Why Should You Install A Water Softener

If you live in the United States, there’s a good chance you have “hard water”.

This means the water you’re using to cook with, bathe in, and wash clothes contains calcium, sulfur, iron, magnesium, lead, and limestone. In some areas, it’s even polluted with sewage waste and industrial run-off!

water softenerHard water is not “technically” unsafe, but it does shorten the lifespan of your pipes and appliances, it’s terrible for your hair and skin, and it causes you to use considerably more dish soap, laundry detergent, and electricity. So why put up with all of these detrimental effects if you don’t have to?
The process of dissolving and eliminating these contaminants from water is called “softening”. By installing a whole-house water softening system, you can avoid all of this nastiness:

Clogged Pipes

If you’re experiencing frequent clogs, hard water could be the culprit. The calcium and magnesium in hard water builds up in your pipes impeding the flow of water and causing them to clog more easily. Eliminating these corrosive minerals will help prevent clogs and extend the life of your pipes.

Damaged Clothes

Washing your clothes with hard water actually damages the fibers of your clothes causing them to deteriorate and fade more quickly. The mineral content in hard water makes your whites dingy and your colors dull. Clothes washed with soft water not only last longer, but they feel better against your skin!

Hair & Skin Problems

Hard water dries your hair and skin. By eliminating these impurities from your water you’ll avoid skin conditions like eczema and your hair a will feel softer and healthier.

Bad Flavor

Eliminating these contaminants from your water will make it taste (and smell) better. That means your coffee and everything else you make with that water will taste better too!
Start saving time and money and protect the environment in the process!

Water heaters are the second biggest consumer of electricity in most homes. Hard water causes scaling inside your water heater; this makes electric water heaters approx. 21% less efficient and gas heaters approx. 29% less. This means that a water softening system will significantly reduce your electric bill.

Soft water makes soap and detergents lather more and clean better, so you’ll use up to 75% less laundry detergent, dishwashing soap, shampoo, and other cleaning products. Less soap also means less soap curd which makes cleaning faster and easier, and you won’t have spots on your glassware or silverware!

Your water softening system will also help you avoid costly plumbing repairs and extend the life of water-dependent appliances like your coffee maker, dishwasher, water heater, and washing machine.

When you add up all these savings, you’ll not only recoup your investment in as little as 2 to 4 years, but you’ll reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the environment by as much as removing a full-sized SUV from the roads for an entire year!
