Water Softening

water_softener1Do you find soap scum all over your sinks, bathroom and shower? Does it seem like soap and shampoo aren?t really working right, leaving you still unclean. Is the water in your pipes flowing slowly, as if something is blocking it?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions chances are the water in your home is too hard. Hardness in water is the result of an excess of hard ions such as calcium, magnesium and iron. When these elements react with soaps and detergents they inhibit them from properly doing their job and leave clothes and skin still dirty. What’s more, calcium and magnesium deposits in pipes build up into a thick scale. This in turn makes pipes congested and restricts the flow of water in your tap.

If hard water is a problem in your home, don’t worry. T Smith Plumbing Contractors , can install a water softener system in your home that reduces metals and hard ions in your water, leaving you with cleaner dishes, brighter clothes and softer skin.

Water that contains a high level of dissolved minerals is referred to as hard water and requires a home water softener. Hard water can cause problems for your home’s plumbing system and water-using appliances. This happens when heated, dissolved hard-water minerals re-crystallize and form scales that can clog plumbing.

Mineral Deposits

Scale, as well as lime deposits, can take their toll on water-heating appliances. Over a period of time, dishwashers and coffee makers are more likely to need repairs without use of a water softener. These deposits can also damage the inside of your water heater, causing reduced efficiency and potential water heater failure – which will require plumbing repairs.

Soap Scum

Minerals found in hard water can react with soap to create bathtub ring and tile scum. Hard water can also cause spotty dishes and make laundry grey and stiff.

The Solution

You can turn your hard water into gentle, soft water by installing a water softener. They work by substituting sodium chloride (salt) for hard minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and iron.
