When the weather gets hotter outside, the water in your area can actually be “harder” than normal. Normal fluctuations happen throughout the year, but when there is a lot less rainfall and the temperatures start to climb, the hard water minerals in your water system increase. You can’t do much to change the quality of water in your area, but you surely can invest in a water softener and make sure your actual home’s water stays in tip-top shape year round. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why you should take extra care of your water softener this summer and every summer.
Protect Your Skin and Hair
Whether you have been swimming in your backyard pool or spending the day on the lake, most people like to take a nice, cleansing shower when they return home at the end of the day. If you have hard water, the products that you might have trouble washing shampoo out of your hair and body wash might leave behind residue as well. If you want to say goodbye to bad bacteria on your skin, softened water is the way to go.
Protect Your Clothing
Your laundry takes quite a beating during the summer. You have dirty clothes from doing yard work, there are bathing suits to wash, and your kids are constantly coming into the house with dirty clothes. Hard water affects how clean you can get your clothing since it can cause soap stains to be left behind after your clothes are dry. Softened water will make your clothes appear cleaner, and you will have to use less soap to get the job done.
Protect Your Equipment
Hard water can have a negative effect on your appliances as the years go by. Usually, this is because of a mineral buildup on some of the internal parts. In order to protect your equipment and keep it free from hard water damage, you should have softened water running through your appliances. This will save you money in the long run, and you can invest in that backyard pool your kids keep asking for!
