7 Reasons to Invest in a Water Softener

If you still don’t have a water softener in your home, you are missing out. Hard water discretely leaves its unforgiving mark all over your home. Hard water is simply water with high levels of minerals like calcium and magnesium. These minerals leave behind a residue that ranges from annoying to destructive. Installing a water softener is the safe, and easy answer.

Hard water is known for leaving spots on your dishes, residue on your clothes, and even clogs in your pipes. Investing in a water softener will be one of the best decisions you ever make, and here’s why:

  1. Squeaky Clean Dishes

    By removing unnecessary minerals, water softeners will reduce those nasty water spots that hard water leaves behind. Dishes will become cleaner with less effort. Sounds like a win-win to me!

  2. Soft Skin & Silky Hair

    The residue of hard water is much more visible on your glass dishes, but the same concept applies. Hard water leaves a film of residue on your hair and skin. This is why hard water users often are left with dry skin and unruly hair. Bathing with soft water will help to clean your hair and skin without stripping it of its natural softness. Who doesn’t want softer skin and hair?

  3. Soap Savings

    Soft water is smooth as butter. Soap and shampoos react so naturally with softened water that they lather and spread with ease. This way you can use a lot less and still get the results you desire. Saving money and taking names.

  4. Keeping Clothes Clean & Fresh

    The hard water residue claims another victim: your laundry. In this case, hard water leaves your clothes stiff, worn, and only semi-clean. By using a water softener, your clothes will get cleaner, last longer, and feel softer.

  5. Clear Pipes, Bright Future

    That darn hard water can even lead to buildup in your plumbing. No one wants to deal with the disasters that can come with clogged pipes. Softening your water will give you a way better shot at keeping those pipes clear. Seriously, why have you not installed a water softener yet?!

  6. Appliances Lasting Through the Ages

    So many of your home’s appliances run water: washing machine, dishwasher, coffee maker, and ice machine, just to name a few. Hard water can take its toll on these appliances over time. Using soft water in these appliances will keep them working smoothly for years to come.

  7. Hot Water in Record Time

    We know you haven’t thought of this one. Softened water actually heats up faster than hard water! Maybe the time you save won’t be substantial, but think about the energy and water no longer wasted.
