Water Softeners

We have installed and maintained numerous water softeners for a range of purposes and can help you decide on what suits your needs.

  • Single vessels, twin vessels
  • For home, for irrigation or for business
  • To soften, to help reduce iron

Water softening is chemical reaction and you want your system to be set up correctly.  You can get away with it not set up correctly but it will cost you.

About Water Softeners

Water softeners are typically used to reduce the hardness of water by removal of calcium and magnesium salts particularly carbonates and bicarbonates. Hard water is often associated with bore water and in some cases supplied water (Adelaide tap water is much harder than Melbourne tap water). Hard water can cause the build-up of scale on water heating elements, the blocking of pipes and can cause problems with detergents and soaps. Irrigation water that is high is hardness can lead to white stains on paths, buildings and other structures.

Water softeners use a resin to soften the water by exchanging calcium and magnesium with sodium. Simple and effective, water softeners can be used for;

  • Irrigation
  • Industry
  • Car washes
  • Domestic water
  • Iron removal

The units can be single or twin vessels, large or small, and are extremely effective. What you choose will depend upon on the volume of water you need, whether you store the softened water in a tank, or how often you need it.
