Repairing & Replacing Water Softeners in La Verne

Does your soap sud the way it should? Do you still feel unclean after a shower? Hard water may be the culprit. Alpine Plumbing & Rooter can help you choose the right water softener system for your home.

What Is A Water Softener?

Water softeners are helpful cleansing units that utilize resin beads to filter out minerals like calcium and manganese. This process is highly effective for eliminating your home’s hard water. During the softening process, sodium is added to the water in the form of salt pellets. These pellets must be added to the softener once every month or so (depending on use) to ensure the highest-quality of softened water.

Water Softener Repair & Replacement

All water softeners – regardless of the style or model – function in the same way. Cold water flows into a tank. The tank is equipped with resin beads that the hard minerals stick to as the water passes through, allowing for only clean, softened water to exit the system into your water lines.

Over time, the resin beads become incapable of retaining more minerals and a thorough cleaning is required.

A system recharge is another important part of the water softening process which occurs on a preset schedule. During this process, the unit will halt the flow of incoming freshwater while saltwater from the brine tank cleans the resin beads.

Once your softener reaches the age of 10 to 15 years old or more, you’ll find it difficult to repair. Some parts will be hard to find, and many older units were not designed to allow for easy access to troublesome areas that can fail.

That’s when you need help from the certified plumbers at Alpine Plumbing & Rooter. We’ll come out, diagnose the problem for you, and provide a free estimate with a reasonable price for repair or replacement.

If your water softener is acting up or if you think you’re noticing hard water, give us a call at (626) 349-6631 and we’ll send a professional plumber to take a look at your unit right away.

Signs Your House Needs A Water Softener

Water Hardness

The best way to determine if you need a water softener is to have your water tested to find out the hardness of the water.

Hard Water Stains

Hard water contains dissolved minerals and metals that can create stubborn stains on your sinks, toilets, and bathtubs. These stains are white and scaly. You’ll also begin to notice water spots on your dishes, even when using the dishwasher. These are all tell-tale signs of a faulty water softening unit.

Scale Build-up

Mineral deposits can build up on your pots, teakettles, dinnerware, and cutlery. When this happens, you are left with a hard, chalky film that is difficult to remove. Scale can also build up on inside appliances that use water, like dishwashers and washing machines. It can have the same effect on other parts of your plumbing system including your pipes, faucets, and fixtures which could lead to expensive repairs if left unaddressed.

How Do You Know If Your System Is Failing?

There are various ways in which your water softener can fail. Most of the time, it simply stops softening your water. You may notice that your dishes become water-stained or that it’s taking a lot more soap to create suds and get things clean. If you’re not needing to put salt in the brine tank as often as you used to, that’s another sign that your water softener system is failing.

How Long Do Water Softeners Last?

Just like other major appliances, a water softener will only last for so long before they eventually break. While they can last much longer when properly cared for and maintained, they’ll typically have a lifespan of between ten and fifteen years.
