What Does a Water Softener Do?

A water softener helps reduce the hardness in water caused by minerals, leaving water feeling softer, gentler, and cleaner. These systems operate by removing ions such as calcium and magnesium, the culprits of hard water, and replacing them with sodium ions. This process is known as ion exchange and it happens within the water softening system which includes a control valve, a tank filled with small beads of resin and a brine tank containing salty water. 

These systems are beneficial as they reduce soap scum residue on dishes and clothing. They also prevent calcium buildup in water carrying pipes and appliances, lowering energy costs and increasing the lifespan of water-using systems which can be damaged over time by hard water build-up. 

What Are Common Problems With Water Softeners?

One common issue water softeners face are clogs caused by excess sediments and minerals collected in the water. High levels of salt can also affect water softeners, causing them to become ineffective over time. Furthermore, continuous usage can lead to water softener equipment becoming worn or even breaking down completely. While water softeners are a great way to increase water efficiency, it’s important for homeowners to keep on top of their maintenance so that the condition and quality of their water remain consistent.

Other Water Softener Problems:

  • The water softener is not regenerating
  • The motor of the system has broken down
  • The brine tank is too full
  • Your water is discolored 
  • The water softener is leaking
  • The system is not using the salt within the brine tank
  • The resin beads are no longer working properly 
  • Your water tastes or smells odd

Frequently Asked Questions
  • When Should I Search For A Plumber Near Me?

    John Stevenson Plumbing, Heating & Air recommends scheduling annual plumbing evaluations. Your home is an investment, and it is better to prevent problems before they occur. With an annual inspection, our team can perform an in depth evaluation of all visible plumbing systems to ensure they are in top working condition. However, if you are experiencing high water bills, dripping faucets, no hot water, or gas smells, it is time to call a professional plumber.

    Some Common Signs That You Need Plumbing Services

    Some residential plumbing issues are easy to spot: active water drips, foul odors, strange sounds from the pipes all indicate something is happening in the system. But, there are more subtle signs that something is going on that requires a specialist. A common plumbing repair in San Diego is slab leaks. Leaks that happen under the foundation of the home. Signs include high water bills, damp floors, warm spots, and sounds of water running when no services are in use.

    Common Plumbing Problems

    Plumbing can be much more complex than we think. As long as we get hot water from our taps, and everything is working fine, we often don’t think about our plumbing. But, there is a lot going on throughout the home, and it is all connected. Many times, a problem in the toilet is related to the water pressure coming into the home. Some of the most common issues are leaks. Leaks occur when the pipes are older, or plumbing seals are weakened from age and pressure.

    Loose faucets, older water heaters, and poorly maintained systems will also lead to problems. If left alone, all of these can lead to burst pipes and major floods in worst case scenarios.

  • What Are All Of The Components Of A Plumbing System?

    Plumbing is made up of a complex system connected throughout the home. Residential plumbing services rely on knowledge of uniform plumbing code, extensive math, and engineering. That’s why our team is dedicated to advanced training and education year round. Understanding how pipes are connected, how water and gas comes into the home, and how it is all interconnected is crucial to performing quality and long lasting solutions.

  • How To Detect A High Water Pressure Issue

    Excessive water pressure is one of the leading causes of leaks in the home, from minor drips to burst shut off valves. Detecting high water pressure can be done at the main water valve for the home, or at any tap with the proper tools. Our team evaluates water pressure on every service to ensure homeowners do not experience emergency plumbing problems. Often, a homeowner will discover water pressure problems only after a leak has occurred, which is why it is important to have regular plumbing evaluations.

  • What To Do When Pipes Start Making Weird Sounds

    Banging, knocking, and hissing pipes all have something to say. Often, it is an indicator of a leak happening somewhere in the system, and they can be linked to high water pressure. When strange sounds are coming from your system, call the experts at John Stevenson Plumbing, Heating & Air.

  • What are Plumbers and What Do They Do?

    Plumbers are professionally-trained, skilled people who repair, maintain, and install pipe systems. Water heaters, bathtubs, toilets, drains, showers, and faucets are just a few of the things that plumbers are trained to service. Our John Stevenson Plumbing, Heating & Air plumbers are high-quality, certified professionals who will come to your home to help you with any of your plumbing repair, maintenance, or installation needs.

  • How Long is a Water Heater Supposed to Last?

Our plumbers at John Stevenson Plumbing, Heating & Air are expertly-trained to diagnose the problem with your water heater and see if it is something that can be fixed, or if a replacement is needed.
