Is a Water Treatment System Right for Me?

You and your family depend on the water that flows into your home. Whether it's city water or coming from a well outside, that water is what you drink, cook with, clean with, and bathe in. Hard water makes all those tasks more difficult. If your water is not what it should be, a water treatment system can help. Is such a system a good fit for you and your family?

The Many Benefits of Using a Water Treatment System

Here are a few of the many benefits you would get if you had a water treatment system installed by Before & After Plumbing and Drain.

- Softer skin - Hard water makes it difficult to wash away soap residue. That residue can make your skin feel dry and scratchy. With a water softener installed, your skin will be smoother and softer.

- Clean, shiny hair - Soap residue can leave your hair looking dull and feeling sticky. When the water softens, the soap washes the dirt away and leaves no residue. That leaves your hair cleaner, smoother, and shinier.

- Cleaning becomes easier - Hard water does not mix well with household cleansers. This makes everyday cleaning difficult and time-consuming. After installing a water softener, cleaning will become much easier. You will be able to clean more in less time.

- Use less soap, cleansers, and shampoo - Without all the soap residue and hard water to contend with, you will need less product to do the same job. That means buying less soap, household cleaners, and shampoo, which means lowering your household budget.

- Softer clothes - Hard water makes it difficult to remove soap residue from fabrics, as well as skin, hair, and household surfaces. When you start washing clothes in softer water, the soap gets cleared away, leaving the fabric softer to the touch.

- Fabrics last longer - When soap gets left, it can wear down fabric fibers. That means you will need to replace your clothes and towels more often. With softer water and no soap residue, the fabric is going to last longer, lowering your replacement costs.

- Longer appliance life - Water-using appliances, like dishwashers, clothes washers, coffee makers, and water heaters get mineral build-up in the presence of hard water. That build-up can shorten the usable life of the appliance. When you have softer water, there are no minerals present so no build-up, which means a longer appliance life.

- Lower energy costs - Energy savings come from many directions after you install a water softening system. You need to use less water when cleaning or bathing, which means less hot water and lower energy costs. You don't need to do wash as often which means less washer and dryer energy used.

- Less environmental impact - This is one of the lesser known benefits of having a water softening system in your home. When you use less water, less cleaning products, and less energy, your impact on the environment goes down.

These benefits show why a water treatment system is right for you and your household. If you are interested in learning more about such a system and how it would benefit your family, call Before & After Plumbing and Drain today.
