How does water softening treatment work?
The process of ion exchange is responsible for soft water capability. In the process, calcium and magnesium are separated from the water. More specifically, water enters a tank filled with resin beads. These beads attract the calcium and magnesium, removing them from the water thus changing the water quality from hard to soft. Then, it simply runs out of the faucet.
Better Water Quality For Your Home
There are a million benefits to adding a water softening treatment to your home. Most homeowners do not fully realize the benefits of using soft water as opposed to hard water. Cosmetic issues from hard water are typically one of the first differences homeowners notice after treatment. For example, build-up on shower heads and soap scum on bathtubs and showers are common hard water issues.
In addition to cosmetic issues, hard water also negatively impacts your plumbing. Hard water causes a build up of scale and mineral residue in your pipes causing slowed water pressure. By reducing the harshness of your water, you can prolong the length of use of your pipes. You can expect to have increased water flow and pressure due to the removal of minerals in pipes.
Hard water causes issues for your appliances. Water heaters and washers are some of the main major appliances that fall victim to hard water related issues. Scale and lime build-up often surface when hard water runs through these appliances. Eventually, the minerals from hard water will begin to stick to the inside of washing machines, which almost always results in the need for maintenance or repairs of the washing machine.
Making the switch to soft water helps reduce the risk of needing repairs or shelling out hundreds of dollars on fixing pipes and/or appliances. Similarly, hard water can also cause damage to small appliances such as coffee makers and humidifiers. Mineral build up negatively affects the functionality of household appliances that use water.
Soft Water and Your Body
Of course, regardless of hard and soft, all water has effects on your body. However, using soft water has lasting benefits on both your skin and hair. If you are prone to itchy skin or dry hair, hard water most likely has been adding to your issues.
Using soft water allows for healthier skin than if you use hard water. Minerals in hard water cause skin dryness leaving you itchy and uncomfortable. Studies have shown skin conditions such as eczema can be related to using hard water when bathing. Those who use hard water are more likely to develop the condition due to the minerals in the water.
Magnesium and calcium are known to cause damage to hair. The pair causes hair to become brittle resulting in easy breakage and frustration by homeowners. Moreover, research shows hard water usage leads to a large decrease in hair thickness as well.
