Top 4 Benefits of Soft Water

You’ve probably heard a thing or two about how wonderful water softeners can be, but maybe you’re not sure if they’re really worth the investment. Before choosing to make that investment, you need to understand what they are. To put it simply, water softeners remove calcium and magnesium minerals from water. These minerals make your water “hard.”

This softening process has a variety of benefits, including the potential of improving your health and increasing the lifespan of your home appliances—and that’s just for starters! Here are the top four benefits of home water softening systems.

1. Clean, Soft, and Hydrated Skin

Soft water keeps your skin cleaner, softer, and more hydrated—this is especially important here in Utah where the exceptionally dry climate can cause skin irritation and even lead to an increased risk of certain illnesses.

2. It Keeps Plumbing in Better Condition

Soft water keeps your plumbing system in better condition. All the minerals in hard water can build up in your pipes, which will eventually limit the flow of your water and necessitate expensive cleaning or replacement.

3. A Decrease in Monthly Utility Bills

Soft water decreases your monthly utility bills. When you switch over to soft water, you’ll quickly find that you need less water to get clean when you shower—which means your water and energy bills should decrease. You’ll also end up using less soap when you bathe and do your laundry. Although getting a water softener can be an expense, many find that the softener pays for itself within only a few years due to all of the money they are able to save on their bills.

4. Cleaner Dishes and Laundry

Your laundry and dishes will get cleaner—say goodbye to hard water spots on your glasses. The process of cleaning your clothes and dishes will also go more quickly.When it comes to your clothes, their color won’t fade and their material will not diminish in quality so fast. Soft water should also help your washer and dishwasher to last much longer.
