Hard Water Can Wreak Havoc On Your Home
Here in Oklahoma, it’s not uncommon to have “hard” water, which is water that has a high concentration of dissolved minerals. While hard water isn’t unsafe to use or drink, it can cause numerous issues within your home or business. First of all, hard water causes faster scale buildups on your plumbing and appliances. This can mean shorter system lifespans and increased need for repairs.
Hard water also makes it hard to get your laundry clean, requiring more detergent to do the job. The same is true for your own hygiene as well. And when it comes to the taste of water (depending on the minerals you have), hard water often is not something you want to drink. Not sure if you have hard water? Most hard water test kits only cost about $20.
Improve Your Water Quality With a Water Softener
The solution to your hard water woes: water softeners. How do water softeners works? As the water passes through the water softener, a very small amount sodium is added to the water, causing a chemical reaction with the minerals. This happens in a tank filled with resin beads, which trap the minerals during the chemical reaction. Through this simple process, the water comes out the other side almost completely free of dissolved minerals.
Benefits of Using a Water Softener:
- Reduce limescale buildups
- Increased lifespan of plumbing fixtures and systems
- Improved functionality of appliances
- Better washing machine performance
- Improved skin and hair care
