Flat hair & Dry Skin
Do your faucets often have a white scale build-up that is difficult to remove? Chances are you have hard water which means it has a lot of minerals like calcium and magnesium in it. Water collects these minerals from the ground
while traveling to your home. Excess amounts of these minerals are harmful on household items such as plumbing, appliances, and other surfaces that come in contact with hard water. Here are some of the specific areas to watch for if you think you might have hard water.
As hard water flows through your plumbing system, it reacts with the linings of your pipes. This leaves behind mineral deposits and scaling that will eventually clog the plumbing system. This scale can build quickly where water flow is slightly restricted. Faucets, valves, and shower heads often become clogged with deposits as well.
When you have hard water, mineral deposits form inside the tank and on the heating elements of water heaters. These mineral deposits and the scaling form an insulating barrier between the heating element and water, which
significantly reduces the efficiency of the water heater and increases the cost of heating your water. Prolonged buildup will even do damage that requires replacing the unit.
We know that minerals will stick to a home’s pipes, faucets, and appliances, but it will also stick to the soaps! The calcium in the water will mix with soaps to form a thick, sticky curd-like substance we know as soap scum. It sticks to
your showers, sinks, and even your hair and skin when you bathe. This dries our bodies leaving your hair frizzy and your skin itchy.
Hard water will fuse with laundry detergents as well, forming a soap scum that sticks to fabric and works its way into the fibers. Over time your clothes look gray, dingy and dull and leaves towels stiff and rough. Clothes and linens wear out much faster, too.
