Hard Water Giving you a Hard Time?

Hard Water Giving you a Hard Time?
Depending on where you live and the quality of the water in that area, hard water might be a legitimate concern for you. Water is considered “hard” based on the minerals it contains – the higher the concentration of calcium, magnesium, and other minerals in the water, the harder it is. The “so what” comes in when you consider the damage hard water can do to your home.

Effects of Hard Water

  • Hard water can cause buildup of limescale in your plumbing, clogging or damaging pipes
  • Hard water can trigger skin irritation when used along with soap to bathe
  • Similarly, hard water can hinder clothes and dishes from being cleaned as effectively

While not a severe health issue, many have found that water softeners can mitigate the effects of hard water, preventing mineral buildup and making it easier to use soap for washing.
