How Does A Water Softener Actually Soften My Water?
You’ve seen the signs. That greenish buildup around your faucet and shower head? Not good. You know it’s only a matter of time before your hard water problem becomes a flooding problem. Yet, still you hesitate to do anything about it. You’ve got to consider your options.
Well, I’m here to tell you that your first and best option is to install a water softener. If you’re like me, anytime you hear someone in the maintenance profession say the word “install,” you know it’s not going to be cheap. The truth is, a water softener can run anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. But let me tell you, the damage that they help prevent is worth it. Replacing the weak, hard-water-corroded pipes of even a 1,500 square foot home can cost as much as $10,000! And that’s not counting the damage to your house’s structure and personal belongings that come with a burst pipe.
By installing a water softener, you’re investing now to protect your home’s future.
So, how does a water softener actually soften your water? It’s pretty simple, really. A water softener is a giant filter that cleanses your water of harmful minerals before it travels into your home’s lines. The filter acts as a magnet, sucking the harshness from the water. The end result: softer water traveling through your home, leading to a much longer life of your pipes and plumbing fixtures, and more importantly, saving you from any major plumbing problems.
