If you have noticed that it is harder to get the soap and shampoo to lather well in the shower or your laundry doesn't seem to be as clean, the problem is probably hard water. While not necessarily a health risk, hard water is a nuisance and can be quickly and cost effectively taken care of. Deciding on a hard water treatment that will work for you is the first step.

What is Hard Water?

Hard water is water with a high concentration of specific minerals dissolved into the solution. The minerals with the highest density found in hard water are calcium and magnesium. They make their way into your tap water through the water moving through rock and soil as intended in nature. This is why certain regional areas have a larger hard water problem than others. One of the biggest drawbacks to having hard water is that it is hard on faucets often leaving behind mineral deposits on the fixtures. Hard water also negatively affects the performance of soaps and detergents. Eliminating these problems is simple by learning more about hard water and treatments. There are a number of ways that hard water can be treated in the home. Some people feel that installing a shower filter is enough; others treat a hard water problem by using whole house water filters . A whole house water softener makes the most sense as it takes care of hard water at the source of entry and for every facet or water outlet. 

The key to getting the most from your soaps and detergents as well as prolonging the life of your water fixtures is to take action to eliminate hard water in your home. The number of options makes this process easy to do. Your clothes, skin and hair will thank you for  it.
