Carwashes able to remove water softeners

HOOVER, AL — The carwashes are using new technology to fight spotting and scaling caused by hard water.

HOOVER, AL — A carwash chain based here recently removed the water softeners from three of its self-serve carwashes, according to a press release.

The Jan. 3 release stated that the locations now use a computerized, electronic water conditioner. The system provides a solution without the need for chemicals, salt or maintenance.

Reverse Osmosis 101

The Krystal Kleen Car Washes are located in a hard water area. For this reason, the washes required water softeners to prevent scale formation and water spotting.

Water softeners are utilized to overcome the calcium carbonate that is the primary component of water hardness. However, in many states including California, municipalities and water departments are limiting, and in some cases prohibiting, the use of salt-regenerating water softeners due to concern regarding the increased levels of salt in ground water.
