If you are like most Americans, you probably don’t want to drink tap water as it comes from the tap, without filtration. Many people put water filtration systems on their kitchen faucet so that they can drink cleaner, clearer water. However, there are many other reasons that you should filter and soften your water. A whole home water filtration and softening system can be of great benefit to you and your family.
Hard Water Worsens Skin Conditions
It has been scientifically proven that showering or bathing with hard water or chemically treated water can worsen skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. In fact, some people who have sensitive skin but have never had these conditions can develop skin problems with hard water. Many people with psoriasis find that if they move to a new location with softer water, their symptoms completely disappear.
Soft Water Cleans Better
Soft water cleans your home much better than hard water. Soft water is especially important for your clothes washer because hard water can make clothing wear out faster and may not get it clean and smelling fresh.
Hard Water Destroys Appliances
If you have hard water, it can shorten the lifetime of your appliances such as clothes washers and dishwashers. Hard water can leave deposits in these appliances, causing build up that can prevent them from functioning properly, or they can destroy your appliances completely, causing a need for expensive replacements.
