Do I Need Water Softener?

May 28, 2020

Depending on the source of the water in your home, the “hardness” or “softness” can vary widely. However, the presence of hard water can cause a number of negative symptoms, as well as expensive future plumbing repairs, so it is important to know if you have hard water or not. If you are unsure if the water in your Salt Lake City-area home is hard or soft, here are some signs to look out for.

Contact SameDay at (801) 726-3329 to schedule a free water softener installation estimate and improve your water quality today.

What is a Water Softener?

All water contains dissolved mineral solids, mostly calcium, magnesium, bicarbonates, and sulfates. The more minerals your water contains, the “harder” it is and the more issues it can cause. A water softener system uses sodium ionization to remove these hardness-causing minerals from your water. The water treatment specialists at SameDay provide water evaluation testing, as well as installation and maintenance for all water softening systems. Our water softeners are customized for your home to effectively remove any impurities and minerals present in your water.

Signs Your Salt Lake City-Area Home Needs Water Softener

  • Staining – The minerals in hard water can cause stubborn stains on your sinks, toilets, or bathtubs. It also causes difficult-to-remove spots on glassware.
  • Mineral Deposit Buildup – Scale or limescale can build up on your pots, tea kettles, coffeemakers, or shower heads, making them difficult to clean or use. This scale can also build up in larger, more expensive appliances, like your dishwasher or washing machine.
  • Increased Utility Bills – Not only can these minerals build up in your appliances, they can also form deposits in the pipes in your house, which causes your systems to have to work harder to move water, resulting in higher bills.
  • Faded or “Grayed” Laundry – The minerals in hard water make detergents less effective, which can leave your laundry less clean or give a faded appearance through the accumulation of buildup.
  • Dry Skin and Hair – Itchy buildup can also occur in your hair or on your skin, as shampoos and soaps cannot dissolve properly in hard water either.
  • Water Heater Malfunction – Heating hard water accelerates the accumulation of scale in the tank and can cause your water heater to fail prematurely.
