    The Right Amount of Soft


    The Right Amount of Soft


    Water softening does not have to be an all-or-nothing solution. If you have hard water you’ve probably already noticed its effects around your home – dry skin and hair, soap scum, and sluggish appliances. But if you try to fix the problem, do you run the risk of making your water too soft?

    Is my water too soft?

    After your water softener is installed, you may begin to notice your skin feeling a bit slippery after a bath or shower. It’s a stark difference from the hard water shower experience, which causes a soapy film to remain after rinsing, resulting in dry skin and weighed-down hair.

    Where hard water is chock-full of minerals, extremely soft water is the exact opposite and contains very few minerals. The difference in feel may take some getting used to, but with a Culligan water softener, our Dial-a-Softness® Valve allows you to customize the “feel” of your water, so it never feels too soft or too hard.

    Culligan’s advanced, state-of-the-art water softening technology is designed to deliver fresher, cleaner water throughout your home. Browse our home water softeners to learn more about how you can reduce hard water problems in your home, and contact your local Culligan Expert to make sure your water is just the right amount of soft.
