Does Your Home Have Hard Water?
Hard water is a sneaky problem that can seem small until it wreaks havoc in your home. Water is considered hard when it has a high concentration of undissolved calcium and magnesium. This high mineral count can cause build up in your home’s water pipes and even heating systems. You’ll also find it doesn’t taste great and tends to be worse for cleaning purposes as well. So, how do you tell when you have hard water in your home? Some symptoms include:
- Itchy, Dry Skin - When your skin is dry and irritated more often than not, you may have a hard water problem.
- Spots on Dishes - If your dishes always have white spots on them, it could be an indication you have hard water.
- Increased Soap Scum Build Up - Constant build-up of soap scum and residue in your sinks and showers can mean you have hard water.
- Shorter Water Heater Life - Because hard water can cause build-up, it can mean your water heater has a shorter life.
Hard water can also leave stains on your fixtures and discoloration on your porcelain. While it can be cleaned, at some point it may also lead to the added expense of replacement, which is something many homeowners would like to avoid.
What Are the Benefits of Installing a Water Softener?
When you install a water softener system in your home it will ensure the lessening of mineral deposits and build-up. When hard water enters your home, it is processed through the water softener before entering your pipes. Inside the water softener, there are resin beads that will latch onto the minerals and facilitate removing them from the water. This is called ionization. Essentially, it uses salt molecules to “disintegrate” the mineral count in water, softening it as it filters.
The end product, softened water, is then released into the home through its faucets. The major benefit of these systems is they work in conjunction with your plumbing. As long as you keep the resin tanks full, anytime you use a fixture in your home, you’re enjoying clean and filtered water.
