Farm houses usually have very high consumption of water. In addition to this some farm houses have swimming pools also.
There are two ways to install a Water Softener in a house :
1. On the roof top along with the overhead tank.
In such cases the water softener unit is installed just before the inlet of the storage tank. Raw water first enters the water softener where it gets treated for hardness ions. Soft water enters the tank and fills it. In this way , the entire house gets the supply of soft water.
2. On the ground itself
Some people prefer to keep the water softener unit on the ground itself if they have adequate space. In such cases the water softener unit is connected with the outlet of the motor. Hard water from the motor enters the water softener and after getting treated, goes to the overhead storage tank.
In case there are traces of sand in the ground water then it is recommended to install a Sand Filter unit before the Water Softener so that entire sand is trapped before it enters the Water Softener.
