Soft water on kitchen sinks and taps

Thursday, April 30, 2020

Why are water softeners good for kitchen taps and sinks?
If you live in a hard water area and you have a stylish, black sink – or any shade
other than white for that matter - it isn’t going to stay looking nice and clean
for long, if it is continually being subjected to hard water landing on it. The
darker the colour of your units, the more the defects will show up. When
you’ve just had a lovely new kitchen fitted or upgraded, what could be more
The only way round this is to have a water softener installed – or to devote
more time to cleaning, which can be a complete chore!
The water softener will remove all the magnesium and calcium, the minerals in
hard water that produce all those unsightly, scaly deposits that build up around
sinks and taps. Without a water softener, in hard water areas like Sussex,
Hampshire and Surrey, wherever you have running water in your home,
limescale is a fact of life and it will keep coming back.
The water softener will ensure your kitchens and bathrooms will stay looking in
tip-top condition for longer. Meaning you needn’t spend so much time – and
money – on cleaning!
