You have probably read a lot about water softeners, both here and other places online. Perhaps you’ve been on the fence as to whether you need one for your home. If it’s time to make a decision, these three questions should make it easier to do so.
1. How does my laundry look? Water hardness interferes with soap and detergents. Result? Water that doesn’t get ‘sudsy’ enough to clean, a fabric-damaging film on clothes, and unsightly surface scum left behind in your washer.
2. Is there a white, chalky substance on my faucets and shower walls?
That’s mostly lime scale, a material made of calcium carbonate. You can wipe it off easily but it will keep coming back as long as you use your sinks and shower. It’s one of the most obvious signs of hard water.
3. Has the water pressure dropped?
Once again, the culprit is lime scale. It accumulates on the inside of your pipes when they are exposed to hard water, and those deposits will continue to build up until they begin restricting the flow of water.
If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, you have hard water issues that would likely be alleviated by a water softener. It will not only make your water taste better and keep your faucets looking cleaner, it will help you avoid some of the more serious issues associated with hard water, including damage to your pipes.
