High Quality Water Softener Loop Installation
When we think of soft water the immediate thought is often, “oh yeah you mean water that won’t leave stains on windows!” and as true as this may be, it is not the stains on the windows that causes the desire for soft water it is that those stains are from chemicals left in the water that were put in the water to neutralize any harmful or dangerous pathogens that may have been present.
Turning water from “hard” to “soft” requires the use of a water softener system. The most effective way to soften the homes water is to have a whole house system installed where water is in a sense filtered before it is sent into the home.
To increase the effectiveness of whole home water softening, a system called water softening loop installation is used which requires intense skill and knowledge to do. Basically, softened water should not be used to water the grass, trees and plants and is not needed for other water units in the home. Here are some other reasons for installing a bypass loop:
- Having a loop installed greatly increases the life of the softener by decreasing the amount of water that it needs to soften.
- Having the filter last longer saves in both energy and cost
- Some activities, including cold water cloth washing perform well with the hard water.
As much as having a bypass loop installed for the water softener improves the overall efficiency of the whole house water softening process, it is not a job for the amateur or faint of heart. Precision work is needed and a sound understanding of the pipe system is a must. Hiring an honest company founded upon principles of integrity such as Davis Plumbing and Drain Service is a critical decision saving much energy, frustration, cost, and mistakes!
