Hundreds of homeowners are discovering the many advantages of installing whole-home water softeners. Water softening provides cleaner, “softer” water that’s easier on your plumbing pipes than hard water. Water softeners prevent limescale buildup, boost the efficiency of household water systems, and lengthen the lifespan of your pipes. Craig’s Plumbing offers whole-house water softening system installation as part of our smart water solutions for Las Vegas residents.
“Soft” water is water that doesn’t have calcium, magnesium, iron, and other ions. It’s the opposite of “hard” water, which does contain these ions. The minerals in hard water have been known to clog pipes and lessen the ability for soap and detergents to dissolve. When hard water passes through water softeners, the softeners remove “hard” ions. Installing a whole-home water softening system removes harmful ions straight at the source of the water before it can enter (and damage) your home’s pipes.
A whole-house water softener expands the lifespans of your appliances and water-based applications, including water heaters, tanks, dishwashers, washing machines, air conditioning units, and solar heating systems. Soft water doesn’t contribute to harmful limescale buildups in these appliances, saving you money on repairs and replacements over time.
Water softeners can also improve your skin and hair over time, leading to softer skin, less frizz, and smoother hair. Soft water can help smooth damaged or coarse hair, while hard water can make these problems worse. Washing clothes with soft water leads to brighter, softer clothes and the need for less detergent. Your dishes will be spotless, without hard water spots or mineral residue.
You’ll enjoy all these benefits and more with a whole-house water softener, all while boosting your home’s efficiency and preventing undesirable pipe clogs. Water softeners are a fantastic investment for any homeowner looking to boost water quality for years to come.
