March 23, 2017

False: A water softener doesn’t use as much energy as you might expect. 

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 it won’t wake you up). Most new softeners regenerate only when you need them to, thus, the water and energy use are optimized. How many times do you think a water softener will run for an average family of four?

Myth No. 2: Softened water & your skin

Myth No. 2: Softened water leaves a film on your skin because something has been added to your water.

In addition, those soaps, shampoos and shower gels will suds up faster. After your shower in soft water, you are actually much cleaner than when you shower in hard water.
