Softer water has beneficial effects on your hair, your skin and your bank balance. By removing the minerals from your water, your skin and hair can feel more moisturized, leaving them softer and smoother than when bathing with hard water.
The lack of mineral deposits also means soft water lathers more easily, enabling you to use less soap or cosmetics when washing or bathing.
Soft water also reduces the amount of cleaning products you need to use for your appliances and around the house. Your use of soap products and detergents can be reduced by up to 50% by installing a water softening system, saving you time and a considerable amount of money on your shopping.
Prevent a build-up of lime and calcium deposits
The reduction of minerals in the water prevents a build-up of lime and other impurities that can affect your pipes and household appliances, making them cleaner and more efficient in the long term. If you are already experiencing problems with lime build-ups in your fixtures, using soft water can start to reduce and limit the impact hard water may have already had.
You will notice an increased lifespan of household appliances such as coffee pots, water heaters, dish washers and washing machines, as well as an improved performance on your water heaters.
Using hard water can also result in stains to your clothing and linens due to the build-up of minerals, which can be removed and prevented by introducing soft water to your home. Soft water will prevent streaks or marks on your dishes and glasses and stop the appearance of rings and stains on your plumbing fixtures in the kitchen and bathroom.
