It’s pretty disappointing when you pour a bowl of cereal only to go to the fridge and realize someone put an empty container of milk back on the shelf! Just like keeping the fridge and pantry stocked with necessities, a twin tank softener will keep your home supplied with soft water on-hand when you need it.
A twin tank softener will give you consistent soft water, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so you never have to take a shower or do the laundry without soft water. This advanced option is a great investment for large families and heavy water users.
What is a Twin Tank Softener?
All water softeners have a resin bed that needs replenishing after a certain amount of water has been treated. This amount will vary from depending on the size of the unit, but a single tank softener will not supply soft water while it’s regenerating because the resin cannot be cleaned and perform hardness removal at the same time. With a twin softener, two identically sized tanks full or resin are joined and controlled by a single valve that works independently to soften your water. When one tank is being regenerated, the other one takes over, so you always have soft water flowing through your home.
Why should I consider a twin tank softener for my home?
Nothing feels quite like washing off the dirt and sweat from a long day of yard work, even if it’s your second shower of the day! Heavy water users can use up to 100 gallons a day and not even realize it! If that’s just one person’s daily usage, you can imagine what a family of 4 can go through in a week. A twin softener will make it virtually impossible to run out of soft water. You will have a constant supply of ready to use soft water when you need to use it.
Do you often have company visit for the weekend or extended periods of time? You wouldn’t ask your guests to bring their own towels and sheets when they are invited into your home. When they depart, you are the lucky one that gets to strip the beds and toss all the used towels into the washing machine. Your home may be subjected to double the number of showers, dishes, and laundry, and a twin softener is sure to be able to handle the additional water usage that your home and guests will require.
Twin Softener Capacity
If heavy water usage like this is a normal routine for your household, you may start to notice your hair looking a bit dull, and your skin is getting dry and itchy. Maybe your clothes don’t seem as bright, and your towels aren’t as soft as they used to be. If this is the case, it very likely that your softener is reaching its capacity before regeneration and you have been using hard water for an extended period of time.
When your softener has reached its capacity, your hot water heater will begin to fill up with hard water. Not only will the hardness minerals due damage to the heater’s components, it also takes a considerable amount of time to get 100% soft water flowing through your home again when its blending with hard water stored inside the hot water heater. This is why you may experience the issues mentioned above even though you have a water softener. A system that can’t keep up with how much water you need treated will allow hard water into your home affecting the efficiency and lifespan of your water heater and other water using appliances.
