Benefits

  • Softer Skin and Cleaner Hair – The mineral ions in hard water prevent it from being completely soluble with soaps, forming a precipitate in the form of soap scum. The minerals in hard water remove the skin’s natural oils, which can dry out your skin and, for some, result in itchy, irritated skin. Soft water can help balance your hair’s pH level, while hard water can cause your hair to feel dry, brittle, and frizzy. It can also dull your hair color.
  • Brighter and Softer Clothes – If your home has hard water, you’re washing clothes in minerals that leave deposits. Over time, the minerals will cause the colors to fade. Some minerals can even cause stains or dingy whites. Soft water dissolves into clothes easier, cleaning the clothes more effectively. With hard water, your clothes are being washed in minerals that leave deposits in the fabric.
  • Longer Life. Less Repairs for your Appliances – Using a water softener can prevent the adverse effect of hard water on your dishwasher and laundry machines. Not only does scale buildup lower the quality and efficiency due to hard water composition, but scale inside the appliance results in a shorter lifespan for your coffee machines, ice makers, and even water heaters.
  • Less Time Cleaning – If you live in a home with hard water, you know how time-consuming cleaning can be. You are constantly re-washing dishes and laundry. You may spend hours a week scrubbing chalky lime and soap scum off the walls of your showers, sinks, and faucets. Using a water softener not only prevent the negative effects of hard water, but soft water fully dissolves and penetrates soap.
  • Reduce Pipe and Faucet Damage – Water softeners can eliminate mineral buildup in pipes and faucets, reducing scales on sinks and bathtubs, so you do not have to clean up so often and your pipes will not be damaged.
  • Decrease the Need for Soap and Shampoo – Many studies have been performed on the effects both hard water and soft water have on soap, and soft water has been much more productive in emphasizing the usefulness of soap. One such project placed hard water and soap in one bottle and soft water and soap in another. The one with hard water procured scum while the one with soft water produced bubbles and was cleaner. In another study, it was found that when using soft water to bathe, you use 75% less soap.
  • Reduce Monthly Energy Costs – When hard water produces buildup in your pipes and water appliances, your water heaters will be working more than it should to produce your desired effects in your home. This means that the amount that you will be spending on your water heater will increase. With a water softener, your utility bills will lower due the decreased amount of water that you will use.

What is Fine Mesh Iron Treating Resin?

Fine Mesh Resin, which is made up of smaller resin beads than the standard High Capacity Resin. The smaller bead size means that your water will have more surface area contact with the resin and therefore the resin will be able to better remove the added minerals that are present in unfiltered well water. This type of resin helps in removing Iron from your well as well, but if your Iron “ppm” is higher than 6, then you will need an Air Injection system before your water softener. If you do not know your iron content, KleerAqua recommends that you take a sample of your water to your local pool supply store to get it tested. This test is free.

Ideal Regenertation

Ideal regeneration frequency is 10 to 14 days at 75% of total capacity. Why 75% capacity? 25% reserve capacity is necessary in case of excessive water use from time to time. Example: 3 people (75 gallons per person per day) in a home avg. 225 gallons of water used per day with 15GPG will need a 32,000 grain system set up for 24,000 grain capacity.

Converting PPM to GPG

If you need to convert hardness from ppm to Grains per gallon (GPG) divide the total water hardness by 17.1. Example: 200ppm of total hardness / 17.1 = 11.69 GPG

Adjust for Iron

If iron is present in your water supply please add 5 grains of hardness for every 1 ppm of iron and determine your size water softener from there.
