What Is Hard Water and Why Does It Matter?

Hard water is water containing high amounts of minerals, such as calcium and magnesium. Over time, these minerals can form deposits that build up inside your home’s plumbing, fixtures and appliances. Left unchecked, this buildup of scale can cause a whole host of costly problems for your home.

Depending on where you live, you may be more likely to have hard water. But no matter where you are, if you’re experiencing issues with your water like scale buildup in your faucets, plumbing and appliances, hard water is likely the culprit.

Schedule a free, in-home test from our water filter and water softener installers, who can recommend whole-home water treatment solutions to significantly improve your water supply.

Protect Your Appliances From Hard Water Damage

In the short term, scale buildup in your appliances can affect their performance in major ways, hindering their cleaning ability and leaving filmy residues on your dishes or clothing.

Over time, this scale buildup forces your appliances to work harder to do the same job, leading to higher utility bills. And ultimately, appliances damaged by hard water don’t last as long.

This means that on average, with hard water, you can expect to replace your major appliances and plumbing fixtures much sooner than you should.

Clean Water For Your Whole Home

A whole-home water purifier or under-the-sink water filtration system is more effective and offers more protection than most water filter products available off the shelf. This is because, whether a reverse osmosis system or a carbon filter system, a home water filtration system removes more contaminants from your water and purifies more than just the water you drink. Whole-home water purifiers improve the quality and safety of your water, wherever and whenever in your home you need it.

Get The Water Treatment System You Need

A water softener protects your home’s plumbing and appliances from the mineral deposits left behind by hard water, while a water filter removes all kinds of harmful contaminants from your drinking water for cleaner, better-tasting and odour-free water.

Get Rid of Hard Water

Even better, a water softener system will allow your appliances to operate more efficiently, preventing sediment buildup and freeing them up to clean clothing and dishes more effectively while using less water and detergent. With a water softener installation, you may even notice your skin and hair feeling cleaner and smoother after a bath or shower!
