A water softener in our homes is no longer a luxury, but a daily necessity. Although there is no shortage of skeptics asking about the sense of installing a softener only for cold water, the answer is unequivocal - yes, it makes sense. In this article, we'll explain why.

Understand water hardness

To understand why cold water softening makes sense, we must first understand what it ishard waterand how it affects our home and our health. Water hardness is the level of mineral salts, such as calcium and magnesium, dissolved in the water. The more of these minerals in the water, the harder the water is.

Hard water is not dangerous to health, but it can cause problems in the home, such as damage to the water system, heating boilers or household appliances. In addition, hard water requires the use of more cleaning agents and cosmetics, which can generate additional costs.

The benefits of cold water softening

Even if we cannot soften the entire amount of water used in the home, softening only cold water has many advantages. First of all, softened cold water has a direct impact on the quality of the water we use for drinking and cooking. First of all, it improves the taste of water and makes it more pleasant to drink.

Softened cold water also has a beneficial effect on the operation of household appliances, such as washing machines, dishwashers, irons and coffee machines that use cold water. By softening the water, we increase the life of these devices and reduce the risk of their failure. What's more, using softened water saves on detergents and other cleaning products that work better in soft water.

Cold soft water, warm hard water - how does it work?

In the case of apartments where hot water is supplied from the municipal water supply system, it is often not possible to install a hot water softener. In this case, a cold water softener is the most optimal solution.

Now let's consider what happens when you mix cold, softened water with warm, hard water. Of course, the water will not be perfectly soft, but overall it will have a lower degree of hardness. Warm water, due to its temperature, tends to be more hard. Nevertheless, even in this case, the use of a cold water softener will bring us many benefits.
