Why should I install a water softener?

Posted on

In addition to leaving stains on your plumbing fixtures and dishes, hard water presents a number of hidden problems and added costs to the homeowner. But is a water softener worth the cost, and what does it actually do?

Hard water contains high levels of magnesium and calcium. A water softening system removes these minerals before the water gets to your faucet or appliances, protecting your home, your family, and your wallet. Here’s more good news: today’s water softeners are efficient and highly effective – meaning you’ll have a supply of softened water around-the-clock, even in homes with high water usage.

A water softening system makes a significant difference in a number of ways:

  • Increased efficiency of water heating systems.
  • Increase the lifespan of household pipes and appliances by up to 30%.
  • Healthier hair and skin.
  • Save money on cleaning agents and help protect the environment.
  • Save time by cleaning less.
