What are the Benefits of Soft Water?

Have you ever experienced soft water? If not, it is wonderful and if you have experienced soft water you may have noticed how soft and smooth your skin and hair feel after showering in soft water.
Soft water is free from calcium and magnesium.  Moderatley hard water containing these two minerals can cause hovoc on dishwashers, washing machines and cause build up your hot water tanks. Hard water can also cause spots on fixtures and glasses. Perhaps one of the biggest conerns is how hard water can irritate certain skin conditions including eczema and psoriasis, causing painful inflammation. Studies show that water testing at just 100mg/l of hardness (6 grains per gallon) can have a major impact on your skin. Hard water also strips your hair of natural oils causing hair to become dry and fizzy. If you have your hair coloured or highlighted hard water will also impact the longevity of the colour. 
So what can you do? First we recommend having your water tested by a trusted source. Water Superstore offers comlimenatry testing for water hardness. Once the level of hardness is determined, we can recommend the correct size water softener for your unique needs.
