What Is a Water Softener?
At Kinetico Quality Water, we are committed to helping you find the right product to ensure your home has the best water quality. We have a wide selection of Tucson water softeners and products that are independently certified to help ensure you are getting the right system. Water softeners can be a crucial part of any home in the Tucson area because they help to protect your pipes, fixtures, and appliances from the dangers and corrosive compounds found in hard water.
What Is a Water Softener?
The simple answer is water softeners are machines that soften the water in your home by removing minerals from the water supply. But water softeners are part of a more complex answer. Understanding them requires a comprehensive understanding of why you need to soften your water in the first place. In some areas of Tucson, water is loaded with significant levels of calcium and magnesium, which both make water harder than it should be. Hard water clogs pipes and makes it more difficult for soap and detergent to dissolve. Water softeners are vital to solving that problem.
What Are the Benefits of Installing a Water Softener?
Before we get into the benefits of installing a water softener, you need to recognize the signs of hard water. Do watermarks form on your faucets and stay there even after cleaning them? This is a telltale sign of hard water. Have you ever wondered what that chalky substance that lines your sinks and shower wall is? It’s the result of hard water. Weird-tasting and foul-smelling water are two more signs of hard water. For some, it’s itchy skin and hair after showering that finally convinces them to look into a water softener.
So, what are the benefits of purchasing a water softener from Kinetico Quality Water and having our skilled technicians install it?
- Water softeners make your plumbing system and water-based appliances more efficient, which leads to lower gas, water, and electric bills. You’ll even save on soaps and cleaning products, as hard water forces you to use more of them.
- Your hair will be cleaner and softer. Hard water prevents the soap from being completely soluble. Soft water, by comparison, is far more soluble and results in cleaner, brighter, and more luminous hair and skin.
- Hard water also impacts your washing machine. Soft water negates the negative impacts of producing cleaner and brighter clothing. Your clothes will last longer too.
- Your dishes will be cleaner. Hard water leaves white-ish deposits and spotting on your glasses and silverware. Water softeners result in better-looking and cleaner dishes.
How Big Should My Water Softener Be?
Kinetico Quality Water’s installation experts can help determine how big your water softener needs to be. Ultimately, it will depend on a variety of factors, including the size of your home, how many people use the water and your exact water conditions. We’ll also help you decide where it should go.
