Water Softeners in Tri-Cities, Yakima & Surrounding Areas
Trusted Tri-Cities Water Softener Service Team
Like many places in the country, Yakima and the Tri-Cities have hard water — and you’ve probably seen its effects. Hard water leaves spots on glassware, damages your clothing, and makes your hair and skin look dull and lifeless. It can also wreak havoc on your plumbing system and deposit unsightly buildup on bathroom and kitchen fixtures.
You can spend hours cleaning hard water stains, but sooner or later, they come back and you need to start all over again. There is a solution that requires far less effort: water-softening equipment.

How a Water Softener Works
Water softeners are a type of water filtration system. As the water from your plumbing system passes through a resin “bed,” an ion exchange process removes hard water minerals such as calcium and magnesium. The “softened” water then continues to make its way through your plumbing system, free from harmful minerals. When the resin bed is full, it must be “regenerated,” or cleaned with a salt solution so the ion exchange process can begin again.
Whole-house water softeners come in a variety of sizes and styles to accommodate the size of your home and family. They’re typically installed in the garage, basement, or utility closet.

Why Install a Water Softener
Dry skin, water that tastes “off,” stains on your clothing, and difficulty lathering soap are all frustrating and annoying results of hard water. As inconvenient as they are, the most dangerous hard water issue is in your home’s plumbing system when scale, a crusty deposit, builds up on pipes, faucets and fixtures, and appliances. It eventually causes pipes and fixtures to corrode, and they need to be replaced much sooner than they would have if the water were treated.

Frequently Asked Questions About Water Softeners
Is it safe to drink water from a water softener?
In most cases, drinking softened water is absolutely safe. Unless you have extremely hard water to start, then softened water shouldn't exceed 220 parts per million of sodium.
How much sodium is in soft water?
Naturally soft water usually has between 10 to 50 ppm of sodium. That is equivalent to about 12 milligrams of sodium in every 8-ounce glass. Based on FDA standards, this is considered a very low level of sodium in the water.
How long do water softeners last?
With proper maintenance, your water softener can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years. This, of course, depends on the quality of the machine and strict adherence to maintenance schedules and repairs. In most cases, water softeners start to wear out around 12 years, at which point, they begin to lose efficiency and effectiveness.
How can I tell how hard my water is?
The fastest way is to contact your municipality if you are on city water. It will have this information readily available. If that's not an option and you're on a well, then you can purchase a home test kit. These can be bought online, from hardware stores, and some big-box stores.
What size water softener do I need?
This depends on the size of your home — not square footage, rather the number of people who live in the residence. To determine what size you need, multiply the number of people in your home by the estimated gallons each individual uses in a day. That's about 80 gallons per individual in most cases. Once you have this number, multiply that by the total grains of hardness within the water. This will tell you how many grains should be removed by the water softener each day. If you are like the typical four-person home in Yakima, then a standard 33,000-grain unit is most likely the best option.
Do water softeners harm septic systems?
Not at all. The water recharge will not negatively affect septic systems or drain field soil.
