Gold Series Water Softener'Tis the season for your pocketbook to feel a little smaller and your budget a bit tighter. Once the holidays are over, many people find themselves pinching pennies and looking for ways to save, if they aren't already.

Did you know some of your savings can originate right in your own home? More importantly - we may be biased - your very own Culligan Man can help in the savings!

You use water in your home every day. Bathing, washing and running your appliances. If you have hard water, you could be draining your wallet of money unnecessarily. On the flipside, softened water can reveal hidden savings that bring measurable benefits to your budget.

How can soft water save you money? Let us count the ways:

Detergent savings - you don't need to use as much soap or cleaning aids to wash laundry, dishes, hair and body.  You save on detergent purchases while getting even cleaner results.

Lower energy bills - you can wash your clothes in 60-degree versus 100-degree water temperatures, decreasing the energy required to heat water for successful stain removal.

Appliance longevity - using softened water helps to increase the lifespan of your water-using appliances, by preventing scale buildup that can damage equipment and lead to premature replacement. 

Water heater efficiency - gas storage tank household water heaters operating on soft water can maintain their original efficiency rating.

Healthier plumbing   - hard water scale buildup not only attacks appliances, but clogs pipes, slows drains and constricts the rate of water flow from showerheads. Soft water keeps these "lines" open and prevents the need for costly plumbing repairs.
