Water Softeners and Reverse Osmosis


Water Softeners


A water softener is a unit that is used to soften water by removing the minerals that cause the water to be hard. When the water contains a high level of calcium and magnesium it is called hard water. Hard water can cause several problems throughout your home that you may or may not even notice.

Hard water is known to clog pipes, complicate soap and detergent dissolving in the water and also leave behind water spots on your dishes and plumbing fixtures. It also creates a scale buildup inside your plumbing pipes and water appliances. This  reduces the efficiency of your water heater and other home appliances. This also means more energy is used to heat your water and other home appliances which will result in increased energy expenses.

Soap is also less effective in hard water because it reacts to form the calcium or magnesium salt of the organic acid of the soap. Skin washed in hard water is typically scratchy and dry, which is a result of the soap buildup on your skin. Also hair that is washed in hard water can be dull-looking and also sticky. Some people might experience a few of these hard water problems as others may be accustomed to the feeling of their clothes, bedding, skin and hair after washing them.

It is very important to protect your home with softened water to prolong the lifespan of your plumbing pipes, fixtures, water heater and other home appliances from the scale buildup and clogging.

The good news is that hard water can be treated with a water softener to reduce the negative impacts of hard water.
