The phrase “hard water” might sound like an oxymoron, but here in California, hard water is a hard reality that homeowners have to deal with. The “hardness” of water refers to the concentration of dissolved minerals such as magnesium and calcium found present in a water source.
These types of minerals are found in virtually all natural water sources and are entirely normal. A problem arises when the concentration becomes too high and you find yourself dealing with its consequences.
Luckily, the professionals here at Environment Water Filtration want to do everything we can to help the community of Riverside avoid the impacts of hard water. That’s why we’re proud to offer access to our range of top-of-the-line whole-home water softening systems.
For many years, people didn’t have a reliable method for softening water, and dealing with hard water was just a fact of life. Many people today live in homes with hard water and aren’t even aware of how much their lives could be improved with a water softener system.
Our team works hard to be both a reliable source of second-to-none water treatment systems and quality information. To help our people out, here are signs that might indicate you have a hard water issue:
One of the most obvious benefits of water softening is overall improved water quality. Not only is softer water not associated with the list mentioned above, but it also tends to taste and smell better.
Over the years, any plumbing system will have a tremendous amount of water pass through it. When that water has a high concentration of dissolved minerals, over time, these deposits can build up on the inside walls of your plumbing. If enough debris is allowed to accumulate, it can cause reduced water pressure or even total blockages.
It’s estimated that the average person consumes nearly 150 bottles of water per year. With the utility provided by a water softener, bottled water will seem less like a necessity. Give your household access to high-quality water, directly from your home, at the turn of a faucet.
Additionally, reducing the need to make bottled water purchases can greatly reduce the impact you have on the environment. With plastic being the problem that it is and with it steadily filling our oceans, the professionals here at Environment Water Filtration want to do our part to solve the plastic problem. One water softener at a time.
Over time, the minerals present in hard water can impact the health of your skin. The mineral deposits in hard water make soaps and conditioners less effective. Hard water can strip away vital oils and nutrients from your skin and hair, leaving them unhealthy, dry and itchy.
Just as hard water can negatively impact your plumbing, it can also work to damage appliances attached to your water system. Hard water buildup can affect your dishwasher, coffee maker and refrigerator.
Soft water is far easier for these devices to process, and a Riverside water softener installation is one of the best ways to ensure that you get the most out of every appliance in your home.
