Here’s some information on hard water, a common water problem that exists in 85% of the households in the United States. What to look for and how to make it go away.

There are plenty of problems commonly associated with well and city water supplies. Too many to properly address in blog. Instead, we will focus on the most common water problem our customers currently face: Hard Water.

What is hard water? Water is considered hard if it contains high levels of calcium and magnesium. If you’ve ever seen drinking glasses washed in hard water, you’ve probably noticed the milky haze that won’t rinse away. Or you’ve seen the whitish scale deposits on your faucets, shower doors, or tea kettle. That’s because hard water deposits accumulate and cause scale to form on all surfaces in contact with the water. What’s worse is the damage the hard water can inflict by causing scale to build up inside pipes, faucets and appliances such as water heaters, washing machines, dishwashers, and icemakers.

The problems caused by hard water are not limited to plumbing and appliances. Hard water affects laundry with increased detergent use, faster fading of colors or yellowing of whites and shortened fabric life. Bathing and showering in hard water will dry out your skin and hair.
