The water that comes into your home or business can contain a variety of chemicals and minerals that can affect not only the taste and appearance of your water, but also the efficiency of your plumbing, the life of your appliances, and even the health of your family, employees, or yourself.

While your municipality may do a great job at testing public drinking water, it has to run through miles of piping to get to you, and it picks up impurities along the way. Metals, salts, and other compounds are commonly found in water considered safe for human consumption. While they may be present at safe levels, it is often desirable to remove them to improve the quality of the water and minimize its wear and tear on systems in your home or business. That’s why it’s important to have your water analyzed by water quality professionals who can determine what’s present in the water, and recommend steps you can take to remove potentially harmful elements.

Is hard water making your life hard?

Hard water is water that has percolated through limestone or chalk deposits and consequently has a high mineral content. While hard water is not generally harmful, it can wreak havoc on your pipes, appliances, and fixtures. It can reduce flow in your pipes and form a hard-to-remove scale on surfaces and in dishwashers, washing machines, and faucets, causing them to work inefficiently and eventually fail.

In addition, hard water is a nuisance for cleaning. Soaps, detergents, and shampoos don’t work as well as with soft water. Homeowners struggling with hard water notice that their laundry doesn’t come as clean as it should, so clothing, towels, and sheets can become scratchy and smelly.
