Your plumbing will last longer. Hard water can cause a build up of scale from mineral deposits. Over time, pipes and fixtures can clog, water flow can diminish, and water pressure can be reduced. This doesn’t happen with soft water. Water Softener Systems are low in mineral content and therefore doesn’t leave deposits in the pipes.

Often it’s the result of minerals bonding with your soap to stick to your skin.
