Water softeners treat hardness of water by removing calcium, magnesium, and sediment from the water. Water filtration systems work the same way with added benefits of also removing chlorine from the water supply.

The benefits of taking action to address hard water include:

ABC offers home water softeners and water filtration systems in a variety of sizes. How do you decide which system is right for your home? Our knowledgeable specialists will guide you by considering the incoming water quality, size of home and number of occupants–as well as the wants, needs and budget you have in mind. We want to bring the water quality up to your standards.

One of the biggest misconceptions about water softeners is that the salt is what softens your water. What actually softens the water are the thousands of resin beads inside your softener that filter out hard water minerals.
Water softeners use a negatively charged ion exchange resin to collect the impurities from your water. The resin becomes charged when it mixes with a sodium or potassium solution. The salt in the water softener isn’t what softens the water; it is what enables the resin to collect and remove the hardness from your water.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is hard water?

To understand soft water, we need to know what makes water hard. Hard water is water that has a high mineral content. It’s a natural result of minerals like calcium and magnesium accumulating during the water cycle, and it can happen with well water and even city water. The more calcium and magnesium dissolved in the water, the harder the water becomes. This is why certain cities and counties within the same state can have varying degrees of water hardness.

A water softener system treats your water at the point it enters the home. Having soft water means removing these hardness impurities before the water travels through your pipes and into your water-using appliances and before you draw water from the taps of your bathrooms and kitchen. Soft water is less than 1 gpg, whereas hard water is anything above 7gpg. Over 85% of households live in hard water areas.

ABC offers you a water softener system and reverse osmosis drinking water system, creating the healthiest water for all uses.
