That soap scum film you battle on your shower doors could be the result of your water! The minerals in your hard water react with soap to create soap scum; this is a visual problem to a more problematic issue.

Hard Water can be Problematic

Not only do the minerals react to soap, but they also affect how your cleaning products perform.
And what your eyes can’t see is how they wear down fixtures and appliances more quickly than soft water. This can reduce the life of your water heater, resulting in a big purchase sooner than necessary. Or a complete failure of your water heater, requiring a pricey emergency call for help. They can also cause scale buildup inside water pipes, restricting water flow.

Benefits of Installing a Water Softening System

When you install a water-softening system you will:

  • Extend the life of your water heater and improve efficiency.
  • Improve the effectiveness of your cleaning products while using less product.
  • Cleaner Laundry and less wear on clothing
  • Cleaner Dishes and prevention of mineral spots on glassware
  • Prevent soap films and detergent curds in sinks, bathtubs, and washing machines.

Things to Consider When Installing a Water Softening System

There are some key elements to consider; first, having a drain available for your water softening system is a must. Also, the location; many systems are installed right next to the water heater. Do you have adequate room and is it close to your water main? Many people consider installing the device in their crawl space. However, since maintenance is required for your water softening system, that may not be the best location.
