Soft water for your Pinellas or Hillsborough County home is a personal preference that yields benefits many homeowners feel are necessary. A water softener makes the hard water- soft. The softener will remove the deposits of calcium and magnesium ions and replaces them with sodium ions. During this process, the water enters a mineral tank. It is forced through a basin of resin beads charged with sodium ions. The negative charge of the resin beads replaces the positive charge of the calcium and magnesium ions.
In the end, the water is free from calcium and magnesium, leaving the water with a soft feel, or soft water. Finally, there are no health-related risks to having hard water.
Benefits of Water Softener Installation
You may want to know what good a water softener will do for you when properly installed and used. Here are some of the ways a water softener helps homeowners.
- Soft water is safer to drink as it removes trace ferrous iron, coloring surfaces and clearing the water. Also, it adds sodium to the water, helping the body’s fluid balance and aiding in sending nerve impulses.
- Protect your pipes from blockage or damage and decrease your calls to your local plumber, saving you money.
- You’ve seen it; build-up and scale on faucets, sinks, and shower doors. This white scale is ugly and can even gunk up your washer and water heaters.
- Your appliances will work efficiently for longer spans with softer water and less limescale build-up.
- Ever notice spots on your glasses right from the dishwasher? That is from the limescale, not rinsed away. Get cleaner dishes that are spot-free with a water softener.
- When the water is soft, you will use less and get even cleaner. The soft water lathers up significantly more than hard water, making it work better.
- When folks have hard water, their skin is dull because the hard water does not thoroughly rinse off soap scum and that soap left behind is drying.
- Your clothes will look brighter and last longer when the water is soft. Hard water will beat up clothing pretty fast.
Finally, a water softener reduces the time you spend washing everything, from the dishes and clothing to the family dog. Spend less time washing and more time doing what you love with a water softener.
