Have you noticed that your dishes and clothes are often covered in white spots and your hair and skin feel more dry and itchy?

Depending on the area you live, the minerals in the water can cause problems for your home and family.

A water softener can remove hard minerals such as calcium and magnesium from your water.

This can eliminate common water issues such as clogged pipes, spotty dishes, and glassware, or dry skin and hair.

What is a Water Softener?

A water softener is essentially a filtration system for your home.

It works to remove the minerals that cause hard water.

Hard water contains higher amounts of both calcium and magnesium. These two elements bond quickly with trace amounts of other metals and these bonds build up quickly, which is how “hard water” got its name. It’s hard mineral deposits that the water leaves behind. Over time, this leads to clogs, breaks down appliances and leaves behind hard water spots and dry skin.

A water softener is a filtration system that provides better quality water for your home.

Signs You Need a Water Softener

  • Mineral-like Crust Buildup: Next time you’re in the bathroom, look at your faucets or shower head carefully. If you can see a crust of mineral-like material around the fixtures, it’s likely a sign that you have hard water leaving deposits behind. This is a good sign that you may benefit from a water softener.

  • Soap Scum Buildup: If you keep scrubbing those shower walls, or are struggling to get your glass dishes clean, this is another sign of hard water. Soap scum and water spots aren’t dirt – they are mineral deposits, which can be very difficult to clean on their own. Water softening eliminates these problems by reducing the mineral content in the water.
  • Stiff Clothes: Hard water makes your laundry soap less effective, resulting in dull, gray, stiff, or faded clothing. Soft water requires less detergent and makes it more effective leaving your clothing cleaner and much softer.
  • Irritated Skin: If you step out of the shower feeling dry, itchy or flaky – it’s likely the result of hard water. Soap doesn’t properly dissolve in hard water, so your shampoo and body soap linger on your skin and increase irritation.

Benefits of Having Soft Water

  • Saves Money: Hard water causes both immediate and long-term costly problems. Today, you’ll spend more on laundry detergent, shampoo, and dishwashing agents. In the future, you’ll have to replace your appliances sooner because the hard water wears them down faster. Additionally, mineral buildup in your pipes requires more water pressure and increases your energy consumption.
  • Increased longevity of water-using appliances
  • Softer skin and hair: Homes with a water softener enjoy a deeper lather when bathing and benefit from the natural oils in your skin and hair that are often stripped away by hard water.
  • Cleaner, spotless dishes: Hard water leaves a cloudy appearance on your dishes and silverware. By removing the minerals that cause this buildup, your dishes come out sparkly and clean every time.
  • Brighter and softer clothes: Using hard water means you’re washing your clothing in minerals. Those minerals cause your clothing to be hard, stiff, and dingy. Soft water dissolves into clothing, allowing your detergent to work properly and your clothing to be softer and cleaner.
  • Less time cleaning: Because soaps, detergents, and cleaning agents can’t fully dissolve in hard water – you find yourself constantly rewashing dishes and laundry. Instead, soft water fully penetrates and dissolves soaps so you can clean quickly and effectively.

FAQs on Water Softeners

Hard water is water that contains a high concentration of both calcium and magnesium. These minerals cause hard water stains and soap scum to appear around your sink and shower. As these minerals buildup, they cause your water-using appliances to lose pressure and stop working properly.

Yes, softened water is perfectly safe to drink. It doesn’t remove the natural minerals we rely on from out water, it only filters the excessive minerals.

It is impossible to accurately determine the life of your resin simply due to all the factors that could come into play. However, if it is well-maintained, the resin should last as long as your water softener, which is roughly twenty years or more.

This depends on how often your system needs to regenerate. When you start to see the water above the salt, you will know it is time to add more! This is generally every eight weeks.
