Hardwater causes everything from crusted faucets and showerheads, to reduced waterflow, to a reduction in the lifespan of your water-using appliances. By addinga water softener to your home, youcan eliminate these problems. Plus, you’ll be saving money in the process.Below is a list of reasons why a water softener in your home just makes sense(and cents!)
Cleaner clothes and dishes for less!
Accordingto the Water Quality Research Association,“consumers can cut back on dish and laundry detergent use by 50 percent or moreand lower washing machine temperatures from hot to cold just by using softenedwater,” (saving energy). “In dishwashers, areas with very hard water can cutdetergent use by more than 50 percent after softening and get the sameresults.”1
Increasethe lifespan of your appliances
Hardwater creates a crusty build-up of scales which you’ll see around your faucetsand showerheads. This build-up also occurs inside your pipes and can restrictwater flow to appliances while impeding your water heater and increasing theenergy needed to heat your water. This scale build-up also wears yourappliances more quickly and becomes a source of costly repairs. Additionally, itleads to staining in your showers and sinks, requiring a lot of additionalcleaning (and cleaning products) to remove it. Soft water stops scale at itssource!
When scale builds up in your pipes andit’s hard for water to flow through, your appliances won’t work as efficiently,which leads to higher energy bills. As mentioned above, with a water softeneryou’ll also see decreased heating bills since you won’t need to heat water toas high of temperatures in order to remove stains or effectively clean yourclothes.
Savemoney on household products
Hard water does not lather well, causingyou to use extra soap, while increasing your water usage. You also will bebuying soaps and detergents more frequently. You’ll also buy more cleaners toget rid of stubborn hard water stains.
