Many homes in Phoenix AZ have water softeners as Arizona is known for having some of the hardest water in the country. Hard water is easiest to detect when doing household chores. It leaves clothes looking dingy as well as water spots and residue on dishes, and is tougher on your appliances. The elements in hard water do not react well with soap leaving the lather less rich and bubbly, even hair washed in hard water can feel sticky and dull.
Natural rainwater falls in a soft state, as it is absorbed in the ground and our waterways it picks up minerals like lime, calcium, chalk and magnesium. Some people prefer drinking hard water because of the health benefits of the minerals contained in the water. As the minerals are removed from hard water during the softening process the sodium content increases, thus some people also prefer the taste of hard water over soft water.
Benefits of Soft Water
Installing a water softener will prolong the life of your appliances. Taking the elements out of the hard water allows your dishwasher, washing machine and water heater to work less hard. Because of this energy bills are noticeably lower in homes with water softeners. Soap will lather better and items will be left cleaner. Clothes and skin will be softer, hair will look healthy and glasses will sparkle.
Soft water is not suggested for those with heart or circulatory problems, or others who may be on a low sodium diet.
