Do You Need a Water Softener?
If you are noticing mineral scaling on your plumbing fixtures, it may be time to consider a water softener. Did you know that hard water that leaves deposits in your piping can increase your energy costs? It can also shorten the life of your appliances. This mineral scaling deteriorates the plumbing, which can lead to costly repairs down the road.
Soft water will help prevent build-up of mineral scaling. Have you ever noticed orange or brown stains on your fixtures, water heater, clothes washers, dishwashers, or other appliances? This is due to hard water and can be prevented with a properly installed water softener. According to Masters Water Conditioning Corp., “As little as 1/8” of hardness scale on a water heater element will reduce heating efficiency by 20%”.
Not only is soft water better for your home’s plumbing systems, but you’ll also feel and see the benefits. When showering with softer water, you will notice it feels slightly different when you wash your hair. Soft water is known for leaving hair silkier and shinier. Also, hot and soft water will leave your dishes more sparkling clean. You will have a reduction in spotting, filming and residue on your dishes. Additionally, you’ll notice your clothes will feel cleaner and look brighter! Since fabric fading is greatly reduced, you may notice your clothes lasting longer.
