We all want clean and safe water for our families. Water enters our homes with impurities that cause problems. “Hard water” affects faucets, shower heads, clothes washers, and dishwashers.
Hard Water contains excessive amounts of calcium and magnesium. This causes two main problems:
- Calcium and magnesium sticks to the inside of pipes and will not conduct heat effectively. This causes the water passing through the pipes to remain cooler. It restricts flow through the pipes as it builds up on the walls.
- Calcium and magnesium react with soap to form a sticky scum, reducing the soap’s ability to lather. Since most like to use soap in the shower, it makes baths and showers less productive, and leaves our skin feeling sticky and grimy.
Water softeners are a great solution to correct hard water problems. Call Ajax at (970) 984 – 0579 to schedule your free, in-home evaluation of your water to determine if a water softener is right for you.
