When water contains a high level of calcium and magnesium it is called hard water. It’s a natural occurrence that affects over 85% of the water supply in North America including Ohio.
Hard water causes several problems throughout your house. Hard water can clog pipes, reducing the efficiency of your water heater, keep soap and detergent from dissolving, leave behind water spots and ruin your coffee maker. Hard water minerals stick to everything water touches, and do more than leave an unsightly residue – they can actually harm your home and cost you money!
Benefits of Soft Water –
Cleaner and shinier silverware, glassware, mirrors, tiles, cars, or any plumbing fixtures
Reduced soap scum makes cleaning easier and you use less cleaning products
Reduced electric and gas bills, due to mineral build-up on water heater heating coils
Increased lifespans for water using appliances such as coffee machines, ice makers, dishwashers, water heaters and laundry equipment.
Softer and brighter clothes without hard minerals trapped in the fabric.
Use less soap and shampoo, because hard water doesn’t produce a good lather
