If you have hard water, you should seriously consider installing a water softener. Without one, mineral buildup can create plumbing issues, reduce the lifespan of your appliances and increase your home energy costs.
So, how do you know if you have hard water? Here are the telltale signs that you could benefit from water softener installation.
Take a look at your faucets, fixtures and showerheads. If you see limescale or mineral deposits, you probably have hard water. The same is true if you notice rust-colored stains in your sinks or toilets, and in either case, the solution lies in a softening system.
If your dishwasher isn’t getting your dishes as clean as it used to – or if your washing machine seems to be leaving a residue on your clothing — hard water is the likely culprit. Install a softening system, and you can have cleaner dishes and clothes.
Itchy Dry Skin
If anyone in your household has noticed their skin getting dry and itchy, you could be in need of a water softener. Bathing or showering in hard water can cause skin irritation, particularly in those with eczema and other skin issues.
Dull or Dingy Hair
Using water that contains a high mineral content to wash and condition your hair makes thoroughly rinsing away the products quite difficult. And when residue is left behind, the result is limp, dull-looking hair.
Higher Energy Bills
As your appliances become less efficient and your pipes have to work harder, your water bills rise. If you’ve noticed that your monthly bill is rising, installing a water softener can help bring your costs down. And if you get yours from Kinetico, you’ll see even greater energy savings, as our softening systems don’t use electricity.
