Hard water refers to water that contains some natural minerals and certain metals in excess. These minerals include magnesium, calcium, manganese, iron, and carbonates. Home water softener systems are household devices that employ different processes to solve the water hardness problem, either by removing or neutralizing the minerals that cause the hardness.
Benefits of using water softeners
Hard water is not necessarily harmful to your health, but it can cost you in many other ways. If you soften your water before using it in your home, you can reap the following benefits: You can reduce the scaling that occurs in your pipes, water heaters, and plumbing systems.
When hard water is heated, the minerals dissolved in the water tend to crystallize and form deposits in your pipes and other plumbing fixtures. The deposits tend to accumulate over time, and they form cakes on the inside of your water heater, thus shortening its lifespan. If you soften your water, your pipes and water heater will last longer, and your water heater will be more energy efficient.
The minerals in hard water tend to neutralize soaps and detergents, so you need to use more soap if you are doing your laundry with hard water. With soft water, you only need half the detergent to produce the same amount of lather.
Hard water also tends to leave residual deposits on your laundry, which can discolor or ruin the fabric. Hard water can also deposit scum in your washing machine and damage it. Soft water is your best choice if you want bright and durable laundry without having to spend too much on detergent.
When showering or taking baths, hard water will make you spend more on shampoo, body wash, hair conditioner and soap because you have to use more of it. People who use hard water are more likely to have dermatological problems. The minerals in hard water can react with soap and form deposits on the skin, and this may results in rashes, clogging of the pores, and other skin issues. Softening your bath or shower water can save you from developing skin complication.
