How does a Tapworks water softener work?
A Tapworks water softener extracts the hard minerals from the water in your home, which means you experience truly softened water. It’s a simple scientific process... inside the water softener is a vessel of resin beads; as water flows through the beads, they extract the hard minerals and replace them with harmless sodium ions. Once the resin beads are covered with hard minerals the water softener automatically flushes the deposits away to drain, using a concentrated brine solution. The resin beads are left refreshed and ready to make more soft water. This simple process and Tapworks’ clever technology means you always have soft water on demand.

Your Tapworks Water Softener questions answered!
Q: Does my tapworks water softener have to go in the kitchen?
Where possible the water softener should be sited close to the rising main, allowing for any required hard water draw off points, i.e. drinking tap and
outside tap. In addition, the distance from the softener to the drain should be kept as short as possible. It is possible to site the water softener in the garage or even outside.
Q: Can you drink softened water?
Softening water slightly increases the amount of sodium in the water. Typically a glass of softened water will contain about 50mg of sodium. A slice of brown bread contains around 200mg.
Q: Must there be a hard water drinking tap when you install a water softener?
Water Authority bylaws currently state that a hard water drinking tap is always recommended. You can install an in-line drinking water tap or a tri-flo drinking water tap. However, where the water hardness is below 400ppm calcium carbonate there is NO mandatory requirement for a separate hard water drinking tap, because softened water complies with the drinking water regulations.
Q: Can I fit a water softener if I have a combination boiler or megaflow heating system?
Yes. Tapworks water softeners can easily meet the water flow required by unvented or direct feed systems.
Q: Will existing scale be removed from the pipework when a water softener is installed?
Yes, by fitting a water softener, over time scale will be removed from your existing pipework.
Q: How much salt will the water softener use?
It depends on how much soft water you are using, but as a guide, an average family will probably use about 6 bags of tablet salt a year.
Q: I suffer from dry skin, will softened water help?
Anecdotal evidence shows that people with dry skin conditions show an improvement when using softened water.
Q: Will I save money with softened water?
Softened water will save you money in several ways. Less scale in your pipework, heating system and appliances means they work a lot more efficiently. It is common that a water softener can save you up to 15% on your heating and hot water bills. You will use less cleaning products, and bathing and laundry products can be reduced by up to 50%.
