Choose the right way for your water softener installation

Basically, there are two ways to go:

DIY installation. Installing a water softener yourself can save you money. However, it requires certain plumbing skills, knowledge and experience. You will need to choose the right place to install the system and assemble the softener properly. Besides, you will likely have to cut and join water pipes (usually made of copper, steel or plastic) to complete the project and install the water softener right. The plumbing connections in your home’s water supply and in the water softener system itself can be intricate, and even minor mistakes when cutting pipes can be costly and disruptive.

Professional installation. Having a professional contractor install a water softener for you is much easier and less stressful. Despite the labour costs, you’ll save yourself time and avoid future headaches. By having trained specialists do the work, you can rest easy, knowing that the project is done right, in accordance with safety regulations and standards. Professionals have not only specialized equipment but also experience installing a water softener and handling any unforeseen installation issues easily.

Remember that any mistakes made during installation can be costly down the road. Cutting the wrong pipe or installing inappropriate size valves will cause you hassle and unforeseen expenses. Besides, some manufacturers will void the warranty if the softener is not installed by a professional service company, so turning to experts is the best decision. We at Superior HVAC Service will expertly select a solution to meet the specific needs of your home. Industry training, enormous experience and numerous certifications keep our water softener installers at the cutting edge of the latest technologies to serve you in the best way possible!

Water softener types and their specs

Before installing a water softener, you need to understand how it works and its varieties. Let’s look at the main differences between each type to help you choose the right for your needs.

Salt-based water softeners. It is the most common type and comes in a variety of sizes. However, it should be noted that these systems have a few disadvantages – the addition of salt to the water and the need for regular recharging of the resin.

Salt-free water softeners. The name speaks for itself – salt-free water softeners do not use salt to remove hard water minerals but instead, use a template-assisted crystallization system and potassium chloride. They are fairly easy to maintain, but installing a salt-free water softener is not efficient for households with high water use.

Dual-tank water softeners. The main difference between a dual-tank water softener and a standard salt water softener is the presence of two tanks, which makes it easier for the unit to handle a large amount of heavy minerals and a large volume of water. While they are designed for households with high water consumption, they require a lot of space and are expensive to service.

Magnetic water softeners. Magnetic water softeners work more like water descalers. They only temporarily change the chemical composition of the water rather than removing minerals, so the water is only “softened” for a few days.

As you can see, each water softener type has its own pros and cons to consider before you pick one to install. Our specialists can help you find the best solution for your specific needs, so you can fully rely on their expertise!
