Benefits of Treated Water
It is estimated that more than 80 percent of homes in the United States have a hard water supply. Hard water contains excessive amounts of metals and minerals such as iron and calcium. While generally safe, hard water can do damage to appliances and leave stains on your clothes. Water softeners are designed to remove these excess minerals and metals from the water you use every day. Benefits of using softeners include:
• Easier Cleaning – Dishes and clothes may have sub residue due to hard water. This residue may show up in your shower, bathtub, and sink. It means more cleaning and purchasing special cleaners to remove the excess mineral deposits.
Note: A salt-free softener is an excellent choice for dealing with lime scale deposits.
• Extended Appliance Life – The minerals and metals found in hard water can build up in your appliances over time. This can shorten the life of your appliances and mean more repair and maintenance issues.
• Faster Water Heating – According to some estimates, water heaters heated with soft water can be from 22 to 29 percent more efficient than water heaters heated with a hard water supply. Soft water also requires less effort to heat, which means that you have a supply of hot water when you need it.
• Cleaner Plumbing System/Fewer Plumbing Issues – Hard water deposits can build up in your pipes over time and cause issues such as clogs and corrosion. Hard water can also clog plumbing fixtures. A shower head, for example, may need to be replaced in just a few years.
