How Water Softeners Affect Plumbing Fixtures

Did you know that installing a water softener can make a big difference to the state of your plumbing fixtures?

Here, we’ve explained exactly how and why a water softener can impact your pipes and plumbing fixtures.

A water softener is a type of household water treatment system that addresses one of the biggest water quality issues: hard water.

Water softeners affect your plumbing fixtures by removing minerals – namely calcium and magnesium ions – that are responsible for mineral deposits.

These minerals are exchanged with sodium ions, which are unable to form scale buildup on your fixtures.

That means your sinks, faucets, toilets, shower heads and shower screens, and your appliances, like washing machines and hot water heater units.

Plus anything else hooked up to your plumbing system, won’t be damaged by mineral buildup.
