A water softener protects the plumbing in your house and keeps the pipes from becoming full of limestone.
The first appliance the water softener protects is the hot water heater, an average cost for a hot water heater is $1,800 not to mention you may end up with a cold shower. Have no water softener with the water as hard as it is in San Antonio you will need to drain your hot water heater twice a year. If you have a tankless please read your warranty since most companies void your warranty if the water is more than 10.5 grains hard if there is no water softener. Your hot water heater uses approximately 25% more electricity when there is no water softener.
Now think about the expensive appliances we all buy today like the upgraded washing machines, refrigerators, dishwashers, coffee machines and steam machines all have a longer life with a water softener and make in them work more efficiently. Also, the Spa like bathrooms with the expensive faucets, shower doors, upgraded vanities keep their spa quality looks.
Finally, clothes, linens, and towels are also expensive so you can keep them looking newer brighter and softer for a longer time period having a water softener.
