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.

    Soft water sounds like a great investment. I love the fact that having a water softener can decrease monthly energy bills! Ours are high, so I’d love to try this out. Our water is pretty hard, so this is good to know.

    Not many people realize how much damage hard water can do to their plumbing, so it is great that you bring that up. In addition to that though, the hard water can also cause some damage to any machines that make use of water like the washing machine. Because of this, choosing to condition and soften your water can actually lead to increasing the durability of your pipes and appliances.

    I like how you mentioned that soft water keeps the skin cleaner, softer, and moister. Like Utah, I live in an area where there is an exceptionally dry climate. And since, my skin is rather sensitive to this, I get rashed and other types of skin irritation often. Thanks to your advice, I now have an idea to avoid it. I’ll get someone to help install a water softening unit in my home as soon as I can.

    Since my family has moved in our place, we’ve noticed that both our skin and hair have become too dry. It’s important for us to find a solution so we can enjoy a moisturized skin and soft hair again. This is why I’m glad that you talked about how you should consider soft water to keep your skin cleaner and softer because hard water can cause skin irritation. I will make sure to talk to a professional to inquire about soft water. Thanks!

    It’s interesting that soft water can help to make your moist skin. My skin gets pretty dry sometimes. Maybe it would be a good idea to get a water softener so I can fix that problem.
