Are Water Softeners Necessary?

Chris Knippa of Kinetico Water Softeners San Antonio specializes in installing whole house water softeners across the USA. When you live in South-Central Pennsylvania, it’s not uncommon to come across a few common home water issues. Luxuries such as spot free glassware or soft skin are things that are virtually impossible to have unless you have a home water softener in place. But why else should you consider having a luxury water system installed in your home? Take a look at the four best reasons water softeners are well worth the investment! Invest in a water softener 1) Protect appliances When you install a water softener in your home, it’s important to realize just how much you’ve done to extend the life of your machines. Hard water decreases the efficiency and lifespan of water-using appliances. By investing in a water softener, you eliminate the worry of mineral buildup and ensure you’re getting soft water going through all of your machines. 2) Protect plumbing and fixtures Shower heads and faucets, especially low-flow faucets and shower heads, actually get clogged with mineral buildup. However, when you invest in a water softener you not only eliminate increase at the source of the issue, you eliminate buildup on any surfaces around your house that come into contact with that water. 3) Removes iron Iron in South-Central Pennsylvania is easily one of the most unsavory minerals to run into, and that’s putting it politely. With iron comes permanent staining in whites and light laundry, foul distaste and even an aroma that smells similar to that of rotten eggs. Not only this, but it can also clog up plumbing, fixtures and anything else that comes into contact with your water. By investing in a water softener, you’re doing yourself a favor by removing iron from your household water. 4) Spot free glassware Did you know that spot free glassware isn’t the work of fairies but derived from soft water? By installing a water softener into your home, you’ll get to enjoy the luxury of spot free glassware, cooking ware, and utensils. In Conclusion If you’re considering a whole house water system for your home, take a leap of faith and do it! The benefits far outweigh any negatives, and you’ll enjoy a cleaner, more luxurious household for many years to come.
