You May Need a Water Softener System If…

Just about every household will have a certain amount of hard water. However, if the water flowing through your plumbing gets to a certain level of hardness, you should seriously consider having a water softener system installed in your home by a San Jose professional.

But how do you know if you need one or not? At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing Bay Area, we have some information to let you know what to be on the lookout for some of the warning signs you need some help.

The Questions to Ask Yourself

  • Can I easily create a lather when using soap or shampoo? – If you have a hard time lathering up when you’re taking a shower, that’s probably because your water has too much magnesium and calcium. Those two elements suppress the ability of soap and shampoo to lather. As a result, you’re spending far too much money on these products, and getting far too little return.
  • Do my glasses and dishes constantly have spots when I take them out of the dishwasher? – If the answer is “yes,” then you need a water softener system. The reason is that, again, calcium and magnesium are joining forces to form a film on your dishes. This film remains long after the water has evaporated.
  • Do I have a lot of soap scum in my shower or tub? – Those two culprits – calcium and magnesium – are once again the cause. The result is soap that never seems to completely leave your tub.
