North Phoenix water is hard, but a water softener can change the game for you and your home. How? Here are five benefits of using a water softener you should consider.
Less Scale Build Up
One of the major benefits of using a water softener is reducing scale buildup. Scale, also known as limescale, is that buildup of white, chalk-like substance where water collects or dispenses. You’ll usually find this stuff on your shower head, faucets, tubs, and appliances that use hot water, and it can be a nuisance to clean away.
With a water softener, you won’t have to spend time scrubbing to remove all the buildup from around your home. You’ll also save money on cleaning supplies and it will make many parts of your home easier to clean.
Protected Pipes and Appliances
Speaking of scale buildup, if it’s occurring on your faucets and showers, it’ll likely be occurring in your pipes. You just won’t be able to see it. Not to mention it can be incredibly hard on all your major appliances and cause damage and inefficiency faster.
A water softener will make your water softer on everything. This will reduce scale-related plumbing problems, like clogged drains. It will also help your appliances and pipes last longer and run better.
Healthier Skin and Hair
Another benefit of using a water softener is healthier skin and hair. If you’ve noticed your hair and skin is especially dry, or there’s a film on you after your shower, that’s a result of hard water. Soap has a hard time lathering up in hard water, so it can feel like you’re not using enough in the shower. Hard water also makes it harder to wash soap away, and the leftover soap can cause people’s skin to get dried out and itchy. Not to mention the mineral deposits that get left behind on the skin and suck out moisture.
After installing a water softener, you’ll notice it’s much easier to moisturize and maintain your skin and hair’s hygiene. And you’ll feel cleaner, too!
Softer, Cleaner Fabrics
The same way hard water makes skin dry and flaky, it makes clothes dry and scratchy. It can also leave that mineral buildup that soap can’t quite cut through, making you think your clothes are still dirty. Soft water won’t leave mineral buildup, so your clothes will become fresh again. That means no more having to wash them twice because they look dirty or being disappointed in the lack of softness.
Better Tasting Water
The advantages of using a water softener go beyond just taste, but it’s a popular reason for installing a water softener. Hard water can sometimes have an “earthy” taste to it, and that’s due to the traces of hard minerals. A water softener will remove the things you’d rather not be drinking, so you’ll be able to turn on any faucet in your home and drink better-tasting water at any time. No more bottled water needed!
