Top 4 Benefits of Soft Water
You’ve probably heard a thing or two about water softeners, but you’re not sure if they’re worth the investment. Water softeners remove the calcium and magnesium minerals from water that make it “hard.” This softening process has a variety of benefits that improve your health and also increase the lifespan of your home appliances. Here are the top four benefits of home water softening systems:
Clean, Soft, and Moist Skin
Soft water keeps the skin cleaner, softer, and moister—this is especially important in Utah, where the exceptionally dry climate can cause skin irritation and even lead to increased risk of certain illnesses.
Keeps Plumbing in Better Condition
Soft water keeps your plumbing system in better condition. All the minerals in hard water can build up in your pipes, which will eventually limit the flow of your water and necessitate expensive cleaning or replacement.
Decrease in Monthly Bills
Soft water decreases your monthly bills. When you switch over to soft water, you’ll quickly find that you need less water to get clean when you shower—which means that your water and energy bills will be decreased. You’ll also use less soap when you shower and do your laundry. With the savings from lower bills, many find that the softener pays for itself within only a few years.
Cleaner Dishes and Laundry
Your laundry and dishes will get cleaner, faster. One of the most immediate benefits of soft water is that your laundry will feel cleaner, and your dishes will be spot-free after you run them through the dishwasher. Over time your clothes will remain more colorful and better quality. Your washing machine as well as dishwasher will also last much longer.
As you can see, soft water has many advantages over hard water, and it is a worthwhile investment for anyone looking to make their daily life a little more comfortable.
