Water filtration is a great way to ensure you have clean, refreshing, and delicious water at your tap whenever you turn on the faucet. However, more than this, it keeps your skin feeling fantastic after a shower and helps prevent any funky odors from coming out of the washing machine. But maybe you don’t have all of these problems just yet. Why should you consider a water softener system in your home? Here are just a few of the reasons why you need to take advantage of such a water softener system installation inside of your home today.
Before looking at the improved taste of the water, it is important to point out the kind of money you will save when installing an efficient water softener system in your home. If you have hard water it means you have minerals running through your plumbing. This also means you have minerals running through your appliances, such as the washing machine, the dish washer, hot water heater, and so on. Over time, the minerals will build up on the interior of your appliance, which will reduce the water flow and eventually corrode your appliance.
The corrosion of your appliances will eventually require you to either contact a plumber for repairs or you’ll need to replace the corroded appliance all together. All of this adds up to thousands of dollars you would not need to spend if you simply removed the minerals from the water. By taking advantage of a water softener system you will extend the life of all your water-based appliances and, in the end, save a considerable amount of money along the way.
Better Feeling Skin
When showering with hard water your skin will feel dry. This can leave you with itchy, flaky skin, which is not only uncomfortable but it can make you self conscious. If you already suffer from a dry scalp it will increase the chance of suffering from dandruff, and your hair will be stripped of important vitamins and oils because of the minerals found in your hard water.
By switching to a water softener system you’ll be amazed as to just how much better you feel when you step out of the shower. You won’t have the dry skin feeling and you may even save money on lotion as you won’t need to purchase as much moisturizing lotion with the improved water. You’ll also look better as well. Your hair will have more body to it and it won’t be weighed down.
While you can purchase a shower filter, which works in a similar way to a tap filter that clips onto the your kitchen sink, shower filters last a very short amount of time (due to the amount of water flowing through the shower). So if you have more than one person living in the house, if you enjoy longer showers, or if you need to take a shower more than once a day, the manually installed filters will end up being more expensive. Instead, you need to have a water softener system installed.
Better Tasting Food
If you love your time in the kitchen you fully understand the importance of controlling all your ingredients. You purchase unsalted butter so you can control the amount of salt you add. You have exact measuring cups so you know what you’re putting into a recipe. You buy specific ingredients because you like how one brand tastes over the next. However, it can all be for not with inferior water.
First, if you have hard water you’ll have more minerals in the water, which can not only affect the taste of what you’re cooking, but it can also affect the cooking time. The boiling point for water with more minerals in it is different from the boiling point of pure water.
Secondly, if you have water that is hard it can affect your dishes. If you’ve spent hours cooking something special do you really want to risk serving it on a plate that smells odd? There are so many reasons why you need to avoid this kind of a problem when cooking in the kitchen. The very best way to do this is to control the kind of water you use. Using a water softener system will allow you to do this.
When you pull out dishes from your dishwasher does it look newer than the day you bought it, or do the glasses look cloudy and does the silverware look foggy? If so, it means you have hard water and you didn’t actually remove all the minerals from the dishes. This happens because the water being used is hard, and as it dries it will stick to the dishes. It can be pretty frustrating to clean dishes only to pull the dishes out and have them looking dirtier than when you put the objects into the dishwasher. While there are some cleaning solutions that can help with this it is far better to correct the problem at the source. With the help of a water softener system you don’t have this kind of problem any longer.
Improve Your Plumbing
When you run hard water through your appliances the minerals will collect inside the appliances, causing everything to break down faster. Beyond this though, the minerals will collect inside of the plumbing as well. Over time the mineral collection will reduce the water flow, which affects the water pressure of your home. If you notice the shower over time doesn’t have the same pressure it is because of the mineral build up occurring inside of the plumbing. It can also begin to eat away at the plumbing, which will lead you to needing a plumber’s assistance to fix the issues. You can reduce your reliance on a local plumber (and put money back in your pocket) by using a water softener.
