What are four benefits of water softeners?

Water softeners provide many benefits throughout the home, including for the pipes, appliances, and people living in it. Firstly, housecleaning becomes much easier with soft water because there is decreased hard water buildup on faucets, shower heads, and in toilet bowls. There is also less soap scum left behind in tubs and sink basins.

Additionally, dishes are cleaner and shinier, particularly when they are cleaned in the dishwasher because hard water spots are not left behind to cloud up glasses, plates, and silverware. Individuals will also save money because their bathroom soaps and laundry detergents will work better, creating increased suds in softened water.

Finally, fabrics, hair, and skin feel softer with no hard water deposits left behind on them. Moreover, white fabrics will remain bright without the dingy gray buildup from hard water.

How often do you need to maintain your water softener?

After installation, many water softeners need very little maintenance to continue to operate correctly and efficiently. Of course, homeowners will need to replenish the salt levels in the unit every several months in order to maintain the soft water that they want. However, some have a professional do this every three months for them.

When the salt is replenished, the individual should make a quick inspection to determine if the salt is being used up at the correct speed and if there are any leaks coming from the softener. Individuals should also notice if the softener begins to make loud noises that it never used to make, such as bangs and hums, or if it fails to run at pre-set times. These are signs it is time to have your unit maintained and serviced.

In any of these cases, a professional plumber can inspect the system and make any necessary repairs. Yearly maintenance by a professional company is highly recommended to lengthen the life of the appliance.

What are the signs you have hard water?

There are four easy ways that any homeowner can determine that water is hard without actually checking the quality level of the water itself. Firstly, mineral deposits will begin appearing on tubs, sink basins, and toilets, leaving rings of pink or brown buildup or leaving white flakes on the surface.  These minerals begin building up on faucets and shower heads, decreasing water flow dramatically.

Clothing washed in hard water will begin taking on a dingy appearance if there is hard water present. Colors will not be as vibrant as they once were and whites will become dingy and gray. Lastly, glassware will begin to develop spots and may become so scoured by hard minerals that they will develop a foggy appearance that cannot be removed even when washed in soft water.
