Most people understand the impact hard water has. Hard water is not necessarily unhealthy to drink, but it has excessive minerals that impact the skin and hair when we bathe with it. Hard water also affects the items you wash including dishes, laundry, and hard surfaces. The water based appliances as well as plumbing, and plumbing fixtures are all susceptible to the hard water development. Today, we at AAA Water Team would like to take the opportunity to continue to elaborate on hard water.
Signs of Hard Water in Your Home
1) Water seems to take unusually long to heat up.
2) Water-using appliances do not reach their lifespans.
3) Challenging to remove, the faucets and fixtures develop white residues. These are known as limescale buildup and it also will accumulate in the pipes and inside the water-based appliances.
4) Skin and hair both feel dry and appear dull.
5) The white clothes eventually become light shades of gray.
6) The bright clothes have noticeably lost vibrancy.
7) Stemware, drinking glasses, pots, pans, and other dishware are riddled in water spots after the dishwasher has run its cycle.
To remedy hard water, a water softening systems helps remove the excess minerals and offer homeowners many advantages which are listed below.
Softer Skin & Hair
Leaving behind a nasty film that dries skin and hair while making hair unmanageable, hard water minerals bond just like the limescale on your faucet. Using a water softener removes the hardening minerals to keep your skin and hair moister and reducing the need of moisturizers, as well as shampoos and conditioner.
Clean Less with Water Softener
Some consumers can save up to 75% on cleaning products when they invest in a water softener. The dishes, hard surfaces, laundry and anything cleaned in hard water will see a difference in time saving and less product use to keep clean.
Extend Appliance Life Expectancy
When your water contains hardness minerals, the coffee machines, washing machines, water heaters (electric, tankless, and gas), humidifiers, dishwashers, and other such appliances can benefit without hard water. You can save up to 40% on energy costs related to your water-using appliances with water softening.

By design, water softeners are made to remove sediment, dirt, and mineral hardness. Also, water softener will deliver healthier, great-tasting water. The pipes, faucets and water-based appliances can avoid the scale build-up with water softening systems. Additionally, according to research provided by University of New Mexico nearly 30% of costs can be saved as it reduced the water heating. According to the Battelle Institute, soft water also requires up to 75% less soaps, cleaners, and shampoos. As mentioned, the spots on silverware, glasses and dishes are eliminated.
