Know the First Signs of Hard Water
Hard water is no joke. Hard water is composed of various levels of dissolved minerals like iron, calcium, and magnesium. Here in the Madison area, water can contain as much as 18 to 20 grains of dissolved minerals per gallon. This rate of dissolved minerals is classified by the Water Quality Association as being very hard water, and this kind of water causes a variety of problems with your plumbing, water-using appliances, your laundry, and even your hair and skin. The fix for hard water is relatively easy, residential water softeners and iron filters are not expensive, so get to know the first three signs of hard water today!
#1. Dishes that look dingy, or have water spots or seem to have a film still on them.
#2. Your laundry has issues with colors looking faded or dull, whites that turn grey, and a feeling of stiffness after coming out of the dryer.
#3. There’s soap scum in your sinks, showers, washing machine, and the kitchen sink.
These three factors are all related, believe it or not! The minerals in hard water combine with soaps to form soap scum – and this stuff isn’t soft! It can be difficult to remove from all sorts of surfaces and takes proactive measures to prevent. Moreover, heating water causes lime scale to form inside of pipes and water heaters. Water softener systems from Schaffer’s Soft Water can prevent this buildup.
