(ARA) – If you find yourself spending too much time on household chores and not enough time with your family, there’s a simple solution that can make your life easier: use softened water.
Hard water forms when naturally occurring minerals enter water sources; it is very common in this country. Eighty-five percent of the geography in the United States has hard water according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
Installing a water softener in your home can greatly reduce the natural hard minerals found in water. Inside the water softener, salt pellets are used to charge thousands of tiny resin beads with sodium ions. As hard water moves over the resin beads, the minerals are replaced with sodium ions, creating soft water.
While the joys of soft water greatly outweigh the maintenance of a water softener, one task most people dread is replenishing the softener pellets. Carrying bags of salt to the water softener has always been a chore, but Diamond Crystal makes that chore easier with a two-handled bag. Compared to other brands’ single rigid handle, the Diamond Crystal two-handled bag makes it more comfortable to change the salt. Simple instructions are printed in English and Spanish. And the product works in any water softener.
