What Is Water Softening?
At its simplest, water softening is a type of water treatment process that specifically aims to mitigate and remove the minerals commonly associated with hard water. There are various chemical and mechanical methods to achieve this, but they all work off of the same principle of reducing the presence of magnesium, calcium, and similar sulfates and bicarbonates from your home’s water supply.
The result is what we call “soft” water, or water that is free of these scale-causing pollutants. Homeowners tend to prefer soft water, especially in areas where hard water is common like where we live. Soft water is more agreeable on the skin, requires less soap, and minimizes pipe wear caused by harmful water pollutants.
The Benefits of Water Softeners
Water softeners turn your water from hard to soft, but what are the actual advantages? Quite a few, actually! By taking advantage of water softening methods, you stand to benefit from:
- Certain health benefits. While it’s not recommended to regularly consume soft water, it does display beneficial effects when used for hygiene. Soft water is less harsh on human skin and hair, which often results in less dryness.
- Less soap used in cleaning. Soft water is excellent for home and dish cleaning, reducing or completely removing the minerals that cause “water spots” and streaks. Additionally, soft water requires less soap per wash.
- Reduced scale buildup in pipes. The primary reason many homeowners choose soft water lies in its benefits for your home’s plumbing system. Scale and mineral deposits are one of the leading causes of corrosion and wear that typically leads to needing plumbing repair.
- Boiler and water heater benefits. If your home uses a hot water boiler system, then you stand to add years of service to your unit! Both hot water heaters and water boilers benefit greatly from reduced scale, helping to maintain tank health and system efficiency.
Salt Lake City Water Softener Repair Services
As is the case with every other appliance in your home, your water softener will eventually need repairs. Though you can do your best to provide your water softener with proper maintenance, issues will likely still occur. Here are some signs to look out for if you’re wondering when you’ll need water softener repair services:
Cloudy dishes are a telltale sign that hard water is present. Water softener systems aim to remove the minerals that are responsible for cloudy dishes. If your dishes still look cloudy or not completely clean, your water softener is likely at fault. Dial our phone number, and contact us to have your water softener system inspected and, if necessary, repaired.
Hard water contains minerals that take away your skin’s natural moisture. The longer you’re exposed to these minerals, the dryer your skin will feel. Water softeners remove these minerals from your home’s water supply, helping your skin stay as moist as it’s supposed to. Help your skin stay strong and comfortable by having your water softener inspected and repaired by a team of plumbing professionals.
