Hard water can stain clothes, sinks, and counters, and it can literally leave a foul taste in your mouth. At Earl Gray and Sons Plumbing, we have the water softeners to tackle this issue.
How to Tell If You Have Hard Water
The best way to know if you have hard water is by taking a look at your belongings that routinely come in contact with that water. With hard water, you will notice stains, damage, and fogginess on your dishes, glasses, and cutlery. Even more damaging than this is the mineral scales that hard water leaves behind. Mineral scales, or deposits, routinely form on kitchen appliances, plumbing systems, and boilers, making appliances inefficient and clogging plumbing systems. Not only that, but clothing washed in hard water also becomes dull, faded, and even feels scratchy over time.
How Does a Water Softener Work?
Water softeners remove the ions in minerals that make water hard. This process, called ion exchange, removes the negative effects of hard water. In this process, minerals, including calcium, manganese, magnesium, and iron, are attracted to a sodium-lined resin bed. This attraction pulls them out of the water supply and softens the water.
Water Softener Benefits
Using a water softener in your home will result in a variety of benefits. Less scale buildup in appliances will improve energy efficiency and longer appliance life, preventing corrosion in these machines. Also, water softeners will result in cleaner dishes, brighter clothes, and even softer hair and skin.
