There are many advantages to having soft water. Below are just a few reasons that filling your Salinas, California home with soft water will benefit you on a daily basis as well as in the long run.
A Better Bathroom
Soap scum can be a big problem in the bathroom, but having soft water can greatly reduce the occurrence of this nuisance. In fact, all of your cleaning chores in the bathroom will become easier. The bathtub and sink will not become dirty as quickly, and they will be easier to clean. The time that you save on cleaning with soft water can be put to much better use. In addition to this, soft water is much easier on hair, so it will not require as much shampoo or conditioner to keep your hair in optimum condition.
A Cleaner Kitchen
The same benefits that come to the bathroom will benefit the kitchen as well. This added cleanliness applies not only to surfaces but to dishes, which will be far less likely to be streaked or smudged. Your dishwasher will also be cleaner because of a lack of buildup, and the plumbing and appliances in your kitchen will last longer.
Your skin is exposed to water every time you wash your hands or face or take a shower. If the water is hard, it is likely that you are building up minerals on your skin, leading it to be cracked and dry. Not only is this uncomfortable and unhealthy, it can lead to razor burn, which is a very painful experience. By contrast, shaving with soft water leads the razor to glide smoothly across the skin.
Your pipes are an important part of your home, and replacing them can be quite an ordeal. You can avoid having to do this for many years by using soft water, which does not erode the pipes away like hard water does. Using soft water, your toilet, sink, shower and other plumbing will run smoothly for a much longer period of time, with no need to hire an expensive plumber.
Good for the Hot Water Heater
When you use soft water, you are ensuring a much longer life for your hot water heater. Keeping all of the sediment out of the heater will benefit the heater’s utility and keep it functional for a long time to come. It will also cut down on monthly water heating bills.
Lower Costs Overall
There are many ways in which having soft water saves money, from negating the necessity of having to make expensive repairs to plumbing and appliances to reducing the need for cleaners. From soap and shampoo to detergent and bleach, soft water makes cleaning solutions less essential. You might be surprised how quickly the expenses from these products add up.
These are just a few reasons why it is a good idea to make the extra effort to switch to soft water. With soft water in your home, just think how much time and money you’ll save and how much better off your surfaces and appliances will be!
