this problem. The first thing you have to do is to measure the level of hardness in the water that you use to wash your clothes, dishes and yourself.
It is to be noticed that manufacturers produce three types of water softeners:
– one that presents a single tank;
– one that presents a twin tank;
– one that comes with a timer.
These water softeners come in manual regenerated and meter regenerated system. Another important element you should take into account is the installation of the water softener. This process requires some plumbing because of the in and out connection to the water pipe. When choosing a water softener, take into account the following elements:
– determining the hardness of the water;
– picking up the proper dimension of the water softener;
– the capacity of the water softener to convert hard water into soft water;
– the kind of softener you prefer.
