Does Your Home Need a Water Softener?

Oct 23, 2023


If you’re living with it, and millions of households in the United States are, you probably already know the signs of hard water. Water stains on glassware and fixtures, dull hair and dry skin, appliances that need to be prematurely replaced – these are just a FEW of the symptoms of hard water! If you’re dealing with this and more, then your home may need a water softener, and you’ll wonder why you waited so long to get one.

What is hard water?

Hard water is water that has high mineral content. Groundwater absorbs this mineral content from rocks and soil.  The most common hard water minerals are calcium and magnesium – they make soap less effective, but they also create a limescale buildup.

Is hard water dangerous?

No, hard water doesn’t pose any health risks, but it significantly affects day-to-day life in your household. Dishes look like they were never cleaned due to a dotted haze left behind. Clothes that were just laundered feel like sandpaper. And, your shower or sink fixtures may have a white, chalky film on them.

Maybe worse is the limescale buildup we were just referring to. When it occurs within your pipes, it reduces water pressure and water flow, negatively impacting the efficiency and lifespan of any water-using appliances. Your energy bills go up and so do your appliance repair bills or appliance replacement costs!

Your home might need a water softener if:

Your clothing easily fades.

You notice dry hair and skin – and those with conditions like psoriasis or eczema will see an increase in outbreaks.

Your sinks and bathtubs are stained.

You notice a rise in your water bills.

You buy more soaps and detergents just to get your body, hair or clothing to feel or look clean.
