Do Water Softeners Affect Blood Pressure?


Water Softeners Can Affect Blood Pressure

There is evidence that the salt from water softeners is linked with increased blood pressure in some people, especially those who have pre-existing heart conditions.

  • If you have a pre-existing heart condition (such as high blood pressure), the extra salt may cause an increase in blood pressure levels.

  • Water softeners use salt to break up minerals and other substances that can build up in your water pipes, which can lead to damage, clogs and leaks.

Salt water softeners can cause skin irritation, especially for people with pre-existing heart conditions.


Salt water softeners are also known to increase blood pressure in some people.


Hard water also affects everything from toilet bowls and showers to laundry loads: Hard water is not only difficult to use and unpleasant to look at, it can also be damaging to your household appliances.


If you suspect that your home may have hard water, there are ways to test for it and even ways to fix the problem if necessary.


HARD WATER contains higher concentrations of minerals than soft water and can leave behind spots on dishes, soap scum on glass shower doors, hard-water rings around tubs and sinks and mineral deposits in faucets.

  • Soap Scum Buildup: Hard water can leave a white film on your dishes that makes them look dirty even after they've been washed or rinsed thoroughly. Over time this buildup can make it harder for detergent to penetrate fabrics during the wash cycle, meaning you'll use more detergent than necessary and have to rewash or soak clothing items longer than necessary to get them clean.

  • Mineral Deposits: If you have hard water in your household plumbing system then there will be mineral deposits forming inside pipes as well as any appliances which use water such as dishwashers or washing machines (i..e., front loaders). These mineral deposits can build up over time until they restrict flow through these appliances causing many different problems like reduced hot water pressure/flow rate; decreased efficiency due too much friction between internal components within these machines; corrosion damage caused by organic acids released during chemical reactions between minerals present in unfiltered tap water combined with other chemicals used by manufacturers during manufacturing processes such as plasticizers used for making PVC piping materials resistant against cracking due high temperatures experienced during normal operation conditions experienced over long periods of time under full load conditions...

Hard water is not harmful in small amounts. Your body can process the minerals it contains, and they're also found in foods like nuts and leafy greens.


However, when hard water combines with other elements such as lime scale and soap residue, it forms a residue that makes it difficult for hot water heaters to do their job properly. This causes them to lose efficiency over time--and you'll notice this by seeing an increase in your utility bills!


Soft water is a great way to keep your household running smoothly. It reduces soap scum buildup, improves the quality of your laundry, and makes it easier to clean dishes and do laundry by reducing wear and tear on both clothing fibers and surfaces like sinks and tubs. Additionally, hard water can clog pipes—which can lead to expensive repairs—and increase soap usage if you're washing clothes with hard-water residue in them.

Why are Water Softeners The #1 Selling Water Filter?

Water Softeners Use 40lb Bags Of SALT!

Water softeners are one of the most popular household products out there, and they're not just used to remove hard minerals from water.


How Do Water Softeners Work?


Water softeners work by removing calcium and magnesium ions from tap water using an ion exchange resin bed (the same way that many other types of filters do). This results in softened water and the softened water results in less soap scum buildup on shower doors or faucets than regular tap water would have--and because it doesn't leave behind any dangerous chemicals like chlorine, your skin will feel softer too!


Why Should you use a water softener at home?


There are a number of reasons why you should soften the water used in your home.


There are two main types of water softener salt: sodium chloride and potassium chloride.


Sodium chloride is the most common type used in home water softeners and it can be effective at reducing scale buildup but it can also contribute to high blood pressure and other health problems.


Potassium chloride is a good alternative for people with high blood pressure because it helps to lower their potassium levels which can help reduce symptoms associated with hypertension such as elevated heart rate or chest pain (angina).


However, this type of salt is more expensive than regular table salt so if cost isn't an issue then use potassium chloride.


It's important to know that not all types of water softener salts have the same health effects.


Potassium chloride is a newer type of salt that's used in some water softeners instead of sodium chloride because it causes less damage to household plumbing systems over time--and it can even help prevent lead contamination!
