If you live in an area that gets hard water, you should consider adding a water softener to your house. Water is considered hard if it has a high mineral content (magnesium and calcium). Water that is free from the minerals (other than sodium) is considered soft water. When you have a hard water supply there are many negative consequences, such as bathroom fixtures that are left with chalky rings, shampoo or soap that does not lather well, clothing from laundry may look dingy and your water using appliances may have short lives.
Let’s have a close look at few benefits of installing a water softener system in your house:
Less soap consumption: Soaps, cleaning agents and detergents will lather better in a soft water. You will have to use less to get the same effect.
Nicer clothes: High amount of minerals can make your clothes stiffer. Your jeans, tops, skirts top, and various other garments may not be as clean. The colors will be much flatter when you’re dealing with hard water, Moreover your outfits may not last as long either.
Lower utility bill: It might not result in big savings, but your electricity usage will go down when you have a water softener system. That’s normal as your appliances will have to work harder.
Reduced stress on your appliances: Hard water may leave calcium deposits on the inner walls of your appliances, such as dishwashers, washing machines, boilers, water heaters, fridges, and so on. They will perform less efficiently and will also break down faster. With the installation of a water softener, your appliances will last much longer.
General cleanliness: There will be considerable change around your house. There will be fewer deposits on your coffee maker and water kettle, and your shower head will clog up less. You will have to clean less, and will have more spare time.
Cleaner glassware: With a soft water, there will be few spots on the mirrors, windows, and coffee tables.
Though you may have to spend some money for installing a water softener, but after that there is a low maintenance cost. You will have to add salt only occasionally. Water softeners pay for themselves several times over by keeping your appliances and pipes working efficiently in your house, and reduce any need for replacement and repair of fixtures.
