Benefits of a Water Softener

Hard water is a very common occurrence for homes in San Antonio, TX. Although it is not dangerous to drink, it does cause damage to your appliances, laundry and pipes.

Benefits of a water softener

Hard water can affect appliances such as the washing machine or dishwasher – a shortened lifespan will occur due to a buildup of scale that is caused by the minerals present in hard water. Hard water can also make your skin dry and itchy, it can cause your clothing to become dull, it stops your soaps from lathering, it leaves scum rings around your bath, shower, and sinks and it also makes your dishes cloudy and spotted.

If you have hard water in your home, having a water softener installed comes with many different benefits:

  • With a water softener, your shampoo will lather to its full potential so your hair can reap all the benefits of the shampoo and come out feeling soft, clean and shiny.
  • Hard water can create soap scum rings in your sinks, baths, and showers. A water softener will reduce the amount of scum that is left behind so you won’t have to do as much housework.
  • When your home has hard water, it can damage silverware and glassware. After the installation of a water softener, your glasses and silverware will come out spotless , shiny and clean.
  • When you don’t have a water softener, soaps do not work as well as they should do due to them having opposite charges. You can buy special soaps that work with hard water, but why should you trouble yourself to find these particular soaps when you could have a water softener installed and use normal soaps and shampoos that are available from hundreds of stores.
  • When you have a water softener in your home, you won’t have to use as much soap, shampoo or body wash to get a rich lathering. Soft water can reduce the amount of product that you buy and use by around 75%.
  • When you wash fabrics in hard water, they can come out dull and not very soft due to the minerals getting trapped inside. With a water softener, materials come out much brighter, softer, and they can also last for longer.
  • A water softener in your home can also reduce greenhouse gasses, so you’re doing your part for the environment.
  • Appliances that use hard water such as your washing machine, dishwasher or water heater, can have their lifespan reduced due to scale building up inside of them. A water softener removes all the hard minerals from the water so your appliances can last for much longer.
  • Water heaters can also be affected by hard water. To protect your water heater and prolong it’s life, get a water softener system installed. If your water heater is using softened water, your annual energy bills can be reduced by 22%-29%.

Fully Trained, Friendly Staff

There are not many cons to having a water softener installed. One of the main disadvantages is the minerals that are getting wasted.

Many people also think that softened water isn’t healthy to drink so they keep hard water running to their cold faucet, or they only drink filtered water.
