Is a water softener a luxury item?

A water softener is no longer thought of as a luxury item as it will pay for itself in three to five years. You will save on buying household cleaning products, reduce the amount of energy that your home uses and extend the lifespan of your washing machine.

Between three to five years, the overall savings you make will equal the initial cost of installation.

The benefits:

Softened water helps improve skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It softens hair, making it glossy and manageable, as well as creating a more pleasant shaving experience.

For the home, water softeners reduce scale which means you use fewer cleaning products in your day-to-day. They also prevent scale from reoccurring, lengthening the lifespan of your appliances.
