Each day in Bloomington, IL, you use water in countless ways. When you take a shower, you turn on the water. When you get thirsty, you run water. When it’s time to start dinner, you use water. We use water to wash our hands, clean our hair, tidy up our space, prepare food, and more. However, have you ever stopped to consider how clean your water is? The answer can be surprising in all the worst ways.

Why Water Quality Matters

Most Americans have access to treated water, but that does not guarantee that the water is safe. In fact, many Americans still have hard water. Hard water may be processed to remove some toxins, but it can still have high levels of metals or calcium. These metals have been scientifically linked to numerous health problems such as diabetes and neural diseases. This is why every homeowner should be aware of the state of their water.

How a Water Softener Can Help

One way to significantly address the risk of hard water is to use a water softener. A water softener processes water as it flows into your home to reduce the amount of calcium and metal. This is possible because the softener uses sodium to chemically neutralize the other elements in the water. All water runs through the device and is processed by the sodium ion before being released into the pipes for normal usage. Obviously, the processing tank needs to be replenished with fresh sodium on a regular basis, and the waste must be dealt with professionally from time to time. The overall effect can dramatically improve the water quality in your home.
