Hard water is very common in the Lake of the Ozarks. Hard water is composed of dissolved minerals and salts like calcium and magnesium. Hard water can cause many issues, such as dry skin, dull hair, spots and stains on glassware, calcium buildup and laundry stains. While hard water won't physically hurt you, it can hurt your home. Installing a water softener can help ease these issues, however, is it really worth the money? Here are 5 ways that a water softener can actually save you money.
1. Save Money On Appliances
Hard water can reduce the life and efficiency of your plumbing and any appliances that use it. You will constantly replace small items like the flapper on your toilet, as the water could destroy the rubber and cause your toilet to leak. In addition, if you use hard water in your coffee pot, you'll eventually have to replace the coffee pot, as the hard water will build up inside. While these things are small, having to constantly replace them can add up. In addition, your larger appliances will also suffer. Your dishwater and washing machine could experience more breakdowns, and having to replace these expensive items will not be helpful on the pocketbook.
Installing a Culligan® water softener can help you save more money on appliance maintenance, efficiency and hot water bills. In addition, our water softeners are built to last and practically pay for themselves!
2. Save Money On Water & Cleaners
It's hard to create a lather with hard water, which means you end up using more soap and wasting more water. Hard water also creates stains that appear practically everywhere in the kitchen and bathrooms, which means you'll spend more money on soaps, detergents and harsh chemical cleaners to get rid of the stubborn stains. In addition, hard water also dries your skin, so there is more money you're having to spend on lotions and moisturizers to keep your skin feeling smooth.
3. Save Money On Energy
Hard water is tough on water heaters. They have to waste more energy on hard water than they do on soft water, which reduces their efficiency. Increased water usage means high water and energy bills. Culligan® has the world's most efficient water softener, which is proven to save you more money on not only salt but also on water and electricity.
4. Save You Time
water flow runs slower with hard water, which means you'll need to spend more time under the shower head and with your hands under the faucet. In addition, you'll also be spending more time cleaning the hard water stains on your showers, sinks, toilets and other fixtures.
5. Save Your Effort
If you do choose to install a water softener, make sure you choose Culligan®. If you choose a water softener from another brand, you'll be putting in extra effort into maintaining your equipment and even more effort lifting heavy salt bags. In addition to providing you with the best water softening equipment at the Lake of the Ozarks and expert maintenance, we can also deliver salt right to your door.
