Should I Treat My Hard Water?
Posted on February 12th, 2016
Living with hard water isn’t easy: Faucets covered in mineral residue, cloudy glassware, and lifeless hair. Moreover, hard water can ravage plumbing fixtures and appliances.
What causes hard water, and what problems does it create?
Rainwater is naturally “soft.” But as it passes through dirt, sand and rock, it picks up minerals that make it “hard.” While hard water isn’t bad for our health, it can be quite problematic for homeowners.
The most troublesome minerals found in hard water are calcium and magnesium. They leave behind deposits, aka “scale,” that negatively impact household appliance performance. Mineral deposits left behind on bathroom and kitchen plumbing fixtures are also, for lack of a better word, unattractive. Additionally, hard water makes it difficult for soaps and detergents to lather properly.
