First, let’s look at the most common hard water symptoms:

  • Rust-colored stains in your sinks and tubs
  • Difficulty in making suds
  • Needing to run your washing machine or dishwasher more than once for the same load
  • Dull, lifeless hair
  • Itchy skin
  • Lime deposits on plumbing fixtures, pipes, tea kettles, and more
  • White scaly deposits inside your pipes, too, where you can’t see them
  • You can already guess how the each of these hard water conditions could be costing you extra money, but let’s identify of the few added expenses anyway:
  • Plumbing repairs and replacement
  • Extra wear and tear on your washing machine and dishwasher
  • Extra money spent on laundry and personal soap supplies
  • Tons and tons of wasted water, too
