Why is Soft Water Important
Most of the region’s water supply comes from drilled wells, which contain a high level of minerals. These dissolved minerals like calcium and magnesium make the water “hard” to use and work with. Iron from well water can also cause yellow, brown, or rusty stains on water-using appliances and fabrics.
In contrast, soft water lets you:
Save Hard Cash—Soft water actually saves you money because you’ll be able to eliminate many cleaning agents and detergents… and you’ll use dramatically less soap and shampoo to create a soft sudsy lather. Without scale build-up, your water heater will use up to 29% less energy.
Look Your Best—With soft water, dryness and itchiness give way to soft, supple skin and hair becomes shiny and silky. Even shaving is softer and smoother.
Have Cleaner, Softer Clothes—In hard water, abrasive minerals and undissolved detergents cling to and mat fabrics, leaving them rough and dingy. Soft water is gentler on fabrics and natural fibers, clothes rinse cleaner and brighter, free of soap and mineral residue.
Protect Your Valuable Investments—As hard water is heated, minerals precipitate forming a scale that damages appliances. Soft water will protect your dishwasher, washing machine, water-heater, kettle, coffee maker and plumbing.
Work Less, Sparkle More—Without abrasive minerals and “soap curd” you’ll enjoy spotfree glasses, cutlery and dishes. And you’ll have glistening tubs, shower doors, sinks and fixtures with a lot less work.
