Depending on where you live, you may have hard water in your home and may not realize it.
Water hardness is a common concern among homeowners, mainly due to its impact on water quality. Hard water is characterized by elevated levels of minerals like calcium and magnesium, alongside various other natural elements and metals. These minerals are naturally present in the soil and can be “picked up” by water flowing through them.
Yes, water that is high in minerals is safe to drink, but it can lead to other significant issues in your home.
While hard water isn’t a health hazard, it can cause significant issues in your home. This includes excessive a crusty buildup in water pipes, boilers, hot-water heating systems, and other water-utilizing equipment. You may also notice your water isn’t as effective in cleaning laundry or dishes, demanding more soap to generate sufficient suds.
Assessing water hardness can be accomplished through various methods. The most precise evaluation involves having your water sample analyzed by an independent certified laboratory. This provides the most accurate results, and they are also able to screen for water problems that could pose a health risk.
To address the issues associated with hard water, many people install water softeners to remove calcium and magnesium ions from the water. This process effectively “softens” the water and helps fix the problems caused by hard water.
