Why Do I Need a Water Softener?

April 14, 2020


A water softener could prove to be one of your best investments. This is especially true if your home has hard water, which is caused by mineral buildup. Let’s take a closer look at why you may need a water softener.

Protects Your Plumbing System

Although calcium and magnesium won’t put your health at risk, these minerals can wreak havoc on your plumbing system. When left untreated for long periods, scale deposits are especially difficult to remove. This problem is similar to plaque inside an artery. Hard water makes it far less likely for your system to develop clogged pipes. A water softener could end up saving you thousands of dollars in the long run.

Better Skin and Hair

Hard water can make your skin and hair look dull. This is a result of the mineral deposits sapping your body’s natural oils, which ultimately leads to excess dryness. When showering in hard water, soap is also more difficult to rinse off. After the installation of a water softener, many people report a noticeable improvement in their appearance.

Easier House Cleaning

If you often notice soap scum in your bathroom and spots on your dishes, these issues likely stem from having hard water. Investing in a water softener will make cleaning your home much easier. No longer will you need to use harsh products to remove the scale.

Clothes and Appliances Last Longer

It’s no secret that hard water can ruin clothes. When washing laundry in hard water, don’t be surprised if your clothes start to look dingy. The mineral deposits can cause staining and fading. Even worse, hard water can decrease the lifespan of your washing machine. After getting a water softener, expect your clothes to look much cleaner than before.
