Residential Water Softeners In Austin

Water softening is something that many people never have to think about until their home’s hard water becomes a problem. Most people never have to even learn what hard water is in the first place until they find themselves dealing with its consequences.

The “hardness” of water refers to the concentration of dissolved minerals, such as magnesium and calcium, that are naturally found in water. Water develops hardness when water comes into contact with soil or rock, which dissolves into the water at microscopic levels.

While most hard water is harmless, when the concentration of these minerals becomes high enough, it can have a negative impact on several factors in your day-to-day life.

5 Signs Of Hard Water 

Many people deal with the negative impacts of hard water every day and don’t even realize it. However, when you know the signs to look out for and you understand the impacts of hard water, your hair could be just a bit healthier and doing the dishes could become just a bit easier. Read on to learn more about residential water softener installations from the professionals here at American Water.

To help our clients, we’ve put together this list of the top five signs of hard water.

Excessive Soap Scum

Hard water can impact the effectiveness of everyday cleaning agents. When hard water mixes with some soaps it can create a residue called soap scum, which makes cleaning anything far more difficult than it should be.

Mineral Deposits After Surfaces Dry

Hard water tends to dry cloudy and can leave mineral deposits on plumbing fixtures and any area that’s regularly exposed to moisture, like shower walls and sink backsplashes. These deposits can be unsightly and add to the labor required to keep your home clean.

Stained Or Spotted Dishes

Similar to its effect on bathroom fixtures, hard water can also leave behind residues of mineral deposits on dishes after they’ve been washed, leaving your dishes spotty even when cleaned.

Dry Skin & Hair

Perhaps one of the worse effects of hard water, the high concentration of minerals present can be harsh on skin and hair. While you’re probably safe from any extreme, long-term consequences, washing with hard water can leave your skin and hair feeling dry and itchy.

Reduced Water Pressure & Increased Wear On Appliances

Over time, the excessive amounts of minerals in hard water can accumulate in your plumbing system and appliances, which can greatly reduce their efficiency. Not only can this increase the wear and tear on things like your dishwasher and water heater, but it can also reduce the overall water pressure for your entire home.
