Have you ever battled water spots on your dishes or car or noticed calcium, lime or rust build up on your faucets and bathroom fixtures? You have hard water. Don’t feel alone, 85% of the United States is in the same boat.
Hard water is a common problem for homeowners and businesses. The buildup of minerals such as calcium and magnesium can cause scale to build up in your plumbing, water heater and appliances and builds up on fixtures. A high-efficiency water softener is an inexpensive and user-friendly solution to all your hard water problems.
Benefits of installing a residential water softener:
Longer living appliances:
The American Water Works Association states that hard water scale can decrease the life of toilet flushing units by 70%, faucets by 40%, and dishwashers and clothes washers by as much as 30%.
Soft water is easier on household plumbing and water using appliances because it reduces hard water scale. It will extend the life of your water heater, dishwasher, and washing machine. It reduces or eliminates rust stains on plumbing fixtures and clogged shower heads.
A study conducted by Ohio State University comparing the time required for typical cleaning tasks was increased by almost 50% with hard water compared to soft water.
With soft water, you won’t have to battle spots on your dishes or scrub cloudy shower doors. Water softeners make dishes spot free, shower doors scum free, and your clothes softer, whiter and brighter.
More good hair days:
Hard water can cause soap to make your skin feel dry and itchy and your hair to be limp and dull. Bathing with soft water will make your skin feel more moisturized and your hair cleaner, softer and shinier.
With soft water, your soap and shampoo will lather better, requiring you to use less to get the job done. You will also use about 50% less laundry soap and dish soap with a water softener in the house. A water softener will also reduce your fuel costs as it improves the energy efficiency of your water heater.
