WHAT is it? Hard water is 121+ milligrams per litre as calcium carbonate.
HOW does it happen? When rain falls from the clouds, it is pure. On its way down to earth, it absorbs carbon dioxide and other impurities in the air. As the rain soaks into the earth, it collects more impurities, calcium, magnesium and invisible dissolved rock.
WHO is impacted by hard water? Truth is…all of us. Municipal water filtration plants remove the impurities and some of the minerals. Those with a well are affected most as your water supply comes straight from the ground.
WHAT are the affects of hard water? Soap curd is left on dishes, glasses, clothes, our skin and hair. A variety of odors coming from our taps and showers. Funky tasting water. Shortens the life your appliances; coffee makers, kettles, dishwashers and laundry washer Damage to plumbing pipes, taps and toilets, hot water heaters The list goes on.
