We all want clean and safe water for our families. Unfortunately, water comes into our homes with many impurities. Causing problems in fixtures, washers, and dishwashers, most people call this “hard water”.
Hard Water contains a lot of calcium and magnesium which causes two main problems:
- Calcium and magnesium stick to the inside of pipes and does not conduct heat well. This causes the water passing through the pipes to remain cooler. It also restricts the flow through the pipes as it builds up on the walls.
- Calcium and magnesium also react with soap to form a sticky scum, reducing the soap’s ability to lather. Since most of us 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 alternative to other measures 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.
