High-quality water softening systems, like those designed by Kinetico, require very little attention. Invest in one, and other than adding salt – which you’ll do far less often than with a traditional softener – you’ll only need to schedule regular service calls.
So, how often will that be necessary? Most softening system manufacturers recommend yearly servicing by a water treatment professional. Below, you’ll find four reasons why annual service calls are essential for a well-functioning water softener.
Cleaning & Sanitizing
During an annual service call, a treatment professional will thoroughly clean out the brine tank and sanitize your water softening system. These are tasks you could handle on your own, but neither is particularly easy – and if you’re like most homeowners, you’ll rest easier with an expert taking care of the cleaning and sanitization.
When you get your softening system professionally serviced, you can count on the settings being optimized to suit the needs of your family. You might be using more or less water than before, and an expert knows how to make sure that the equipment setup is right for your household.
High-quality water softening systems that don’t use electricity – like those we offer here at Kinetico Utah — don’t need repairs or replacement parts nearly as often as traditional models. That said, just like every other appliance, components can get worn over time. During a service call, a professional will inspect every part of your softener and, if necessary, complete any repair work. They’ll catch any problems early on, before they grow to cause more extensive issues.
Water Quality Testing
In addition to all of the above, treatment professionals also typically perform water quality testing as part of every annual service call. Based on the results, you’ll know if your household supply is safe or if it contains any biological, chemical or physical contaminants. And in the event the latter is true, an expert can recommend an effective filtration system, one that works with your softener.
Clearly, annual servicing by a water treatment professional is key to ensuring a water softener operates efficiently for as long as possible. If you’re ready to schedule a service call – or if you’re interested in installing a new softening system – reach out to Kinetico Utah.
