Installing A Water Softener In Your Home Improves Your Water Quality.

A water softener is an investment appropriate for all homes with hard water, even those in cities. While municipalities treat city water for bacteria, they are not required to soften water. Hard water is water containing high levels of minerals that can affect your water’s taste, feel, and have an impact on dishes and laundry. While systems are often more complex, the simple explanation of the process is softened water minimizes hard minerals through ion exchange. The resulting water is easier on your skin, tastes better, and will not mar your dishes and the surfaces in your home.

When Should I Consider A Water Softener For My Home?

There are many reasons you should consider a water softener for your home. Some are aesthetic and some promote your overall health and wellness. Here are a few reasons we recommend water softeners:

  • Healthier Skin. Hard water can strip moisture from your skin, leaving it feeling dry and rough. Softened water helps skin stay soft and supple. This is especially helpful for those suffering from eczema and psoriasis.
  • Softer Hair. For the same reason hard water affects your skin, it can also affect your hair. Enjoy softer, shinier hair with a water softener.
  • Crystalline Dishes. Hard water often etches glasses, leaving a foggy residue after washing.
  • Cleaner Clothing. Hard water suds-up detergents and is less effective at rinsing those soaps from clothing, leading to a buildup over time.


If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, a water softener might be just the thing to minimize their effects. Bring a water sample into May Supply to confirm the hardness of your water and we’ll put together a quote on the system that works best for your home.
