Green-Water-TechnologiesProElite_Web_2-4Green Water Technologies is a distributor of water services and equipment for consumers across the United States. In this brief interview, Green Water Technologies explains how people can save money by using a Pro Elite System, a high-efficiency professional water treatment system certified by Energy Star that will combat hard water in the home.

A Gathering of Experts: What are some of the benefits of softened water?

Green Water Technologies: Some benefits include improved shampoo lather, reduced film and stains on shower walls, and fewer spots on dishes.

A Gathering of Experts: Is there a financial benefit as well?

Green Water Technologies: Softening water can save both money and energy.

A Gathering of Experts: How so?

Green Water Technologies: Several independent studies have indicated that softened water keeps appliances running for a longer time period while making pipes cleaner.

A Gathering of Experts: What impact does the system have on daily activities?

Green Water Technologies: It greatly reduces the amount of detergent required for cleaning, and allows people to clean clothes and dishes at decreased temperatures.

A Gathering of Experts: This must drastically reduce heating bills.

Green Water Technologies: Very true. Water heaters will also lose efficiency with the presence of hard water.

A Gathering of Experts: Are there statistics that show the difference?

Green Water Technologies: In gas water heaters, each five grains per gallon of hardness will cause an 8 percent loss of efficiency, along with an 8 percent increase in cost, according to the Water Quality Association. This is based on the usage of 100 gallons of hot water each day.

A Gathering of Experts: That’s incredible.

Green Water Technologies: Not to mention that faucets and showerheads have proven to last longer in the presence of softened water.

A Gathering of Experts: How was the quality of the showerhead?

Green Water Technologies: One particular study found that showerheads with the presence of softened water were able to maintain a wonderful luster as well as full flow.

A Gathering of Experts: And that stands in contrast with showerheads with hard water?

Green Water Technologies: Yes, those showerheads lost up to 75 percent of their flow rate within the next 18 months.

A Gathering of Experts: What about when doing laundry?

Green Water Technologies: Researchers ran clothes washers and dishwashers for 30 days, with a total of 240 wash cycles that used hard water and softened sources.

A Gathering of Experts: What did they find?

Green Water Technologies: Units that used softened water exhibited almost no scale buildup.

A Gathering of Experts: But hard water was much different?

Green Water Technologies: It was. Units that ran on hard water showed a buildup of both scale and deposits.

A Gathering of Experts: It sounds like softened water should be the goal for all homeowners.

Green Water Technologies: Absolutely. It’s truly the best thing for anyone’s home.
