Detergent savings – soft water can reduce detergent use by as much as 50 percent. That’s because homeowners do not need to use as much soap or cleaning aids to wash laundry, dishes, hair and body. You save on detergent purchases while getting even cleaner results.
Lower energy bills – soft water can decrease energy costs by up to 24 percent. Consumers can now wash their clothes in 60-degree versus 100-degree water temperatures, decreasing the energy required to heat water for successful stain removal.
Appliance longevity – using softened water helps to increase the lifespan of your water-using appliances, by preventing scale buildup that can damage equipment and lead to premature replacement. In fact, washing machines run with hard water can wear out up to 30 percent quicker.
Water heater efficiency – gas storage tank household water heaters that run on hard water have as much as a 48 percent loss of efficiency, whereas those operating on soft water can maintain their original efficiency rating over a 15-year lifetime.
Healthier plumbing – Hard water scale buildup not only attacks appliances, but clogs pipes, slows drains and constricts the rate of water flow from showerheads by up to 75 percent. Soft water keeps these “lines” open and prevents the need for costly plumbing repairs.
