Why You May Need a Water Softener for Your Home 

Monday, December 11th, 2023

Hard water is a common problem we face with our water supply. The “hardness” of water is a measure of its mineral content: the more minerals such as calcium and magnesium are suspended in the water, the harder the water is. Hard water can often escape through municipal treatment plants because the minerals enter the water through the pipes, transporting it to homes and businesses.

Hard water won’t hurt you to drink. In fact, the minerals in hard water are considered part of a regular diet and are found in many of the foods and liquids you consume. But you still don’t want hard water in your house, and to counteract it requires arranging for our team to install a whole-house water softener in Lake Worth, FL.

Here’s why a water softener is so beneficial if you’ve got hard water in your house.
