Sick of your well water staining all your faucets, leaving soap scum on clean dishes, and making your appliances less efficient?
An unfortunate side effect of well water that some homeowners must contend with, depending on their water source, is hard water. If you’re one of these homeowners with hard well water, don’t resign yourself to a life of soap scum and mineral stains! Keep reading to find out more about the effects of hard water and how you can fight back.
What Is Hard Water?
Hard water is water that has a high mineral content (typically calcium and magnesium). Often, this happens when your well water source percolates through natural limestone and chalk in the ground.
If you’re having issues with hard water, or even water containing high levels of iron, then you’re probably experiencing some nuisances around the house. For example, you might notice:
- White soap scum in the bathtub and shower curtains
- Ugly mineral buildup around faucets and water fixtures
- Frequent water heater failure
- Irritated skin that is dry and/or itchy
- Rough, scratchy clothing that ages quickly
- White spots on clean silverware and glassware
- Brown, rusty-looking stains on laundry and water fixtures (due to high iron content)
While none of these problems would necessarily be deemed “emergencies” (except for a failed water heater, perhaps), they’re nonetheless frustrating to deal with. They compromise the performance and lifespan of your plumbing, water fixtures, and any other appliances that run on water. And, let’s be honest—it’s just plain annoying to have to constantly scrub away soap scum and mineral stains around your shower, tub, and sink.
However, hard water is no cause for despair. In fact, the solution to hard well water is quite simple…
