Hard water contains minerals such as calcium and magnesium that cause rust stains in the shower, calcium build-up, scaly build-up on pots, white deposits in basins, water spots on glassware or on fixtures in your bath or kitchen, and more issues in your pipes and appliances.

Water Softener

A water softener will eliminate the calcium and magnesium from the water, make your water taste better, and remove the hard water spots on your fixtures. Not only that, but it will also prolong the service life of appliances that use water and extend the life of your plumbing system. Overall, a water softener will make cleaning the house easier and will save you money on repairs if your plumbing and fixtures get damaged by the mineral build-ups.

Options For Water Softeners

The most affordable option is the distiller. A steam process is used to clean the water but slowly. Distillers are a small-scale system, cleaning only a few gallons per hour. Distillation is best for single-use applications such as drinking water.

Reverse osmosis treats water also slowly as with the distiller. It is sodium-free, making it particularly helpful for those on low sodium diets. However, this option requires filter changes and routine maintenance by a professional, making it costly.

A whole house water softener system is the most popular yet the most expensive option to soften water. It treats all the water that’s coming into the home, and it’s easy to install and maintain.
