Millions! During the 1920’s and 1930’s water softeners started to be sold to home owners to improve the taste of drinking water. In the USA there is no myth surrounding drinking softened water, over 1 million people a year have a water softener installed.
There are millions of water softeners in everyday use in American homes which are used for drinking water purposes. In some parts of the US, almost everyone needs one because of the hardness of groundwater but millions of others are bought as a preference item.
There has never, in over 90 years of history, been a health related problem reported that was associated with a water softener.
If you would like further advice on any aspect of owning a water softener the best thing to do is book a demonstration so that one of our representatives can answer all of your questions in more detail.
