The Impacts of Hard Water on Your Home

Make hosting easier

Hard water stains on clean dishes is never a welcome sight. Hard water minerals cause spots on dishes and glassware that can be embarrassing when having company over. Soft water will solve this problem, and it will even make the hand towels in your powder room softer.

Improve your well-being

Hard water causes soap and shampoo to lather poorly, can be rough on the skin, and it even causes blemishes that can otherwise be avoided. With soft water, enjoy softer, healthier skin and hair.

Spend less on laundry

Imagine how much money you could save if you didn’t need so much laundry detergent and fabric softener. With soft water, use up to 50% less laundry detergent and skip the fabric softener altogether.

Protect water-using appliances

Hard water minerals can prematurely age water-using appliances, causing an uptick in expensive repairs. A water softener can extend appliance life and lower maintenance.

Stop Guessing, Get Your Water Quality Checked

Ready to find out what’s in your water? Home water can be tested to see how hard it is and to check for contaminants that can affect taste, smell, and even your health. The only way to truly know your water quality is to have a certified lab or a Water Pro test your water.
