4 Benefits of Using a Water Softener in the Home, Scappoose, Oregon

Having hard water can be a nuisance, especially if it’s impacting your daily routine, making it more difficult to bathe or wash dishes and clothes. Crow Water Systems in Scappoose, OR, wants you to know that you don’t have to settle for hard water. Instead, you can invest in a high-quality water softener. Water softeners have a host of benefits for your home, which they’ve listed for you below. 

4 Advantages of Having a Water Softener in the Household 

1. Less Wear & Tear on Appliances 

The minerals present in hard water can do quite a number on your appliances, lessening their effectiveness and eventually eating away at their fixtures. If you have hard water and want to make your appliances last as long as possible, investing in a water softener will help prevent mineral buildup on them, as well as increase their daily effectiveness. 

2. Improved Drinking Water

Due to the high volume of minerals such as calcite, gypsum, and magnesium, hard water can often be unpleasant to drink. Water softeners are designed to filter out these excessive minerals and provide you with a cleaner-tasting, more refreshing drinking water. It can also eliminate unpleasant mineral odors that your water may have. 

3. Easier Cleaning

The minerals in hard water make soap less effective, causing the need to wash things several times. This is not only frustrating but also results in spikes in your monthly water bill. A reliable water softener can combat this issue. 

​​​​​​​4. Softer Skin & Hair 

Those with hard water may find it difficult to bathe or completely rinse away all of the soap when taking a shower or bath. The minerals present in hard water can also wind up on your skin or hair after bathing, making it feel rough and unpleasant. But water softeners combat this by reducing mineral content, giving you smoother, softer skin and hair. 

If you’re tired of battling with your home’s hard water every day, installing a water softener can change your life. To learn more, contact Crow Water Systems today at (503) 543-6326, or visit them online for a more in-depth look at their water treatment and well pump services.
