Is a Salt-Free Water Softener a Good Idea for Your Home in San Antonio, TX?

Salt-Free Water Softener San Antonio TXIf you live in San Antonio, you probably know that few homes in this part of Texas escape the evils caused by hard water, including the scaly residue it deposits on dishes, sinks, and faucets, unless an effective water softener is installed. But many homeowners also understand that the best water softeners incorporate sodium as part of the conditioning process. Is there such a thing as a salt-free water softener that can successfully tackle hard water?

Yes, there is! And the experts at Sweetwater Home Services will be happy to outfit your home in the San Antonio area with a salt-free water softener that’s been tested and certified as effective by independent experts. However, before you decide whether this type of water softening system is the best solution for your home, you might wish to learn a little more about how a water softener works and why sodium is usually a part of the process.

How a Water Softener Works

The most effective water softening systems use a process known as ion exchange. Water is said to be “hard” when it contains high levels of dissolved minerals such as calcium and magnesium that were picked up underground when the water moved through limestone. Ion-exchange water softeners use a chemical process to substitute sodium ions for the problematic minerals, thus removing them from the water before it enters the home.

Although softened water contains only minuscule amounts of added sodium, some people worry about whether consuming additional salt in their drinking water is healthy. If this is a concern for you, Sweetwater Home Services can install a salt-free water softener that uses potassium ions instead of sodium. Both softening systems work the same way, but the potassium that’s needed to replenish the salt-free system is a bit pricier than sodium.

The experts at Sweetwater Home Services will be happy to tell you more about our salt-free water softeners. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation, which will include a complimentary water test, at your home in the San Antonio area.
