What is Hard water?
Hard water is water that has a high mineral content, specifically calcium, magnesium, and iron. The hardness in your water is measured by grains per gallon (GPG). While hard water does not pose a health risk, significant issues can arise when you combine hard water with heat or soap. When heat and hard water are combined, it is known to cause scale. This scale will build up in fixtures, pipes, appliances, and water heaters. Soap mixed with hard water will cause soap scum. Soap scum will make cleaning difficult, your laundry duller, and can also cling to your hair and skin.
Reasons to treat your hard water with a water softener:
- Showerheads used with hard water lost 75% of their flow rate in less than 18 months.
- Tankless water heaters failed after only 1.6 years on hard water. On soft water, they maintained the original factory rating.
- Operating costs were 34% less on 20 GPG (grains per gallon) water.
- Gas water heaters are up to 24% more cost-efficient on soft water.
- Electric water heaters can accumulate as much as 30 lbs of rock, shortening the heating element’s life.
- You can use 50% less soap and detergent with soft water. Hard water makes soap have to work much harder.
