|A water softener is a piece of equipment which treats the tap water in your home in order to reduce its hard mineral content. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the water in a majority of residential homes is actually hard water. Unless the water is treated, it can lead to a variety of problems in the course of being utilized for common household needs ranging from running the wash to using appliances to taking a shower. Hard water is tough on the plumbing in the home and can lead to the build-up of deposits and clogs. Consequently, a water softener can, in the long run, both reduce costs and improve the quality of life in a home.|
