If you are always waiting for the water to heat up, re-rinsing your dishes and clothes, and your sink is often covered in white streaks — you might be dealing with hard water and should look into water softening. Though it might seem like a minor issue, hard water can be doing more damage to your home than you realize and could cost you money in the long run. So if you are on the fence about tackling your hot water problem, here’s why water softeners are worth it.
Hot Showers Fast
Water heaters are known to heat up soft water faster than hard and in a more energy efficient way. By installing a water softener, you are looking at better energy consumption and a lower utility bill. So not only is softer water convenient, it’s efficient too.
Cleaning’s a Breeze
Hard water isn’t the best with rinsing and can often leave your laundry, or dishes with streaks or white spots. Soft water rinses better and will leave your dishes, clothes and even your skin feeling clean. Your bathtub and sink won’t be exposed to this residue either, making cleaning more manageable and less frequent and your need for soap and detergent will be less. Because your appliances are working more efficiently, you are also expanding their lifespan, saving you money on replacements down the road.
Better For Plumbing
If hard water is leaving white spots on your dishes, bathtub, and clothes — you can be sure it’s staying in your pipes too! Those white deposits can build up and lead to corrosion and clogs. If you are looking to keep your plumbing lasting you for years to come, you’ll want to invest in a water softener stat.
