VP whole-house water conditioners reduce hardness, chlorine and chloramine often found in municipal water supplies. There are a range of benefits to reducing these substances throughout your home, from physical appearances to saving time and money. Here are some of the advantages of having a VP whole-house water conditioner.
1. Softer skin
Bathing in chlorinated water can cause dry skin. Soap scum from hard water can also cause irritated, dry skin. You’ll have softer skin when you reduce chlorine and remove hardness minerals from your water.
2. Silkier hair
When hard water meets soap, it forms a soap scum that is difficult to rinse off. This causes hair to look dull and dingy. When you shower with soft water, the soap washes away, leaving hair silky.
3. Save money on soaps and lotions
When combined with hard water, soap forms a curd instead of a lather. Soap lathers easily with soft water, so you don’t need to use as much. Since your skin won’t be so dry, you won’t need as much, if any, lotion.
4. Less time spent on housecleaning
By removing the hardness minerals, you reduce scale buildup. This means you won’t have to spend time scrubbing to try to remove all the buildup from your showers, sinks and other surfaces.
5. Save money on cleaning products
When cleaning with soft water, you won’t need to use as much soap or detergent. You also won’t need to buy cleaning products to remove scale buildup.
6. Virtually spot-free
Those annoying spots on your dishes, shower doors, fixtures and really anything water touches are caused by hardness minerals in your water. Removing these minerals virtually eliminates these unsightly spots.
7. Reduces soap scum
Since soap doesn’t easily rinse away with hard water, you’ll often see a ring of soap scum around your bathtub and sink. With softened water, the soap will simply wash down the drain.
8. Laundry looks better and lasts longer
Soap curd gets stuck between clothing fibers, and laundry can look dingy and yellow as a result. Also, chlorine can cause dyes to fade. Your clothing and linens will last longer if washed in conditioned water.
9. Plumbing and appliances last longer
Hardness minerals build up inside of pipes and appliances, causing damage and inefficiency. Chlorine dries out the rubber parts of your appliances, and they may need to be replaced more frequently. You can avoid these problems with a whole-house water conditioner.
10. Clean drinking water
Last but not least, you’ll have better tasting water from every tap in your home. Also, food and beverages prepared with water will taste better. Plus, no more bottled water needed!
