Frequently Asked Questions

Residential Water Systems

What is Water Softening? +

Water softening is the reduction/removal of calcium and magnesium ions, which are the principal cause of hardness in water.   The hard water enters the water softener, and tiny beads in the resin bed attract the hard water minerals, removing them from the water. When the resin beads are full of hard water minerals, they are flushed and drained with a brine solution during “regeneration”. The brine is created with salt you add to the softener. United Distributors features the most energy efficient water softeners, which use less salt and electricity than ever before.  And today, the amount of sodium released into a gallon of softened water very small, about as much as you get in 2 slices of wheat bread!  The benefits include brighter clothes, cleaner dishes, less detergent consumption and less water usage.   Your softener will protect your entire plumbing system and minimize scaling.

Should I be Concerned about Hard Water? +

Hard water can contribute to a number of problems for your home water system and the overall health of your family. When you use softened water you can: - Use less energy to heat water year after year. - Wash clothes in cold soft water with half as much detergent as washing in untreated hard hot water.  - Use 50% less detergent in the dishwasher. - Prevent hard water scale from shortening the life of your appliances, restricting water flow in your plumbing, and staining your bathroom fixtures.

How Do I Find Hardness in My Water? +

United Distributors will test your water to determine the level of particles and “hardness”.  Most studies show that only 15% of the United States has naturally occurring soft water.  The remaining 85% gets to fight the battles of hard water. Omaha has some of the hardest water in the country.

How Do I Soften My Water? +

Water can be treated or softened as soon as it enters your home, using many different methods.  We feature the best softeners in the industry, including those from 3M, with reserve capacity innovation.  The 3M Water Softener uses variable reserve logic to optimize regeneration cycles by evaluating past use.  This conserves water, salt, and energy, which saves you money.  United Distributors is here to offer you the best possible solution for your home softening needs.
