It is estimated that 85 percent of homes are using untreated hard water. Hard water is any type of water that contains excess metals and materials, such as magnesium and calcium. Even though hard water is safe to use in most cases, you may want to consider having a water softener installed. A water softener is a device that helps remove excess minerals from the water, giving you a cleaner supply.
Your home's water quality depends on several factors. Minerals make their way into your home's water by dissolving from things such as rocks or metals. They travel from the source of water to your home. These minerals found in the water are what contribute to water hardness. A water softener is responsible for softening your home's water by removing minerals from inside through a process known as ion-exchange, leaving you with soft water.
Water softeners leave you with a number of great benefits, including the following:
Less time spent cleaning
Brighter and softer clothes
Prevent damage to your plumbing and appliances
