Hard water contains minerals such as calcium and magnesium. About 85% of the water in the United States is considered hard water.
Conversely, soft water has little or no calcium or magnesium. Soft water is either naturally occurring or can be converted using water treatment equipment such as a water softener. According to the article, there are many advantages and savings with a water softener.
“Softened water reduces the need for detergent by more than 50 percent because it doesn’t contain the minerals that interact with the cleaning products. Washing in the cold water setting instead of the hot water setting achieves the same or better stain removal compared to results in hard water, according to a 2011 study conducted by the Scientific Services S/D Inc, a New York-based laboratory focused on testing laundry detergents.”
Aqua Soft Water Systems offers many different water softeners to help combat the effects of hard water. Kinetico Premier Series 2060 softener usually covers most well water applications and the Kinetico Premier Series 4040 Carbon Softener is usually best for municipal supplies.
