Keep Your Water Softener Performing at Its Best with Brine Tank Cleaning

Your water softener is a valuable investment for reducing water hardness and improving the quality of water in your home. Like any system, it requires regular maintenance to keep performing at optimal efficiency. Over time, sediment, salt bridges, bacteria, and mold can accumulate in the brine tank, clogging lines and valves while compromising water purity. Aqua-Wise Water Treatment Solutions offers professional cleaning of water softener brine tanks in the Tampa Bay, Florida area to restore functionality and water quality.

Why Regular Brine Tank Cleaning is Essential

Hard water residue, excess salt, dirt, and other contaminants collecting in the brine tank can lead to a number of problems:

Reduced Efficiency

Clogged lines and valves prevent the brine solution from properly charging the resin bed to exchange calcium and magnesium for sodium. This allows more hardness minerals to pass into your home's water.

Bacteria and Mold Growth

Warm, damp salt tanks allow mold, algae and bacteria colonies to thrive. These microorganisms spread through water pipes and can cause health issues.

Salt Bridge Formation

Clumping salt forms a solid bridge, preventing contact between water and salt needed to create the regeneration solution. Spot treating salt bridges leads to uneven brine concentrations.

Equipment Damage

Corrosion and buildup of sediment leads to breaks, leaks, and the eventual need for water softener replacement.
