What’s the harm in hard water?

Hard water harms nearly every item in your home, leaving mineral deposits and scale build-up on everything your water touches. Hard water is especially tough on plumbing and on water-using appliances, resulting in more repairs and more frequent replacement – and costing Americans billions of dollars a year.


The consequences of hard water in the home:


  • Pipes become clogged with scale, reducing water flow
  • Water heaters scaled with mineral deposits require significantly more energy to heat your water
  • Rust stains on sinks
  • Faucets crusted with hard-to-remove deposits
  • Towels and clothes are dingy and rough
  • Glassware and dishes marred by spots and cloudiness
  • Increased expenses for detergent and other cleaning products
  • More time and effort devoted to cleaning


Enjoy the advantages of conditioned water:


  • Extend the life of your water heater, fixtures, dishwashers, and laundry equipment by years
  • Cut spending on detergents and other cleaning supplies – by as much as half
  • Increased water heater efficiency
  • Clothes are cleaner, softer, and last longer
  • Dishes and glassware will sparkle
  • Eliminate the hassle and expense of bottled water
  • Clean, healthier drinking water
  • Better flavor in coffee, soups and ice cubes
  • Great lather with less soap and shampoo
  • Everything – hair, towels, fruit – rinses cleaner
  • Improved water flow through cleaner pipes
