The Budgeting Benefits of a Salt-Free Water Softener

89% of families in America have hard water. This means that the water has high levels of magnesium and calcium that cause problems in the home. While usually safe to drink and use, hard water leads to scale build-up in plumbing and appliances, including dishwashers and hot water heaters, which can make it difficult to effectively clean clothes and dishes.

The bottom line: Hard water costs you money.

By installing a high quality Pelican Salt-Free Water Softener, you’ll see the benefits in your budget, especially if your water has more than seven grains of hardness. Consider the following:

  • Appliance repair savings: Hard water scale occurs when the dissolved minerals in water are precipitated out as the water is warmed. These minerals will bond themselves to the interior surfaces of your appliances, including the pipes and tanks that heat the water. Over years, scale can block the pipes and impede water flow. A water heater with hard water will need to be replaced more quickly than one using soft water. And soft water can reduce water heating bills by 30%.
  • Saving on cleaning: Detergents do not work as well with hard water, so many homeowners are forced to spend more on shower cleaners, color enhancers, and detergent. People who use salt-free water softeners discover that they can cut these costs by up to 50%.
  • Fixture savings: A showerhead can lose 75% of the flow rate after two years of use. A water softener can make increase the lifespan of plumbing and bathroom fixtures.
  • Energy savings: Our salt-free water softeners use no electricity, so soft water can be enjoyed without increasing the electrical bill. Soft water also allows appliances to run more efficiently which can further decrease costs.
  • Home value: If a home has serious hard water problems, the effects can be seen in the sinks, showers, and appliances. This can negatively affect the value of your home when it comes time to sell.
