Do you have white scales on your faucets or mineral residue on dishes and glassware? Are you white dingy? In this case, you may suffer from hard water.
From a scientific point of view, hard water is water that contains high concentrations of dissolved minerals such as calcium or magnesium. While it’s not unsafe to drink, it has been known to interfere with the way soaps and detergents work, leading to the build-up of calcium and magnesium in your home’s pipes and water heater.
This can lead to a number of different problems that can be ridiculously expensive to fix, including corrosion of pipes and scale build-up which can result in lower water pressure. Hard water can also affect your laundry and shorten the life of your favorite shirt or pants.
To deal with hard water, you should consult an expert like Independent Water Service who will give you one FREE Water analysis and recommend an EcoWater system (which is NSF certified and has a 5 year warranty on most components) to meet your specific needs. You’ll see fewer water marks, use less soap and detergent, and experience cleaner laundry and softer hair in no time!
Independent Water Service can also work with you to improve the quality of your home’s drinking water. Ordinary tap water can contain undesirable and potentially dangerous substances such as sulfates, mercury, asbestos and arsenic.
For worry-free drinking or boiling water, Independent Water Service may recommend a reverse osmosis system that plugs directly into your refrigerator and ice maker and provides cleaner, clearer water immediately.
