The benefits of having a water softener in your home here in San Antonio

The benefits of having a water softener in your home include extended life of your plumbing and appliances, softer, healthier skin and nails, reduced water spotting and scale build up in your sinks, tubs, and tiles, and so much more. Water softeners remove calcium, magnesium, and other minerals contained in hard water to make it softer and better for your home. However, before purchasing a water softener for your home, research is the key to aid you in making the right choice for your home. This also helps save you money in the long run because correctly choosing a system will run efficiently and economically for a long time.
  • First realize you need a system in San Antonio and surrounding areas that work off ion exchange. This means the unit uses salt or potassium. San Antonio has some of the hardest water in the United States. The saltless systems are a water conditioner, not a water softener they will not give you the results you are probably looking for. The ones that use salt will get rid of the white film on faucets, shower doors and glass. Your hair, skin and laundry is better. The calcium has been removed from the water coming into your house.
  • Also, making sure to purchase the right size system for your home depending on the flow rate and water hardness levels in your home
  • Water softener will remove calcium and magnesium. The hardness in the water. If you want to remove the disinfecting chemicals you will need a whole house filter in conjunction with the water softener. Again do your research.
