The benefits of a Whole House Water Filter extend beyond improving the quality and taste of your drinking water. Once you have a water filtration system in your home, you may also notice differences in the water used for cleaning, cooking and showering. This is because every source of water in your home is using filtered water, from your kitchen sink to your bathtub to your dishwasher.
In this post, we will look at how a Salt-Free Water Softener within a Whole House Water Filter affects the cleanliness of your dishes and the performance of your dishwasher.
In addition to keeping the water that cleans your dishes free from contaminants and impurities, including the Salt-Free Water Softener and Descaler add-on as part of your Whole House Water Filter can improve how well your dishes are cleaned. The Salt-Free Water Softener alters the minerals that cause hard water, which reduces or eliminates scale buildup in and around your water-using appliances. Less scale is good for your dishes and your dishwasher for several reasons. We’ve listed the main benefits below.
Over time, scale left behind by hard water can build up in your pipes and in your water-using appliances. The result may be less efficient appliances that use more energy. Scale build up can also mean your dishwasher and other appliances need to be replaced or repaired more frequently. Since the Salt-Free Water Softener reduces the effects of scaling, having this component within your Whole House Water Filter can help your dishwasher last longer and run more efficiently.
Scale deposits can leave behind unsightly spots on your dishes, glasses and silverware, even after they have gone through a cycle in the dishwasher. The Salt-Free Water Softener used within a Whole House Water Filter system can reduce or eliminate spotting caused by scale.
While a Whole House Water Filter can help improve the performance of your dishwasher, it’s also good practice to properly clean and maintain your dishwasher for maximum effectiveness. Many people wrongly assume they don’t need to clean their dishwasher. A dishwasher is cleaning itself as it cleans the dishes, right? This is not true. Leftover food and grease can get trapped in your dishwasher, which may lead to odor and unclean dishes. Regularly cleaning the inside of your dishwasher with vinegar and water or baking soda will keep it running well and smelling good.
