Do You Need A Water Softener?

Do You Need A Water Softener?

Excessive amounts of calcium and magnesium will cause water to be “hard”. The degree of hardness becomes greater with increasing amounts of these dissolved minerals. Many of us use water filters these days, or are at least familiar with the reasons why we may need a water filter to get toxins out of the water we consume. When it comes to water softeners, on the other hand, many of us are in the dark. The truth is that nearly 80% of homes in the United States are serviced by hard water, which can cause damage to belongings, fixtures, and even your own hair… but a lot of us don’t even realize what’s going on.

So how do you know if you have a hard water problem? What are the signs that you do need a water softener?
