With hard water, you’ll end up with stiff clothes that aren’t as clean, forcing you to use more detergent and fabric softener.
Since detergents lather more easily with softened water, washing your clothes using softened water can cut your soap use in half.
And your clothes will be softer. Just as hard water makes skin dry and flaky, it can make clothes dry and scratchy. That’s because soft water is devoid of the minerals that cause this issue.
Energy Bills Are Lower
Water softeners reduce energy consumption by improving your water heater’s exchange efficiency and decreasing the amount of warm water you use to clean your clothes, your dishes, and yourself.
There Are Fewer Stains On Household Items
The minerals in hard water produce stains on household items such as clothes, cutlery, cups, sinks, and appliances. But softened water has fewer sediments that lead to staining and buildup—which means less cleaning time for you.
You Have Healthier Skin and Hair
Hard water dries out your skin and hair and also forms a layer of film all over your body. After installing a water softener, you’ll notice that it’s much easier to moisturize and maintain your skin.
You’ll Use Much Less Water
You need a lot of hard water when you’re cleaning, thanks to the fact that soaps and hard water don’t form readily. You might be surprised about how much less water you need after you install a water softener.
