Soft Water vs. Hard Water
What is the difference between soft water vs. hard water?
Hard water is a problem, especially in Southern California. You can immediately feel the difference on your skin and see the difference on dishes, windows and with other appliances.
The costs of hard water are significant as well:
- Clothing can become dull, worn and damaged in the laundry
- Skin feels dry and itchy; hair can get extra buildup, and become dull
- Glassware gets scratches and nicks, can become spotted and dull
- Silverware and plates get dulled and spotted
- Hard water affects the quality of soap and detergent because it reduces suds and overall effectiveness
- Due to hard water deposits, water using appliances such as washers, water heaters, and dishwashers wear out and deteriorate much quicker
- Plumbing is more likely to become clogged
Soft water can alleviate all of these issues, plus add a number of additional benefits to your home or office! Soft water systems essentially pay for themselves in savings in other areas and the benefit to quality of life.
Benefits of soft water include:
- Cleaner dishes that require less soap to clean, saving money
- Softer and smoother skin
- Hair is softer and healthier
- Clothing is cleaner, brighter, and lasts longer after washes
- Faucets are clear of build-up and residue
- Plumbing and other fixtures last longer
- Less time spent cleaning spots and hard water damaged areas
- Clean, clear water for every area of your home or office
