Why use water softeners?


Why use water softeners?Water that is too heavy in minerals---such as calcium and iron---is called “hard water.” This water can actually cause health problems, as well as plumbing issues. To remove these minerals and help purify your water, you can install a water softening system. Here's a look at six great benefits of water softeners.

Protect Appliances

By removing minerals from your water, you can help to prevent problems from arising in appliances such as your washing machine and dishwasher.

Healthier Showers

When there isn't an excess of minerals raining down on you in the shower, you'll likely notice that your skin and hair are smoother.

Easier Chores

With soft water, it's less likely that soap scum will form as you go about doing your house chores like scrubbing floors and countertops.

Lower Energy Bill

By using a water softening system, you could see a significant decrease in your energy bill. One area where you'll certainly save money is with your water heater, which expends significantly more power when it also has to heat up the minerals in the water.

Softer Laundry

When clothes are washed with softened water, you'll notice that they're softer when you put them on. Water softeners can also help with preserving the color in bright clothes and the whiteness of your white fabrics.

Improve Health of Sewer System

Limescale is a chalky calcium deposit that can build up in pipework and affect water pressure. With a water softening system, you can prevent limescale buildup and reduce the chances that you'll need repairs.
