How Water Softeners Work
Water is referred to as “hard water” when it contains a lot of minerals. Water softening is the removal of calcium, magnesium, and other anions in your water. The resulting soft water is more compatible with soap and extends the lifetime of plumbing fixtures. The water simply feels more “slippery.”
Why Consider a Water Softener
Minerals in your water are not a health threat, but they are a threat to water-related appliances, most notably your water heater. The hard water will have calcium, lime, and scum build-up over time. This will lower the efficiency of your water heater and plumbing in your home. You will also notice your water appliances need more repairs until they fail altogether. With soft water, you’ll also notice how you are using much less soap and shampoo when bathing.

Perks of Water Softeners
Your Home Stays Clean
Hard minerals can form scale and scum on your home’s fixtures. Soft water will prevent that.
Keep Yourself Cleaner
Soft water keeps hard water from leaving a film on your skin from bathing. Soap and Shampoo also rinse off more easily with soft water.
Save on Energy Costs
Without a water softener, minerals will eventually build up in your water heater. This build up will create a barrier between your heat source and the water, making your water heater run less efficiently. A water softener can save you up to 30% on your energy bills.
Use Less Detergent
Soft water will have your clothes come out brighter, while also using less detergent.
Your Dishwasher Benefits Too
Soft water cleans everything—even your dishes! With a water softener, you won’t need as much dish soap and your water will won’t leave any residue.
Protect Your Water Appliances
With less scum and scale building up, your appliances will last much longer. This pays for the cost of the water softener on its own.
