Learn What Hard Water Can Do and How to Stop It.

As someone who takes pride in your person and home, you wouldn’t think of going to work in dirty clothes. Serving a meal on dirty dishes. Or inviting guests over without first cleaning your bathroom from top to bottom.

The point? Well, each of the above actions involves water. But without clean, uncontaminated water, you’re not cleaning with the best. Part of the reason is this: most U.S. households have higher than recommended amounts of calcium and magnesium, and thus hard water.

Here are the primary symptoms:

  • A filmy haze on glasses
  • Whitish scaly deposits on your faucets and shower doors
  • Internal damage to your water pipes, dishwasher & water heater
  • Dry, dull skin and hair
  • Whites that turn yellow in the wash, and colors that fade

Hard water can be much more than a nuisance. It results in money wasted on extra laundry detergent, soap, shampoo, conditioners, dishwashing detergent, and more. Hard water also can corrode the inside of pipes, thus causing premature failure not to mention water leaks that can lead to messy clean-ups and repair costs. The same goes for water-using appliances like your washing machine and dishwasher – hard water can shorten their equipment life.
