Drain Doctor can supply and fit a tap under your kitchen sink so that you can enjoy great tasting water at the flick of a tap.

Depending on where you live, hard water could be a real issue for you. It can affect numerous aspects of your life from the taste of your water, to your daily beauty routine to the longevity of your appliances.

If you live in an area where hard water is a problem, investing in a water softener or filter could be life-changing. 

Protecting your plumbing system

Over time, hard water will leave mineral build up, mainly limescale, in your plumbing system. Eventually this will cause blockages and can limit the water flow. Reduce these minerals flowing through your pipes will help to protect them.

Lengthen the life of your appliances

Each of your appliances that uses water can be helped by fitting a water softener. This is especially true with the water heater which can quickly become built up with minerals, causing it to stop working.

Hot water is essential for your shower, dishwasher, washing machine and other functions around the home. You can lengthen the life of these appliances not only by investing in soft water but by cleaning them on a regular basis.  

Save some money!

You’d be surprised how much you spend each month on body soap, shampoo, washing up liquid and soap powder. When using these products with hard water, it takes a lot more to get the job done as the lather is less. Soft water gives all of your washing products better lather and cleaning power, allowing you to use less at a time. This means you’ll save money by reducing the amount you need to use.

Hard water is also more drying on the skin and can give rise to more eczema or skin dryness, so a softener can help you maintain a healthier skin

A water softener can bring many positive benefits to your home. Take advantage of these, saving you money, lengthening the life of your appliances, and helping to keep your skin healthy by calling your local Drain Doctor and asking about fitting your home with a water filters or softener.
