What are the Benefits of Installing a Water Softener?
Soap scum is usually formed from hard water during washing. With a water softener, the soap is easier to remove. Aside from the improved appearance and surface value found in bathtubs and sinks, cleaning dishes becomes much less of a hassle. It’s usually hard water that creates water spots on dishes, but a water softener will help you have clearer and shinier dishes free of soap scum and water spots.
Other benefits extend to the shower and laundry. After showering and washing your hands, your skin will likely feel softer and smoother with a water softener. Water softeners also help enhance the effect of your personal cleaning products, such as making soaps more “sudsy,” allowing you to use less soap per shower or wash.
You can even reap benefits when doing the laundry. Doing laundry with hard water can turn your whites into dingy greys, and stains that should be easily removed can cling to your clothing. With a water softener, you’ll get cleaner, brighter clothes that stay that way for much longer.
Does a Water Softener Affect Appliances Too?
Yes! It's not surprising to hear that water softeners help extend the life of your everyday appliances, such as an ice maker or coffee machine. In fact, the yearly cost of most devices that use water can be lessened anywhere from 22% to 29%. That's impressive, once you start factoring in all the other cost benefits of soft water combined. These benefits, along with reducing greenhouse gases every year, can really sway most anyone's opinion of hard water!
