Hard water naturally contains several minerals including calcium, iron and magnesium that tend to build up as sediment on your home’s plumbing pipes and also make it difficult to create a decent soapy lather. Installing a residential water softening system can help resolve these as well as other issues.
Many people choose to install home water softeners to help save money. Water softening can help heat household water more efficiently and softened water requires less soap and laundry detergent for cleaning. After installing a water softener, some people even notice their clothes appear cleaner upon washing. This is because hard water deposits tend to leave behind mineral residue.
Ace Hardware carries several top-rated electric water softener models to fit your water capacity needs. For help in determining what type of water softener you need, use our water softener calculator in the plumbing section of our interactive videos page.
