Save money on bills
Spend up to 50% less every month on household bills
There are many ways to save money with soft water, some of which are obvious but others may be less so. We’ve all seen how shampoo and shower gel lather up much better in soft water meaning you use far less, and the same is true of washing-up liquid and laundry detergent. But did you know you’ll also extend the life of your household appliances as well as preventing them from breaking down so often?
LONGER-LASTING, HARDER WORKING APPLIANCES
Eliminating limescale will mean appliances like your washing machine, dishwasher, kettle and boiler have longer, happier and more efficient lives. While it’s easy to see the limescale that furs up your kettle and uses more electricity, it’s not so apparent elsewhere.
Limescale build-up inside your shower head reduces the water flow and leaves you standing under a light drizzle instead of a luxurious cascade. In your washing machine and dishwasher, drums, hoses, pipes, pump and the heating element are all affected by limescale, causing breakdowns and potential flooding.

SPEND LESS ON DETERGENT
Washing your clothes in softened water saves between 25% and 50% on the amount of detergent you use in each wash.Your clothes will also last longer, as a water softener strips the abrasive minerals out of the water before it touches your washing. So they’ll stay brighter, whiter and softer for longer.
It’s so easy to save money with soft water. Washing-up liquid will go almost twice as far and you’ll need to put far less rinse aid in the dishwasher. Using less detergent has big benefits for the environment too, so you’ll be helping the planet as well as helping your pocket and that’s good news for future generations.
GOOD FOR YOUR POCKET AND THE PLANET
We need to use laundry detergents, there’s no question about that. But due to some of the necessary ingredients, it’s been suggested that using less detergent can have a beneficial impact on the environment. There’s also the question of carbon footprint – given the amount of washing we all have to do, there’s a lot of packaging, travel to the supermarket and product shipping involved.
If you can reduce your detergent usage by switching to softened water, which creates more lather with less detergent, the planet and your children will surely thank you.
