Investing in a Water Softener

Are Water Softeners Worth the Investment?

A water softener is an investment in the lifespan of your home’s appliances, dishes and laundry – and the way your skin and hair will feel with soft water. They provide good value for the money you’ll spend, and they’ll even save you money in other areas of your home.

Benefits of Water Softener Systems

Understanding what a water softener system will provide for you and your home is important when it comes to investing in one. Hard water is highly mineralized. It not only damages appliances and plumbing, but it affects your skin, hair, laundry and dishes, too.

When it comes to your pipes, faucets and appliances, the minerals in hard water here in San Antonio or the Hill Country can build up and limit the flow of water. To remove the limescale buildup, you’ll either need to pay for extensive cleaning or, in some cases, replace entirely. Your hot water heater is one appliance that may receive the most buildup and can be costly to clean or replace. With a soft water system, your pipes won’t clog as easily, your hot water heater and other appliances won’t need to be cleaned as often – and they’ll last you years longer! By investing in a water softener system, you extend the life of your machines.

The minerals in hard water also affect your skin and hair. When you shower with hard water, your skin will dry out quicker – and because hard water doesn’t dissolve soap entirely, your hair will lose its shine. The same is true for laundry detergent. Since hard water doesn’t dissolve the detergent properly, your clothes will fade in a shorter amount of time and the material will wear out faster. Similarly, hard water causes spots left on glassware due to the remnants of dish detergent. If you notice spots or yellow stains on your bathroom tiles, sinks or toilets, this is from the minerals in hard water continuously staining it over time. No matter how much you clean, getting those stains or hard water spots to stay away can only be solved with a soft water system. Installing a water softener will keep your skin and hair soft, shiny and hydrated, lengthen the lifespan of your clothes, and make your glassware, tiles, toilets and sinks sparkle again.

All in all, investing in a Kinetico water softener will save you money in the long run. Between not having to pay for appliance cleaning or replacement to an actual decrease on your bills, the water softener will typically pay for itself after a few years. Your appliances will work more efficiently, and you’ll notice you use less water in the shower when rinsing off. Not only will your clothes last you longer with a soft water system, you’ll end up using less detergent because the soft water allows your soap to work correctly. A water softener system is definitely worth the investment for your pipes, appliances, clothes and body. Contact us today for a free quote to get started.

We're very glad we got this installed. The technician, Alberto, was very polite and thoroughly explained what he was doing and what we would need to do.

Alberto kept me informed on his arrival time. He was professional and exceeded my expectations concerning the install of the water filtration system. I also need to put a plug in for Tracy for her patience and skills at making things happen behind the scenes...a true unsung hero. They both deserve a raise!

Melissa

I just had my system installed by Alberto and Jay, and I wanted to say that they rocked. Got it all in and gave me some instructions to follow, all while being determined to detail and professional. Thanks, fellas.
