The Benefits of Water Softeners
A substantial majority of homes in Durham are dependent on hard water, or water that is full of calcium, iron and magnesium. Although the presence of these minerals may be beneficial when it comes to your drinking water, those same minerals are a source of trouble for your pipes, plumbing and appliances. Hard water makes it more difficult for soap and detergent to dissolve in the water used in washing dishes and clothing. Water softeners are often installed to remove the minerals.
The installation of a water softener can lead to several powerful benefits:
- Simplify your cleaning responsibilities. Hard water leaves behind a soapy residue, spots and streaks. The use of soft water leaves dishes, clothes and skin feeling and looking cleaner. Cleaning up after bathing or showering is easier without that buildup.
- Hard-water buildup affects more than the length of cleaning time. It can also damage wiring and clog the inside of pipes. This, in turn, leads to the need for repair or expensive replacements.
- Keep energy bills lower by shortening the amount of time it takes to heat water. Soft water heats up more quickly than water filled with minerals.
- Mineral deposits left behind cause corrosion and shorten the life of your plumbing system and your appliances. By installing a softener, you can enjoy peace of mind and financial savings as the plumbing lasts for much longer than when they are affected by hard water.
