Is your Water Softener working as it should?

Are your towels not as soft as they used to be? Does the water feel 'squeaky' when you are washing?

If you have had your water softener for more than about 10 years then it could be starting to lose its efficiency.

Basically the resin, which is the stuff that your water passes through and that absorbs the hardness minerals, has a life of around 15 years after which time it starts to lose its ability to operate at full capacity. Often customers with older Softeners will first notice a problem when they say that the water is not as soft as it once was but the unit is still using salt at the same rate as before.

The other benefit is that modern Softeners are more efficient on salt and water than older units, usually offering around a 30% saving.

If you are not sure how well your unit is working then purchase one of our water test kits to find out for sure and then call us and we can advise how best to proceed once you know.
