Water Softener Installation in Birmingham, AL

Contact Wilbur’s AC, Heating & Plumbing for Water Softener Installs in Birmingham

Slightly over 89% of American households use hard water on a daily basis. This is water containing substantial amounts of mineral deposits, especially calcium and magnesium. On the one hand, it’s alright to drink hard water, although it can affect your skin and hair. On the other hand, however, over time, hard water can create substantial problems in your Birmingham area home.

Some issues created by hard water include:

  • Reduced water flow in faucets, shower, and tub.
  • Mineral buildup in your plumbing system, your appliances, and water heater.
  • Reddish discoloration in your toilets.
  • Stiff clothing and towels after doing your laundry.
  • Dry, itchy skin and dull-looking hair.

If you’re dealing with any of these issues, or some combination of them, fortunately all is not lost by any means. If you’re thinking about the installation of a water softening system, or your existing system needs repair, Wilbur’s is ready to help you.

Brief Explanation of a Water Softener System

We never want to bore you with too much detail, but basically a water softening system is made up of three main components. These are the mineral tank, the control valve, and the brine tank.

  • Mineral tank – This is where the water softening process occurs. Your water line feeds hard water into the tank where this water seeps through negative-charged resin beads. The beads remove the water-hardening calcium and magnesium ions. Soft water then leaves the tank, flowing into your home’s plumbing system.
  • Control valve – This device measures the amount of water flowing through the mineral tank and into your house. It also measures the gradual depletion of the resin beads and automatically initiates a regeneration process enabling the beads to continue removing mineral deposits from the water.
  • Brine tank – This is a small tank that sits next to the mineral tank, containing a salt water solution used to regenerate the resin beads in the minter tank.
