Whether you are just commencing your research into water softeners or require water softener repair, our team of experts is here to help.
Benefits of Soft Water
Did you know using a water softener is low-cost and consumes less than $3 in electricity annually? It only requires 2.5 pounds of salt, 80% less than dial-style softeners. Moreover, soft water can make cleaning easier, help your appliances last longer, and prevent plumbing clogs.
Clog-Free Plumbing and Fixtures
Say goodbye to mineral coatings and low water pressure! With soft water, your plumbing will flow smoothly, and your fixtures won’t clog or lose their flow rate over time. You’ll also enjoy cleaner, splotch-free dishes and shiny faucets and showerheads.
Hard water can cause mineral buildup and limescale in your appliances, leading to frequent repairs or replacements. Soft water can prevent this by preserving the efficiency of your gas and electric water heaters and making your clothes look more colorful and your skin and hair smoother.
Efficient Water Heaters
Water heaters are more efficient when soft water is used. The factory efficiency rating of gas storage and tankless water heaters operating on soft water is maintained for 15 years. Using hard water can reduce the efficacy of a gas water heater by up to 48 percent.
Hard water can accumulate up to 30 pounds of crystalline scale in the reservoir of an electric water heater. The scale could be a better heat conductor. Because the element must work harder to heat water, it can diminish its lifespan.
Soft Skin, Brighter Laundry and Cleaner Dishes
Minerals from hard water accumulate on your skin and hair, causing them to become dehydrated. Additionally, it can cause razor burns.
Soft water is superior at removing detergent residue, resulting in softer skin and hair. In addition, your clothing will appear more vibrant, and your dishes will have fewer stains.
Less Soap and Cleaning Time
When you have hard water, you’ll need extra soap to create a decent lather, leading to scum buildup on your tubs. With soft water, you’ll use fewer cleaning supplies and save cleaning time while enjoying smoother skin and hair.
How Long Does a Water Softener Last?
A water softener that is proportionate to the scale of your residence will last for many years. The manufacturer and the amount of use determine its lifespan.
Is Softened Water Safe to Drink?
Softened water contains all the essential minerals. Although a tiny quantity of sodium is added to the water during the softening process, softened water is completely safe to consume.
What’s the Quality of My Drinking Water?
The purity of water varies by location and extent of treatment. The construction, mining, agriculture, and mineral deposits it flows through can also affect your groundwater.
You can determine whether or not your home’s potable water contains contaminants.
The Environmental Working Group provides a free database containing over thirty million state records of municipal water testing. Approximately 81 percent of community water sources tested in the United States contain contaminants linked to cancer, according to the analysis of the group.
