What is Hard Water?

Water that contains high amounts of dissolved minerals such as calcium and magnesium. This usually happens when groundwater travels through limestone. While hard water isn’t necessarily a health hazard, in some cases, it may contain harmful bacteria and other dangerous elements that could pose a threat. It’s very common for well water to contain hard water although, in many cases, city water has the same problem. No matter your water source, it is important to have your water tested for hardness and other contaminants to ensure health and safety for you and your family. With that being said,  hard water may be a nuisance in your home and be affecting your appliances, your washing machine, and other areas.

Things to watch for…

The first and perhaps most obvious sign of hard water is a funny taste and smell. If you suddenly find it difficult to get your clothing as clean as you usually can in one wash this could be an indication that you have hard water. Another sign might be corroded plumbing and/or issues with piping. You may also find that you are cleaning much more soap scum than usually off of your appliances and your frequency may have increases due to excessive buildup. Another important thing to watch for is sudden skin irritations you or your family members may be experiencing.

The Solution..

Hard water can be easily mended by opting for a water softening or whole house filtration system. This process would remove dissolved minerals, bacteria, and any other non water elements out of your water source leaving you with pure H2O to enjoy without worry. The results will be undeniable. These systems drastically improve your bathing experience, your laundry machine functionality, and reduce the monthly household costs like your water bill and your bottled water purchases. Not to mention better functionality of your plumbing, pipes, and other appliances. Again, the first step is setting up a complimentary water test. Don’t wonder about your water. Learn the facts!
