Water hardness in Champlin, MN, makes life much harder than it needs to be. As a result, it can cause various problems- from minor to downright troublesome – and expensive. Unfortunately, the vast majority of homes, not only in Minnesota but throughout the rest of the country, have to deal with this issue at one time or another. But the professionals with Aquarius Water Conditioning have the answer – water softeners from Kinetico, the undisputed industry leader. Here’s some information on how hard water happens, why it’s a problem, and what we can do about it.
Hard Water – The Basics
Hard water feels the same as soft water, of course. What makes it “hard” is the fact that it has an excessive amount of calcium and magnesium. As water travels from its source to your home, it picks up these minerals and other substances. It accumulates them as it moves over rocks and through the soil. In addition, water can pick up other substances as it moves through your municipal water system or the pipes that go into your home.
What’s the Big Deal?
Well, for a lot of people, hard water is more of an annoyance than anything. After all, you can bathe in it and even drink it with no health risks. In addition, magnesium and calcium are essential in helping your body operate as it should. But hard water can be more of an annoyance. It can, in some instances, actually hurt your appliances and cause costly repairs. Here are just a few of the problems that hard water can cause.
- Your skin feels a little itchy after you take a shower.
- Your hair starts to break more than usual when brushing or combing.
- Your dishes and glasses have white spots.
- Your home’s faucets and other fixtures develop a chalky buildup.
- Your shower doors and bathtub have a film around them.
- Your clothes are stiff after washing them and hanging them out to dry or laying them flat.
- It’s hard to get enough lather when you use soap or shampoo.
All of the above are a little irritating at most. But, of course, many people could live with those kinds of problems. Unfortunately, however, hard water can also put a dent in your bank account – a big one.
How is this the case? When mineral deposits continue to build and build in the water lines that run to your water heater, dishwasher, refrigerator, and washing machine, it is a lot harder for those appliances to work correctly. The harder they work, the more wear and tear develops – and the greater the chances they’ll break down.
