Haferman Water Conditioning proudly provides Minnetonka homeowners with Kinetico water softeners!
Hard water can be a nuisance. It leaves soap scum on shower doors and inside dishwashers, and prevents you from getting the same clean you once did in the shower. If hard water is becoming more of a problem for your Minnetonka home or business, then Haferman Water Conditioning can help by installing a Kinetico water softener.
How does a water softener work?
How can a water softener get rid of the hard water in your Minnetonka home? Hard water is produced as the result of groundwater receiving magnesium and calcium ions from deteriorating objects. Once this happens, these ions overtake the sodium ions found in soft water.
A water softener seeks to reverse this process and put back the sodium ions with polystyrene beads. The sodium used is minimal and below FDA standards!
The annoyance of hard water
Since dissolved calcium and scale are found in hard water, these minerals accumulate inside pipes, water heaters and other appliances and objects that use water. Scale reduces water flow and heat conduction and, in the worst cases, entirely clog pipes.
One of the most annoying effects of hard water is that it lessens soap’s ability to lather, therefore not getting you as clean as it used to be. Instead, it reacts with soap to form a scum-like substance on your skin.
