Do you want to improve the water in your home? Then, a water softening and filtration system might be the correct answer. These systems are the all-in-one solution to multiple water problems. But what does a water softener do? And is it worth it?
Here are seven benefits to using water softening and filtration systems:
1. SOFTER SKIN AND SILKIER HAIR
You’ll have softer skin and silkier hair, for starters, because chlorine and hard water aren’t causing damage. Also, since your skin won’t be so dry, you won’t have to apply tons of lotion every time you bathe, saving money. Soap forms a curd instead of a lather with hard water, but it lathers easily with soft water.
2. EXPERIENCE BETTER-TASTING WATER
One of the main reasons our customers love their filters is that it makes tap taste better. However, the benefits of installing a whole-house water softener and filter extend far beyond taste. You will not only save money on bottled water, but you will also have better-tasting water from every tap in your home. Think of all the cooking you do with tap water. When you prepare food and beverages prepared with softened and filtered water, everything will taste better.
3. USE LESS SOAP
With a whole-house water softener and filter installed, you will use up to 75% less soap. Saving money on soap is one of the top advantages of soft filtrated water.
4. SEE LESS SCALE AND SCUM BUILDUP
The primary purpose of a water softener is to reduce scale buildup. This means you won’t have to spend time scrubbing to try to remove all the buildup from your showers, sinks, and other surfaces. In turn, you’ll save money on cleaning products, too. When cleaning with soft water, you won’t need to use as much soap or detergent, and you also won’t need to buy cleaning products to remove scale buildup, making many parts of your house much easier to clean.
5. HAVE FEWER STAINS ON DISHES
Hardness minerals in your water cause those annoying spots on your dishes, shower doors, fixtures. Removing these minerals virtually eliminates these unsightly spots. However, since soap doesn’t quickly rinse away with hard water, you’ll often see a ring of soap scum around your bathtub and sink. With softened water, the soap will simply wash down the drain.
6. HAVE CLEANER AND BETTER LOOKING CLOTHES
When soap curd gets stuck between clothing fibers, your laundry can become stiff and discolored. Furthermore, chlorine causes dyes to fade. The benefit of using soft and filtered water is that your clothing and linens will last longer and retain their original color.
7. YOUR PIPE AND APPLIANCES WILL AVOID COSTLY REPAIR
Hardness minerals tend to build up inside of pipes and appliances, causing damage and inefficiency. Also, chlorine tends to dry out the rubber parts of your appliances and will need to be replaced more frequently. With a whole-house water softener and filter, you can avoid these problems.
If you want all the benefits of softened, filtered water, the best thing to do is install a water softening and filtration system for the entire house. A high-quality system will last decades.
