Water Softeners and Their Many Benefits
Water Softeners can be the perfect overhaul for your home’s water supply. Hard water is a significant issue for many homeowners. Some studies have shown that 85% of homes in America use untreated hard water. Most city water supply is treated with chlorine and has other substances which can be removed. Many people believe that the minerals like calcium and magnesium in the water build bones. Unfortunately, studies have shown that clean drinking water is best.
Hard water is safe to use in most cases, but you might consider installing a softener because of its many benefits. Soft water, when paired with a reverse osmosis system, will lead to healthier drinking water. Read on for more on how you can benefit from a water softener.

Water Softeners are Good For Your Hair and Skin
Soft water is good for your skin and hair. It will make it easier to lather up with shampoo and soap so that you can use less of each. The great thing about soft water is that it doesn’t have the same drying effects on your skin or hair as hard water does. Not only will you be able to maintain a better complexion and silkier hair, but you will save money on shampoo and conditioners will become a thing of the past.
Water Softeners Will Extend the Life of Your Appliances
Hard water contains high amounts of minerals which can build up inside your appliances and your pipes. Consequently, this will decrease their efficiency and lifespan. A study done by North Dakota State University has shown that water softeners can extend the life of your home’s appliances. This includes dishwashers and washing machines. With longer-lasting appliances, you not only save money but also help benefit the environment.
They Will Give You Faster Access to Hot Water
Soft water is better for your heating system because you don’t have the mineral build up in the bottom of the water heater. Because of this, your tank can heat up more quickly and save you money on the electric bill. This is great for your pocketbook and every bit counts.
The Many Features of Water Softeners
The list of water softener features is long, but here are some highlights:
Gallons of Water Used: A good quality water softener will be able to keep an eye on the amount that has passed through it. This allows you to look at the monitor and see how much water you’ve used that day.
Types of Softeners: The right water softener can make a world of difference for your family. In addition, there’s more than one type to consider. Electric units are less expensive and easier to operate in comparison with their non-electric counterparts which have longer lifespans as well as being more reliable. Furthermore, electric water softeners have to be programmed. Non-electric ones typically self-adjust which makes them easier to use.
Salt Types: The vast majority of water softeners use either block or tablet salt. Block is often preferred over tablets because it’s easier to store, handle and load.
