Water softener systems work magic at your home or business, especially with the challenges posed by northern Utah’s notoriously hard water.
When something goes wrong with a softening or filtration system, however, it can be difficult to determine what the problem is. In fact, you may not even know you have a problem until you begin to notice unpleasant changes in your water supply.
To determine whether you need water softener repair, consider these key factors.
The Age of Your Water Softening System
Some systems last longer than others and, inevitably, all systems will eventually wear out or break down. The challenge is knowing how long your particular system is designed to last. Traditional, single-tank systems typically last about 10 years or so.
Other systems, such as those installed by Kinetico, can easily last twice that long, thanks to its innovative design.
If you have a traditional system that is more than five years old, it’s probably wise to have it checked out by a water softener repair specialist.
The Way Your Water Softener Has Been Maintained
The type and frequency of maintenance your water softener requires is, again, dependent on the make and model of the system. Traditional systems require more frequent maintenance to remain reliable.
If you purchased a home that already had a system in place, it may be difficult to determine how well the softener was maintained by the previous owner. A repair expert can inspect and evaluate the system and make recommendations accordingly.
The Quality of Your Water
One of the biggest indicators of a problem is the sudden appearance of scale buildup as well as a less-than-clean feeling on your skin and hair after a shower. Your laundry may become dingy or your glassware may develop water spotting.
Sometimes these changes are gradual but, in the case of a major issue with your system, they can also develop more quickly.
