Water Softeners

Fort Wayne Water Softeners by Rolf Griffin Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning

Water can be hard. Of course, we’re actually referring to calcium, magnesium, and other tiny pieces of matter like sand, pesticides, microorganisms, minerals and even metals in the water. Groundwater easily dissolves these particles from surrounding soil and rock. These small materials are what make certain kinds of tap water “hard,” so hard in fact that the water needs to be softened.

Water hardness is calculated in terms of grains per gallon (GPG) or milligrams per liter (mg/L). If your water tests at less than 1 GPG, your water is soft. If it tests between 1 GPG and 3.5 GPG, it’s a wash (get it, “wash”?). If your water tests above 3.5 GPG, your water is hard or very hard, depending on the GPG level.

Hard water can cause some problems. For example, the calcium and magnesium can scale out of the water, sticking to and building up on pipes and water heaters, and after a while clogging pipes. Hard water also can react with soap to produce a sticky scum rather than letting it lather and wash away. As you probably know, sticky scum is not a good thing for pipes.

No matter where you’re located, Fort Wayne or anywhere else, water softeners help decrease the calcium and magnesium ion concentrations. The resulting “soft water” lowers the amount of leftover scum, buildup and dirt, giving you a cleaner and more comfortable home.
