A lot of people are opting to soften their water, but why? Softer water provides a lot of benefits. Most people associate soft water with being gentler on your skin, clothes, bathtub and dishes. However, while soft water is easier on all of these things people often don’t realize it is also easier on your plumbing.
Hard water contains a variety of dissolved minerals such as calcium and magnesium. While these are not harmful to your body they can harm your pipes. Hard water has a tendency to deposit minerals in your pipes, which can clog them over time and lead to costly repairs and replacements.
The water is also harder on the pipes themselves, and prolonged exposure to hard water can corrode pipes. This can lead to more serious and expensive plumbing problems down the road, and can drastically reduce the lifetime of your pipes. Corroded pipes can more easily become burst pipes, potentially resulting in thousands of dollars of damage to your home and possessions.
Investing in a water conditioning service will help keep your pipes in top condition, just like a good brand of oil keeps a sports car running smoothly. This prolongs the life of your plumbing, saving you money in the long run.
