Why do I need a water softener?
Mineral-rich water can cause many problems, such as dissolved minerals such as calcium in hard water form scales that build up or accumulate on the insides of water and drainage pipes, coffee makers, tea kettles, and water heaters. Scales that buildup lessens the flow of water along the lines and may eventually cause pipes to become clogged. Scales are also very poor heat conductors and may increase your power bill and even damage your water heater. Hard water also reacts with soaps and detergents to form a yellowish or brownish scum that is difficult to remove from household appliances and fixtures such as dishwashers, washing machines, sinks, and bathtubs.
Water naturally has a variety of minerals, such as calcium and magnesium. Whether a water supply is considered “hard” or “soft” depends on how much of these minerals are in your water. Soft water contains lower levels of calcium and magnesium than hard water.
