Do You Have Hard Water?
Are you not sure if you have hard water in your house? There are some signs you can look for, including:
- Spots: Look for small, white spots on glassware or dishes after washing them.
- Bottle test: Fill a plastic bottle halfway up with tap water. Put the cap on and shake the bottle. Then, dump out the water. Next, fill the bottle again and add a few drops of soap to it. Shake the bottle and look for suds. The longer you have to shake the bottle to get suds to form, the harder your water likely is.
- Low water pressure: If you notice low water pressure from your shower head and faucets it could be due to a buildup of minerals that are clogging the fixtures.
- Faded clothing: Watch to see if the colors in your clothing are fading, or are wearing out more quickly.
- Irritation: Pay attention to if your skin feels dry or your hair becomes brittle.
- Dry Skin: If your skin has been dryer than usual, it can signal hard water.
- Unpleasant taste: If you buy bottled water to compensate for the unpleasant taste of your water, then you most likely have hard water supplied to your home.
- Damaged appliances: Hard water corrodes and damages the insides of the appliances that use them, causing them to break down more often because they have to work harder to use the hard water.
- Stains: If you’ve noticed a white film accumulating on your glass shower doors, faucets, shower heads, sinks, and even on glasses which have been washed in the dishwasher, you have hard water.
