Truth be told, using a water softener where water enters the home is a viable and cost effective solution to eliminating hard water issues. Emily Arthurs from Morton Salt® sat down with Designing Spaces to shatter eight misconceptions about water softeners. The bottom line, your water softener is the only appliance in your household that will protect all other water using appliances.

For a true understanding of what a water softener could do for a home plagued with hard water problems, watch this portion of Designing Spaces!
Hard Water Myths, Soft Water Facts
Get the facts about how soft water and a water softener can change your home and life.
Do you have “hard” water? You may if you see mineral build up on a glass shower door, soap scum, water spotting on dishes or clothing that looks dull.
There are other effects over time that age appliances like dish washers and water heaters — and that can be tough on a home – and a wallet!
It is possible to soften your water. First, you’ll need to install a water softener, whose positive effects can make for a more comfortable and cost efficient household.
Emily Arthurs from Morton® Salt sat down with Designing Spaces in a recent episode to shatter seven misconceptions about water softeners.
Myth: By removing the hard water minerals from water you with a softener, you will deprive your body of the healthy nutrients such as calcium and magnesium.
Fact: The calcium and magnesium found in hard water is inorganic, meaning that it can’t be digested. If your body needs calcium and magnesium, eat the right foods or use dietary supplement.
Myth: Softened water leaves a film on your skin because something has been added to your water.
Fact: It’s true that your skin will feel softer after a shower with soft water because your body’s natural oils are able to stay your skin’s surface. You will use less soaps and shampoos, because they will lather faster. After a shower in soft water, you are actually cleaner than when you shower with hard water. It’s hard water that leaves a film on your skin and hair.
Morton recommends using salt — no, not standard table salt, we’re talking water softening salt pellets! Most of the eastern part of the United States, for example, has high iron in their water supply. Morton recommends their green bag product, Rust Remover, for these areas.
The yellow bag is their patented formula salt pellets, System Saver® II Patented Water Softening Pellets that work with your pellets to keep the resin beads working longer, saving you money in the long run!
Salt Pellets help your softener run at peak performance, cleaner and longer, and keep soft water flowing through your home.
