What Is Hard Water?

Let’s start with the basics. You’ve probably heard the term “hard water” thrown around a ton if you’ve researched the water quality in your home at all. You probably even understand the basic premise of what hard water is. We want to make sure that you know what hard water is though.

Hard water is water with high amounts of mineral content. The minerals you’ll commonly find in hard water in our area and across the US include calcium and magnesium. Hard water interferes with your daily life more than you probably realize. If you have hard water in your home your plumbing will suffer. That’s because hard water deposits minerals in your pipes over time. After years of circulating hard water in your home, your pipes will narrow due to the sediment build-up inside of them. Outside of narrowed pipes and lowered water pressure, hard water makes your laundry stiff and dingy, your skin dry and tight, your hair brittle, and your sinks, faucets, etc. caked in white sediment build-up.

If you’re ready to rid your home of hard water once and for all we, have the solution for you.

How a Water Softener Can Solve Your Problems

You don’t have to struggle with hard water in your home forever. If you want to get rid of hard water you can install a water softener with our team. A water softener replaces minerals in your water like calcium and magnesium with sodium.

Water softeners use two tanks (a mineral tank and a brine tank) that use resin beads in the mineral tank to attract hard water minerals, which soften the water. The brine tank contains saltwater that flows into the resin tank to rinse the beads and, in the process, exchange the sodium for the hard water minerals on the resin beads.

Hard water is incredibly common across the country. In fact, more than 85% of American homes have hard water. If you need a water softener for your space, make sure that you contact us today. Not every HVAC company can perform great plumbing services in a home. Choose the team with over 50 years of service here in Salt Lake County.
