What is Hard water? should I be concerned about the hardness of my water? These are some of the many questions I get from clients all the time. The best way to understand this common issue is for me to educate you on what the "hardness" is. Hardness is the amount of Calcium and Magnesium in a water source. High levels of Calcium and Magnesium makes it "hard" to form a lather or soap suds. It is typically measured in terms of ppm or Grains per Gallon.
Here are clues that your water is hard:
Dishes have water spots.
Clothes look dingy.Soap won't lather well.
Tangled, rough hair.
Rust-colored stains on your clothes, silverware, or porcelain fixtures.
Hard Water is also typically responsible for the white precipitate or "scale" seen on pipes, faucets, or sinks. This precipitate is the primary problem associated with hardness. This precipitation is not only cosmetically unappealing, but can also cause flow switches and solenoids to stick, drinking valves to leak and drain valves on racks to be difficult to open or close. The best solution for hard water problems is to soften your water. The best way to soften your water is by installing a water softening filtration system.
Here are the benefits of soft water:
Soft, clean skin.
Soft silky hair.
Soap lathers easily.
Reduces/eliminates limp and lifeless hair.
Lesser quantities of soap, shampoo etc. & increases the efficiency.
