Water Softening: Effects of Hard Water
On Appliances: Hard water reduces the efficiency of water-using appliances. Water heaters using hard water consume nearly 20% to 30% more energy than a water heater using softened water. Appliances operating with hard water may need to be serviced or replaced more often.
On Skin and Hair: Bathing with hard water leaves a soap residue that clogs the pores on our skin causing excessive dryness, itching, irritation, and the need for lotions. Hard water enhances the effect of psoriasis, eczema, and other skin conditions. Hard water dries hair out causing split ends and the increased need for conditioners and treatments.
On Laundry: Continued washing in hard water causes your colors to fade and whites to look gray and dingy. Your clothing wears out 30% to 40% faster in hard water and requires the need of more soap to clean. Soap scum is left behind in your clothes, making the material feel harsh and scratchy.
On Plumbing: Pipes can become clogged with scale that reduces water flow and eventually requires pipe replacement.
