What Are the Benefits of a Water Softener?

If you experience problems like soap scum buildup, difficulty lathering soap, mineral deposits on fixtures, or dry skin and hair, you most likely have hard water—water with a high mineral content. While not necessarily unhealthy, hard water can have many harmful effects. Luckily, the right water softener can help you soften hard water and make all the difference.

Rooter Man Plumbing provides professional water softener installation services for both homeowners and businesses. If you’re looking for a trusted plumbing service that can help you test your water and install an efficient water softener or filter, look no further than Rooter Man Plumbing. In this post, we’ll talk about the benefits of installing a water softener.

  • Protect Your Plumbing System

Water that contains a high amount of minerals will leave limescale in your plumbing pipes. Scale buildup in pipes can lead to leaks, pipe corrosion, contaminated water, and reduced water pressure. Having a professional plumber install a water softener at the point of entry helps get rid of minerals present in the water before it enters your plumbing system. Just by switching to soft water, you can prolong the lifespan of your pipes and the other components of your plumbing system. A professional plumbing repair service can help you choose the right water softener for your home.

  • Cleaner Dishes

It can be difficult to keep your dishes clean if you have hard water in your home. No matter how much you rinse them, they will appear cloudy rather than shiny. A water softener removes the minerals that cause these problems, resulting in cleaner dishes.

  • Save Money On Cleaning Products

You may need to use more soap and detergent to clean dishes, clothes, and surfaces in hard water. This is not the case with softened water. Soft water can help you save money on cleaning products by allowing them to work more effectively.

  • Healthy And Better Tasting Water

While not technically removing harmful contaminants, soft water can taste better than hard water due to the absence of minerals. This is a subjective preference, but many people find soft water more palatable.

  • Improve The Efficiency Of Your Water Heater

Hard water doesn’t just affect your pipes. It also reduces the efficiency of your water heater by leaving scum and scale deposits that cause heat efficiency loss. These deposits can reduce a water heater’s efficiency by as much as 50%. A water softener can help prevent this buildup and improve the efficiency of your water heater.

  • Streak-Free Car Washes

There’s no car owner who loves the chalky residue that hard water leaves on the car after washing. The residue is not only unsightly, but it can also damage the paintwork. Soft water rinses away more cleanly, leaving your car sparkling without streaks.

  • Cleaner, Healthier Skin And Hair

Soft water will do wonders for your skin and hair. Water that is highly mineralized will dry out your skin and hair. Your skin will often become itchy and irritated, while your hair will begin to feel rough and tangled. Soft water can help improve the condition of your skin and hair by leaving them feeling softer and smoother.

  • Brighter And Softer Clothes

Soft water can be extremely beneficial for your clothes as well. If you have hard water in your home, you may have noticed that your colored clothes start to fade after a short while and the whites become dingy over time. Conversely, soft water can help your clothes look brighter and feel softer. It is all thanks to soft water’s ability to thoroughly dissolve detergents. If you’ve been struggling with stiff and dull-looking clothes, call a nearby plumbing repair service to test your water and install a water softener.

  • Less Time Cleaning

A water softener not only makes cleaning easier, but it also saves you time. You won’t have to spend hours rewashing dishes and clothes or scrubbing soap scum off sinks, faucets, and shower walls.

If you’re looking for a reliable plumber to install a water softener or a water filtration system in your home, call Rooter Man Plumbing.
