Have you been considering adding a water softener to your home, but are wondering if the payoff is worth the investment?
It’s a good question.
Let’s look at some of the ways in which you get your money’s worth by getting a water softener.
Are you one of those people who loves spending hours scrubbing the tub to get rid of the soap scum? If you are, then you’ll probably be okay keeping your hard water flowing.
However, if you would rather not have to scrub your tub, or spend time hand washing dishes before you wash them in the dishwasher, then you might want to keep reading.
Soft water lets you finish cleaning faster! That’s because the water glides right off whatever it is you’re cleaning.
Unlike hard water, that leaves mineral deposits everywhere, the soft water is mineral free and leaves no water stains for you to clean up (no more embarrassing, dirty looking dishes in front of guests).
You’ll also be able to take shorter showers since shampoo and soap will lather better in soft water and rinse off cleaner. Of course, you may want to just stand there and enjoy the soft, flowing waterfall instead.
One of the big things you’ll be getting back when you install a water softener is money. The direct gain, dollar for dollar, is tremendous!
Here are just some of the ways you’ll save money when you have a water softener:
- You’ll buy less shampoo, soap, and detergent
- You won’t need to buy fabric softener for the washer and dryer
- Your appliances will last longer because they won’t be building up scale
- You’ll enjoy lower energy bills when your appliances are working better and free of sludge
It’s always nice to know that your family is safe. While hard water is not dangerous to your family, it certainly can do a number on appliances.
Think of your hot water heater, which heats gallons of water daily. If that’s not working well, then you could be looking at costly repairs and a big drop in energy efficiency.
You’ll sleep better with a water softener when you know that:
- Sludge won’t be passing through your pipes any longer, and the soft water that is will soften and loosen that old sludge, making it a non-issue.
- You’ll always have free-flowing water that doesn’t get stuck in your water tank. Such an issue could lead to flooding and worse.
Soft Water Is Better
If you’ve been debating getting a water softener, debate no more! You’ll be doing a favor for yourself, your family, and your wallet when you have a water softener professionally installed.
Clearly, there’s an amazing financial benefit. Over time, with all the savings, it’s like you’re getting it for free!
