Read on to learn more about the benefits of installing a water softener in your home.
What’s Hard Water?
“Hard water” is simply a term that refers to high levels of minerals in the natural water around your location. Whether you receive water from the municipal system or have your own well system, the lakes, rivers and aquifers that your water comes from can have high levels of calcium or magnesium that make it hard. Not all homes struggle with hard water the same way, but the limestone and other geographies in Texas cause our state to have some of the hardest water in the entire country!
Is Hard Water Harmful?
Hard water is NOT dangerous to ingest or use around the home. The high mineral count isn’t toxic, but it can have some negative side effects on your family and house. If you can make your home more efficient and easier to live in, why wouldn’t you? Here are some symptoms that hard water can cause:
- Strange smelling or tasting water
- Limescale inside pipes or in appliances
- Stains in your tub or shower
- Cloudy glassware and dishes
- Itchy, irritated skin
- Dry, brittle hair
If you’ve noticed some of these signs around your home, you probably have hard water. To be sure that minerals are what you’re dealing with, you can always have a water hardness test completed on your water. Then, you can speak with a professional about Frisco water softener installation in your home!
Advantages Of Water Softeners
If you’re looking for a solution to those annoying symptoms of hard water, a water softener is the most obvious choice. By removing the minerals in your water before they reach your home, you can protect your pipes, appliances and body much better. Water softeners are very low maintenance, usually only requiring you to add salt pellets periodically to the system. They even flush themselves, requiring maintenance appointments infrequently.
While the systems are an investment to make, most Frisco homeowners find that the expense is well worth it when their laundry comes out softer, their dishwashers last longer and their skin feels soft. The great news is that our local plumbers at Earl’s Plumbing are expert water softener installers! You can be 100% confident that your new unit is set up correctly and ready to soften every drop of water in your home.
