Here in the Twin Cities, it’s not uncommon for homes to have hard water. Hard water is full of dissolved minerals like chalk, lime, calcium and even magnesium. But while these minerals are safe to ingest, they can impact the overall water quality of your home.
How does hard water affect your water quality?
The minerals found in had water can get left behind in your pipes and on your appliances. Not only is this bad for your plumbing system, but it can affect the overall quality of your water, too! Since hard water is full of minerals, it can also be harder to lather up soap — this means that it’s harder to wash dishes, shampoo your hair, and do your laundry.
It’s important that you have clean, high quality water in your home — but how can you improve your tap water? Fortunately, you can improve your homes water quality with a water softener!
Benefits of Water Softeners:
- Brighter Clothes
- Spot-Free Dishes
- Healthier Skin
- Appliances last longer
- Fewer Water Spots in Your Shower
- Softer Laundry
Water softeners work by taking out the minerals in your tap water. As a result, you’re left with softer water that is easier on your appliances, plumbing system, dishes, and hair. Your glasses will sparkle more, your washing machine won’t work as hard and you might even find that your energy bills are lower.
