As you know, at Nostresol we are committed to the technologies that make your home more sustainable and environmentally friendly. Last week we talked about two clean energies to heat the water, today we tell you the benefits of soft water at home.
Water hardness. What is soft water?
Hardness is the sum of calcium, magnesium, strontium and barium ions in the form of carbonate or bicarbonate. The chemical composition of the water and its content in the salts of the aforementioned ions depends on the soil from which they come.
Therefore, soft water is one that has a low concentration of these ions, which has a positive impact on many household chores.
Benefits of descaling
Descaling is a process by which water is treated to remove calcium, magnesium and other ion salts previously named to make the water softer. Some of the benefits of this technology are as follows:
- Skin benefits: Soft water helps prevent dry skin and prevents irritation by removing soap without leaving residue.
- Protection of installations and appliances: soft water does not damage the pipes, boilers, thermos, accumulators or radiators of our home. As well as the main appliances that use water.
- More effective cleaning: In both personal hygiene and washing clothes, soft water better removes waste and causes greater softness in washing.
- Energy efficiency and savings: In addition to saving on cleaning products, descaling helps the proper functioning of your home’s facilities and appliances. Making their lives long.
