Do I need a water softener? What you MUST know before buying one.

Have you ever asked yourself the question, “Do I need a water softener?” According to the Water Quality Association, 85% of the country has hard water. If you’re not sure if you have hard water running in your home, one simple way is to look at your faucets and shower heads. Look for calcium and lime buildup on the aerators, if you see a white chalky substance, then that’s a clear sign you have hard water. Clogged shower heads are a clear indication that you may have some calcium buildup, which in turn will lessen the water pressure and volume coming out.

The best way to find out the severity of the water’s hardness, consider performing a Total Hardness Test. Strips and chemical-based tests can be purchased at many home improvement stores or online. Both tests will require a small sample of water. The strips and chemical-based test will turn a certain color to determine the total hardness of the water.
