So you’ve concluded that you’re suffering from hard water in your home. This can come as quite a relief. Sometimes it’s hard for homeowners to pinpoint the problem that they’re having because the symptoms of hard water can seem so unrelated. Once you figure out that the source of your plumbing problems is hard water, the next step is forming a plan of action.
If you want better home comfort and water quality it’s time for you to consider a water softener. Water softeners are one of those realms of a plumbing system that might not be so familiar to you as a homeowner. We’re not expecting you to be an expert on a topic this niche. You can rely on the expertise of the professionals on our team to help you through the process.
What’s a Water Softener?
A water softener is a system that’s designed to soften hard water in your home by replacing the “hard” minerals like calcium and magnesium with another substance. The substance that’s used most often is sodium. Water softeners have two tanks (a mineral tank and a brine tank) that filter your home’s water through resin bead in that attract the “hard” chemicals.
The resin beads remove the hard chemicals thereby softening the water and leaving you with a better plumbing experience. Water softeners will add a small amount of sodium to your water supply, but the exchange is well worth it to help out your plumbing system and boost your home comfort.
How One of These Systems Helps Your Home
So how will a water softener really benefit your home specifically?
- It Helps Your Plumbing System: Are you suffering from low water pressure or constant clogging when it comes to your home plumbing system. It’s easy to become defeated and think that you just have a little bad luck. In actuality, it might be the hard water in your home’s plumbing system caking up in your home’s plumbing pipes and causing issues. Make sure that you consider a water softener if you have these issues.
- It Improves Your Comfort: Do you ever get out of the shower and feel like your skin is tight and dry? Does your hair dry like straw? Do your nails feel brittle?
