Water Softeners in Charlotte, NC
Enjoy Better Water; Call Parks Heating & Cooling Today
Hard water is a common condition where the water that is supplied to your home contains elevated levels of minerals like calcium, magnesium, and more. Inherently, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In fact, the calcium in water has been cited as an important part of our diet, particularly for those who are calcium-deficient or need a stable supply of it for their own health. However, all of this extra mineral content can cause some serious problems. Extra minerals can wear out your plumbing, create ugly limescale on your faucets and fixtures, leave your dishes looking dingy and spotty, make your food taste weird, and even make your skin and hair feel dry, brittle, and vulnerable.

How Water Softeners Work
The easiest way to explain how a water softener works is to think of a magnet. Magnets have a positively charged end and a negatively charged end. The positively charged end attracts negatively-charged substances, and vice versa. This same principle is what allows water softeners to work. When water flows into a water softener, the positively-charged calcium and magnesium particles are naturally drawn to the negatively-charged filtration media. This causes the filtration media to release sodium that replaces these minerals in the water, promoting softer water with better taste. Left behind is a supply of hard water materials that can then be periodically flushed out.
A water softener can provide you with all of the following benefits:
- Better-tasting food
- Softer laundry
- Healthier skin and hair
- Cleaner faucets & fixtures
- Reduced limescale spots on dishes & glass around your home
Water softeners are a great addition to virtually any home because they require little to no additional energy to operate, very little maintenance, and provide an abundance of clean water when and where you need it. Installation is generally simple, particularly if you have an exposed main water line, and these systems will last for many years before needing replacement. In fact, these systems rarely (if ever) need any type of repair as well.
The one downside to these systems is that they are not water filtration or purifiers. If you’re hoping for water that’s truly clean, natural, and free from any additional inclusions, a water softener won’t provide you with that. These systems do add sodium ions to water that enters your home, and while that likely won’t change how you perceive your water’s taste, feel, or function (aside from the benefits to your health and day to day life), these systems do not provide the purification that many people are hoping for from something like a whole-home water filtration system.
