A softener’s efficiency is always directly related to the water it is treating. However, upgrades and innovations in water conditioning technology have increased efficiency in recent years.
An average 3-person home would use about 300 gallons of water per day. If this would be on public water supplies with a supposed water hardness of 10 grains of hardness, a new high-efficiency water softener would use approximately 21 pounds of salt per month. In a year, this would be about 250 pounds or five 50-lb. bags.
Well water tends to have higher hardness levels which translates into higher salt usage. With well water that is 30 grains of hardness, the same amount of water used would bring monthly salt usage to about 60 pounds of salt per month.
Keep in mind, that when removing iron from water with a softener, higher salt dosages are required. This means a sacrifice from salt usage efficiency.
Remember that not all softeners are created equal. There are varying degrees of efficiency in water and salt usage among softeners available on today’s market. If you have any questions, or would like your water tested, contact Aquanology, LLC today.
At Aquanology we offer a “free, initial on-site water test” which includes; Total Iron, Total Hardness, Nitrates, Sulfur, Chlorine, Total dissolved solids (TDS), Ph, Total Alkalinity, temperature, and other factors like pressure and flow volume. This “free on-site test” is not certified by NYS Department of Health. When a certified sample is needed, we can provide the needed service through a third-party certified laboratory. Contact us, and we’ll be happy to furnish you with more details on your water testing project.
While salt-free scale inhibitors might be what you want in your home, there are a few points that need to be made clear. First, a water softener and a scale inhibitor function entirely differently. A true water softener removes the hard ions so that the water feels soft, reduces soap requirements, reduces scale, and reduces fiber-fray in clothing washed in soft water. A scale inhibitor only changes the hard ions and leaves them in the water. The biggest benefit from a scale inhibitor is that it reduces scale build up on your faucets and appliances.
The only true system that softens water without salt is a Reverse Osmosis system. These systems can reduce your hardness by 99% without giving the water a slippery feel. Call us and ask about a reverse osmosis (RO) for your home to soften the water.
