What are the advantages of having a Domestic Water Softener?
Along with the obvious advantages that softened water has upon a household (less need for soaps and chemicals, healthier hair and skin, protection of water using equipment) there are also some great advantages that could in turn save money.
Having soft water saves you money. When your water is soft, you can use much less soap and fewer cleaning products. Your budget will automatically reflect the savings.
Your plumbing will last longer. Hard water can cause a build up of scales from a build up of mineral deposits. Over time, pipes can clog, water flow can diminish and water pressure can be reduced. This doesn’t happen with soft water. Soft water is low in mineral content, therefore doesn’t leave deposits in the pipes.
Your hot water heater will last longer. Scale and lime build up created by minerals will not occur if your water is soft. This concludes to a prolonged life of your hot water heater. Another advantage is that by preventing deposits in your hot water heater, it will cost approximately 20% less to heat the water that your family will use. At the end of a year, these savings can really add up.
Most water using appliances will last longer. From your coffee pot to your humidifier, soft water inhibits a build up of minerals and adds life to these products.
