Bracing for the Ban

California State Assembly Bill 1366, signed into law by then Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2009, allows cities and counties to adopt ordinances banning the sale of water softeners and prohibiting the use of water softeners previously purchased by residents. This passage cast a pall over the 2009 and 2010 Pacific Water Quality Assn. (PWQA) conventions as the Legislative and Governmental Affairs Committee anticipated softener bans throughout the state.

Commercial Softening in a Salt-Sensitive World

Commercial softening provides a significant opportunity to well-grounded water improvement professionals. It requires a special skill set, similar to residential applications, but at an elevated and more detailed level. While the troubleshooting and repair methods may be more sophisticated, the basics are the same.

System configuration is more critical and variable, allowing for a wider variety of possible solutions. Choose wisely, as the cost of poor initial system selection will be exacerbated over the life of the equipment. The least expensive option is almost never the best.
