4 Ways Water Conditioners Improve Your Everyday Life

Posted on 11 January 2021

If you've lived with hard water everyday for most of your life, you probably don't notice it anymore. It's not until someone else drinks from your tap and makes a face at the metallic taste that you remember you live in an area with an excess of magnesium or calcium in the water.

Even if it doesn't bother you, hard water is still important to correct. Unchecked, it'll take a toll on your plumbing, your home and your quality of lifeall without you realizing it. Thankfully, water conditioners are relatively inexpensive, easy to install and even easier to maintain. The right one can correct your hard water problem and leave you with softer, neutral water that brings noticeable benefits into your everyday life.

Why make the investment in water conditioners? Here's a look at four major benefits and why it's so important to address the hard water problem in your home.

1. No more scaling or buildups

Tired of cleaning your bathroom every weekend, putting elbow grease into scrubbing away yellow spots and scale buildups on your tub or tile? This is the result of hard water! Hard water leaves behind mineral deposits and allows soap scum to cling to surfaces.

Instead of scrubbing and scrubbing, make the investment in a water conditioner to soften your water. Softer water won't leave behind scale buildups, which means your tub, tile and fixtures stay cleaner for longer.

2. Be gentle on your hair, skin and nails

Hard water takes a major toll on your hair, skin and nails - especially over time. Hard water is linked to brittle hair, dry and irritated skin, and weaker nails, as well as all the problems that come with them.

Tired of your hair dye fading fast? Sick of dry, cracked skin? Miss your long, healthy nails? A water conditioner won't affect how your daily shower feels, but it will affect how you feel after your shower! Get ready for healthy, nourished hair, skin and nails.

3. Begone, spotty dishware

It can be frustrating to take your dishware out of the dishwasher, only to find it covered in water spots and scale. At first, you might think there's a problem with your dishwasher or that you need to change soaps but the problem is almost always hard water.

When you supply your dishwasher with conditioned water that's free of excess minerals, you're allowing it to clean your dishware thoroughly, leaving behind no trace of water spots or scaling. With a water conditioner on your side, you'll feel confident in every cycle you run!

4. Long-term plumbing integrity

You can't see it, but hard water is ruining your plumbing. Hard water results in buildups and corrosion inside of plumbing, which can eventually lead to blockages and other issues. Eventually, you'll need to call a plumber to replace corroded-out plumbing caused by hard water.

The investment in a water conditioner is a long-term investment for your plumbing. Not only will it last longer without fending off excessive mineral content, you're less likely to experience clogs and backups as well.
