Hard water affects a number of things, including how clean your clothes are and whether or not your dishwasher leaves spots on your glasses. Bathing in hard water can also make your hair dull and skin dry over time. Your water heater and showerhead can have lime deposits inside them that will affect how well they function. All of these problems can easily be eliminated by having water softeners installed in your home.
Average water softener costs will depend a great deal on their capacity. The capacity you need is determined by the number of people in your family. Quality water softeners tend to cost more than basic models do, but will also last longer and require fewer repairs over their lifetime. If you're not sure about using a water softener long term, consider renting one for a short period of time so you can try it out before investing a great deal of money.

Q. Why should I install a water softener system?
A. “Hard water” is generally not harmful to our health (aside from leading to dry skin), but can cause a number of problems. The excess of minerals like magnesium, iron and calcium can cause scale to form which clogs pipes and can shorten the life of electrical appliances like your washing machine, dishwasher, kettle and iron. The scale can also damage your hot water heater and make it less efficient (leading to higher electricity bills). Other problems include scale build up on faucets, tiles, and other surfaces near the water supply.
Q. How do I find out the hardness of my water?
A. The best way is by contacting your local water utility company, as they are required to provide you with this information. Living in UK, chances are you do have very hard water, as most areas here have a high mineral content in the water. There may be other signs such as calcium deposits on your dishes or hard water stains on your bathtub.
