Benefits of a Water Softener in your home.

According to

Hard water contains high traces of calcium and magnesium ions, which can create limescale and have a damaging effect to the internal heating and plumbing systems of your home, as well as limiting the effectiveness of soaps and cleaning products. Soft water doesn’t contain these elements, and as a result, households with water softeners are capable of saving a considerable sum of money throughout the year for a variety of reasons.

Benefits of a Water Softener:

  • Improve the Efficiency of your Water Heater

    • Scum and scale deposits from hard water could lead to blockages and cause damage to your water heater. Hard water can also reduce the life of your water heater, causing heat efficiency loss of up to 12%.
  • Save Money on Cleaning Products

    • Hard water contains magnesium and calcium ions that reduce the effectiveness of soap. However, with soft water, cleaning can be achieved at a lower temperature using fewer cleaning agents, resulting in a better outcome.
  • Better for Skin and Hair

    • Soft water is a game-changer for skin care, while hard water can worsen conditions like eczema. The excessive use of soap in hard water leads to soap scum, a potential irritant for the skin. Soft water makes clothes feel softer and helps prevent skin issues caused by abrasive clothing.
  • Protection for your Appliances and fixtures

    • Hard water buildup can cause blockages in plumbing systems, including appliances such as refrigerators, dishwashers, and washing machines. Soft water can remedy limescale deposits and provide a longer lifespan for your overall plumbing system and appliances.

Contact your local city to find out your water’s hardness. Anything over 5 grains per gallon (GPG) should have a water softener.
