Commercial water softener
Hard water is the enemy of commercial water systems, but it’s an enemy that is hard to detect until there is a major problem. Hard water erases years of functionality for a variety of appliances and machinery that uses water.
Commercial water treatment entails much more than how water tastes. Commercial hard water treatment focuses on protecting and extending the life of a business’ equipment, typically with the addition of a commercial water softener.
What is hard water?
The hardness of water is from the presence of soluble bicarbonates, chlorides and sulfates of calcium and magnesium. Those minerals accumulate on pipes, heating elements and internal surfaces of boilers. This buildup, called scaling, impairs the efficiency of the machines.
Scaling also affects water temperature and makes machines work harder. That bumps up utility fees and water usage fees and causes an average 11% increase in energy consumption, per the American Society of Plumbing Engineers.
