How to Remove Hardness from Water

Hard Water Problems

If your water has high levels of calcium and magnesium, it is considered hard.  Hard and moderate levels of hardness (shown in red, yellow and green) can be a problem, regardless of whether you get your water from a well or municipality.  Water hardness typically causes two problems, which are easily corrected with the use of a water conditioning system.  Hard water restricts the ability of soap, detergents, and shampoo to clean because soaps fail to completely dissolve in hard water.  As a result, laundry is dull, dingy, and cleaning supply costs are increased.

Calcium scale from these hardness minerals can damage water-related appliances, such as water heaters, dishwashers, coffee makers and clothes washers, resulting in costly repairs.
