You never really know what could be in the water coming through your faucet. Having a water softener can be a great investment and give you some peace of mind.
Water can contain lots of funky excess minerals. These can make your water smell and taste strange. Hard water might be discolored and leave a filmy residue on your sinks and dishes. Even worse, some of the nastier impurities that can be found in drinking water can cause or worsen irritating skin conditions. Let's talk about five reasons why you should consider having a water softener installed.
Using a water softener will make your water taste better. It's better to drink and cook with. The water softener eliminates odors and tastes that excess minerals cause. Soft water improves the taste and enhances the flavors in your cooking. It also blends more evenly than hard water and dissolves other ingredients properly for a smoother taste in your mixed drinks and tea.
Water softeners use salt and ion-exchange resins to remove the calcium and magnesium from hard water. This reduction of lime and calcium buildup results in a richer lather and more thorough wash from your soaps and laundry detergent. By removing those hard water minerals, it helps cleaning products work better so you won't have to use as much to get the job done. It doesn't leave a streaky, spotty residue on dishes and surfaces after you rinse.
Water softeners are a water filter for the whole house. Softened water will be much easier on your water heater, dishwasher, and washing machine. Calcium and magnesium can cause limescale and scum to build up and form deposits and blockages in your plumbing. This will put a strain on appliances, causing unnecessary wear and will make them less efficient.
Unclean drinking water can be a real nuisance. Having a water softener can take away some of your struggles. It removes impurities like calcium, magnesium, and iron from your drinking water to make it silky and luxurious when you take a shower. You can fill a glass straight from the tap and enjoy clean, odor-free drinking water with peace of mind. It will also keep everyone's clothing looking cleaner and keep the fabrics softer longer.
Some of the minerals in hard water can even cause plaque and buildup on your hair and skin. It can cause or worsen conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and dandruff. Soap scum particles can be stuck in clothing and irritate skin problems. Mineral deposits of lime build up on the hair and cause it to be drier and less manageable. Water softeners remove these excess minerals to make your water better for your skin and hair.
Having a water softener installed is a great investment. You will save money on soaps and detergent and by making your appliances more efficient and last longer. It will help in so many areas to improve the health of your family and the cleanliness of your clothing, dishes, and home. Call Plumbing Outfitters today at 512-269-1382 for installation.
