Are there rings around drains or in the toilet bowl? Is there scale buildup on your showerhead and faucet fixtures? Does it take extra soap or shampoo to get lather? These issues are caused by hard water. A water softener is the solution.
Softening removes minerals from your water that cause embarrassing rings and stubborn scale, so that you don’t have to spend your time trying to scrub them away. Plus, with soft water your soaps and shampoos will work the way they were designed to, and you’ll see more suds while using less product.
Do you have a problem with scale buildup on your faucet fixtures, coffeemaker and refrigerator water dispenser? Are the dishes coming out of your dishwasher spotty and cloudy? Hard water is to blame. But you can fix it easily with the right water softener.
Soft water prevents mineral deposits on fixtures and leaves dishes and glasses clean and sparkling—and looking like new longer.
Are your towels coming out scratchy and flat? Are your clothes getting dingy and dull? That’s a hard water problem. It’s an easy one to solve with a water softener rated for your water’s hardness level.
With soft water, your towels stay softer and last longer. Your clothes stay cleaner and brighter too. Soft water lets your laundry detergent work better, so you could end up using less and saving money as well.
Hair and skin
Hard water problems cause hair to be flat, dull and dry. It dries your skin and can even make skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis worse. A telltale sign of hard water is shampoo and soap that doesn’t lather. And that squeaky clean feeling? It’s telling you that your hard water is rinsing away healthy skin oils. Soft water is healthier for your hair and skin and may allow you to use less soap and shampoo.
Appliances and pipes
Scale deposits you can see on fixtures signal scale you can’t see in pipes and water-using appliances.
Likewise, if you’re seeing sediment in your sink, tub and toilet, which is common with homes on well water, then it’s settling in your pipes and appliances as well.
Soft, sediment-free water lessens wear and tear on appliances, so they work better and last longer—and you save money. Soft water can help your water heater last up to 50% longer and consume up to 29% less energy.
