If you are living in a home without a functioning water softener, you may be experiencing some pretty costly issues. Untreated water flowing through your pipes can leave behind scale and buildup that damages your pipes, appliances, and fixtures. A water softener works to treat hard water by removing the minerals responsible for this damage, and providing you with soft drinking water. At Indy Renovation, we’re not only bathroom renovation experts, we’re also expert plumbers. Read on to learn all the benefits of installing a quality water softener in your Indianapolis home.
As we mentioned above, hard water causes costly damage to your appliances, pipes, and other fixtures in your home. After enough damage has been done, those appliances or pipes will need to be replaced prematurely. A conditioning system can prolong the life of your appliances, such as faucets, sinks, dishwashers, and washing machines, by removing minerals in the water that cause rust and decay. You’ll also save money on your gas or electric bills as your pipes will be able to flow more efficiently with treated water.
Cleaner Hair and Softer Skin
Hard water can also negatively affect your hair and skin. The minerals in hard water can prevent your soaps from effectively working and form soap scum. Soft water lacks these minerals so you can enjoy a deeper lather and cleaner shower. It can also prevent the loss of natural oils in your skin and hair.
Finally, hard water can make it very difficult to keep your dishes clean. No matter what soap or detergent you use, your glasses and silverware will always be left with a cloudy appearance. However, a water softener fixes this problem by removing the minerals that can build up on your dishes. Conditioned water also heats more quickly, which will reduce energy consumption and make your dishwashing more efficient.
From cleaner dishes and clothes to healthier skin and hair, a water treatment system is a great addition to your Indiana home. To get started, contact the plumbing experts at Indy Renovation today at (317) 375-4464.
