Have you ever seen white chalky buildup on your faucets, the drains, or
the fixtures in your kitchen and bathroom? Chances are high that you have.
The majority of people in this country have “hard water” which
just means there is a lot of calcium and magnesium in the water.
When you really think about it, “hard water” may not sound
so bad. After all, the majority of people in the US have it, so it can’t
be that bad. And calcium is something we’re supposed to have in
our bodies anyway.
But if you don’t have a water softener, a whole-home plumbing system
that gets rid of hard water, your water lines and other belongings may
be at risk.
Here’s how this valuable system could help you.
Healthier Pipes: Your pipes are in better shape after you have a water softener installed.
The hard water could leave behind that chalky white residue in your pipes,
piling up until it restricts the flow of water, which would lead you to
replace the pipes prematurely.
Better Fixtures and Appliances: Your faucets,
water heater, and other appliances can be greatly affected by the buildup of sediment
that is left behind with hard water. It can clog up appliances and even
make your coffee maker stop working.
Cleaner Sinks and Tubs: The metal components of your tub, shower, and sink are often more difficult
to clean thanks to a buildup of white or yellowish residue. A water softener
can resolve this.
Cleaner Clothes and Dishes: Hard water makes it difficult for soap to dissolve. This means you might
notice soap scum after a load of laundry or water spots all over the dishes.
Soft water is better for cleaning for this purpose.
Better Hair: A lot of people claim softer water is better for the hair and the skin.
