As someone who takes pride in your person and home, you wouldn’t think of going to work in dirty clothes. Serving a meal on dirty dishes. Or inviting guests over without first cleaning your bathroom from top to bottom.
The point? Well, each of the above actions involves water. And yet, the vast majority of U.S. households have hard water conditions.
Here are the primary telltale symptoms:
- A filmy haze on your drinking glasses.
- Whitish scaly deposits on your faucets, shower doors or tea kettle.
- Scaly deposits you can’t see, but nevertheless are damaging the inside of your pipes, dish washer, and other appliances.
- Dry, dull skin and hair.
- Whites that turn yellow in the wash, and colors that fade.
Other Common Water Problems.
Acidic Water – Water with a low pH factor (less than 6.5) can be highly acidic and corrosive. If, for example, you notice a blue-green stain on your laundry, sinks, or drains, chances are your water needs to be treated. Acidic water also can leach unhealthy levels of metal ions – such as lead, manganese, and copper – into your fresh water supply.
Excess Iron – How can you tell if there’s too much iron in your water? By the brown stains in your toilet or on your clothes…definitely not a pretty sight.
Chemical Contamination – This is the most serious of all water problems. Excess levels of radon, industrial waste, chlorine, nitrates, and other chemicals can cause serious health issues…the kind, though, that can readily be prevented and eliminated.
