While hard water may have its benefits, most homeowners in Poole and Bournemouth find it a menace and rightly so. Which is why we usually suggest to our customers that we install a water softener when servicing or installing their boiler.
Hard water shortens the lifespan of appliances such as kettles, washing machines and dishwashers due to limescale buildup. It also affects the health of our hair and skin as the limescale clogs skin pores and leaves hair feeling sticky. The water pressure of your house could also be compromised from the buildup of limescale in the plumbing system and your bills might start piling up from inefficient boilers or heating systems.
Water softeners have three components:
Hard Water is high in minerals such as Calcium and Magnesium. A water softener works by removing these minerals with the help of some chemistry.
Water starts by flowing into a mineral tank where it is met by resin beads that are positively charged with Sodium Ions. Calcium and Magnesium are negatively charged therefore attach to the positive ions as water passes through the resin beads. The end product is soft water.
Hard water affects your skin especially if you have a pre-existing skin condition. A water softener will finally allow you to break free from abrasive skincare products aimed at counteracting the effects of hard water. You will also notice healthier and fuller hair.
Limescale furs up appliances such as kettles, coffee makers and washing machines decreasing their efficiency and durability. A water softener will extend their lifespan and a good one could even clear the limescale.
