What is Hard Water and What Are The Benefits of Water Softeners?

Do you ever notice spots on your dishes after they’re cleaned or see mineral buildup on your showerhead? If so, your home most likely has hard water. Although hard water is safe enough to drink and shower in, it contains minerals like calcium and magnesium that can become very annoying over time. Some common signs of hard water include clothes that feel rough after a laundry cycle, scale buildup on your faucets, and dry, dull hair.

If you experience these issues in your home, it might be time to consider installing a water softener! Keep reading to find out all of the benefits of having a water softener system in your home.

Less Spots on Dishes and Fixtures

It can be one of the most aggravating things to still see spots or stains on your dishes after running the dishwasher, right? These unsightly spots are caused by the hard minerals in your water. You probably notice stains or a ring of soap scum in your shower and bathtub as well. Since soap is difficult to wash away with hard water, the residue will remain after running your water, leaving that annoying ring of soap scum in your bathtub or shower.

Softer, Cleaner Clothes

If you have hard water in your home, it can make your clothes feel rough and look dull after doing your laundry. You might even be convinced that your clothes are still dirty and your laundry detergent isn’t working. Believe it or not, it’s not your laundry detergent. This is what hard water does to clothes. Soft water will eliminate the mineral buildup and that dull look, bringing your clothes back to life.

Healthier Skin and Hair

Hard water unfortunately makes your skin and hair very dry. Even after all of the time you devote to hair and face masks each week, it’s probably very frustrating you aren’t getting the results you want. Soft water isn’t as harsh, meaning your hair and skin won’t feel dry and brittle after each shower or washing your face.
