Using a water softner in your kitchen can help reduce limescale, allowing your appliances to work optimally and saving you money on energy and cleaning products.

How does a water softner work?

Water softeners can be hugely beneficial in almost any catering business. Plenty of appliances not only use water, but are also connected to the plumbing in order to run. Examples of these include espresso machines, dishwashers and even steam ovens.

Water softeners work by passing water through a bed of resin. These resin beads are negatively charged and attract positively charged ions, such as calcium and magnesium. This exchange process removes these minerals from the water so they don't build up in the pipes and prevent appliances from working efficiently. The resin beads eventually become saturated with minerals and need to be regenerated. This is done using a salt solution, which removes the minerals from the beads and back into the wastewater, which is then flushed down the drain.

Is a water softner suitable for my business?

Catering kitchens can benefit from using water softeners for a number of reasons. Firstly, water softeners can help to reduce limescale build-up in appliances and pipes. Limescale can cause appliances to become less efficient and can even cause damage to them over time. Additionally, water softeners can also help to improve the quality of the water that is used in the kitchen. This is important because better quality water can improve the actual taste of food and drinks. Lastly, water softeners can also help to reduce the amount of detergent and other cleaning products needed to keep the kitchen clean, saving costs in the long term.

What are the advantages of using a water softner?

  • Reduces the need for more detergent
  • Protects appliances from the inside
  • Improves the taste of dishes
  • Prevents limescale build-up
  • Saves energy costs

How do you maintain a water softer?

Installing a water softner is not a difficult task and, once it is installed, it only requires a little bit of maintenance. If you are considering a water softner, it’s important is to determine the best location for the machine. You need to choose a location that is close to a drain and where there is enough space to easily access the machine for any maintenance. After the machine is installed, it is important to test the water to ensure that it is being properly softened. You will also need to make sure you replace the salt tablets from time to time.
