Signs You Need Water Filter or Softener Replacement

Water filters are simple systems that improve water quality by removing contaminants. They are easy to replace at the end of their lifespan and typically do not require repair, providing continuous clean water with minimal maintenance.

Water softeners, on the other hand, address hard water issues by removing minerals like calcium and magnesium. Unlike filters, water softeners have more complex components and specific replacement requirements.

Here are some signs indicating it might be time to replace your water softener:

  • Decreased Water Softening Efficiency: If your soap isn't lathering well, your laundry isn’t coming out clean, or you notice mineral spots on dishes and fixtures, your water softener may be losing efficiency. This usually means the resin bed is worn out and might need replacement.
  • Salt Bridges in the Brine Tank: Salt bridges form when a hard crust develops above the water in the brine tank, preventing salt from dissolving properly. If you're constantly dealing with salt bridges, it might be time to consider a replacement.
  • Resin Beads Fouling: Over time, resin beads can become contaminated, causing cloudy water, increased hardness, or decreased water flow. When resin beads can no longer effectively soften water, it is time for a replacement.
  • Constant Need for Maintenance or Repairs: Frequent repairs and maintenance indicate your water softener is reaching the end of its lifespan. Investing in a new system might be more cost-effective if your current system constantly requires maintenance or replacement parts.
  • Old Age or Outdated Technology: Water softeners typically last 10-15 years. Older models may not perform as well as newer ones and are more prone to failure. If your system is over a decade old, consider replacing it for better performance and energy efficiency.

When you schedule a replacement with Laughlin, our technicians follow a thorough process to ensure your new water softener system is installed correctly.

Here's a detailed look at our process:

  1. Preparation: The technician will begin by shutting off the water and power supply to the current unit. They will gather all necessary tools and supplies and prepare the area by draining the old water softener.
  2. Remove Old Unit: Next, the technician will disconnect the inlet and outlet pipes, disconnect the brine tank, and carefully remove the old water softener unit from your home.
  3. Install New Unit: Your new water softener unit will be positioned and installed according to the manufacturer's guidelines, ensuring it is securely connected to your plumbing.
  4. Connect and Setup: Once the installation is complete, the technician will restore the water supply and program the new unit with the appropriate settings for your home.
  5. Testing and Cleanup: Finally, the technician will manually start a regeneration cycle to verify the new unit is functioning correctly. They will also clean up the work area, leaving your home as they found it.
