The difference between softened water versus hard water is a significant one that you can see immediately. Water softeners are one of the best home water treatment systems. Your skin will no longer have a film on it after you shower or bathe. Soaps or detergents will go further and produce more lather. Over time, you will see less soap scum on shower tiles and less staining around water faucets.

How Does a Water Softener System Work?
Whether your home has a water softener installed or you are thinking about getting one, you might be wondering just HOW a water softener works? Ion exchange or salt water softeners operate by binding negatively charged sodium, potassium or hydrogen resin to positively charged metal ions, drawing the hard minerals out of the water. Salt water softener systems are the most affordable and effective means to treat hard water in your home. We’ve designed this easy graphic to help explain the literal ins and outs of your water softener.
