How Does Hard Water Damage My Home?
Hard water causes damage. As your water flows through pipes underground, it’s not uncommon for the water to pick up minerals along the way. These minerals are not completely filtered out of your water before it gets into your home. This means you’re showering in water filled with minerals such as calcium and magnesium. The same minerals can be abrasive on hair and certain skin types. They are also tough on your pipes. They cause buildup that can slow the flow of your water and on your faucets and showerheads that can also be visually unsightly.
Hard water leaves residue on your dishes, and it can cause major soap scum, discoloration, and even stains on your glass shower floors and your sink. It can also make it hard for you to shower because hard water stops soap from lathering properly. Imagine washing your hands after picking up after the dog on a walk only to realize your soap won’t lather because the water is so hard. Furthermore, your poor water quality affects every dish and appliance you own. When you pour hard water into your coffee pot, you’re causing significant excess damage to the pot and the parts inside your coffee maker that might not allow the machine to last as long as you’d like. You’re also drinking this water if you drink unfiltered water from your fridge or your sink.
Your hard water might not seem like that big of a deal if you don’t notice it right away, but what happens the first time it causes your washing machine to act up? Or what happens when you realize your clothes are becoming discolored in the wash? Hard water affects every aspect of your life, even if it takes you a while to notice the results. Hard water comes in many levels, which means some people suffer more than others. The good news, however, is that no one needs to suffer from any level of hard water with the advancements in whole house water softener technology.
How Does a Water Softener Work?
The Kinetico line of water softeners work in one major way. They improve your overall quality of life by improving the overall quality of your water. Their whole house water softener systems work simply and efficiently. Every system has what is called a resin bed. The magnesium and the calcium built up found naturally in hard water goes through this resin bed and processes out the things you don’t want. The filtration process involves an exchange process in which only the water that’s soft and beneficial is filtered into your home. The resin bed fills with all the hard water deposits, and salt is used to periodically clean it out.
Is Soft Water Better for Me and My Home?
If you’re living with exceptionally hard water, you aren’t asking this question. This is a question that people ask when their water is hard, but not excessively so. If you have very hard water, you know that it’s bad for everything in your home, and you know the cost of a water softener is a small price to pay for your own benefit.
