When you shower or wash clothes, do you feel it’s almost not enough – as if it could be cleaner? Or the soap hasn’t yet reached its full potential? These are signs that you might have hard water in your home. Unfortunately, hard water is not to be taken lightly as there are more drawbacks than most of us can imagine.
If you feel as though you are forever throwing away kettles or having to buy de-scaler due to limescale build-up, you may well live in a hard water area. Hard water is water that has an array of minerals in it such as calcium, magnesium, and sulfur and it is these minerals that cause the build-up on our appliances. Hard water isn’t bad for us, but it doesn’t bode well with showerheads and taps, so maybe you might need a water softener at home if this sounds like your current situation.
