Water is water, right?

It’s transparent and it flows from taps. We drink it. We wash in it. And we clean with it.

It’s all much of a muchness, surely?

Well, that’s where you’d be mistaken. There’s a world of difference in water types – primarily to do with whether it’s hard or soft. The softer the water, the further it goes – especially when it comes to cleaning. Not only that. If you clean surfaces with hard water, the likelihood is that it will leave marks and stains on sinks and shower screens. It doesn’t matter whether you are working with porcelain or chrome, granite or corian, stainless steel or glass, you’ll always find it tougher to achieve a clean and shiny looking finish with hard water because of the mineral deposits that are present in unsoftened water.

It’s these deposits which leave their mark – literally – wherever you wipe. But soft water is an entirely different proposition. When you clean with softened water, staining and water marks won’t appear – because there’s nothing in the water to make them appear in the first place. Consequently, your surfaces will keep that “good as new” look for much longer.

Water softeners ensure household cleaners last longer

Not only will it take less time and effort to keep your kitchen and bathroom in pristine condition, you’ll also quickly discover with soft water that you won’t need to use nearly as many cleaning materials to achieve the required effect. With hard water, you have to work a lot harder to maintain a decent lather – if it’s even possible to get one at all – so, you’ll be needing to squeeze more from the bottle each time you clean.

Soft water is far more sympathetic with the Dettol, Cif, Mr Muscle, or any other brand name products you might be using.

As a result, you’ll save money on your staple, everyday household cleaners, whether it be soap, shampoo, shower gels, kitchen and bathroom cleaners, disinfectants or disinfectants.

There are so many reasons why it’s good to have a water softener installed in your home – cutting back on the hassle and cost of cleaning is one of them.
