What Are The Key Steps To Maintain Water Softeners?

Hard Water consists of an excessive amount of calcium and magnesium dissolved in it. Water softening plants in Kolkata design softeners in a specific manner to treat hard water.  These appliances consist of a mineral tank and a tank of brine solution. The water that is to be treated is connected to the mineral tank which consists of negatively charged ions. The surface of the resins is coated with the metal ions when attracted by the anions from the mineral tanks. 

The solution then passes through the tank containing brine solution where stronger Sodium ions flush out the weaker Magnesium and Calcium ions from the resin. The final step involves the proper draining of hard metal ions.

Mineral Water Plant: The processing of mineral water is relatively simple. At first, the raw mineral water passes through sand and activated carbon. This is the filtration process. After the filtration is over and the purified water goes through the second level. The second level involves the passing of filtered water through microfilters. Further UV radiation helps in killing the bacteria in the water. Finally, the water is ready to be packed in clean bottles. Proper designing of softeners by water plant manufacturers in Kolkata ensures that the water suits various applications.

Effective Tips To Maintain Water Softeners

  1. Keep an eye on the salt levels. When there is a decline in salt levels, what you get in return is hard water.  You should therefore check the salt level after every 3-4 weeks. Sometimes the frequency of altering or changing depends on the quality of the product you have.

  2. Cleaning the brine tank is another important step in this process. In most cases, if you have a modern and latest water softener appliance, you can skip cleaning for the time being. But for safety, if you clean it once every 6 to 12 months, you can live worry-free. Also do check the procedure of cleaning in the product manual so that you follow the steps accordingly.

  3. When in use, the resin bed is regularly charged with salt ions. Therefore you should flush the resin bed occasionally with the help of a water softener cleaner. The accumulation of ions constantly reduces the efficiency of the appliance, hence cleaning it is necessary.
