Hellenbrand Water Softeners

How a Water Softener Works


Right now Action Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning and Electric, Inc. is advertising a coupon for $50.00 off any water softener installation. The preferred brand carried by Action Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning and Electric, Inc. is the H-1 Series Style Hellenbrand Water Softeners. The performance of a water softener is dependent on two key components; a resin bed that cleans the water and precision equipment that cleans the resin. The two most significant elements that differentiate one softener from another is the volume of resin and the type of control valve.

The resin tank: contains media called resin. The resin attracts and collects minerals from hard water. Once the resin is saturated with hardness minerals it must be cleaned and regenerated. Once regenerated, the resin is ready to remove more minerals from the water.

The control valve: routes the water flow through the system and controls the operating cycle. Hard water passes through the resin bed to become soft. During regeneration, water flow is reversed to clean the resin bed. Brine is pulled in and then rinsed out to regenerate the resin, preparing it to soften more water. The brine tank is then refilled with fresh water for future cycles.

The brine tank: stores salt and water to make brine which is used for regenerating the resin. Resin can be regenerated with sodium from salt or potassium from potassium chloride.

There are many benefits to having this valuable addition in your home or business.

Benefits of Water Treatment Include:

  • See and Feel the Difference – Your hair and skin will feel cleaner, softer and not as dry.
  • Taste The Difference -Removes the unpleasant taste and odors that may occupy your everyday tap water. Enjoy the great taste of natural water. You’ll find food and beverages taste better and look better when prepared with natural water.
  • Cleaner Brighter Laundry – Soft water allows detergents to rinse completely. Fabrics are softer without hard water minerals trapped in them. Fabrics last longer and whites stay white without the dingy gray caused by hard water. Soft water allows you to save up to 75% on soap products simply by allowing soap to do its job. The result, clothes last up to 33% longer.
  • Cleaner Bathrooms – Less Labor With soft water, you eliminate the need to scrub soap scum. Think of all the things you could be doing in place of cleaning these hard water problems!
  • Save Up To 30% On Water Using Appliances -Hard water minerals build up a layer of scale in your water using appliances requiring more energy for them to operate; as little as 1/8″ of scale could increase your water heating costs 30%. It pays to use soft water!
