Why should hard water be treated?
You may be confused by terms like "hard water" and "soft water," but if you experience hard water, you will understand the difference right away. Hard water is what's responsible for the mineral buildup in your shower and around other water fixtures, leading to soap scum, discolored fixtures, and clogged shower heads. Hard water is caused by the presence of certain minerals such as iron, calcium, or magnesium. These minerals can interfere with the effectiveness of soap and promote the formation of limescale. Hard water can impair the functionality of your shower heads and faucets, discolor your fixtures and clothing, and create unsightly buildup.
How do you know if you need a water softener?
Water softener systems help to counteract these effects by removing harsh minerals from the water. Typically, lime or salt is added to the water to exchange some of the mineral ions. You may need a water softener system if…
- You have reduced water flow.
- Spots and debris have appeared on your fixtures.
- Orange spots and stains appear on your fixtures or your clothing.
What are the benefits of this system?
By installing a water softener, you can protect the health of your plumbing system and ensure the smooth flow of water in your pipes and through your faucets. Water softeners can also remove iron, which is an especially problematic mineral. Even in small quantities, iron buildup can stain and permanently ruin sinks, tubs, fixtures, and clothing. Iron can also create a bad taste in food and drinks made with your water. Installing a water softener has many benefits:
- Protecting your silverware, glassware, and cookware from stains and spots.
- Reducing housework since you don't have to clean as many stains or buildup.
- Savings on household cleaners, soaps, and shampoos.
- Softer hair and skin.
- Protecting clothing and linens and prolonging their life.
- Prolonging the life of appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines.
- Improving water flow.
