The “Problem” With Water
We are all familiar with the fact that our water contains high amounts of dissolved minerals due to its source and the way in which it reaches our homes. Of these, calcium and magnesium are of particular importance because they affect the water's ability to function in our homes. These minerals make our water hard.
One effect of hard water is that soaps and detergents lose some effectiveness. Instead of dissolving completely, soap combines with the minerals, forming a sticky "goo". Because less soap is dissolved, more is required. The sticky goo clings to the skin and may actually inhibit cleansing. Washed hair seems dull and lifeless.
This effect becomes more evident in the laundry and dishwasher. The soap goo can work its way into your clothes as they're being washed in your automatic washing machine. This can keep dirt trapped in the fibers, and it can stiffen and roughen the fabric. Soap goo deposits leave spots on everything you wash--from your dishes to the family car--and a soap film will build up in your bath and shower.
Another reason to be concerned about hard water is its effect on your plumbing system. Calcium and magnesium deposits can build up in pipes, reducing flow to taps and appliances. In water heaters, these minerals generate a scale buildup that reduces the efficiency and life of the heater.
Water softening systems remove calcium and magnesium from the water, eliminating the negative effects these minerals have on your plumbing system and on your detergents, saving you money in reduced maintenance and reduced use of soap and cleaners.
