Over two-thirds of the earth’s surface is covered by water, but less than 0.3 percent of the earth’s total water supply is usable by humans.

The demand on water supplies is growing exponentially. Clearly, understanding and using scarce water resources wisely is vital. Our very survival as a species depends on it.

Hard Water is found in more than 85% of the United States.   Water in the Intermountain West is generally 3 – 5 times harder than the national average.   Severe drought conditions and overpopulation have simply made things worse throughout the nation.

Governments around the world, at all levels, are investing hundreds of billions of dollars to improve infrastructure and water quality standards. In addition, most homeowners are relying on modern home water treatment systems to assure an ample supply of fresh, clean water for their families.

You’re not alone if you’re concerned about the water you and your family drink. More than three quarters of Americans don’t believe their household water supply is as good as it could be. In a recent poll, 47 percent of respondents reported they wouldn’t even drink water straight from the tap.

The quality of water in your home makes all the difference to your lifestyle: -

Impurities in hard water can react with certain chemicals found in soaps and detergents to form a gummy, insoluble curd. This soap curd clings stubbornly to everything it touches. The ring around your bathtub is curd. Soft water makes bathing betterThat same curd causes your hair to become dull and hard to manage. Soap curd clogs skin pores and prevents your natural oils from moisturizing your skin. This dryness causes itching and also can aggravate skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema and acne. Soap curd is especially noticeable by the scummy film that it forms on dishes, glassware, walls and floors. Hardness and other dissolved solids combine to form the residue you see as spots on glasses, crockery, cutlery and shower enclosures.

Laundry washed in hard water takes on a gray color and wears out faster than expected. With hard water in your washing machine, it’s almost impossible to wash clothes white – even when you use large amounts of detergent and bleach Minerals and insoluble particles in hard water trap dirt and soap curd in the fabric of your clothes and linens. These deposits give fabric a dull gray “washed-out” look and cause the clothing fibers to be brittle. Your clothes and linens then feel harsh and rough – they deteriorate faster.

Some vegetables such as peas and beans become tough and unpalatable when cooked in hard water. Baking with hard water imparts an undesirable taste from the hardness minerals into your food. Tea, Coffee and other beverages prepared with hard water taste awful and often contain flakes of hardness.

Perhaps the greatest damage done by hard water is the damage that you can’t see until it’s too late. Water heaters, humidifiers, boilers and household pipes become lined with an increasingly thick layer of calcium and magnesium scale. As this scale builds up, the water flow in your pipes diminishes to such a point that new piping is the only option to remedy the situation.

Hard water scale inside a water heater forms an insulating layer that prevents the burners or heating elements from heating the water efficiently. Just 1/8″ of scale inside the tank can require up to 30% more fuel to heat the water to the desired temperature.
