Water softeners turn the hard water in your plumbing system into soft water. Along with other benefits, soft water won’t permanently damage your pipes like hard water will.
What Do Water Softeners Do?
Tap water can contain beneficial minerals like magnesium and calcium. However, if the concentration of these minerals gets too high, calcium and magnesium carbonates can create a buildup that turns into limestone and chalk. Hard water can cause this buildup to grow inside and outside of your pipes. Water softening systems are hooked up to your home’s water supply and eliminate harmful buildup via magnetic and electrical currents. Water softeners don’t require electricity, and they won’t harm the planet.
Benefits of Austin Water Softener Installation
The biggest benefit of soft water is that it won’t harm your plumbing. Untreated hard water builds up in your shower and hot water heater. Left unchecked, it will ultimately clog your pipes and reduce the flow of water. It can damage your plumbing system permanently. As the mineral buildup increases, it can calcify and become increasingly difficult to remove. When the crusty buildup is finally removed, water flow will increase and you’ll use less water. You’ll also use less energy, so your utility bills won’t be as high.
There are additional advantages of having a water softener installation in your Austin, Texas, home:
- Cleaner and better tasting water
- Smoother skin and shinier hair
- Elimination of white crust and hard water stains on fixtures
