Did you know that hard water can be costing you more than just the price of your monthly water bill? Calcium and magnesium in hard water can build-up in your pipes, plumbing fixtures, and appliances, leading to costly repairs and replacements. In this blog post, we'll explore the hidden costs of hard water and how NuvoH2O's whole-home water softeners can save you money in the long run.

Plumbing Repairs

Hard water can cause significant damage to plumbing pipes, leading to leaks and breaks. Over time, mineral buildup can cause corroded pipes which can decrease water pressure and lead to plumbing repairs. By installing a whole-home water softener system, like the ones offered by NuvoH2O, you can minimize the buildup of minerals, thus helping to prevent costly plumbing repairs.

Appliance Maintenance and Replacement

Hard water can also cause damage to your household appliances, such as your dishwasher and washing machine. Mineral build-up can clog your appliances' filters and heating elements, causing them to work harder and ultimately break down. Replacing appliances due to hard water damage can be costly. However, installing a NuvoH2O whole-home water softener can help extend the life of your appliances and save you money in the long run.

Cleaning Costs

Hard water can make cleaning more difficult and expensive as it can leave mineral deposits on your dishes, glassware, and surfaces. These mineral deposits can be tough to remove, requiring extra cleaning products or even professional help. With a whole-home water softener, your water will be free of minerals and therefore, make cleaning easier and more affordable.

Energy Expenses

When hard water is flowing through the plumbing system, it can cause appliances to work harder and use more energy. For instance, a water heater using hard water may use up to 29% more energy than when using soft water. A whole-home water softener will improve the efficiency of your plumbing system and subsequently reduce your energy consumption and utility bills.


Hard water is more than just an annoyance; it can damage your pipes and appliances and lead to costly repairs and replacements. With the installation of NuvoH2O's whole-home water softener, you can save money on plumbing repairs, appliance maintenance, cleaning costs, and energy expenses.
