Understanding Water Softeners: What Do They Do?

A water softener is an appliance that combats the effects of hard water in your home. But what exactly does a water softener do? Let's break it down in simple terms.

Hard water contains high levels of minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, which can cause a variety of issues in your household. From leaving unsightly spots on dishes to clogging pipes and reducing the lifespan of appliances, hard water is a nuisance. That's where a water softener comes in.

How a Water Softener Works

A water softener uses a process called "ion exchange" to remove these hard minerals from your water. As hard water passes through a tank filled with resin beads, the calcium and magnesium ions are replaced with sodium or potassium ions. This exchange softens the water, making it more compatible with soap and extending the lifespan of your plumbing and appliances.

Benefits of a Water Softener

Improved Water Quality: Say goodbye to mineral buildup that can harm your appliances and plumbing systems. Water softeners remove minerals like calcium and magnesium, which cause hard water.

Softer Skin and Hair: Hard water can leave your skin dry and your hair dull. A water softener helps you feel refreshed after each shower, providing you with softer skin and shinier hair.

Cleaner Dishes and Laundry: No more spots and streaks on your dishes! Softened water also means your clothes will come out of the wash feeling softer and looking brighter.

Extended Appliance Life: Appliances that use water, like your dishwasher, water heater, and washing machine, will last longer and run better when they're not fighting scale buildup from hard water.

Marlo Water Softeners

Lohmeyer sells and services Marlo Water Softeners

Why Marlo? The Marlo water softener has been extremely reliable and durable for us and our customers. We have not had any failure issues with this brand of water softener. They work right out of the box! We like this - and our customers like that. Other reasons we recommend and sell Marlo water softeners:

  • Programmable head, regenerates on demand. This means it regenerates on a use cycle, or when your use had depleted the "softened charge" of water which uses less salt than a pre-programmed number of days cycle.
  • Maintains its settings in case of a power outage.
  • Set up to soften based on the incoming water hardness - which is different for Columbus City Utilities, Eastern Bartholomew Water, Southwestern Bartholomew Water, or a private well.
