Is A Water Softener Good for Your Health?

woman drinking waterAre you sick and tired of hard water? In this post, we will learn more about the health benefits of a water softener, which is a popular solution to hard water.  In fact, hard water is a very common problem in the US and especially Florida.

A water softener is used to treat hard water. It does this by removing tiny crushed rock particles, which are mostly calcium and magnesium.


Here are some of the potential health benefits of using a water softener:

Skin and Hair Care

Soft water, resulting from the removal of minerals, can be gentler on the skin and hair. It may help reduce dryness, irritation, and itching that can be caused by hard water. Soft water allows soaps and shampoos to lather more effectively. This can lead to a more satisfying shower experience and promotes healthier skin and hair.

Reduced Sensitivity for Skin Conditions

Individuals with certain skin conditions, such as eczema or dry skin, may find that soft water is less harsh and irritating compared to hard water. While water softeners do not cure these conditions, the absence of minerals in soft water may provide some relief and minimize discomfort.

Cleaner and Softer Laundry

Soft water enhances the effectiveness of laundry detergents, leading to cleaner and softer clothes. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals with sensitive skin or those prone to skin allergies, as residual detergent on clothing can potentially trigger skin reactions.

Reduced Dependency on Harsh Cleaning Products

Soft water reduces the formation of soap scum and limescale, making it easier to clean bathtubs, showers, sinks, and other surfaces. With soft water, you may find that you need fewer cleaning products or can use milder alternatives, minimizing exposure to potentially harsh chemicals.

Improved Appliance Lifespan

Hard water’s mineral buildup can negatively affect the efficiency and lifespan of household appliances such as water heaters, washing machines, and dishwashers. By using a water softener, you can help reduce scale formation and prolong the lifespan of these appliances. This indirectly contributes to environmental health by reducing electronic waste.

While the above benefits can be associated with water softeners, it’s important to note that the primary purpose of a water softener is to address hard water issues. To address and remove contaminants to provide healthier drinking water, consider a reverse-osmosis system.
