There are many water softener benefits. The main reason to get a water softener? Protecting your plumbing and water heater from scale build up.

  • Prolong the life of your plumbing and ensure you get full water flow.
  • Help your water heater and other appliances last longer.
  • Your water heater will work more efficiently, which can lower your gas bills. You should notice hotter water, and may even want to turn down the temperature on your heater.

Soft water is one of those things that will make life better for your family in a lot of little ways:

  • You’ll use less soap and detergent.
  • Your hair and skin will feel softer, even though you use less moisturizer and conditioner.
  • Your clothes may appear whiter and brighter.
  • Drinking water will just plain taste better.

Once you install it, you’ll wonder how you lived without it.

Benefits Of Installing A Water Softener

One of the main benefits of having softer water is that there will be far less limescale build-up on sinks, taps, shower heads, shower screens, and kettles.

Cleaning sinks, taps, shower heads, shower screens, and kettles are much easier. Bathtubs too, as there is far less hardened soap residue.

You may extend the life of your appliances such as your boiler or washing machine due to minimal limescale build-up.

Due to the minimized scaling, you will receive better efficiency which saves money on energy bills.

There are possible health benefits. It is suggested that soft water allows skin to naturally moisturize and provides some relief to eczema.

Do you notice after you wash your hair that it is dry and dull? Perhaps you’ve washed your skin and found it dry and irritated. You’ve most likely tried switching soaps and shampoos to see if that would help. We’re guessing it didn’t work as well as you hoped. That’s because the real problem might be the magnesium and calcium levels in your water.

Certain types of hair will react to hard water in a negative way – simply put, you’ll have major frizz, dry scalp and hair, and a dull, faded look. Your skin will also feel the effects. It can dry out and become itchy and irritated.

Installing a water softener will filter out those harsher minerals, and make your hair and skin softer and healthier.

You end up paying a higher energy bill simply because the minerals in your water are making it harder for your water heater to do its job. We agree, that doesn’t seem right!

A water softener system will stop further buildup from occurring, and give your water heater a chance to work its magic efficiently. In fact, with no scale to stand in its way, you may find your water heats up so much that you have to adjust the temperature.

Using a water softener means your energy bills will be where they should be, and you’ll have hotter, more gentle water to boot.

Fewer detergents and soap are required as soft water lathers much better than hard water. There are claims of saving up to several hundred dollars per year by some households due to this fact.

Savings on purchased detergents and soaps, as well as by preventing the failure of domestic appliances, results in savings that outweigh the cost of the water softener, installation, and maintenance.

Using a water softener will mean that your drinking water will no longer have that calcium/magnesium taste. Who doesn’t love better-tasting water?

Just as your water heater gets scale buildup from hard water, so too does your plumbing. And no one wants to have buildup in their plumbing. Not only does this decrease the diameter of your pipes, which limits flow and efficiency, but it can decrease your plumbing’s lifespan.

The water softener benefit you’ll appreciate the most is the lack of buildup. Not only will this reduce your chances of inconvenient and messy clogs, but it will ensure that your pipes last as long as possible.

What Causes Hard Water?

Hard water in Calgary has more calcium and magnesium in it. As water flows underground, it can pick up these and other minerals from the rocks. The water in Calgary’s rivers comes from the Rockies, where it collects lots of minerals.

Hard water can dry out skin and hair while reducing the longevity of your clothing and appliances. Knight plumbing knows water softeners and can perform water softener installation in Calgary and area with services that are 100% guaranteed. There are so many benefits to installing a water oftener in your home.
