Treating hard water is something that many of us have to deal with. Not only does hard water make it difficult to feel clean after a shower and washing our clothes, but it also damages our pipes. The minerals in hard water make it difficult to do almost everything in the home, including keeping our pipes in good working order. Mineral build up from hard water can clog pipes, reducing water flow throughout the home. In addition, water heaters, washers, and other appliances that use water can experience reduced function due to scale buildup. When left untreated, these deposits and buildup can lead to ongoing maintenance and costs – many of those costs being quite hefty. That means that treating hard water is vital to your home’s health if you have this issue.
