What is Hard Water?
Hard water is water with high mineral (calcium, magnesium, iron and manganese) content. Hard water can cause a number of undesired effects in plumbing fixtures and appliances, including the buildup of scale and galvanic corrosion. It can also interfere with the action of soaps
What Problems can Hard Water Cause?
Scale does not conduct heat well; therefore, it decreases your water heater’s efficiency. You may notice this whitish coating on your dishwasher, around your faucets – even in your tea kettle.
Galvanic corrosion: When two dissimilar metals are present, this forms a battery, which accelerates
corrosion. When two metals are present, one will be protected, and the other will be corroded.
