Hard water is water that is high in mineral content that is formed when water percolates through deposits of limestone and chalk which are primarily made up of calcium and magnesium carbonates. Hard water leaves behind signs in your home. These signs include soap solutions that form scum instead of lather, scaled plumbing, staining on fixtures, yellow or dingy laundry, and even dry, itchy skin from bathing. Hard water also leads to more frequent maintenance or shorter life spans for water-using appliances.
Soft water is water without that high mineral content. Soft water helps soaps lather, keeps plumbing intact, doesn’t leave stains, and allows appliances to live up to and beyond their expectancies. The most common way to treat hard water and turn it into soft water is the use of a water softener. Complete Water Inc. systems are designed to remove the hard water elements with technologies that are more efficient, using less water than previous generations of water softeners.
Soft water has been health and application benefits. Soft water helps soaps and cleaners lather. Soft water also refrains from leaving stains or residues on fixtures, and is healthier for clean showers and smoother, more moisturized skin. Soft water also maintains the quality and extends the longevity of your internal plumbing systems with cleaner water running through your appliances like dishwashers and laundry machines. Soft water even helps your clothes remain their quality, color, and condition a lot longer.
