Scientists are investigating the benefits of a water softener in terms of alleviating eczema symptoms in young children, reports the team at Green Water Technologies. In a study by the U.S. Department of Health, researchers seek to understand the differing effects of soft (conditioned) and hard (unconditioned) water on a person’s skin. The results could signal the need for today’s families to introduce a water softener like the GE Pro Elite into their homes.
Green Water Technologies notes that eczema has been consistently found in areas where hard (unconditioned) water is present. Eczema typically occurs on the neck, face, and the insides of ankles, knees and elbows. Affected areas often appear scaly, thickened and dry. In infants, this itchy and annoying rash may produce a crusting, oozing condition with patches on various parts of the body such as the neck, scalp, legs, forearms, cheeks and forehead.

Water softeners named one of the very best household appliances by Battelle Memorial Institute, reports Green Water Technologies.
Hard water has been found to damage appliances. According to Green Water Technologies, this is one of the findings of a recent study commissioned by the Water Quality Research Foundation and executed by Battelle Memorial Institute. Green Water Technologies says the study indicates that hard, unconditioned water is a contributing factor to appliance failure, landfill overuse, and increased energy consumption.
Green Water Technologies describes Battelle as an independent research facility dedicated to the advancement of technology and the integrity of applied sciences. The study conducted by Battelle supports Green Water Technologies in its quest to help Texas residents lead greener, healthier lives by hitting on certain key points.
