Benefits of Installing a Water Softener

A water softener can provide many benefits to your household. Some of the advantages include:

  • Cleaner and shinier silverware and glassware.
  • Softer, smoother, and cleaner hair and skin.
  • Less soap scum on showers and bathtubs, resulting in less housework.
  • Less usage of soaps and shampoos, as water that’s gone through the system can result in a rich lather, allowing you to use up to 75 percent fewer products.
  • Softer and brighter fabrics and clothing.
  • Longer-lasting appliances such as coffee makers, ice makers, dishwashers, and washing machines.
  • Reduced greenhouse gases are the equivalent of removing one SUV from the road for one year.

How To Maintain Your Water Softener

There are several ongoing maintenance tasks you should perform on your water softener to keep it working properly. These can include:

  • Add rock salt on a regular basis. Most units have a light that will alert you when the system is running low on salt.
  • Clean the unit at least once a year.
  • Have a professional inspect the system on a regular basis to look for any potential issues.

Signs You Have Hard Water

Are you not sure if you have hard water in your house? Some symptoms you can look for are:

  • Spots: Look for small, white spots on glassware or dishes after washing them.
  • Bottle test: Fill a plastic bottle halfway up with tap water. Put the cap on and shake the bottle. Then, dump out the water. Next, fill the bottle again and add a few drops of soap to it. Shake the bottle and look for suds. The longer you have to shake the bottle to get suds to form, the harder your water likely is.
  • Low water pressure: If you notice low water pressure from your shower head and faucets it could be due to a buildup of minerals that are clogging the fixtures.
  • Faded clothing: Watch to see if the colors in your clothing are fading, or are wearing out more quickly.
  • Irritation: Pay attention to if your skin feels dry or your hair becomes brittle.
