Getting a water softener

I’ve wanted a water softener for many years and in the video above, I finally take the plunge!

In case you don’t know, there’s a very good chance that you live in a hard water area. I certainly do. In actual fact, even if you don’t live in a hard water area, your water is likely to have some element of hardness to it. Even if your water is deemed “soft” by your water supplier.

Installing a water softener will make your water completely soft, i.e. as close to 0% hardness as it’s possible to get. This means that your white goods (such as your dishwasher and washing machine) will probably last longer. You won’t have to use so many chemicals when washing your hair or your clothes and can even do away with some additives altogether (such as the salt in your dishwasher).

In the video, I talk about the challenges I had in installing a water softener as I needed to move my stop cock and that wasn’t going to be an easy task to accomplish. 

I hope you enjoy the video. I’ll try to answer any questions raised over on my YouTube channel so feel free to ask anything if you have any queries. I’m no expert, but I’ll help if I can.

By the way, I’ve uploaded a few videos to YouTube recently and haven’t added them all to my blog – I’ll catch up on these pages as soon as can! Note to self – write blog more often. 🙄
