Hard water causes a scale barrier to form on your hot water boiler's heating element, so the heater is less efficient and consumes more power, therefore more expensive bills.
Increased Appliances Lifespan

Where is this system installed?This system can be installed in your garage or on the side of the house. It is up to your personal preference and what will work best for your property. The plumber can assist you in the decision when quoting your install.
How does a water softener work?Water softeners work using ion exchange. Man made resin beads that have a high affinity for both calcium and magnesium ions are pre-loaded with sodium ions. When hard minerals pass through the resin, the calcium and magnesium are attracted to the resin and the sodium is released. So its swapping one thing for another.
