Anyone living in a home with hard water knows the effects—mineral deposits on shower stalls, sinks and around faucets, using large amounts of detergent for laundry, and white deposits on glassware and plates. The remedy: Morton water softener. Many homes are using water softeners, but are they properly maintained? Emily Arthurs from Morton Salt visits Lisa and Bill to explain how their water softener works, and what should be done to keep it working properly.
The return of hard water is a common problem, and is usually the result of not replacing the salt used as part of the water softening process. Emily gives them tips and advice on getting the most out of their water softener, including the use of Morton® System Saver® II Water Softening Pellets.
It’s Not Hard to Have Soft Water with Morton Water Softener
How do you know if you are living in a home with hard water?
If you notice scaling on shower stalls, sinks and around faucets, white deposits on glassware and plates, and need lots of soap and shampoo to get a good lather you may be experiencing the effects of hard water in your house. Calcium and magnesium, the minerals typically responsible for making water “hard” can affect your entire household.
Did you know….?
- Hard water can leave a film or residue on any surface that water touches. Leaving your hair and skin feeling dry. Towels and clothes aren’t as soft, and need to be replaced more frequently.
- Calcium, magnesium, and iron in water builds up in the home’s pipes and appliances, increasing your household energy consumption and damaging appliances.
These are typical symptoms that your water softener is not doing its job, and the reason may be the homeowner. The remedy is a water softener. Even though a home may be using one the next important question is it properly maintained on a regular basis?
That’s where Morton steps in, with some salt — no, not standard table salt, we’re talking water softening salt pellets! Morton® System Saver® II Patented Water Softening Pellets are used in a water softener to help your softener run at peak performance — cleaner and longer* — and keep soft water flowing through your home.
Not all water softening salt is the same! Morton’s enhanced water softening salt pellets can perform better than plain salt alone. The pellet form of water softening salt can be more efficient than crystals, and it helps by preventing mushing from occurring in the softener tank.
