5 Benefits of Home Water Softeners, Myers Corner, New York

If the tap in your home produces hard water, a water softener is a simple solution. This water treatment system can be installed easily and will remove most of the minerals from the water, leaving it cleaner and healthier. Here's why water purification is so important.

What Can a Water Softener Do for Me?

1. Cleaner Surfaces

If you've ever accumulated stubborn water spots on your faucet, sink, dishes, windows, and other surfaces, you know how much damage hard water can do. A water softener prevents this buildup.

2. Cleaner Body

Water SoftenerWhen you wash in hard water, you'll end up with mineral buildup which can make your skin and hair look dull and unhealthy. Hard water also doesn't do as good of a job of washing away soap.

3. Cleaning Products

When you use hard water with soap, the minerals in the water bind to the cleaning agents to create soap scum, which is not effective at cleaning. You'll have to use more cleaner to get the job done, including bathing, laundry, dishes, and household cleaning — and the soap scum itself is a mess to clean up from tubs and sinks.

4. Longer Appliance Life

Without minerals constantly building up inside pipes and tanks, your household appliances will have a longer life expectancy. Replacing your dishwasher, washing machine, and the water and ice dispensers on your refrigerator can quickly become costly.

5. Lower Energy Bill

A water softener will allow you to save money on electricity. With hard water, water heaters and boilers will develop a buildup of minerals over time which will make their heating elements less effective. Soft water doesn't have this problem.
