How Hard is Your Water?
Why Should You Invest in a Water Softener?

Do your faucets drip after you turn them off? Feel like you’re spending a lot on plumbing? Perhaps you realized your skin hasn’t been the same since you moved into the new neighborhood? This is because the water is too hard! That is, it has an excess of minerals. There’s never a perfect time to install a water softener in your home.

What You Need to Know About Water Softeners
One of the most common questions people have is if a water softener is worth it. Instead of just telling you that a water softener is worth it, we’re going to give you all of the information you need to come to that conclusion yourself.
What Is Hard Water?
People use water softener because their water is hard. No, this doesn’t mean that the water has become a solid, so it’s hard. It means the water has high mineral content.
The mineral content in hard water is mainly composed of:
- Other minerals
When calcium and magnesium accumulate in the water, it begins to show up on whatever comes in contact with it. If you’ve ever seen stains in a sink or tub, that’s a sign of hard water. Clothes may start to yellow or turn a rusty color when they are washed in hard water. Washing the stains out of the sink and tub takes a lot of time, and replacing clothes means spending a lot of money. There’s also money wasted on the water bill because appliances need to work harder when using hard water.
So, that brings up two reasons why water softeners are worth it:
- It saves you money.
- It saves you time.
Most people will only look into water softener installers after they’ve already experienced the effects of hard water, so if that’s you, here’s how water softeners work.
How Water Softeners Work
Since hard work has a high level of minerals, the simple solution is to lower that level. Water softeners do just that. A whole-house filtration system removes hardness-causing calcium and magnesium from the water. This process is called “ion exchange.”
When hard water enters the water softener tank, it goes through spherical resin beads. The beads are made of polystyrene (plastic) and have a sodium ion negative charge. Since calcium and magnesium have a positive charge, they are attracted to the beads. The beads then pull the mineral ions from the water, leaving behind higher-quality water.
The resin beads are responsible for removing calcium and magnesium from hard water lose their charge over time. Part of the water softener system includes a brine tank that recharges the beads, so they can continue to work just as well as when the unit is installed.
More About Water Softening Systems
Main Components of a Water Softener
A water softener is an intelligent system. It’s made up of a control valve, a mineral tank, and a brine tank. Hard water enters the mineral tank to become softened, and then the control valve measures the amount of softened water that flows into the house. When the control valve hits its max in how much water has been softened, the brine tank goes to work to re-charge the resin beads, so it can continue to soften the water. Without the brine tank, the water softener would stop softening the water after a while.
Benefits of a Water Softener
- Everything washed with softened water looks cleaner, and shiny items look shinier.
- Skin and hair feel smooth and look cleaner.
- It reduces soap scum on showers and tubs.
- Soap and shampoo don’t need as much water to form a lather.
- Clothes and other fabrics feel softer, and soft water preserves their integrity to last longer.
- Soft water preserves the life of appliances as well, such as coffee makers, dishwashers, washers, water heaters, etc.
- Since appliances don’t have to work so hard to combat the hard water, you save money on your water and electric bill.
Living with hard water can be quite frustrating. Living with soft water is freeing. You no longer have to worry about how hard water is affecting your skin, hair, clothes, blankets, appliances, or anything the water comes in contact with each day. A water softener just makes life much easier AND saves money.
At this point, you’re likely wondering how much water softener costs and if that cost is offset by the money saved.
How Much Water Softeners Cost
The cost of a water softener depends on how big the house is because bigger houses often use more water. The more water a house uses, the bigger the water softener has to be to handle that much water. The price range for a water softener is $400 to $1,000. A water softener installer can charge anywhere between $500 to $2,000 for installation.
As you can see, the price range is wide, so the best way to know how much you can expect to pay for a water softener is by contacting us for an estimate. We work with true water softener experts and can help you decide on the best water softener system for your house.
How Long Does a Water Softener Last?
The lifespan of a water softener is approximately 15 years, but they can last longer, depending on much it had to work over the years.
Signs a water softener needs replacing are:
- Staining on clothes and sinks
- Soaps and shampoos don’t lather up as easily
- Skin and hair may feel dryer and look dull
- Laundered fabric isn’t as soft as it used to be, or you need to use more fabric softener to achieve the same softness.
The signs you need to replace a water softener are usually obvious, even though they may develop over time. Many people ask a water softener expert to assess their unit as it gets closer to the 15-year mark to identify whether it’s time for a replacement.

Hard water in Allen and North Dallas, TX
Imagine living in a home with soft water — a home where you don’t need to worry about your clogged appliances or having weird films on your dishes. What difference could this make to your home and wellbeing?
Hard water is responsible for clogged pipes in the home. Without any knowledge of this, you’re probably spending a lot of money on repairs.
Hardness in water is caused by magnesium and calcium ions that form insoluble compounds. There are many ways to soften water. They include Softening, De-Ionization, Aeration, ion exchange, Reverse Osmosis, and Distillation.
How does water softeners work?
Water softeners replace hardness ions like magnesium and calcium with sodium or non-scaling ions. Once these ions are removed, your family will enjoy the benefits of soft water.
Water Softening Benefits
After installation, here is what you’ll notice with our whole home water softening system.
Preservation of your Plumbing System
A whole-home water softener can help to eliminate mineral buildup as hard water moves down the drains. With improved water flow, you’ll use less water and this will translate into smaller utility bills and reduce your carbon footprint.
Softer Skin and Hair
Hard water might be responsible for your skin and hair problems. You may notice your hair feels light and your skin looks dry and potentially irritated. Soft water helps your hair maintain its color and condition longer. It balances your hair’s moisture level, so you’re left with smooth, silky hair after every wash.
Soft water makes your soap work better and removes the pore-clogging soap scum on your skin.
Spend Less Time Cleaning
Soft water helps you clean better, and save time and energy. With a properly installed water softener, you can enjoy more time with your family. You will notice that your showers and tubs are no longer covered in soap scum. Clothes are cleaner and brighter after every wash. Saving money has never been easier.

Frequently Asked Questions About Water Softening Systems
Do I need to soften my water?
Installing a water softener is a personal choice but it can impact your home and the environment positively. You might need a water softener to ensure your appliances are running well and to improve the look, taste, or smell of your water.
How Does A Water Softener Work?
Water Softeners work like magnets. The magnesium and calcium, which are hard ions combine with resin beads that hold the sodium ion. When the hard ions combine with the resin beads, sodium is released into the water. Then the hard ions detach from the resin beads and drain along with the salt.
What are the health effects of home softening?
Hard water does not have any serious health consequences but we advise that you consult a doctor about drinking softened water if you or someone you know has a history of high blood pressure.
Why does soft water feel slimy or slick in the shower?
The minerals in hard water react with soap to form scum that does not dissolve in water. This reaction reduces the effectiveness of the soap. With a water softener system in place, sodium gets introduced into the water and allows cleansing agents to perform their functions. This will reduce the amount of soap needed to wash an item whether it is clothes, glass, hair, or skin.
There is still odor in my water. Why is that?
The primary function of a water softener is to eliminate hardness and prevent clogs in appliances, it will not remove pre-existing smells of well water.
Where can I install a water softener?
The best place to install a water softener is the point where water enters the home. However, our expert installer will recommend where best to install the water softener in your home.
What is the quality of water in Dallas?
Dallas has hard water that has high mineral content. The City of Dallas publishes information about the overall water quality in Dallas.
