Softening the Blow: Understanding the Benefits of Water Softener Installations

When’s the last time you considered the quality of the water you use every day at your Tampa Bay-area home? If it’s been a long time—or if the answer is never—it’s time to change that. Having your water tested for any impurities is a worthwhile endeavor, especially considering how easy it is to get rid of those impurities and give yourself cleaner and purer water to drink, clean with, cook with, and bathe in. A water softener installation is one of the more popular investments for homeowners dealing with hard water or other water quality issues, and the Meares Plumbing and Electrical team would love to walk you through the merits of having one installed at your home.  

What Is the Difference Between Hard Water & Soft Water? 

“Hard water” is water that has higher levels of “hard” ions like magnesium and calcium. This can make the water taste weird or potentially give off a strange smell. Other signs that you have a hard water problem are a film-like feeling between your fingers whenever you wash your hands, streaks left behind on recently washed dishes or surfaces, and recently washed clothes coming out of the dryer feeling crusty. When you invest in a water softener installation, the system works to rid your water supply of those harder ions, thus “softening” the water.  

The Benefits of Water Softener Installations: Why Consider Investing In One? 

When you invest in a water softener installation for your home, you’re getting on the right track toward cleaner and purer water without those hard minerals that can cause a variety of problems. There are plenty of benefits that come with investing in a water softener, as these systems: 

  • Help prevent buildup of minerals (scale) inside your pipes and water-using appliances 
  • Make it easier to clean your dishes, as well as the surfaces inside your home 
  • Improve the taste of your water in addition to ridding it of any unpleasant odors 
  • Purify your water, which helps you enjoy cleaner and healthier skin and hair 
  • Help your water-using appliances run more efficiently, which can save you money on your monthly water bills
