Water Conditioning can Help Extend the Life of Your Appliances

Water ConditioningHomeowners typically invest in water conditioning technology as a solution for aesthetic issues, but they’re often pleasantly surprised to find out that their water conditioner can also help extend the lifespans of their water-using appliances. Additionally, water conditioners can even make these appliances more efficient for day-to-day use, producing better results with less soap or detergent.

Prior to conditioning, water can contain several hardness minerals, including calcium and magnesium. These minerals tend to build up in the pipes of water-using appliances, including:

  • Dishwashers
  • Clothing washers
  • Ice makers
  • Coffee makers
  • Water heaters

Hard water buildup can cause the appliances to wear down faster, break more frequently, and even work less efficiently. When faced with these issues, homeowners often try to remedy the problems by adding more soaps and detergents, or repeating cycles with the appliances. However, because this doesn’t address the underlying issue of water hardness, it still yields unsatisfactory results.

Designed to replace hardness minerals with less damaging “softness” ions, water conditioning systems can provide a better solution. Conditioned water doesn’t create the same stubborn scaling in pipes and appliances that unconditioned water does, which in turn eliminates clogs and break-downs related to scale buildup. Homeowners can often get several additional years of use out of their appliances by investing in a water conditioning unit.

Additionally, conditioned water gets better results from cleaning products. With a conditioner, homeowners can use less dishwashing soap or laundry detergent per cycle, and still get sparkling glassware and soft linens.
