Here’s What a Water Softener Can Do for You
When water is called hard, it means that it contains more minerals than regular water, especially calcium and magnesium. This type of water causes pipes to clog and makes it more difficult for soap or detergent to dissolve when you’re washing clothes. Here are a few benefits to getting a water softener installation.
- Less Clogging of Faucets & Appliances
- Softer, Less Irritated Skin
- Softer Clothes Out of the Washer
- White Clothes Remain White Longer
- Appliances Last Longer
- Plumbing Lasts Longer
If you’re contemplating the benefits of having a water softener installation, check with your local plumbing professional and see if it will benefit your home.
Is Your Water Softener in Need of Repair? Here’s How to Know!
Most water softeners are built to last about 15 years, so if your water softener is that old or older, chances are you need water softener repair or replacement. However, if you’re under that time frame, here are a few indicators that something has gone wrong and you need a pro.
- Soap Won’t Lather
- Stiff, Scratch Clothes
- Damage To Appliances Like Coffee Makers, Washing Machines & Ice Makers
- Calcium Buildup Around Faucets
- Change in Water Taste
Call your water softener service company if you think your water softener isn’t working properly or if you know you need a repair.

Water Softeners & Your Pipes
If you have hard water and notice the buildup of scale on your faucets, just think about how much that buildup is harming your plumbing. Over time, this buildup will cause clogs that can completely shut down your water or sewer flow. If you have hard water, call a water softener service company and see if you can benefit from softer water.
