Water Softeners–They can help your pipes and save energy

Will soft water clean the household pipes?

If the question is asked because you had really hard water in your home and no water

softener for a long period of time, to the point it left the pipes lined with limestone,

calcium, dirt etc., the answer is yes.

Over time the soft water will break down the hardness and debris left in the pipes from

hard water and carry most of it away. Water heaters will begin to use far less energy to

heat the water right away and over time will start to remove the massive amounts of

calcium, limestone and other debris collected. That is like having a big calcium brick

on the bottom of the heater.

Normally with hard water you have to heat through this brick of hardness and debris

before you even heat the water. Not only will that save a fortune on energy to heat the

water, the soft water is generally much lighter in weight with all of that hardness gone,

so just the water being lighter can save as much as 20% or much more on the money

you spend to heat the water. Not to mention your clothes are softer, whiter and brighter

than they have ever been before.

That is why most people, whether they realize it or not, save enough money in their

overall budget to pay for the initial expense of a water softener or water conditioner

many times over. Add that to the fact that people with sensitive skin who have

excessively hard water gain an incredible advantage when they change to soft water.

If you buy an efficient water softener such as they sell at WaterFiltersOfAmerica.com, salt

becomes a minimal expense as the average person with a properly applied water

softener or water conditioner can expect to only add salt about once per year. Average

salt cost would then be about $25 a year depending on where you buy the salt.
