The hard water that flows to your home contain high amount of minerals. These minerals can be annoying when they form deposits on your pipes, bathroom and kitchen tiles, sinks and shower cabin; to such an extent, that they damage your hair and skin by the mineral residue.

Soft water suitable for drinking
Often people think that soft water is safe to drink and that it is the most essential ingredient to make the perfect cup of tea. In addition to this, it is also used to make whiskey. It is said that hard water can not destroy the taste of whiskey. Soft water has a unique taste that is why the Scots often have the best whiskey in the world.

Relief of skin conditions
Research has shown that the use of soft water provides the relief of many skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis and various other conditions caused by dry skin. It has even been shown that a water softener was responsible for the complete eradication of skin problems previously associated with hard water.

Improve your hair quality
Hard water is known to damage your hair and also to promote hair loss. On the other hand, the use of soft water strongly improves the hair washing experience and it also prevents dry and frizzy hair. However, it is also important that you use the right shampoo, as there are different shampoos that work well with soft water and others that work better with hard water. Ask the sales assistant in the shampoo department to help you choose the shampoo that suits you best.

Greater intake of sodium
The soft water is known to have a higher amount of sodium compared to hard water, which contains more magnesium and calcium ions that are removed during the ion exchange. Generally, when softening hard water, the sodium increase is only 20mg per 23.5cl of water, while compared to a glass of skimmed milk of 23.5cl the sodium content is around 120mg. For orange juice of the same amount, the sodium content is 25mg and for a glass of soft drink of 35.5cl, the sodium content varies between 20 and 70mg. The amount of sodium in soft water does not disturb the skin when the water is used as it does not pass through the skin.

Limiting calcium deposits by hard water
Limescale deposits can build up in various places such as pipes, faucets, shower heads, etc. Water softeners revive the condition of the showers, pipes and faucets by removing all the scale deposits they remove, and they provide a smooth flow of the water that foams and is lime-free. Hence, the shower and cleaning experience is revitalizing again.

Soft water tastes better
In comparison with hard water, soft water contains remarkably fewer minerals and that is why it tastes much better than hard water. The same applies to drinks made from soft water. Among other things, tea, coffee, green tea and lemonade taste pure and refreshing.

After going through these reasons, it's safe to say that only quality water softeners should be used to remove minerals from hard water and make it soft for use in the kitchen, bath, the laundry and machine room and to save money, time and energy.
