Do I Need to Treat Hard Water?

Hard water is the kryptonite of appliance longevity. Remember how excited you were when you purchased your brand-new dishwasher? No more hand washing dishes for you! Your dishwasher may require maintenance every now and then. However, it should save you from handwashing for at least the next 10 years or so, right? Unfortunately, if you live in an area with high mineral content in the water supply, your dishwasher may be toast after only 5 to 7 years.

Why You Do Need to Treat Hard Water

What exactly does hard water do to your appliances? Since hard water contains a much higher volume of minerals and metals the water that your dishwasher, fridge, or washing machine uses, it slowly creates a build-up of mineral deposits.

This build-up constricts water flow, possibly preventing it all together if it gets too bad. If the build-up continues without treatment, the anticipated lifespan of your appliances is often drastically reduced.

Water softeners are the most common form of hard water treatment. When you have one installed on your property, you own and manage your water softening system. The job of a water softener is to filter your property’s water supply of minerals. It does so by allowing ion-charged resin beads to capture the unwanted particles and exchange them for sodium ions.

You may also choose to use an artificial or natural zeolite as an alternative to sodium ions that works just as well to provide freshly purified soft water to your home’s pipes and appliances.
