What Is Hard Water?

Hard Water? Isn’t that just ice? Well, no. Water is actually classified as “hard” if the concentration of minerals like magnesium and calcium is high enough. Magnesium and calcium are picked up by water as it passes through soil and rock. You cannot detect hard water just by looking at it. You may have hard water if you are noticing things like higher utility bills, scale buildup and spots that are hard to remove from your shower or sink. Hard water is very common and is believed to account for about 85% of water in the United States.

Signs of Hard Water

The most common sign that your home has hard water build up are scale on certain types of surfaces. You may notice mineral deposits or a white film on things like porcelain, stainless steel, china, tile, or glass. You’ll likely also notice these stains on your sinks, bathroom fixtures, or dishes.

Problems Caused By Hard Water Buildup

Hard water buildup does not pose any threats to your health but it does work to make your pipes and water heater less efficient. It can also reduce the efficiency of the soaps and detergents you use. Washing your clothes in hard water can make them wear out faster. It can cause showerheads to clog and soap scum to accumulate around your bathtub and shower. Hard water buildup makes cleaning more difficult and can cause damage to shower glass that may be permanent. It can cause damage to your water-using appliances and makes it more difficult to get your dishes clean. Hard water buildup can lead to clogged pipes, irritated skin, harder-to-manage hair, and it will likely increase your utility bills.
