AVOID HIRING PLUMBER
Ever hire a plumber? It’s a fair bet that you have an even fairer one that you thought you were overcharged. Nobody wants to call a plumber, but when there’s something you can’t fix, you will have to. Limescale accumulation in your pipes something you definitely can’t fix on your own. There is a sure way of making sure you never have to, and that is by installing a water softening system.
PROBLEMS DUE TO HARD WATER
If you have hard water problems, you need the best water softener. Hard water is water that has an excess amount of calcium, magnesium or barium ions in it. These ions settle in your pipelines and form their carbonates forming limescale. Limescale is a sticky, gooey and quite frankly disgusting slime of garbage accumulating in every pipe in your house. It clogs up your water flow, which is probably why your showers keep getting weaker. It goes into your heating system and insulates the water pipes so the heater can’t heat your water properly anymore. Then there is the issue of soaps.
Does your hair feel rough even after you have used your carefully selected shampoo? Don’t call your lawyer; it’s not your shampoo it’s your water. Hard water reacts with soap. This produces something called soap scum which attaches to your hair and skin and takes ages to wash off. It is also extremely slippery and wastes your soap. For your soap or shampoo to lather, the soap or shampoo needs to react with the hard water and remove the hardness of the water.
WATER SOFTENER RESOLVES HARD WATER PROBLEMS
The solution as it has already been mentioned is using a water softener. The water softener removes the hardness of the water and helps you have a clean, relaxing shower after which you don’t want to tear your hair off. Water softeners come in many shapes and forms. If you have iron in water than you need to opt for the cartridge-based salt-free water softeners.
Hard water is the reason there are still spots on your dishes even after you’ve washed them ten times. Hard water causes the dishwasher to corrode way before its time. Same is true for the washing machines and washer-dryers. Moreover, they clog up the pipes that feed water to these appliances and lime scales from inside the machines unreachable parts which will decrease its lifespan drastically.
Installing a water softener will make small and big problems caused by hard water and iron or manganese in the water. Say goodbye to red spots on tiled walls, your bathtub, and toilets. Your water will heat a lot faster without that layer of insulation caused by limescale. Cleaning dishes, marble or tiled floors and walls will be a lot easier. Your washing machine, dishwasher and washer dryer will serve you a much longer time. Most importantly you won’t have to spend a fortune freeing up your pipelines as modern water softeners break off the limescale from your pipes, and they do it at a fraction of a cost your plumber would charge.
