Water Softeners in Charlotte
If you are interested in having a water softener installed in your home, a Charlotte plumber with Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Charlotte will be ready to install it so you can soon have cleaner water distributed throughout your whole house. With soft water in your home you won’t need to worry about the accumulation of magnesium and calcium that can form scale in your pipes and substantially reduce water flow. A water softener can also make your skin softer, your dishes cleaner and your clothes brighter. There are several signs that will let you know whether or not you need a water softener installed by a Charlotte plumber. If you experience any of the following get in touch with us and we’ll handle your installation quickly so you can start enjoying all the benefits of soft water.
- You can’t create a soapy lather when showering or bathing: If you have hard water you’ll have a hard time creating lather when you use soap or shampoo. The reason is magnesium and calcium tend to suppress lather. In many instances, you’ll wind up using much more soap than people who have soft water.
- You have water spots on your dishes and glasses: Hard water leads to a film on dishes and glasses that will remain after water has evaporated. Again, calcium and magnesium are the culprits.
- You have a lot of soap scum in your shower or bathtub: Because your soap is not lathering properly it stays in your shower or tub. This is another sign you need a water softener.
How it Works
A water softener is hooked directly in to your home’s water supply. It works through a process known as “ion exchange” where sodium ions are exchanged for the minerals that cause hard water. There are several types of water softeners on the market. While some work on a schedule with an electric timer others track water usage through a computer and then regenerate your system with soft water when necessary. If you’re looking for a water softener in Charlotte, we at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Charlottecan work with you to determine exactly what type of water softener you need in your home so you can have cleaner and purer water right away.
