The Benefits of Using Soft Water at Your Home in Tampa, FL
Soft water has many benefits. Which is why you should consider having a water softening system installed in your home in Tampa, Florida. A water softener is an appliance containing thousands of tiny spheres called resin beads. These beads, which can range from 0.3mm to 1.2mm in size, feature a crosslink structure that attracts and holds positively charged ions. When hard water is put into contact with the beads, the positively charged minerals in the water cling to beads and what effectively remains is soft water. At this stage, the softened water is sent to a holding tank from which it can be summoned for use at anytime. A brine (salt and water) is then used to “recharge” the resin beads with sodium so they can continue to soften the hard water that enters the unit.
