THE BEST PAL A GAL EVER HAD
We are told that, as more and more states legalize same-sex marriage, this little girl will be able to marry her water softener. There goes the neighborhood.
DID YOU KNOW THAT SOFT WATER IN YOUR HOME COULD DO ALL THIS?
1. Save 50% or more of all the soap and cleaning materials you use.
2. Give softer and more manageable shampoos.
3. No bathtub or toilet bowl ring any more.
4. Washes your clothes cleaner because soft water produces no soap scum or curds that stay in your laundered clothes.
5. Guard your families’ health by filtering your drinking water of hard calcium salts and other foreign materials.
6. Keeps plumbing free of hard water build-up deposits.
…and, makes a better cup of coffee.
FOR ALL THE DETAILS ON COST AND INSTALLATION IN YOUR HOME - NO OBLIGATION OR HIGH PRESSURE.
HULTS SOFT WATER CO., MOUNTAINSIDE, NEW JERSEY
