Saving the amount of water you use at home is one of the most helpful ways to save money. As bills become more expensive, many of us are finding new ways to save our precious pennies; one way to do this is by reducing the amount of water we use. Not only can this greatly benefit our bank balance - but it can also improve the health of our environment, too. 


At Kinetico, our water softeners provide an effective solution to those suffering from the side effects of hard water and provide many benefits, such as limescale-free shower heads and taps, smoother skin and hair, reduced cleaning time, and better water quality, to name just a few. But did you know water softeners can help you save water?


In this blog, we will explore how water softeners can help to reduce and save the amount of water you use, allowing you to improve your finances and become a more sustainable, efficient, and environmentally-conscious household - which is something to be very proud of!

Better Lifespan of Appliances

Water softeners reduce the restricting accumulation of limescale on appliances, such as dishwashers and washing machines, allowing them to work freely, which requires less water. But, when hard water is involved, your appliances can’t work efficiently, and they end up using more water to accomplish their tasks. 

Shorter Shower and Bath Times

Soap cannot form an effective lather and is difficult to dissolve when it comes into contact with hard water, making it a challenge to rinse off. With hard water, you need to use more water to create a decent build-up of foam, for that desired clean feeling, and to rid yourself of the soap. However, water softeners improve the effectiveness of soaps, making them easier to wash off, which allows you to reduce your overall water usage.

Reduces Cleaning Times

Hard water contains high levels of calcium and magnesium, which leave behind stubborn, hard-to-remove mineral deposits which can build up in pipework, on shower heads and taps, glass surfaces, and even your dishes. Water softeners reduce these impurities in the water, preventing ‘soap scum’, thus, reducing the amount of time and water you use to clean your appliances. Cleaner surfaces mean less time scrubbing away - which no one enjoys, right?

More Efficient Water Heating

Water softeners prevent the build-up of mineral deposits inside boilers and other heating systems like radiators. These deposits create a layer of insulation that prevents them from heating up quickly, costing more energy and money. A water softener allows boilers to work more efficiently - heating water faster and decreasing the time spent running the tap while waiting for it to become hotter.

By installing a water softener in your household, you’re improving water quality and acting positively towards water conservation, reducing water waste, saving energy, and contributing to a more eco-friendly lifestyle.
