Hard Water Can Give You a Hard Time
While hard water is not a health concern, it can cause build-up (called “scale”) in pipes and plumbing that can cause problems. Hard water can also make it tough on appliances and water heaters, so hard water remediation is imperative.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE HARD WATER?
Wondering if you have hard water at your home? Signs that you might include:
- White build-up on fixtures
- Spots on glasses
- Soap and shampoo that doesn’t lather well
- Dry skin and hair
- Clothes that don’t seem clean after washing.
HARD WATER REMEDIATION FROM FONTUS CAN HELP
If you have hard water at your home or office, it’s easily fixed with a water softener. Because hard water contains an abundance of minerals (magnesium and calcium are the primary culprits, though iron and manganese can make an appearance), installing a system that removes the minerals will soften your water.
Benefits of soft water include:
- Softer skin & hair
- Brighter clothes
- Fewer household cleaners needed
- Clearer glasses and dishes
- Extended life of appliances and hot water heaters
In addition, soft water has potential economic benefits:
- Water heaters work 30% more efficiently = lower energy costs
- Appliances perform better = fewer repair bills
- Cleaners and detergents last longer = reduced spending on cleaning supplies
- Clothes last longer = fewer replacements
- Skin and hair aren’t as dry = reduced spending on lotions and conditioners
If you’re unsure whether you have hard water or are interested in hard water remediation, give FONTUS a call. We’ll be right out and provide a free water test. If you have hard water, we’ll discuss your options with you, so you’ll have the knowledge to decide which system works best for you. After installation, we’ll test once more to make sure the system works optimally and softens your water.

THE FONTUS GUIDE TO TESTING AND TREATMENT FOR HARD WATER, IRON, AND MANGANESE
Many Maine homes commonly deal with hard water, iron & manganese in their drinking water. Testing and treatment for hard water, iron, and manganese minerals are crucial for your family and coworkers’ health. In addition, these minerals can be detrimental to your plumbing as well! If you have one of these issues and want to learn more, you’ve come to the right place.
ALL ABOUT TESTING AND TREATMENT FOR HARD WATER, IRON, MANGANESE
Hard water is caused by an overabundance of naturally-occurring minerals, calcium and magnesium. Iron and manganese occur naturally in soil, rocks, and even plants. Their presence in drinking water is not a problem unless they appear at an excessive level. When that happens, water may become discolored and rusty-brown stains or black specs may appear on fixtures and laundry.
Calcium and magnesium are a common problem for Maine homes that source water from wells, as well as city water. However, the good news is that hard water does not cause health problems—aesthetic problems, yes, but health problems, no.
