What Is Hard Water, And How Can You Tell You Have It?

Business Blog

When you first move into your new house, you are going to find out a whole lot of things as you are settling in. Some of them will be good, and some of them will not be so good. One of the things that you might find out about is your water. You might find that you have hard water, which is something that you can fix relatively easily. So, what exactly is hard water, and how can you tell you have it?

Hard Water

Hard water is really dependent on where you live and what kind of rock predominantly makes up your area. As water is absorbed by the ground and goes into an aquifer, it filters through the rock. As it filters through the rocks, it absorbs some of the molecules from that rock. That is what "hardens" water. Different rocks are made up of different things, and those things affect how hard the water is. For example, limestone is made up of a lot of calcium, as well as lime. The water goes through the rock, absorbs the molecules, and settle into the aquifer, where it picks up more calcium and lime. Then the water is drawn up into the water supply and goes to your house. How can you tell that you have hot water?

Lack of Suds

Hard water and soap don't get along all that well. The harder the water, the harder it is going to be for you to get a nice head of suds. The soap will still clean, but it just won't be sudsy, which may make you feel like it isn't cleaning anything well. Along with the lack of suds, you are going to have a hard time rinsing the soap all the way off. It will feel like it has left a film on your skin, your dishes, or whatever else, and it will also feel like it just hasn't been rinsed off as well as it could be. 


Another thing that you are going to see is a scale buildup, especially around your faucets. The scale is usually white, and it can be scraped off the faucet or dissolved with vinegar. The scale is made up of the residue of whatever minerals are in the water. 

If you have just discovered that you have hard water, then you can do something about it. Getting a water treatment system, either for your whole house or for particular faucets, can help you with your hard water problem.
