What is Hard Water?

Hard water is simply the term for water that contains dissolved calcium, magnesium or iron. The fact is, whether you use well water or city water, your home probably runs on hard water at some hardness level; most homes do. Untreated hard water can cause many problems for homeowners such as scale buildup and skin irritation.

Hard Water Problems

Without soft water systems in place, hard water can cause:

  • Dry itchy skin
  • Spots on your glasses and kitchen utensils
  • Faded or discolored laundry
  • Stains in your sink, toilet, and bathtub
  • Scale buildup in your pipes
  • Shortened lifecol-md- of common household appliances that use water

Of course, you can find quick fixes to these problems, but in the long run you will end up with more damage and costly repairs. It will save you more time, effort and money to invest in a water softener system for your home.
