5 Reasons to Soften Hard Water

Hard water is a household enemy. Put simply, it causes problems for you, your home and your wallet. Here are some of the main reasons to soften your water:

1) Save money 

Can you feel the pennies rolling down the drain (and scaling it up on the way)? Hard water causes limescale deposits that can damage your plumbing and appliances. Limescale is also a great insulator which is a big problem when you actually want to transfer heat.

2) Save time

4) Help the environment
