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 are 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 System for Home Work?

We install water softener systems for homes in Franklin and the surrounding areas that can 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 system for 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. The benefits will prove the worth of having a hard water treatment installed by Franklin’s expert plumbers at Earl Gray & Sons.
