How Much Do Water Softeners Cost?

Statistics on Potential Savings with Water Softeners and R.O. Systems
The Turner family is enjoying their new life with soft water and clean drinking water. They’re also stashing away extra cash thanks to the improvements these solutions provide.
In the Bathroom
The lack of suds in hard water means you could be using more soap and shampoo than needed. But, soft water is perfect for the shower, producing a luxurious lather. The Turners are saving more than $90 a year thanks to their new water softener.
In the Laundry Room
Hard water in the washing machine is a big problem. It wears out fabrics faster and leads to using too much detergent to get clothes clean. But, a Water Quality Association (WQA) study found soft water is 100-times better at removing stains form laundry. That’s why the Turners are saving more than $157 a year in this area.
From the Kitchen Sink
Homes that purchase drinking water in plastic bottles stand to experience significant savings after installing an R.O. system, which provides pure, clean water with great taste that rivals any bottled water, directly from your faucet. By completely removing bottled water from their shopping list, the Turners save $400 a year.
From the water heater in your basement to the dishwasher in your kitchen, high-efficiency appliances run better and last longer with soft water. The Turners are saving $100 per year in utility bills thanks to a more-efficient water heater. They’ll also avoid replacing other appliances earlier than expected.
Whether it’s detergent, glass cleaner, or any other household cleaning product, you’ll use less product with soft water because it works so well while cleaning. On the other hand, hard water causes house cleaning headaches, leaving limescale and soap scum behind. That means you’ll be scrubbing more often and using more cleaning product. The Turners are saving an estimated $420 per year on cleaning products, and their home never looked so good!
