I bet you didn’t know Rainaldi Home Services has a soft side. But we do. Our soft side is to serve the residents of Central Florida and bring them water that improves their quality of life. We are experts at finding the best water softener for your family. Let’s take a look at how water softeners can benefit your family.
What is hard water?
Hard water is water with high mineral content, measured by dissolved calcium and magnesium in the water. A telltale sign of hard water is when you notice spotting or film on your drinking glasses. It doesn’t mean your water is undrinkable. It’s just unsightly and tastes a little off.
Why is hard water bad?
Hard water leaves a scale not only on your drinking glasses but can also reduce the life expectancy of your plumbing, fixtures, and appliances when hard water is heated, solid deposits of calcium carbonate from within the plumbing and appliances. That film causes your devices to work harder, such as your water heater needs to heat the water through that scale. Pipes can clog. And your coffee maker might stop working.
That’s right. Hard water isn’t a friend to your daily cup of joe.
Central Florida is notorious for having some of the hardest water in the United States, and at Rainaldi Home Services, we’re working to remedy that problem.
Softening your water and your budget
Using a water softener from Rainaldi can help prevent the buildup of minerals and film on your plumbing, appliances, and fixtures. Reducing buildup will create better water flow. Less buildup on your pipes means your pipes aren’t working as hard to keep that water in, making them more resilient with softer water.
Softer water is better for your home’s utility budget because it is easier to heat, translating to less wear and tear on your water heater.
Grimy clothes and filmy dishes? Not any longer with a water softener. Soaps and detergents can penetrate dirt and filth and dissolve better in soft water rather than hard water. It takes twice the amount of detergent and soap to clean clothes and dishes with hard water, so you’ll save money cleaning with softer water.
Softer skin and shinier hair
Hard water can do much damage to clothing, as well as your hair and skin. With soft water, clothing stays brighter longer and is more comfortable to wear. Washing your clothes with hard water is like using dirty rocks to scrub your whites—you’re simply depositing minerals into your clothing.
Your skin and hair will thank you for the soft water. Hair is softer and holds moisture better, thanks to the lack of minerals in the water. Same with your skin—the minerals in hard water can remove your skin’s natural oils, drying out your skin and possibly leaving it irritated. Soft water allows your skin to hold moisture better, potentially saving you money in skin care products and procedures.
Smoother use of time
Having soft water also saves you time since cleaning takes less time and effort. You’re no longer re-washing dishes or running clothes to the cleaners because you can’t get your whites sparkling. You’ll also save on more minor plumbing issues with the softer water, giving you better peace of mind as a homeowner.
