Hard water is water that has an especially high mineral content, usually calcium, magnesium and/or attendant compounds. It has no actively harmful effects, and you can continue to drink and bathe in it with no fears for your health. Having said that, it can also create a number of problems with your plumbing system. Here in Brazoria, TX, water purification systems can be installed that will eliminate the minerals in hard water. But why would you want to invest in such a system?
Here are some reasons to eliminate hard water in your home:
- Better food and drinking water
Hard water can affect the taste of food prepared with tap water, as well as plain old-fashioned drinking water. A water filtration system will eliminate that odd taste, leaving your water cleaner, fresher and better tasting than before.
- Less damage to plumbing
A water filtration system will eliminate those crusty white deposits that sometimes show up on your faucet heads and shower heads, helping to protect your plumbing system from unnecessary wear and tear. This is especially true with your water heater, which can develop build-up from hard water that interferes with its ability to heat your water (and must be drained and cleaned by a professional to correct).
- Softer clothes
Hard water can affect your laundry, causing colors to fade and fabrics wear out more quickly. Water filtration helps preserve your clothes for longer, while making them feel softer and more comfortable in the bargain.
- Better showers
While hard water won’t harm you if you shower or bathe it in, it can create redness and irritation in your skin. Cleaner water means softer water for your showers, reducing the amount of irritation you feel.
