WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SOFTENED WATER?
Featured here are just some of the benefits of softened water: Softened water provides real cost savings in service, maintenance and replacement of water heaters, dishwashers,
washing machines and showers and also extends their life Softened water improves the efficiency of hot water and heating systems – just 1.6mm (1/16”) of scale build-up in
heating systems will cause a 12% loss in heating efficiency Softened water can save some 50% of washing powder and toilet soap consumption and similarly reduce the
amount of shampoos, conditioners and cleaning products used Softened water can help certain dry skin conditions such as eczema Softened water saves time – independent
studies have confirmed that considerable cleaning time is saved with softened water
Softened water can, in time, remove existing scale deposits in hot water and heating
systems as well as scale around taps and stains in baths and basins Softened water has a clean silky feeling. It makes bathtime a luxury without the need for bath oils or bubble bath liquids Softened water makes hair soft and easy to manage Softened water rinses completely away without leaving scum, even after shaving Softened water makes laundry brighter and glasses and dishes sparkle and shine Softened water makes washing the car
easier and will reduce streaking and spotting. Water softeners are installed in nearly all
commercial laundries, kitchens and car washes in hard water areas
Each year, in a hard water area (300mg/l as calcium carbonate equivalent) the average family home will use water containing 70kg (154lbs) of scale. Unchecked, it will cause damage and expense. It is estimated that an ion-exchange water softener could save in the region of £200 for this average 4-person household.
