If you’re reading this, you’re probably thinking about getting a water softener. They’re not an impulse purchase and it’s something you need to think about. It is a lifetime commitment. But, if you do decide to have one installed, there would be a lot of benefits. You would also find yourself saving money in other ways.
What is hard water?
Around the UK, the water is generally said to be ‘hard’. But what does that mean? Without getting too scientific, hard water means that the water you’re using will have a high mineral content, largely made up of calcium and magnesium. When hard water is heated, solid deposits of calcium carbonate form and this causes the flow of water to slow down. This means that it will take longer to heat your home and for hot water to flow through your pipes. With the build up of scum and scale in your pipes, you are likely to end up with a hefty plumbing bill and have endless problems with appliances such as your washing machine and dishwasher.
What are the benefits of a water softener?
A water softener will improve the flow of water in your home and will not only give you a better quality product, but they will help you save money on household cleaning products and a significant amount off your bills. How will it do this? Water softeners are designed to remove the minerals that make it hard in the first place, and replace them with a softer mineral. If you live somewhere that has hard water, you will tend to have drier skin and dull looking hair. The water will have a slight chemical taste to it and your home will take longer to heat. Appliances won’t be able to drain as efficiently and over time, their pipes will get clogged up. Having a water softener will prevent this from happening.
