Water softeners are essential in helping us lower the heating bill, reduce the amount of soap used, and even lower the amount of time required to clean the spots off the glass or silverware. Hard water is not very appealing to the eye when you see lime deposits on the faucets or white spots on your tiles or shower doors. Slowly over time you notice that your heating bill starts to climb up over the years when you finally realize that you don’t use as much heat as they say you are. You’ll find that your appliances and showers will slowly break down and will not allow water flow because of the hard water build up if they aren’t used every now and then. These are all things that water softeners can help prevent and sometimes reverse.
Soft water doesn’t contain any of the hard water minerals like calcium or magnesium. Instead, it carries sodium chloride (salt). Soft water is more aggressive when it sees lime scale build up and will actually eat away any existing hard water until it is all gone. Water softeners are not difficult and using one doesn’t have to come with a headache.
