Advantages of having a Softener System
Healthier Skin & Hair
If you enjoy taking long showers, don't be surprised if guests comment on how much softer your skin is than theirs. Water that is highly mineralized will dry out their skin while yours remains hydrated due to the presence of calcium or magnesium ions in water. A water softener system will get rid of all those minerals without affecting the hardness of your drinking water. This means your soft water will create fewer split ends and frizzy hair.
Water that contains a high amount of minerals will produce limescale on the inside of water heaters and dishwashers. This mineral buildup can cause rust, leaks, and an unpleasant taste in your drinking water. The benefits of installing a water softener include removing all minerals from your showering or washing water so no limescale is left behind to cause damage.
Reduces Lime Build-up on Plumbing Fixtures
Maintains Softer Clothing
Softer clothing may just be one additional benefit of installing a water softener into your home. Since hard water doesn't dissolve well in such an environment, clothes coming out of the laundry could feel stiffer than what you remember from before. You may also notice more static being produced by synthetic fabrics. A water softener system can help you maintain a better balance of minerals in your water so clothes feel softer and any static cling is minimized.
