Hard water can take a toll on your plumbing, your appliances, and even your skin. Here in Minnesota, this is a common problem! Fortunately, there are ways to improve the quality of the water in your home — with a water softener. Keep an eye out for these tell-tale signs that you need a water softener installed in your home.
Signs You Need a Water Softener:
There Are Mineral Deposits on Your Appliances
Hard water is full of minerals like calcium and magnesium. As a result, when the water on your coffee pots, in your dishwasher and on your shower doors dries, the minerals are left behind in the form of “scale” or “limescale.” This hard, chalky substance can build up in your plumbing pipes and make it more difficult to clean your appliances.
Your Skin Feels Dry
Does your skin feel itchy and dry? It might not be the weather. Many people don’t realize that minerals can dry out and irritate your skin. Softer water also means softer skin.
Your Clothes Fade Quickly
Hard water can cause your clothes to fade more quickly. They may feel scratchy or even hard to wash! While there are water softening detergents on the market, a whole house water softener can help eliminate the problem once and for all.
You Always Find Yourself Calling the Plumber
Limescale can build up inside of your plumbing drains, leaving you with a frustrating, slow draining sink. If you find yourself constantly calling the plumber for drain cleaning services, you should look into installing a water softener as a one time fix.
