Hard Water Symptoms
Did you know that over 85% of American homes have hard water? Hard water is defined as water with a concentration of suspended mineral content in excess of 120 ppm. Although there are no known detrimental health effects associated with drinking hard water, prolonged exposure can cause damage to your pipes and fixtures.
Here are a few common signs that you may have hard water:
Dry hair and itchy skin – higher mineral content can cause your skin to become dry and itchy and can make your hair appear dull and more difficult to manage.
Soap and shampoo don’t lather well – hard water causes soap to generate soap scum instead of lathering into bubbles. You may find that your shampoo and your dish soap don’t lather into bubbles the way they should. Some people also notice their glasses and silverware emerge from the dishwasher with a foggy appearance or with spots. In your laundry, you may notice that colors appear more faded and that your whites develop a grey tinge to them.
Scale deposits on your fixtures – if you have hard water, you may notice the accumulation of calcium or scale forming in your sinks, bathtub or shower. These deposits can also appear on your taps and, over time, they can cause significant damage to your fixtures and reduce the flow of water.
What Does A Water Softener Do?
Water softeners work on the principal called ion exchange. Through this process, the water softener, which is connected directly to your home’s water supply, reduces the mineral content in your water by replacing it with something else, usually sodium. The result is fresh tasting water without any of the negative effects of hard water. Water softeners require little maintenance from the homeowner. You will only need to replenish the salt in the tank on a regular basis according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
