Benefits of Installing a Water Softener

Are you concerned about hard water in your home? Hard water is a widespread issue in Lancaster County and can affect many areas. It causes lime scale buildup which can damage your appliances, plumbing and fixtures as well as reduce the effectiveness of soap and cleaning products. Haldeman Mechanical installs Waterfall brand water conditioning equipment that will remove these hard minerals resulting in softer water that is safer for your home and provides a number of significant benefits.

Water Drop.

Improved Efficiency of Appliances

By removing hard minerals, water softeners offer a way to lengthen the lifespan of your appliances, including items such as coffee makers, dishwashers, ice makers, and washing machines. Mineral buildup inside these appliances reduces the space water has to move through piping and causes damage to internal components. This in turns leads to more frequent repairs and will eventually result in appliance breakdowns.

Reduced Cleaning Time and Cost

Along with hard water comes that pesky lime scale buildup in showers, sinks and toilets that is often very challenging to remove. In addition, hard water makes it difficult for cleaning products to lather and effectively clean. And because cleaning products lather more with soft water, you need less to get the job done, saving you money in the long run.

Brighter and Softer Clothing

Hard water can be rough on your washing machine and your clothing, causing premature fading, dull colors, and stiff fabric. Hard water leaves mineral deposits on your clothing and over time those deposits affect the look and feel of clothing. Thanks to soft water’s ability to mix more effectively with detergent, your clothes will be cleaner, appear brighter and feel softer. And soft water requires less detergent to clean your clothes.

Cleaner Dishes

Getting frustrated when you dishes come out of the dishwasher cloudy or covered with spots? Soft water fixes the problem by removing the minerals before they can build up on your dishes, leaving them sparkling clean.

Improved Hair and Skin

The minerals in hard water deposit on your skin and hair causing them to be dry, limp and rough, and can be particularly problematic for people with skin conditions such as eczema and dry scalp. With soft water, soap and shampoo can more effectively clean, leading to smoother, softer skin and hair.

Protect Your Water Heater

A new water heater is a substantial investment. Hard water can wreak havoc on water heaters by causing blockages and other internal damage. This can significantly reduce the efficiency of your unit, increase the need for repairs, and lead to premature breakdown. Adding a water softener will clear out any mineral deposits and improve the efficiency and lifespan of your unit.
