The 3 Benefits of a Water Softener

With vast experience providing water treatment services in Gilbert, AZ, Gold Star Plumbing & Drain has helped plenty of households enjoy the benefits of soft water. To get a clearer picture of how water softeners can be beneficial, we offer three reasons why you should consider using soft water at home.

1. Healthy-Looking Hair and Skin

A high-performance water filtration system produces soft water that has a lower mineral content than hard water. This means when you bathe or shower with soft water, your skin will not be dried out. This is because soft water does not contain minerals that normally remove the natural oils in the skin, thereby, making it dry out. The minerals present in hard water can also make the hair feel brittle, frizzy, and dry.

A water softener can also be good for your skin, especially your face, because it can prevent breakouts brought on by minerals that can irritate the skin.

2. Gentler on Your Plumbing

Another reason you should have a professional plumber install a water purification system in your home is that you will be able to save more than a few bucks in the long run. Soft water does not have mineral ions that often lead to buildup in appliances and pipes. Mineral buildup can also increase the amount of energy required to keep water hot or cold, taking a toll on your appliances and plumbing, thus affecting system efficiency.

3. Dishes Come Out Cleaner

It can be a challenge to keep your dishes sparkling clean if you have no proper means of water purification such as a reverse osmosis system to soften hard water. You will find yourself having to use plenty of detergents or soaps to at least reduce the cloudy appearance that seems to appear on silverware and glass as soon as they start to dry. Soft water completely fuses with detergents and soaps. This, in turn, leads to the production of more lather, which ensures quick and easy cleaning of dishes.
