Water softener systems require a number of supplies. Your business needs to stock an adequate number of each classification of supplies for the various types of water softeners.
The water softener resin forms the cornerstone of a good water softener. Fine mesh resin removes hardness such as iron from well water. But fine mesh resin has the disadvantage of restricting water flow and you can only use it in units designed for it.
Other supplies for water softening equipment include filters, tanks, valves, pumps, tubing, salt, water treatments (such as Calgon water softener) and other small parts. Unlike resin, which generally does not need replacement except in extreme conditions, these parts do require periodic replacement depending on the conditions in which the water softening equipment operates.
1. Stock the type of resin for the water softening equipment that you will sell
2. Choose from a large variety of water softening filters that work with the equipment you stock
3. Ensure you keep a large variety of salt and other mechanical parts that break down over time.
Look for a large variety of water softener filtersMany different impurities may exist in your local groundwater. You must be prepared to deliver or install various water softener filters for these different types of minerals and chemicals.
Stock commercial water softener salt and other consumablesWater softeners do not run forever. After installation some supplies must be continually resupplied, such as salt. Other commercial water softener parts, such as valves and pumps, may wear out over time.
Keep a supply of water softener resin on handAll water softeners do not use the same type of resin. The different types depend on hardness level of the water and the type of water softener used. Resins generally do not often require replacement except in certain conditions, or when the original equipment nears the end of its life.
- Study the local conditions before deciding on which water softening equipment and supplies to stock. In particular, filters purify for certain chemicals or elements. If these conditions do not apply to your area, do not waste shelf space with them. Stock only the items that customers in your area will likely need.
