How Water Softeners Can Save You Money

How Water Softeners Can Save You Money

One study estimated that hard water can cost homeowners around $800 per year. Here are a few of the hard water costs that can add up:

  • hard water cost
  • Extra Soap or Detergent Used
  • Heating Loss in the Home Due to Scale
  • Replacing Clothes and Other Washables More Frequently
  • Repairing and Replacing Plumbing and Appliances More Frequently

When a water softener is installed, though, you are able to wash things with less soap and detergent, and scale and buildup are no longer a concern. While hard water may seem like more of a nuisance than anything else, it can really hit the wallet hard.

Having a water softener installed can help alleviate and eliminate all of those concerns though. Even with the cost of the device, installation, and water softener salt, the savings add up quickly over time–along with peace of mind.
