Hard water can be a big problem, affecting almost every area of your life, but not a whole lot of people know exactly what hard water is. In fact, if one hundred random people on the street were polled, the majority of them would have heard the phrase “hard water” – but very few of them would be able to define precisely what that phrase is referring to.
Water is referred to as “hard water” if it contains a lot of minerals or metals. This makes sense, as you can think of the fact that metals and minerals are hard – so if there are a lot of minerals in water, it would also be referred to as hard. Minerals and metals that are often found in hard water include calcium and magnesium, but other minerals and metals can be found in there as well. These pollutants get into groundwater by seeping in from the surrounding soil.
We all know that hard water is “bad” – but what exactly is the problem with hard water? What kinds of problems can it cause?**Hard water can cause calcium and magnesium to build up on the inside of metal (such as pipes, tea kettles, coffee makers, water heaters – anything that is made of metal that might have water inside of it). This scaly buildup can cause water to run slow or take a lot longer to heat up. Eventually, it can move from simply interfering with the movement of water through your pipes to actually totally and completely blocking it. **Hard water causes damage to fixtures like shower heads as well as pipes. This damage occurs over time due of the buildup of minerals such as lime and calcium. Steel pipes are especially susceptible to this type of damage and it is advisable to replace them with copper, CPVC, or ideally you would perform a PEX plumbing replacement.
**Hard water is very difficult to use around the house for daily activities. Soap is a lot more difficult to work up a lather with if you are using along with hard water, for instance, and it also causes soap to deteriorate in such a way that it develops an extremely unpleasant scum-like residue.
** Hard water will leave your skin dry and scaly and your hair will not be moisturized and will feel dry as well.
