Benefits Of Water Softeners

More often than not, the water, which is directly supplied by your city, or municipality, is hard water, due to the presence of an excessive amount of metals and minerals. Although it is safe and potable, it still poses danger to your health. To counteract the effect on hard water, you need to use a water softening unit. If you’re in California, at All Star Plumbing we are experienced and licensed plumbers and we can discuss water softener system costs.

What does a water softener do?

It is essential for you to know some fundamental facts about water softeners. In its simplest definition, water softeners are units of instruments used to soften water by eliminating excessive amounts of minerals (like calcium and magnesium) that make natural water hard. The technique used in removing minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and iron is called water softening. Since hard water poses significant danger to your health, it is essential for you to use water softeners.

These days, more and more households are already adapting the technique of softening their water. The number one reason why you should soften your water is that the water hardness level in your household is reduced; thus preventing the negative effects of hard water, like buildup of lime deposits inside your pipeline, which often cause clogging. Laundry machines are often damaged due to lime buildup, not to mention the health hazards associated with hard water.

Water Softeners Extend the Life of Your Pipes

With the use of water softeners, you can extend the life expectancy of your pipes, household appliances, and other units, which are dependent on water. In addition, unsafe elements from tap water that cause skin irritation and itchiness will be removed. Another thing which entices people to use it is its easy installation procedure.

Water softeners are also beneficial to fabrics and laundry, because it decreases the amount of laundry detergent needed to wash your clothes. Thus, you won’t find soapy residue or spots on your clothes; instead, it will make your clothes smooth and soft. Moreover, your hair as well as your skin benefit, since soft water makes your hair smooth and shiny, as does your skin, because soap residues are reduced. In addition, you can save energy since soft water heats up faster than hard water does. It also boosts up the efficiency of your heating unit; thus, it only uses less power supply and energy. As a result, you can save time as well as money due to the decreased electric consumption.

Different types of water softener systems

When it comes to water softener systems, you have a range of choices.

  • Ion Exchanger. An ion exchanger is the most commonly installed water softener system, because of its low cost and availability in stores. Water flows into the ion exchanger unit where sodium replaces the minerals. This option requires long-term upkeep, and isn’t the best choice if you require a low-sodium diet.
  • Magnetic Water Softener. A magnetic water softening system costs less than most softening units, but may not clear out minerals as much as you would like.
  • Salt-Free Water Softener. A salt-free water softener, while more expensive to install than other options, requires little lifetime maintenance, causes less wear on hot water heaters and does a better job of keeping minerals out of your tap water.
  • Water Distilling Unit. A water distilling works best for homes that collect well water instead of groundwater. With this type of unit, pure water flows into your home, softening the water through filtration. The upfront installation can be expensive and the distillation process takes longer than other systems.
  • Reverse Osmosis Water Softening System. A reverse osmosis water softening system is perfect if you want to filter out minerals and chemicals at a decent price. This water softening system also takes up the least amount of space and provides water that tastes great to drink, while improving other household water uses.
