There are certain pleasures in life we just cannot live without, and a good meal is certainly one of them for most of us. You might be a maestro in the kitchen, but no matter how excelled your culinary skills and ingenuity are, your food and drinks cannot possible taste as good as they can unless you have a quality water softener. In fact, you will be shocked to taste the difference for yourself.
Which types of meals and beverages are affected by poor water quality, and therefore, improvable by installing a suitable water softener? Continue reading to find out.
Hard Water and Soft Water
Hard water contains hard mineral ions that do not dissolve well. Such hard minerals include calcium, iron, and magnesium, but can also include a dangerously long list of other contaminants, including chlorine, lead, and more. Although hard water cannot harm our health, it can negatively affect many areas of living, which can lead to costly replacements, repairs, and inconveniences. It can also make water taste and smell bad. A water softener is the primary appliances used to abate the negative affects of hard water in homes and businesses. It works by using a technology known as ion exchange, which basically swaps positively charged hard ions, with negatively-charged, soft ions. The result is excellent quality of water in all aspects!
Soft Water Makes Drinks Taste Better
Soft water taste better than hard water because it contains a much lower value of hard mineral content. In contrast, hard water has a rusty, metallic-like flavor because of its mineral composition. It can also smell a little bit like dirt or dust. These tastes and sensations can change the way your water tastes, as well as any drinks you make with your tap water, such as coffee, tea, lemonade, and more.
It Also Makes Food Taste Better
There are plenty of dishes that are prepared using water. Think about pastas, and soups, and marinades. Then there are sauces, pastes, stocks, broths, and so much more. All of these dishes are affected in a negative way by the constituents found in hard water because they change the way tap water tastes and smells. Food is blander, and may not store as long as food made with softened water.
Cleaner Dishes Improve the Taste of Your Food and Drinks
Hard water negatively impacts plumbing and appliances too. As the hard mineral ions precipitate out of water, they leave behind a greenish-white, flaky film known as limescale. This sediment-based build up is damaging and corrosive to plumbing pipes and fixtures, as well as plumbed appliances like water heaters, washing machines, and more. One major area affected is the dish washing machine and the quality of your tap water. Limescale also leaves your dishes looking cloudy and spotty. This hard mineral residue left behind will also change the way your food and beverages taste, whether eating from a spoon or fork, or bowl or cup.
