Hard water is an issue that over 85% of households face in this country. A water softener is a solution that is popular in dry, arid regions like Southern California. Water that is high in dissolved minerals can cause a range of problems such as soap scum in sinks and bathtubs, bathtub rings, spots on dishes or shower doors, reduced foaming and cleaning abilities of soaps and detergents, dingy and yellowed clothes with soapy residues that require extra rinsing to remove, clogged pipes from buildup of minerals, increased water heating costs from buildup of minerals, reducing efficiency of water heaters, and possible skin infections from bacteria trapped in pores underneath soap scum.
If you use an old water softener system in your home, consider replacing it with a more eco-friendly, metered soft water system such as the ones we offer.
While these are all annoying effects, hard water is not a serious hazard to human health and can be treated. Likewise, a recent independent laboratory study by Battelle Memorial Institute states that soft water produced better function, efficiency, extended life, and appearance. “There were no clogged pipes or water lines. The appliances used significantly less energy to operate. The appliances and plumbing lasted longer and needed fewer repairs. There were no water spots, tarnish, or stains to be cleaned away. Specifically, the water heaters using soft water had operating costs 47% less than those water heaters used with hard water. Even the most energy efficient water heater on the market was 10% more efficient with softened water.” Less energy required means less money required to run the appliances. Eventually pipes can become completely clogged, requiring expensive replacement of an entire plumbing system. “Of all the savings in a study of Chicago motels, the largest percentage was registered in the area of plumbing repair costs.”
