How Does A Water Softener Work?
A water softener uses a medium that serves to exchange “ions” of calcium and magnesium with sodium or potassium. The water in the house runs through a media tank filled with a resin bed of small plastic beads designed to attract hard minerals present in the water. Eventually they are saturated with minerals and need to be cleaned or regenerated. Sodium or potassium is introduced to the media bed during regeneration. As this brine water flows over the resin beads ion exchange occurs, they swap places with the calcium and magnesium ions and the hard minerals are removed from the resin beads and discharged in the backwash water along with any dirt or sediment collected. The final phase rinses the resin bed with fresh water and loads the brine tank so it is ready for the next cycle. Automatic water softeners are usually programmed to recharge at specific times that will not disrupt the occupants. It is more water-efficient to have a metered that will regenerate only when required
How many watts does a 1 hp motor use?
Watt and HP are not energy units. The one hp motor will always use 746 watts, no matter how long it runs. So, if you run the motor for one hour, it would consume 746 kWh of energy.
Hi, I'm calling from the air conditioning company. You have an issue with your wall heater, right? And you're waiting for us to come out? I wanted to let you know that our guy will give you a call tomorrow between 12 and 3 PM.
Yeah, sure, that works. I'll be there tomorrow!
How do I flush out my drain system?
If your air conditioning drain line has a tee installed, remove the cap and pour one gallon of hot water down the drain slowly so water will not back up into the overflow shut off. Following the hot water, a cup of vinegar may be added to inhibit future buildup in the drain line.
I have an appointment for a technician to come out today between 12 and 3 PM. I just need to give you the gate code, #7507.
This is for your KitchenAid refrigerator set up for today. Thanks for the info. I'll pass this down to the technician appointed for your service.
Is there a difference between 110v and 115v?
There is no noticeable difference between 110V and 115V circuits. Outlets in your home are standardized to 120V, but due to factors such as line length and distance from the grid, you may only get 110V-115V. However, this doesn't affect how you can use the outlet; most electronic devices can withstand small variances in voltage. Therefore, they can all be plugged into a standard circuit even if the voltage is below 120V.
