Article Summary: 

This article discusses the benefits of a water softener and how it works to remove minerals that cause hard water. Signs that indicate the need for a water softener include white chalky residue, spots on dishes, mineral stains on clothes, difficulty getting soap to form a lather, dry skin and hair, and lower water pressure. Water softeners connect directly to a home's water supply and use ion exchange to replace positively charged minerals with sodium or potassium ions. The article also provides tips on maintaining a water softener and offers a free water assessment from Enercare.
