If you have a reverse osmosis system in your home you need to change filters. Read up on the brand you have and be sure to follow the instructions and change it, this will keep the water flowing. Also you will need to change the membrane since on so many units you only do every four- or five-years people seem to forget it. The membrane is what makes the water into bottle quality water, it will remove 97.6% of everything. The other filters remove the chlorine, herbicides, pesticides, and organics but for it to be bottle quality the membrane must be functioning.
So many people never add air to the tank, this is important to know because the water in the tank is inside a bladder that is inside the tank. When you put air in the tank it pushes against the bladder to make the water come out. If the air gets low, you will not be able to empty the bladder to full capacity. You will get like a half of coffee pot and it will stop. There is a place on the back of tank just like on a bicycle tire then you use a bicycle pump to put the air. You need to be careful if you over fill with air you will bust the bladder. Yes, the tank can be ruined so, empty the tank of all water. Add air usually around 6 or 8 lbs of air which is usually a half of pump. If you want to know more there are quite a few videos on You Tube.

If you want to substantially reduce or remove the disinfecting chemicals that water companies put in your water here in San Antonio we recommend you put a carbon tank before the softener. All municipal companies in San Antonio and south Texas adds Chlorine, Chloramine or Chlorite that are required by standards.
In the shower your skin absorbs the chlorine products while you are breathing them into your lungs. You are washing and cooking food, and giving pets water with chlorine products. So, for these reasons we suggest you put a carbon tank before the softener, we feel this is the correct way to substantially remove the disinfecting chemicals, odor and taste from your water to every faucet in your house.
Chloramines can be substantially or completely removed by upgrading carbon to catalytic carbon. Simple Water Softeners installs a separate tank with one to one and a half cubic foot of carbon. Many companies will install a single 4” by 10” or 20” single carbon filter. Which you the home owner will have to change about every three months to have it functioning. The tank of carbon you will change the carbon about every two to three years. The price to maintain will be close in cost, yet a whole lot less work for homeowner with the tank.
Unlike the individual carbon cartridges which can trap sediment and dirt causing pressure to drop the tank will not. They are available with an in- out valve which will filter the whole house. They can also be purchased with a W.S.1 valve to optimize the tank to its full capabilities. The media inside tank will be determined by the chemistry of your water. Chlorine is the number one thing that breaks down your resin, with the carbon removing the chlorine the resin life is extended.
Abel also believes having the carbon in a separate tank from the resin the overall cost of maintaining the unit will be cheaper in the long run, compared to a single unit tank with media combined. He has several other reasons why the double tank is his preference. We will be happy to demonstrate at showroom and answer any questions you have regarding this. We encourage you to research and ask questions, so you can determine what chemistry of water you want for your family and then we will be there to help you get it. If your limited-on space we do carry the dual media tanks, check out our Premier Units.

If you are on a municipal water supply meaning if you pay for your water Chlorine or Chloramine has been used to disinfect water. Chlorine has been used to eliminate waterborne disease for decades. It is extremely effective at killing pathogens and diseases. It is widely used because it’s inexpensive and easy to control and monitor. Chlorine and chloramine easily maintain a residual level in the water distribution that continues protecting drinking water supplies from bacteria growth. This is why chlorine and chloramine are considered the best disinfecting agents. Despite its effectiveness and inexpensive ability to disinfect the water supply, chlorination systems have some problems of its own.
When chlorine, and chloramine are used as a water treatment, it combines with organic matter in the water to form byproduct compounds called Trihalomethanes (THMs). These compounds are toxic when consumed, inhaled, or applied to the skin. Research conducted on the health effects of chlorinated drinking water has demonstrated a variety of toxicity issues. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has concluded that there is evidence to support a potential association between long term exposure to high levels of THMs and some types of cancer. In addition, the Environmental Research Foundation does agree the disinfectants have other negative issues associated with them. Water disinfection is extremely important to rid of the bacteria and viruses in the water.
The most obvious problem with chlorine and chloramines in the water is that it leaves an unpleasant taste and smell behind. These products can alter the taste of water, coffee, tea and other beverages. The food you prepare with this water from washing or cooking will be affected and you will be consuming the chlorine or chloramines. Chlorine is ingested from drinking water and is also inhaled in showers. It can even make hair and skin feel dry after showering. The problem not only lies within drinking water, but also in bathing water. Showering and bathing in chlorinated water may expose us to even more chlorine than drinking the by products in the chlorinated water. While showering, chlorine is not only absorbed through skin but also vaporized in the shower and inhaled into the lungs. This means the majority of our daily chlorine exposure comes from showering. When giving our pets water we will be giving them the chemicals. If used in a aquarium immediately from faucet your fish would die. With chlorine you could let the water sit for a while and the chlorine would evaporate eventually from the water. If the water was treated with chloramine you could never use in the aquarium.
Carbon filtration adsorbs the disinfecting chemicals without leaving any negative effects on your water supply. Adsorption takes place when your water comes in contact with the carbon filter. Carbon will substantially remove the disinfecting chemicals and improve, taste, odor, remove organic compounds to deliver clean, filtered water to every faucet, shower-head and water using appliances, in your home.

San Antonio and surrounding areas have some of the hardest water in the United States. The average is 17.5 GPG hard.
Limescale build up has bad effects on a tank-less hot water heater. Even a small amount of limescale will affect how it operates, costing you more money to operate and will significantly shorten the life of the unit. Many company’s warranties state if water hardness is beyond 10.5 you must have a water softener. Read your warranty.
In San Antonio a water softener is a necessity not a luxury. San Antonio has some of the hardest water in the country. A water softener helps protect your largest investment, your home. Calcium adheres to all the pipes in the house, it will take time but it is inevitable it will happen.
The softener protects all your appliances that use water. Hot water heaters even drained and cleaned yearly will not last near as long as one with a softener before it. Refrigerators, washers, dishwashers even coffee makers are becoming very expensive in today’s market. Give them all a much longer life and fewer repairs with a water softener. A water softener makes you hair and skin feel so much better.

No water pressure in your house? Do you seem to have pressure a few days and then it is gone again?
First if you have a water softener put it on by-pass. Then check to see if you have normal pressure. If the pressure went back to normal, yes there is problems with the water softener. If the pressure did not get better call the water company.
A water softener has resin inside the tank. Resin is tiny little hard beads. When the resin has gone bad it gets more like the consistency of jelly and the water cannot get thru it, therefore you lose pressure. If the pressure is changing over days, the resin has probably started to go bad. The unit regenerates you have pressure a few days and then you lose pressure for a few days until unit regenerates again. Eventually the pressure will get to where it is very noticeable. By-pass water softener and schedule to get resin in the softener changed out.
If you have a high-quality softener you will not have a problem finding someone to do this. If you have a lower end unit, this is where you probably retire it.
If you experience sudden unusual low water pressure in your house recommend you call Lisa at (210) 960-2555 to discuss it over
