There are many reasons to reduce the hardness of your water with a water softener. Clothes washed in hard water appear dingy, may exhibit a sour smell and can be scratchy to the touch. Dishes and glasses will spot more easily. Bathing can leave a soap film on your skin that can hamper the removal of dirt and bacteria. The most important thing to remember is purchasing a "quality" softener and having it serviced properly by professionals. That's where All Klear can help.

A salt based softener will make sure that minerals like calcium and magnesium will be completely removed before you even turn on your faucet. This will stop you from having to deal with those annoying lime-scale build-ups that seem to stick to everything like glue. The water based appliances in your home will last longer, and your plumbing will thank you for it too.
These units are generally less expensive to buy than their salt based counterparts. If you don't like the idea of using chemicals to soften the water in your home, a salt free conditioner can be the answer you're looking for. This type of softener will neutralize contaminants like calcium and magnesium so they don't stick to surfaces instead of removing them from your water. They are incredibly easy to install.
The energy required to run a water softener over the course of one year is the same as what an alarm clock uses in a year, which is about 70 kWh, or less than $10 per year based on US average energy rates (and without that annoying beep). Most new softeners regenerate only when you need them to, so water and energy use are optimized. For an average family of four, the water softener runs fewer than five times a month.
