Chances are cleaning the bathroom isn’t your favorite chore. Here in Odessa and Midland, hard water can make that task even more difficult. That’s because minerals like iron and calcium build-up and stain your faucets, pipes, and showerheads. The longer you go in between cleaning, the tougher it will be to remove! The buildup can even damage the finish on your sinks and fixtures, making for expensive repair/replacement. In this post, we share a solution to prevent that build-up, keeping your faucets sparkling without constant cleaning!


The permanent solution to all your hard water problems is a water softener. If you have a water softener and are still getting that crystal buildup on your showerheads, chances are it’s time for a new one. Water softeners are an important appliance in your home because they help protect many of your other appliances that use water! Those same mineral deposits that stick to your faucets can clog up your dishwasher or washing machine, too! Here’s a look at a few more advantages of water softeners:

  • Softer water means better-tasting water.
  • Softer water means softer clothes, straight out of the dryer.
  • Softer water means fewer water spots on your dishes.
  • Softer water means healthier skin and hair after bathing.

If these advantages, combined with a cleaner bathroom and kitchen, and longer-lasting appliances don’t convince you that you need a water softener, maybe this will: saving money! Many of the advantages listed come with the added bonus of long-term savings on appliances, clothes, even the cost of bottled water. Consider the damage that hard water does:

  • Shorter life span of your washing machine, refrigerator, dishwasher, and hot water heater.
  • Damaging mineral buildup on faucets and fixtures.
  • Damaging mineral buildup on pipes that you won’t even notice until it’s too late.
