About Me

Hiring and Communicating with a Home Cleaning Service

Thanks for stopping by my website. My name is Annabelle Collins. My husband and I live in a large house with our two teenage children. We’re fortunate in that we’re able to have a cleaning service come and clean on a weekly basis. In the past, I found that it was difficult for me to exert myself when it came to hiring and communicating with our cleaning service. I’ve never been very authoritative, and that shone through in a not good way. I wanted things to be done in a certain way, but found it difficult to ask for what I wanted. I have come to realize that in order for the service to do the job I want to be done, I have to ask for it to happen. I doubt that I’m alone in the fact that this is difficult, and want to share my experience and growth.

Why Salt Free Water Softeners Are So Great

by Vicki Burns

You may not realize when you have hard water in your home. If you have always lived in homes with hard water, then you may think spots on clean glasses, calcium build up on faucets, and that squeaky clean sound you hear when you just get out of the shower and rub your hand on your skin are normal things. However, this is not true, and all of those things are indicators of hard water. Hard water also comes with many other little goodies, such as damaging your appliances with calcium buildup, calcium rings around the water level in the toilet, and damage to the inner workings of plumbing apparatuses and fixtures. If you now realize you have hard water, then you will want to read this to learn why a salt free water softener may be a good choice.

What water softeners with salt means

Water softeners that make use of salt means needing to add salt on a regular basis. When the salt is added, it is added in large increments, such as 50 pound bags and that can really add up because this will be a regular expense you need to take on.

You will also be wasting quite a bit of water when you have a water softener that uses salt. The reason this happens is due to the water softener needing to be backwashed. If you live in an area where water consumption is a serious issue, then this can push you over the allowed usage and lead to you taking on fines.

What salt free water softeners offer

Salt free water softeners are very efficient and will help you get softer water without raising your utility bills, since they require no electricity and don't waste water the way the other softeners do.

When you choose a salt free water softener, you also get to take advantage of the added benefit of being able to fit it in a very small space, unlike the salt based units. The fact that the salt free units are so compact can be an important feature in homes where space is limited.

When using a salt free water softener system, you aren't going to have the added worry about taking in more salt if you or one of your household members is on a low-sodium diet for health reasons. The salt free systems also don't use other chemicals, along with also not using salt.

When you choose to go with a salt free water softener in your home, you will get all of the above benefits while softening your water, enjoying healthier water, and keeping your bills low.
