Undergoing a home renovation can be an equally exciting and stressful time. It’s always satisfying to make some much-needed updates around your home, but it’s often a costly undertaking. It’s essential to ensure that everything has been completed correctly and you’re getting the most out of your home improvements.

Are you experiencing the uncomfortable effects of  hard water in your home? If you have hard water,
problems you may be experiencing are;  lackluster showers and baths with next to no
soapy lather resulting in soap scum left behind  on your skin and hair, laundry that appears dull,
dingy and feels stiff, difficulty cleaning  because of scale buildup on shower doors
and sinks, dishes that may be left with spots and  a thin filmy residue after washing, excess scale
on your water-consuming appliances and fixtures  shortening their lifespan. A water softener will
help to remove the hard minerals from your  water, making it more enjoyable to bathe in
without noticeable soap scum left on your skin and  hair. Save your favorite clothes with brighter,
softer, cleaner laundry and with less scale  buildup. You’ll spend less time cleaning with
the Reliance Water Softener. You may also get  better performance out of your plumbing fixtures,
pipes and appliances like your dishwasher,  coffee maker and humidifier. Reliance Water
Softeners are certified to NSF standards and are  professionally installed by our licensed plumbers.
Our water softeners offer high-quality performance  that come with lower maintenance requirements.

When Buying a New Home, Ask about the Water

When you’re looking at making changes to your house, it’s important to factor in your home’s water. When completing a renovation, the last thing you want is to pick out brand new appliances, only to find out your hard water is potentially reducing their lifespan. A water softener can help combat some of these issues and help you to get the most out of your appliances.

Water Softener Benefits for Your Kitchen Reno

A water softener can reduce scale build-up in your water-consuming appliances and fixtures by reducing the hard minerals in your water. This will help to ensure that your appliances continue to operate at their peak efficiency. With fewer spots being left on your drinking glasses and dishes, you may also find that you’re more satisfied with your dishwasher.

Water Softener Benefits for Your Laundry Reno

Adding or replacing your water softener should also be considered if you plan to update your laundry machine during your renovation. The hard minerals in your home’s water can cause your clothing to feel stiff, and softening the water could help you get more out of your new laundry appliances and leave your clothes feeling softer.

Water Softener Benefits for Your Bathroom Reno

If you are renovating your bathroom, you shouldn’t have to shy away from your dream of a glass shower and chrome faucets just because you’re worried about constantly cleaning hard water stains. Likewise, when you’ve spent your hard-earned money on the perfect fixtures, you want to make sure they last!

A water softener will help remove the hard minerals in your water that cause build-up on your shower door, sink, faucet and showerhead, potentially reducing the amount of time you need to spend cleaning. With less scale build-up, you may also find that those perfect plumbing fixtures you spent time picking out need to be replaced less often – potentially saving you money!
