What is hard water?
Water hardness is the amount of dissolved calcium and magnesium in the water — hard water is high in both calcium and magnesium. The reason you can feel the difference on your skin is because soap reacts with the calcium to form soap scum. This results in the need for more soap or detergent to get things clean. And that’s where the term “hardness” came from… it’s hard to wash in.
The calcium and magnesium in hard water cause problems in your home such as:
- Glasses and dishes remain white filmed and spotted even after cleaning.
- Clothes can look gray and dingy because of reduced “sudsing” action.
- Clothes don’t last as long because of the harsh minerals in hard water.
- Clothes can feel stiff or harsh.
- The taste of tea and coffee can be affected by hard water.
- Clogged pipes and reduced water flow can be caused by hard water.
- Film and scale can accumulate on tile and bath/kitchen fixtures.
- Your skin can feel dry from an invisible soapy film left on it.
- Your hair can look dull and limp from excess filmy shampoo residue.
- The life of your water heater can be shortened by deposits of scale.
- Utility bills can increase due to accumulated scale in the water heater because scale is a poor conductor of heat which increases the energy needed to heat water.

Chlorine in your drinking water… what do you need to know?
We have relied on chlorine to purify our water and kill unwanted microorganisms, and it has done a good job of killing most of them for over 100 years. But there are some down sides.
Chlorine treatment does not absolutely ensure the faucets in our home provide drinking water that is free of unhealthy microorganisms. Bacteria e-coli can occasionally be found in chlorinated tap water. So chlorine treatment doesn’t guarantee safe drinking water.
There are numerous health concerns related to chlorinated water that you can learn about here.
The above article poses the question “Do you know what happens when you put chlorine into a fish bowl?” Answer: All of the fish die. That is why fish tanks come with a de-chlorinator. So then why are we drinking and showering in chlorinated water?
