Your clothes' greatest ally
How bad can hard water really be?
Well, it can cause your showerhead to lose 75% of its flow rate in just 18 months. It can rob your water heater of almost 50% of its efficiency. And it interacts negatively with soap, reducing its cleaning power.
Problems that all disappear when you use a salt-based water softener.
Soft water doesn’t contain the hard minerals like calcium and magnesium that cause scale buildup. And the benefits are countless. Appliances run better, last longer and are cheaper to operate. And studies show that, with soft water, you can use half as much laundry detergent at colder temperatures and still get better results than with hard water.
In other words, salt-based water softeners help save energy, save money, and save the environment.
