Water softeners are designed to remove minerals from a home's water supply that can cause problems with plumbing fixtures, laundry, drinking water and more. Hard water contains excessive deposits of calcium and magnesium carbonates causing a range of problems, including:
Spotting on dishes and cutlery
Streaking on shower doors and plumbing fixtures
Reduced effectiveness of laundry detergents and soaps
Faucets and shower heads that clog, reducing water flow
Clothes that look dull and feel less soft
Skin that feels drier and less clean
Today's home water softeners can solve all these problems cost-effectively with little maintenance. Have questions about whether a water softener can help in your home? Give Ostrom a call. Water treatment specialists will analyze your home's water and recommend solutions for a cleaner, better tasting water.
