Most water contains more than water. Almost all water found in the U.S. is hard water. Hard water is water that is contaminated with dissolved minerals – like calcium, magnesium, sulfur, iron, lead and limestone – that can have a negative impact on you, your household and your pocketbook. Depending on where you live contaminants from sewage, industrial waste and agricultural run-off can also seep into the water supply.
Hard water produces scale. If there are stains or buildup on your sinks and
bathtubs, or if your water tastes or smells odd, you probably have hard water.
If left untreated, the minerals in hard water will cause yellow stains on
plumbing fixtures and be deposited as scale, eventually clogging plumbing
and shortening the life of appliances like washing machines, water heaters
Water softeners eliminate the effects of hard water. A water softener can
extend the useful life of appliances and household plumbing
systems by as much as 30%.
Soft Water makes a difference you can feel and see all over the house. In the bathroom your soap and shampoo with lather better and you will feel noticeably cleaner and softer. There will also be no soap scum or mineral deposits to clean off sinks, showers, tubs and toilets. In the laundry clothes will be softer, cleaner, whiter and brighter – plus they will last longer. In the kitchen dishes will clean up more easily and be spot free. Throughout the house the water using appliances will last longer and run better.
