Water Softeners

Softening of water is commonly used for a number of reasons; to keep systems clean and free of scale on heat exchange surfaces, to ensure good water circulation throughout all parts of the system, and to enable evaporative systems to be run in the most efficient manner. Good water quality is important to the operation of many different types of process, and ensures that a minimum of system maintenance is required to keep the water system operating to its full potential.

The softening process is the removal of calcium and magnesium salts from the water. Lime scale is made up of these salts, which are relatively insoluble and are commonly found in mains and borehole water supplied throughout the country.

The continued efficient performance of your water softener is vital – to give peace of mind and performance data relating to your water softener, Safe Aqua offer three water softener maintenance services. Major service, Minor service and a resin assessment.

A Major Service includes:

  • Replace specified wear and tear parts in the water softener control valve
  • Functionally test the regeneration cycle and assess that all the water softener’ valves and controls operate as they should
  • Identify and compensate for changes in the raw water character and establish the quality of treated water
  • Check the unit’ electrical safety
  • Carry out a fault finding review, resolving any easily rectifiable faults during the service and reporting others requiring further action.

A Minor Service includes:

  • Ensure the regeneration cycle is correct and that all the water softener’ valves and controls operate as they should
  • Establish the quality of treated water and ensure there is no brine carry over at the end of the regeneration cycle
  • Check the unit’ electrical safety
  • Carry out a fault finding review, resolving any easily rectifiable faults during the service and reporting others requiring further action
  • Identify and compensate for changes in the raw water character

Resin Assessment

The resin bed is at the heart of water softener and with time it is prone to fouling and breakdown which can result in loss of softening capacity either as a result of reduced exchange performance or physical loss of resin.

This degradation process is gradual and because of the difficulty and cost of accessing the resin bed we have not included a resin condition assessment as part of our standard service options. We would, however, recommend that the resin condition is assessed every few years and we therefore offer it as an additional chargeable upgrade option to our Major Service.
