Things You May Not Know About Water Softeners

Soft water coming out of a shower head Do you know about water softeners? They can get rid of calcium and magnesium, eliminate scale throughout your plumbing, last between 15 and 20 years, and reduce your electricity bill.

Most People Need Water Softeners

Do you need water softeners? Most people do! About 85% of the water in the U.S. is hard, so it makes sense to use water softeners. Hard water has a high amount of calcium carbonate in it. If you have hard water, you can expect stains to appear on your sink, bathtub and even on utensils like forks and knives. You’ll need to use more soap to clean these things. When you wash your clothes in hard water, expect them to fade. When you wash your own hair in hard water, expect dry hair and skin afterward. Meanwhile, scale deposits appear on appliances in your kitchen as well as in your plumbing/pipes. Yikes!

Water Softeners Help in Many Ways

When you use a water softener, you won’t need to use as much detergent, and your clothes won’t be as stiff. Meanwhile, your water heater’s exchange efficiency improves and you won’t need to use as much warm water to clean your hair and skin. Also, you won’t get sediment build-up on household items like cups, cutlery, etc. So, expect fewer (if any) stains!

Thanks to water softeners, you’ll use less water, get softer fabrics when you do your wash, and have healthier skin, too.
