How does a water softener work?
A water softener is a unit that removes calcium and magnesium from hard water by replacing them with sodium ions.

  1. Hard water enters your home from a main water pipe or well, and travels to the water softener.
  2. Resin beads in the tank attract and hold onto hard water minerals, removing them from the water.
  3. Softened water exits the tank and flows to the plumbing throughout your home.

The salt added to your water softener doesn’t make you water soft? It’s actually the tiny resin beads within the tank that filter out hard water chemicals. The salt is used to clean the resin beads during a regeneration cycle, allowing the system to continually remove hardness from your water supply.

Lead Removal

Soluble lead is invisible, odorless, tasteless, and needs to be chemically removed from water. PIONEER™ binders are designed to chemically react with soluble lead to create an ionic bond, kinetically removing lead from the water.

Particulate lead is like a tiny grain of sand that needs to be physically removed from water. PIONEER™ filter is specifically engineered to physically remove and filter lead particles from water which is often found as a result of corroded lead pipes.


The chemicals Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), also known as C8, and Perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) are bio-permanent, are resistant to direct oxidation, and do not break down naturally in the environment or the human body. Studies suggest that exposure to the chemicals may lead to cancer.

PIONEER™ successfully removes these chemicals and is installed where the water line enters your home, business or restaurant.
