We all know what hard water can do to your home, hair, skin and appliances. But do you know how hard it is? I have attached a link with just this information, and a chart that tells you if your H2O is considered hard or not. You can find your city and see where you stand.
If your city is not on the list remember there are other ways to see if there are hardness issues in your home. Hard water will leave spots on chrome fixtures or glass shower doors. Your soap will not lather as it should, and your skin and hair will be dry.
Now the questions is what do you do if you have it? Well you call a professional to come out and test your water and see what your numbers are, and then you can discuss with them what your options are. Keep in mind the following though;
YOUR TAP WATER IS SAFE!
Your community is always testing and making sure that the levels are right where they are supposed to be. Calcium in your H2O is not unsafe, but is can cause some issues when it comes to faucets, pipes, hair and skin. If you have a hardness issue then a softener should be considered. Through eating, breathing and drinking , contaminates get into your body. These come mostly from the food we eat. The thing about H2O is that, it is the only thing that cleans out the contaminates, and the cleaner it is, the more stuff it takes out. Kind of like cleaning your windows. The dirtier the water the less clean the window are.
So remember, if you have any questions please give us a call and we can help explain all of this to you in more detail. And don’t forget to find you city on the list and see where you city stands.
