3 Reasons to Choose a Salt-Powered Water Softener
If you live in an area where hard water is predominant, like many of us here in the Minnesota and Wisconsin areas, you may have considered installing a water softener from time-to-time. Perhaps you’ve even done some research, but haven’t been able to decide between a salt or salt-less option. Fortunately, we’re here to help you make your decision, and we say salt-powered all the way — here’s why:
Reason #1: They leave no minerals behind.
Unlike their salt-less alternative, water softeners that use salt to carry out their intended task actually work to remove hard minerals from your water completely. Electric softeners, or water conditioners as they’re more accurately called, only restructure the minerals in the water so that they adhere to each other instead of your plumbing.
Reason #2: There are far more benefits.
An electric softener is known for its ability to ward off scaling in your plumbing and around your faucets and fixtures. However, that’s about as far as its benefits will go. With a salt-powered system, you’ll enjoy completely mineral-free water — which means softer linens, hydrated hair and skin, and less time scrubbing harsh rust rings off your bathtub.
Reason #3: Your pockets will prosper.
Though salt-less water conditioners can reduce scale buildup, they can’t completely eliminate it, especially in appliances like your water heater, washing machine or dishwasher, where water often sits stagnant. With a salt-powered water softener, those hardness minerals won’t even stand a chance, as they’ll be removed way before the water even flows into your home. That means you’ll spend less money maintaining and replacing your appliances over time. Plus, you’ll be using less water to get the job done, since soft water lathers and rinses much easier, so you can enjoy a lower water bill as well.
