Are your faucets covered in stains? Do you suffer from chronically dry skin? Does your glassware seem more prone to breaking? Do your clothes look faded?
These are all common signs of hard water. No, hard water is not an immediate health or safety concern but it can contribute to larger problems for your home down the road. Mineral build up in your plumbing, water heater, washing machine, and dishwasher can lead to major damage.
Luckily, there’s a solution to this problem, water softeners. Water softeners remove excess calcium and magnesium collected by the water as it traveled through the bedrock underground. Through a process called ion exchange, these hardness minerals are pulled from the water by the resin inside the softener. After the resin media can’t hold any more hardness minerals, the system will go through a “regeneration” sequence that uses salt water to knock the calcium off the resin and flush it down the drain, giving you an on-going solution to your hard water problems.
Water softeners pose many benefits for your home including increasing the longevity of your plumbing, water heater, and clothes. Additionally, this will save you money in the long run, if your home has been suffering from water hardness problems.
Simply put, if you have hard water, you should have a water softener. The immediate side effects might not sound catastrophic but can certainly lead to major problems over time. Unsoftened hard water could potentially cause your water bills to skyrocket, plumbing issues, and poor water heater efficiency. Many high-efficiency appliances of today require soft water to operate as the manufacturer intended.
