Our innovative water softeners can make this dream a reality.

They use a scientifically proven ion exchange process to swap out hard minerals like calcium and magnesium with softer ones, transforming your hard water into soft water. The result? A dramatic reduction in limescale buildup, smoother skin and hair, and prolonged life of appliances. But that’s not all! A water softener system is better for cleaning tasks, too – you’ll find that your soaps and detergents lather better and go further, saving you money in the long run.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of water softeners?

Water softening systems offer several benefits, including:

  • Reducing mineral buildup in pipes & appliances
  • Extending pipes & appliances’ lifespan
  • Improving the effectiveness of soaps and detergents
  • Providing softer, smoother skin and hair after bathing

Additionally, softened water can lead to cost savings on energy and maintenance expenses.

How do water softeners work?

Water softening systems work by using a process called ion exchange to remove minerals like calcium and magnesium from the water. They contain resin beads that attract and remove these minerals, preventing them from causing scale buildup in pipes and appliances.

When the resin becomes saturated with minerals, the water softener goes through a regeneration cycle using salt to flush out the minerals and recharge the resin beads, allowing the softening process to continue.

What are the signs that indicate I need a water softener?

Signs that indicate you may need a water-softening system include dry or itchy skin, dull or limp hair, spots on dishes and glassware after washing, reduced lather and effectiveness of soaps and detergents, and mineral buildup in pipes and appliances.

If you notice these signs, it may be beneficial to consider installing a water-softening system to address hard water issues. Flotilla offers free water testing to determine the best system for your home.

Do I need a professional to install a water softener?

Installing a water softening system can be a complex task, so it’s generally recommended to have it done by a professional. Proper installation is crucial for the efficiency and effectiveness of the water-softening system.

Our team of experts can ensure that the softener is correctly integrated with your plumbing and that it operates as intended. Additionally, our professional team is qualified and trained to address any potential challenges or specific requirements related to your water supply and plumbing system.

How long does a water softener typically last?

A water-softening system can typically last around 10 to 15 years with proper maintenance and care. Over time, the resin beads in the softener may need replacement, but regular maintenance can help extend the lifespan of the system.

Are water softeners safe?

Yes, water-softening systems are generally safe when used as directed. The process of ion exchange used by water softeners does not introduce any harmful substances into the water.

However, it’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for maintaining and operating the water softener to ensure its safe and effective use. Regular maintenance and monitoring can help ensure the safety and proper functioning of the water-softening system.

What size water softener do I need for my home?

The size of the water softener you need for your home depends on factors such as the hardness of your water, your daily water usage, and the flow rate of your plumbing system.

It’s best to consult with a water treatment professional who can assess your specific needs and recommend the appropriate size of water softening system for your home.

At Flotilla we consider factors like the number of occupants in your household, water usage patterns, and the hardness level of your water to determine the right size for optimal performance.

Will a water softener increase water pressure in my home?

No, a water softener will not increase water pressure in your home. The primary function of a water softening system is to remove minerals that cause water hardness, but it does not have a direct impact on water pressure.

If you are experiencing low water pressure, it may be due to other factors such as pipe blockages, plumbing issues, or the overall water supply system in your area.

Are there any health concerns associated with using a water softener?

Using a water-softening system does not pose significant health concerns. However, it’s important to ensure that the softened water is safe for consumption.

Flotilla’s regular maintenance and monitoring can help ensure that your water remains safe for use. If you have specific health concerns or conditions, it’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized guidance.

How do I know if my water softener is functioning properly?

You can check if your water softening system is functioning properly by observing signs such as a decrease in the lathering of soaps and shampoos, the presence of scale buildup on faucets and surfaces, or a slimy feeling on the skin after washing.

Additionally, Flotilla technicians may periodically test the water hardness to ensure that the softener is effectively removing minerals. If you notice any significant changes in water quality or experience issues with the softener, it’s advisable to give us a call and we will inspect it for little or no charge. We recommend our regular maintenance and monitoring programs to help ensure optimal performance.

Can I use a water softener if I have a septic system?

Yes, you can use a water-softening system if you have a septic system. However, it’s important to use a high-efficiency water softener and to monitor the salt levels in your septic system.

Excessive salt from you water-softening system can impact the balance of the septic system, so it’s essential to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and consider a salt-reducing system if necessary.

Additionally, regular maintenance and monitoring of both the water softener and the septic system can help ensure compatibility and proper functionality.
