How Do You Know If You Have Hard Water?

One of the most common questions we get asked is, “How do you know if you have hard water?”

There are several aesthetic signs of hard water, including white build-up on faucets and shower heads, soap scum in your shower due to the reaction between soap and calcium and magnesium, and spotting on glassware and dinnerware. Perhaps you’ve experienced unexplained skin irritation or noticed a decrease in the efficiency of your heating systems (which has resulted in increased heating costs). Soap and detergent will have difficulty lathering because the compounds in your cleaning products will be reacting to the increased levels of calcium and magnesium. There’s even a possibility you’ve experienced odors and staining on clothing from your hard water, resulting in them feeling less clean than they should be. 

Do You Know if You Have Hard Water?

Aside from the aesthetic signs of hard water, the answer can be determined by simply scheduling a FREE on-site hard water test.
