Is Your Water Hard, And Why You Should Care

Do your clothes generally look dull despite using a decent detergent? Do you have limescale stains in your kitchen and bathroom? Do your appliances break down because of limescale deposits? Does your skin feel drier or itch more than it used to? Does the colouring in your hair fade faster? If you answered yes to most of these questions, the problem might be your water. About hard water.

Why you need to install a water softener if you live in a hard water area:

The water supplied to your home contains levels of magnesium, calcium, and other essential minerals. Although they are not particularly dangerous, high levels present in your water can affect your skin, hair, clothes, linen, plumbing, and appliances in the long run. The limecale deposits accumulate in water pipes clogging them with time. Limescale buildup destroys the heating elements in boilers, dishwashers and washing mashines and other appliances which come in contact with water.

This is why more homeowners are installing water softeners typically in regions where water contains high mineral content. Water softening systems lower the content of minerals in water to levels where they will not cause further damage to your home and belongings. This is done using a process that filters out excess minerals and flushes them out of the system.

With help from a professional, you can have a water softening system that fits your home's design and water requirements. While some prefer to install only a water softener, others prefer to add a drinking water filter and a tap, for a continuous supply of filtered drinking water in the kitchen.

Either way, you will have more control over the quality of your water. Generally, softened water feels and smells better. It is gentler on the skin, which is ideal for those with mild to moderate skin conditions. Anything you wash with soft water will likely be cleaner, including your dishes, clothes, and hair.

The more carefully you chose your water softener, the more benefits you stand to enjoy. Professionals can help you work with your plumbing to help preserve the conditions of pipes, as well as other appliances in your home that come in constant contact with water.
