How Water Softeners Work
Water softeners are the #1 way to rectify hard water issues. Water softeners work by filtering out undesirable minerals that are present in your water supply. Through a procdess called “ion exchange” calcium and magnesium are pulled from the water. In technical terms, all of the water that flows into a home that is equipped with a water softener, is pulled into a mineral tank. The mineral tank is filled with resin beads which are typically made from polystyrene & charged with a sodium ion. Resin beads are special in that they are “anions”. This means that they cary a negative charge of minerals that is automatically attracted to the positive charge of the resin beads. In short as water passes through the tank a reaction between the positively charged resin & negatively charged anions works to grab ahold of undesirable minerals and remove them from the water before it leaves the tank and enters the taps, faucets, and applicances in your home.
This process does much to eliminate the “hardness” of your home’s water supply and the positive benefits are many! From softer skin & healthier hair to scale free pots and pans and silverware. Not to mention extended lifespan for all water-utilizing appliances.

Water Softener Repair
Most homeowners are able to remedy some of the more common water softener issues that may arise. Simple tasks such as resetting the time or tapping the tank to break down salt bridges that may have formed are straightforward enough for most. When the problem is outside the scope of typicaly DIY resolutions, we always recommend calling a professional plumber for assistance.
Below is a list of the most common water softener problems homeowners encounter:
- Failure to regenerate – typically as a result of power failure or a malfunctioning timer
- Hard water doesn’t go away – this one is harder to pinpoint as it can be caused by several different scenarios, including a bypass valve that is open, inadequate water or brine levels, or defective parts that need replacement
- Too much salt– this is either due to 1) water levels that are too low 2) salt levels are too high
- Decreased water pressure – this is almost always due to excessive build up of sediment or iron in the water softener. Sometimes this build up can also be present in piping. It is a good idea to double check resin levels when this occurs as well.

One of our older, widower deacons in my church had a sewer backup into his house and he called me to help him. Parobek worked with me over the phone, got there in just a couple of hours, and were very communicative - calling to let me know progress, what they found, and got my "ok" as to price before performing any of the work. Super helpful customer service at their office and the guys doing the work were friendly, explanatory and thorough.
These guys are the only plumbers I will use anymore. While they are a little bit more expensive than many, you get what you pay for! They are extremely professional and upfront about what the job will cost. They always show up on time and do a great job. I recommend them for all your plumbing needs.
Called to schedule an appointment due to the faucet was not working in my kitchen. They were out the next morning as promised. They charge a service fee of $45 to diagnose the problem, is waived if you pay them to resolve the issue. Jason was professional, courteous and was very upfront and thorough with my options. He was able to diagnose and resolve the issue within just a few minutes. He could have easily overcharged me or told me I needed to replace my faucet. I really appreciate his integrity and will definitely call them for any future concerns.
