Your faucets and shower screens are scaly or have white marks, your dishes are dull and the linen is rough, you notice that your skin is often dry or your hair breaks easily. There is no doubt, the water that comes out of your faucets, is a hard water, too charged in magnesium and calcaiore. Indeed, some departments, particularly in Phoenix, have particularly hard water.
The solution to remedy this problem is the installation by a professional of a water softener.
This device reduces the hardness of water (water with a high content of limestone and magnesium) to obtain softened water and non-calcareous water.
Setting up a softener
Before installing your water softener, it is important to prepare your environment. If you connect it indoors, the room where it is located must be dry and ventilated, and have a stable temperature. Outdoors, it should be placed so that it is not exposed to direct sunlight. Other devices may be necessary for the proper functioning of your softener, such as a pressure reducer: indeed, the softener requires between 1.5 and 4.5 bar, depending on the model, to work properly. Similarly, to avoid the risk of overpressure, you can install a non-return valve and an expansion tank. Once all these parameters have been checked, install a siphon evacuation if you do not already have one. Then connect the tank hose to the control valve. Finally, install the softener and plug it in. You can of course contact Culligan to have your water softener installed by a professional.
