ReactFast Plumbing offer Water Softeners and Water Softener fitting. The Water Softener Systems that we use are designed to be efficient and easy for you. They use less water and less salt than others on the market. They do not need maintenance or servicing. All they need is fresh salt every so often which we also supply.
The softener is small enough to fit under a kitchen sink but still able to cope with almost every household in the country. It will not only save you money, but also completely eliminate limescale and soap scum by giving you soft water to the whole of the house.
Basically, water softeners are made to remove calcium and magnesium (which causes limescale and scum) from your hard water. They can treat the whole house, so are installed onto the main water feed.
Water softening happens by a process called ion exchange, using an ion exchange resin. The resin is made up of polymeric beads which are formulated so that they can be charged with certain ions. Calcium and magnesium, the main cause of limescale and soap scum, are ions and as the water passes through the resin, the calcium and magnesium ions change places with the sodium ions in the resin. Sodium salts, unlike calcium & magnesium, are highly soluble in water so sodium does not cause limescale or soap scum. When all of the sodium ions have been exchanged for calcium or magnesium, the resin must be recharged with sodium ions. This is done by flushing the resin with salt solution (brine).
Each of our workers provide a comprehensive water softener installation service which conforms to WRAS guidelines with respect to the installing of water softeners.
The installing of a water softener isn’t complicated, but since it is plumbed into the mains drinking water there are numerous regulations that need to be considered.
For quite some time there seemed to be significant misunderstandings regarding the meaning of the regulations , in particular regarding the potability of soft water as well as the supply of separate drinking water faucets.
Each of our own certified plumbing engineers provide an entire installation service of our softeners based on these specifications. For more information, get in touch.
