In simple terms, a standard water softener works by swapping out the hardness ions like calcium and magnesium for salt ions like sodium and potassium. Water in a softening tank contacts small resin beads covered with salt ions – as the hard water flows through these beads, the hard and soft ions simply change places, leaving clear water in your system and depositing those unneeded minerals into a wastewater drain. However, there are also salt-free systems that may provide significant benefits to some homeowners.
A water softener system is meant for your whole home, not just one or two specific fixtures. At All Hours Plumbing, we have decades of experience installing whole house water softening systems, and we also deal in non-traditional, non-salt water softeners for those who prefer their features.

What about those hard, rough stains that stick to your towels after just one or two times absorbing hard water? For all the water softener installation, repair and recalibration services you need, the pros at All Hours Plumbing are here to make it happen.
