When water contains a large amount of minerals, it is known as hard water. Water softeners are machines that remove the excess minerals from your water.
Hard water can cause buildup in pipes, even clogging them. It can cause lime scale, which will damage your appliances. It can also prevent soap from dissolving and slow the water heating up. All of these things are extra costs to you that are easily preventable with a water softener.
Water softeners have a tank filled with small beads, and when the hard water runs through the tank the minerals stick to the beads. After the water goes through, salt water flows through the tank, washing the beads clean to do it again. The water that comes out is “softened”.
