What else will a Water Softener Remove?
Water softeners will remove nearly all the calcium and magnesium from the raw water during the softening process. Softeners will also remove up to 10 ppm of iron and manganese. Water supplies with high levels of iron and manganese (greater than 10 ppm) may need pre-treatment to prolong the lifespan of a Water Softener.
How long will water softeners last?
A quality Water Softener, such as the softeners available from Industrial Water Equipment LTD can last for tens of years.
However, it is usual to replace the ion exchange resins within the Water Softener once they have been exhausted. This is usually between 4 and 7 years, depending on the incoming water hardness and other variable factors.
