The Benefits of Water Softening
August 23rd, 2016 Aquarius Blog
It might be hard to believe, but something as simple as installing a water softening system in your home can be extremely beneficial. Aside from being able to boast to friends and family about having pure, clean water on demand, you’ll also enjoy some pretty nifty perks as well:
- Cleaner Dishes: Hard water prevents soap from fulling rinsing, leaving a streaky, soapy residue behind. Aren’t you tired of finding water spots on your glassware after it runs through the dishwasher? Soft water makes rinsing soap away a breeze!
- Softer Laundry: The minerals found in hard water can harden and cake on during the wash and dry cycle. They can also cause clothes, towels and sheets to dull or yellow over time. Stop settling for dull, scratchy linens, and start flaunting fluffy, vibrant shower towels!
- Spotless Showers: Imagine what that leftover soapy residue can do to your shower tiles and tub. You guessed it — that all-too-familiar residue ring, yuck. Softer water will wash away shampoo and soap completely, leaving your bathroom fixtures cleaner for longer.
- Silky Hair & Skin: Your body will benefit from soft water too, particularly your skin and hair. Without that icky film, skin and hair will be softer and stronger. Don’t you want to feel squeaky clean after your morning shower?
- Longer-Lasting Appliances: It’s not just your clothes or dishes that are affected by hard water, but the machines that wash them as well. Over time, minerals can build up in your dishwasher and washing machine, hindering their ability to function efficiently.
- Hotter Water, Faster: Soft water heats up quicker than hard water. In fact, softening your water can increase efficiency for electric water heaters by 22%, and for gas-powered water heaters by 29%. Less energy used means less money spent!
- Clearer Plumbing: Just like your washing machine and dishwasher, your pipes, faucets and showerheads can become clogged by scaly mineral deposits. Softer water means you’ll be calling the plumber less often.
