Water softening systems reduce the “hardness” of the water, which can have significant benefits for consumers. With soft water, smaller amounts of detergents and soaps are needed for cleaning processes, materials acquire fewer stains, and energy is saved in water heating due to less scaling. To counteract the negative effects of hard water, many homeowners and businesses are making the switch to soft water systems. Learn about the many reasons to invest in water softeners. Jacksonville FL water softening professionals are available to provide any water conditioning service you may need to ensure that your water is up to your standards.

Appliances and Plumbing
Hard water can cause damage in water-using appliances, such as washing machines, dishwashers, water heaters, and air conditioners, due to a buildup of minerals. Over time, these hard water chemicals can also reduce the efficiency of plumbing systems. Water softening systems save both water and money, and will usually pay for itself within a 7 to 8 month period.

Hair and Skin Care
Hard water does not create the rich lather that you see with softer water.   Many times, hard water leaves an invisible film on the skin which can block pores and collect bacteria and dirt, resulting in itchy, chapped or dry skin. Hard water can also have a negative impact on hair, causing drab locks that are resistant to hair coloring. When you invest in water softeners, Jacksonville well and irrigation professionals can help eliminate this problem, as softer water is gentler, resulting in softer skin and more manageable hair.

Laundry and Housecleaning
Removal of soil from clothes has been proven more effective in soft water than hard water, as soft water activates the detergent or soap to make smaller amounts more effective. Soft water eliminates hard water spots on dishes and helps glassware shine to its fullest potential. With soft water, even cleaning tubs, sinks, and shower tiles is more effective with better results.
